A week of new starts!

This has been one full on week! As well as the usual Mum life, workouts, dog walking and general adulting I’ve managed to bag myself a new job!

I’ve been looking after a team at work for the last week and was offered the job full time. I’m a staff trainer and have been for the last 7 years with the same company. I really had to consider if I wanted to leave everything I had built up in my training and move into being a team leader. That also and the person in the job previously was full time and I’m not ready to commit to full time hours just yet, (T has too many hobbies that she wouldn’t be able to do if I worked full time and it’s not fair to her in the school holidays.)

So I offered more hours but not quite full time and then waited.

Monday about 4pm I found out they were happy to accept my offer 😁

Cue nervous, worried, anxious Lou!

Can I do this?

Was this the right decision?

Will I be able to make it work?

Will I be able to cope with the pressure?

What if I mess up?

What if I don’t like it?

So many questions I felt like my head was about to explode but I came home and my little family were so happy for me it made me feel so much better. I spent the evening in with them instead of going to choir because it’s been a long time since I had a new job so I wanted to do something to celebrate.

They decided to take me to Krispy Kreme and we had such a nice time 😊

I’m still nervous but I’m still learning and I think they appreciate that at work. They aren’t expecting me to be perfect from day 1 and are going to support me so I can make a great job of this which I really want to do.

Hours wise this means I will do 4 days now instead of 3 but working from home one day a week means I can be at home for any appointments that come up and finish before school pick up time so T can still get to riding on a Friday as well as being home for T during the school holidays.

It’s going to be a really bumpy road for the next few weeks as we are still coping with a new system and new staff but I’m really hoping once we get everything figured out I will get into a routine every day and know how to manage everything without feeling overwhelmed.

Scott has been my support as always and is prepared for me being extra stressed and maybe doing extra hours over the next few weeks.

T is happy because in the world of an 8 year old Mummy getting this new job doesn’t really mean her little routine changes much.

So in other news I’m so excited to have been chosen to be a brand ambassador for Just Strong 😁

This brand makes work out clothes for women and has a mission to empower and motivate strong women from every walk of life! Their symbol is a squat because it’s about standing back up after something heavy gets you down and I love that! 🏋️‍♀️

Basically being an ambassador means wearing the clothes and taking at least one selfie a month in them, I take a lot more than one selfie so should be fine 😁 Plus the clothes are so nice! I’ve made my first order and will post a picture once I get them. Here are some of the things they have to offer,

As I’m an ambassador I now have a 10% discount code if you want to treat yourself to something new just use LOUMEA10 at the check out! 😊


So it’s been a pretty full on week for little old me! I will still post my Friday wins post tomorrow so come back and see what else I’ve been winning at this week 😊

Thanks for reading
