Mummy Moment: Day Away #LFCC

on July 12, 2014

After 13 months of just being a mum (which has nothing wrong with it, but is not for me), in the past 3 weeks I have returned to working a 12 hour week and am now sitting at a train station at 0720 in the morning, about to head off to one of my conventions.

It’s daunting.

I mean, I am not one who gets soppy at leaving my son, but I have never, ever, ever left him alone ALL day. I didn’t even see him before I left. I might not see him when I get in.

It’s all making me feel so anxious and nervous about actually having a day away and I worry that it’ll stop me from enjoying it. Which is ludicrous, but then it’s been over 18 months since a convention and 13 since I’ve been this alone.

Is that my problem, the only child who loves being alone is now scared of a potential 12 hours of lone time?

Just keep positive. Think of all the amazing actors I’m going to meet and all the merchandise I can buy. I want to buy cute geek clothing for my toddler!

Still anxious. Not helped by me stupidly missing my train. Yeah, I wanted a longer day! And yes, I wanted to prove I can’t cope alone. And, yes, indeedy, my week is getting so fucking worse!
