Update on working and caring

After many deliberations and draft letters to my boss and discussions with Mick I decided to tell it as is to my boss about Mick and my caring /working role as expected it was a bit emotional 😢 but I did it 😃 I also spoke to Mick about our finances and if we could afford for me to work part time now that his health is declining as a result of that I asked my boss if that would be a possibility and she said yes so at the moment that is being sorted out .I do feel better for speaking to my boss and I know the pressure will be lifted balancing work and home once I go part time . Many thanks for your support and Hope you are all feeling well today and the sun is shining were you are Pam😄
