Recently the lovely Veronica at Sleepless Nights asked the question – ‘what do you do for a break?’
I considered it. The last magazine I looked at was an online parents one – that I looked at solely for business purposes. The last time I caught up with someone in a cafe for a gas about something other than biz was so long ago I have forgotten and the closest I get to having a lie down is when I have my feet up at the desk while talking, you guessed it, business.
I had to answer – ummmmm, work. I work for a break. It sounded sad. I sounded sad.
But the more I thought about it, the more I realised it really was a break for me. God I love work, and I love it for the following reasons:
- I get to use my brain,
- I get to learn,
- I can control work – what I do and when I do it (unike the kids),
- it’s quiet when I work, and
- I see the rewards of work, whereas with kids, let’s face it, it’s often a thankless job.
That said – all work no play makes Alli a dull girl so I jumped at the chance to take a break watching mummy comedienne, Jenny Wynter, strut her stuff on stage. And even better – she sent me five extra tickets to bring my mums along!
So, if you’re a mum in biz and you need a break, leave a comment below letting me know how often you actually get a break and what you do in that period and five of you will be coming with me for a much-needed laugh. (p.s. you need to be in Melbourne and free the evening of Tue, April 10 to enter)Drawn Thu, April 5.
Cheers! Alli x
