Life is good. Former employers paid me much more than I expected to get in my final pay packet, and I’m really enjoying my new job. Not actually doing much yet, but my colleagues are lovely, and the whole childminder routine feels somehow right and natural. Ceej loves her childminder as well, and always comes back full of beans and in a good mood.
I’m very slowly losing weight, and the Weightwatchers diet has brought my old energy levels back – though I do miss my cheesy snacks. I’ve even found some nice shoes and a very pretty coat. Which is nice. See? I don’t always moan.
