Bit Of Me Time

Searching for more time …

New direction


Help, I’m late, it’s Wednesday and I’m just joining The Monday Club with Sarah Miles


It must be something about New Year, or perhaps it’s a mid-life crisis (early of course!) but I have a definite feeling that I need a new direction.  Not my home life, I certainly would not be without Husband, Daughter, Son or Lovely Dog, but I am definitely feeling the need to fill my days with something new and exciting.

I was not a brilliant student as school, so left with a mere smattering of O Levels (as they were then), and went to do a secretarial course, which has done me proud – I’ve travelled the world and always been able to pay my way.  Unfortunately I’m a little indecisive, so when it comes to finding a new direction, I’m at a bit of a loss!  Then there’s the lifestyle to consider.  Currently I work in a school, alongside Husband, it’s a mile from home and, whilst I do go in during the holidays, I get more than the basic four weeks’ annual leave in a year.  It’s a huge amount to give up, and if I don’ really know what I want to do, maybe I’d better start counting blessings, instead of dreaming!which way

So now it is my mission to try to fathom which way to go, or really think about exactly how much I’d be giving up.

  2. I was thinking more along the lines of “lottery winner”!!!

  3. I know how you feel- the great thing is you have the security of a good job while you consider.

    • Yes, I need to concentrate on the amount of time off I get in the holidays and let the rest wash over me!! Then I can make plans for when they are both a little older.
