Episode 8 - So my interview went ok I think – except for the advice to ‘make a great first impression’ – does a pancake blob count as a good impression?! Only for true fans of pancakes perhaps.

Hello, my name is Alice, and this is my diary. I thought I’d start this week by updating my CV. “It’ll only take me an hour” I thought – wrong! Three hours into my brain freeze I had to stop as I got a call from the school nurse to “come and pick your […]

Episode 7 - Aaaghhhrrr! It’s my first interview today and as (bad) luck would have it, the only time they could give me was 9:30…in the city! This is going to be a challenge but I’m trying to see the positive and treating it as a practice run for when I’m working again.

Episode 5 - Mmm, where did I get to last time? Oh yes, hubbie and I were going to have a chat. It’s interesting actually that so much was assumed, on both of our parts. We started to work out together exactly how things like school drops offs would work, who’d come back if our daughter was sick during the day, school holiday breaks etc.

Episode 4 - Alice finds someone to help her prepare… I had a result! I found this great company to help me and they’ve given me some really great tips to help me update my CV. I was so worried that any experience I did have was out of date and not enough, not to mention not having a clue how to set it out and word things now.

Hello, my name is Alice, and this is my diary.  As Aussie parents know, this week meant the first day (back) to school. For those going through this for the first time, you’ll know that it is a heady mix of trepidation, expectation, excitement and dread!!
