Wow, can't believe it's been so long since I posted. So..just a quickie to let you know how things are going.
I'm flat out! New job is going well. Still getting to know everyone and everything but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it soon enough. Everyone is really lovely so I'm very happy (and loving my new pay cheque!).
I'm feeling quite relaxed and stress free. Already have enough money put aside (after only two pays) for any major car repairs that may come up. Now to save towards moving house....but don't think we will have to move as it's supposed to be a 'long term' investment property. Would still like to have the money there just in case though.
I've only just settled into a routine as such this week as the first couple of weeks of my new job were during the school holidays so I took a couple of days off here and there to be at home with the kids. This is my first full week of work and I am knackered!
I know I'll get used to it soon enough. Getting much more organised and preparing everything the night before, so am able to get out of the door relatively early so that I'm home not long after the kids are.
My health and fitness have taken a back seat during the transition period. Didn't go totally off track though. I ordered Lite N Easy for the first two weeks (so I wouldn't fall into bad habits and buy take-away) and that kept me on the straight and narrow.
Watch out summer!
