I slowly eased my shoes off and threw them as far away from me as possible – my feet were in bits.
As some of you may know, this week I started work in a kitchen based in a family centre. Catering to many young mouths, my job involves a lot of multitasking and a lot of smiles!
Each day we provide babies, wobblers (a new word I learned for babies that are about 1-2 years old), toddlers and pre-schoolers with breakfast and dinner throughout the day, as well as catering to any food specifications they may have.
With a rotating menu that’s open to change, though it may be simple, I reckon the meals would satisfy most tummies – a decent Shepherd’s Pie is tough to beat.
Much to my delight, though I’ve only been here a week, the children are super lovely and even the Pre-Schoolers greet me with a “Hi Úna” and a wave.
Without sounding cheesy, it’s actually such a relief to be back working with a team, where you meet new people but also get to know the regulars. For me, there’s only so much satisfaction that you can get from working at home.
I come home sweaty and tired, but incredibly satisfied and fall into bed as early as I can – Hence why I haven’t been updating my blog as much as I’d like to.
They say that it takes a few weeks for your feet to adjust to standing up all day and I’m sure I’ll get into the swing of things soon.
I’m happy and that’s what counts.
