Anyone else experiencing the back to work blues? I could hardly sleep last night fretting about my lessons tomorrow, I hate back to work anxiety! Sometimes I think it would be better not to have so long at Easter x
Ha! No I have the back to school yippees! I love my kids to bits but working and juggling 3 littles is hard work! Mind you I realised 2/3 of them have an inset day tomorrow - so just a yip really and the yippees for Tuesday!! So many orders to make and get posted
The jewellery is my job so no time off for good behaviour here. And I gave up my saturday to go to a gem/ bead show so I could go and see my tame lapidarist to discuss with him the cutting of the spectrolite slabs I bought in Finland whilst I was there on a ‘business trip’. Its a hard life having to spend time looking at (by which I obviously mean buying) shiny things but I’ve got some beauties for the stash.
I’m with you on that one Susan @dottiedesigns - when my two were younger I longed for them to head back to school but now they are almost grown up (18 and 19) I love it when they are home even though it does mean I get very little done. As for back to work blues - I get that every Monday morning (and tuesday, wednesday …!)
One child and one husband back at school tomorrow, 1 child still off till Tuesday. Husband has the back to school blues but the kids are fine!
I totally have the back to work blues. Worst nights sleep ever just before we go back- last night was no different and now I just feel miserable!
I just returned to work last week after being off for 3 months, did not sleep at all for about three nights.
My daughter had them! she’s 6, and this morning we had “I have a tummy ache! an ear ache! a head ache! I hurt my ankle yesterday I can’t walk . . .”
We missed the line but we made it for the register . . .
I’ve got another week off so not yet but I do get them and I only work a few hours! I only have one school age child now - he’s revising for GCSEs but I love having him at home. My other son has just gone back to uni and I will miss having him around.
I get the back to work blues every Monday morning! I’d much rather be crafting full time than working for someone else but needs must. I only had Good Friday and Easter Monday off but I definitely had back to work blues on the Tuesday. I lose track of the school hols now both my kids have left. My son was back from Uni at Easter though, so that was nice.
I’d love to get back to work but at the moment that seems to consist of sending emails, typing up invoices and and sorting out expenses.
Well done - gold sticker for you then fighting against all of that!
I get the poor nights sleep in the run up to the return to school. I didn’t have too bad a day today though x
How awful, did you get on ok? X
Errggh I did. I also blame the fact that I went on a 30mile bike ride yesterday too- so I’m a bit sore! Haha glad yours wasn’t so bad though! Mines always better on the Monday night. I have a Monday night ritual where after dinner I have a bath then have an early night and just read my book in bed. It helps me have a good nights sleep on the Mon night and sets me up for the week. Haha
Utter misery! No free time until Wed afternoon this week, extra revision for y11 and a faculty meeting tomorrow.
For the first time in my life I don’t go to work or run a business (apart from my little shop here)- it’s not as great as it sounds I keep browsing on Indeed.
I feel your pain. Mine have 5 lessons left until final coursework deadline but what’s this? An unannounced round of mock exams that haven’t been calendared and happen to fall on three of my five remaining lessons…yay! :@
We have about 20 lessons to go, no coursework, and, joy of joys, it’s the bottom set. Some have just realised that they won’t be getting a C grade…
