I'm on the job.
Here I am hard at work.
I'm not sure why I'm wearing my sunglasses inside, but it seems the thing to do these days.
You see, I actually have a Day Job.
As well as living on the farm, building The Money Pit, kid wrangling three mini me's, and tending to their activities, I go to work.
I work part time as a Property Manager. Or an Asset Manager. Or a bringer together of a Landlord, a Property, and a Tenant.
I really love my job. I've done this work for alot of years. It wasn't the first career I choose though. When I left school I worked with children as a child care teacher. I worked in Long Day Care Centres and Pre Schools and I loved it!
I've also worked in motel reception, at the Electoral Commission counting votes, and various other jobs in between.
I was a stay at home mum for 10 years while my babies were at home, which has been my most favourite job of them all. Mothers Group, mornings in the park, tea parties and afternoon sleeps.
I really miss this. I'll always cherish the time I was at home with them, and I feel very lucky that I was able to do so. Now I'm a working mother who enjoys adult conversations and I get to slide down carpeted stairs on my butt because it's fun.
