Persephone: Parent

A fine site


on May 1, 2014

Today is officially my last day of maternity leave and something has just struck me. Tomorrow my accrued annual leave starts, taking me through almost until July, but what I realised was that I accrued annual leave for what…?

Seeing as my job for the past 49 weeks was being a mum, is it annual leave from being a mum? Obviously I don’t mean actually parenting Elvis, but can I now take leave from cooking, cleaning, washing?

The thoughts of maximising my afternoons and weekends once I’m back at work were already running through my mind, but now I’m wondering if I should start it before that. In my last few weeks before work and nursery start, should we fill our days with fun and ignore the mundane? For two weeks, no cleaning, more fun. Actual annual leave.

I do have weeks of it stored up!
