I am grateful for flexible working arrangements that allow Adam and I to take the following circumstances in our stride:

Last night Adam went to the pub after work and left his car at work over-night.
I was giving a talk about the P&C at kindy orientation this morning between 9:15 and 10:30am.
Caitlin was attending a singing workshop as part of the Northern Sydney Region Enrichment Day for Gifted & Talented Students from 9:30am to 2:30pm at Bobbin Head about 25 minutes drive from our place.
Adam dropped me and the boys at school and took Caitlin to the workshop where he was told that at 2:30pm the kids would be putting on a 25 minute concert.
So instead of dropping the car at school, so I could go to work, and catching the train in to the office he decided he’d better work from home so that there’d be someone at home when the boys got home.
I finished at school and drove Adam home then headed off to work, did a couple of hours there and then went to pick Caitlin up.
As it happened I ended up getting home before the boys because the bus was late but it was very nice to not have to worry about it.

The singing workshop seems to have been a big hit, Caitlin had a lovely day and concert was very impressive. There were 13 kids in the group, some of them very talented indeed. They were taught by a lovely guy whose name I didn’t catch and also had coaching from someone who’d been on Australian Idol whose name Caitlin can’t remember (apparently like mother like daughter when it comes to memory for names :P). Anyway, it’s pretty cool that the kids were offered such a great opportunity – something else to be grateful for!

With a nod of the head in Ariane‘s direction, who has been writing regular gratitude posts.

  1. Oh yes, amen to flexible working conditions. I work from home and arrange meetings in Wellington city for when the kids are at school. And DH, though he generally does 5 days in the office, can take whatever time he wants, whenever to be at home if I can't or to see the kids do kid stuff. We take it for granted. Thanks for reminding me to be grateful. Note veryone has it that good!
