I can hardly even believe im am writing this post actually about me but here it is…me…redundant. I never thought it would happen and I certainly didn’t expect to feel the way I do about it. It has been an eye opener for sure..
A change of job or career can be daunting for anyone and can stir up a mixture of emotions be it excitement, nerves, a fear of the unknown, will be grass be greener? perhaps not but how will you know if you don’t give it a go right?!
I first came across Diane Von Furstenburg when I watched ‘The City‘ featuring Whitney Port on MTV, I’m not even embarrassed to admit I was a massive fan of ‘The Hills’ back in the day I mean who wasnt right?! I love the colourful DVF offices, the backdrop of New York City and all the fashion involved in the show. A few years later DVF featured in a reality series shown on E! Entertainment here in the UK called ‘House of DVF‘ in the search for a new brand representative. I loved the show and the inspirational way Diane motivated the girls who were competing for the role. Last month I just happened to spot her book “The woman I wanted to be” on the shelf in my local library and I thought I would borrow it and read about her career in retail as that is my what my working background is also. Little did I know the book would be so much more than fashion…but a true inspirational read.
With September merely hours away this got me thinking about all the different transitions that our family will face in the next few weeks.
So we have arrived at the most wonderful time of the year…December to most but in the Henning household this now means Baby time!
I’m writing this post from the comfort of my home whilst maternity leave has commenced and I’m bouncing on a birthing ball, yes you read that correctly 🙂 I would ask you to picture the scene but its all a bit strange I understand!
I have read numerous blogs and posts lately about ladies that are due around the same time as me that are bursting to be off on maternity leave and are done with work and ready to put their feet up. While I do feel like this at times and I am definitely ready to put my feet up I am actually going to miss my 3 days in work. Simply put I skip into work on a Tuesday. It’s not because I cant wait to get rid of my daughter although you may think this after my last post about Olivia (read here) 🙂 I actually enjoy my job and the people who I work with. The adult conversation can be a lifesaver at times.
