Back to work...

At the end of last year I was starting to think I was ready to take on a little more paid work. Then in a stroke of amazing luck I heard about a book project that was underway. The person working on it resigned just before xmas and the publisher was looking for someone to hand everything over to.

The beauty of this job is I can do it ALL from home - it's supposedly 10-15 hours a week of work. From today I embark on my first foray into the world of book editing. I am looking forward to the challenge - and I am certain that when we approach deadline times it WILL be a challenge. It's a book on travel, which means it should be fun to edit.

I have picked up an extra day at preschool for E this year, so I will try to squeeze 10-15 hours of work into the three days he's there, in between tending to Little Miss T. I reckon it's doable - hope so, because I've already signed the contract!

Good luck and congrats!
It's such a challenge finding work that allows you to still be at home with your kids yet continue a career that you love.

At 8pm after the kids go to bed,
I make myself a coffee, and start work, i usually finish 10.30pm.
Plus a couple of hours during the day!! Love it!!!
