Things I have discovered (rediscovered)

It's lovely to be able to take / pick up Ellie from school . To listen while she tells me about her day or what she'll be doing . When I was working I'd see her for 10 minutes in the morning while I did her hair (always traumatic !!!) and in the evening for about an hour before she went to bed to read before lights out .
To sit and catch the last of the decent weather with the porch door open either reading , sewing or on the computer with Jazzy by my feet.
To have lunch with my DH at a country pub before picking Ellie up in the afternoon.
To eat when I'm ready instead of when it's time.
To have a lie in when I want.
To have time to do things that I put aside as weekend jobs then found out the weekend went t quickly or was used as recovery time after a 'bad week'
I'm now 'over the other side' of my upsetting past and more relaxed , I've lost some weight and have started a course which I hope will get me back into work
Just had a call - might have some admin work for six weeks starting Monday

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog, Jan. This is a lovely post too - you sound so different. Leaving a dreadful job situation can be life changing in some ways, and you are reaping the benefits now, enjoying life. Even if it is only for a little while before you start a new job, make the most of it!
