Friday, 10 June 2011, Day 199/365.
This is the tram stop I stop at in the city to go to work and vice versa to get home.
I like it how my new workplace is nice and close to the tram so it’s just that bit quicker to get to and from work. I also like how I’m now working reasonable hours, that is 7.5 hours per day rather than 8.5.
I could never do 8.5 hours per day as a school mum. I didn’t want to put my son in before and after school care which meant I hardly ever started at 8.30am but 9am.
I could never hang around till 5.30pm to leave the office because I had to hoof it to the tram and then get to the school by 6pm. This meant that I either didn’t have lunch or had 15 minutes for lunch, or had to make up the time on my day off.
It’s so much less stressful now even though I don’t know if I’ve got work past September yet.
