10 months

Another week has flown by. My weeks are busy. I go to various mums and tots groups on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, i work on a Wednesday and meet up with friends and their babies to swim most Fridays. I can't believe how quickly this year has gone. Caleb was 10months old on Wednesday. Here is my cheeky boy who's now nearly walking. He is a lot of fun!
Im back at work now one day a week. I hate where i work now. I work for a charity with only 5 people and its awful. There are a lot of lies, backstabbing, corruptness... it's shocking. I work for a boss who rarely shows up. I do the same job (and better in my opinion) as a guy with no experience but who is paid £10,000 more it. Its a corrupt place, full of injustices which could turn you into a bitter person if you didnt rise above it. Thankfully funding is nearing an end and changes are afoot, which will mean reapplying for jobs, but im glad. It's a scandal that the place can run as it is.

This week im off to a wedding down south. Im going on my own as Caleb wasn't invited and DH has work. 2 child-free nights in a beautiful hotel, with a gym, swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna! Bliss! Will be very strange being on my own and i'll miss my boys but i am really looking forward to it as well! I got a beautiful Karen Millen dress off ebay to wear to the wedding.

Ive finished and mailed 2 Christmas ornaments this weekend so i will be able to show pictures of them soon. Have a good week!

A great picture of Caleb! He could be the Gerber baby he's sooooo adorable! Keep your chin up about work. Things hopefully will change for the better soon. I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for you.

Wow, Caleb has grown and I can't believe that it's 10 months already. Have a fun weekend away, although I know that your thoughts will be with your boys.

Oh, Caleb's such a big cheery fellow!!

My DH and I were just talking about how shocking our workplace is. The least competent people keep getting promoted, and more and more of the talented people are trying to get away (difficult to do these days, but they're trying). We have all our fingers and toes crossed that it will be better once we are in Maine.

Great picture, he looks so happy. It doesn't seem possible that much time has passed. Sorry work isn't going so well, hope it improves in the future. Have a wonderful time at the wedding and enjoy a bit of time to yourself.
