I know I'm not the first person to be a mum and an accountant nor the last. I don't want this blog to be patronizing or offensive in anyway but hopefully some mums or potential mums might be able to relate to some of these blogs. It is simply my thoughts and how I'm getting through some of the juggling acts. Also, I know that in a few years I will probably have found something I enjoy doing or some sort of work life balance and will be in a less stressed out place but until then, or as I get there, I think I will vent all my frustrations out on these blogs! And the responses I've had to the blogs have been quite nice which spurs me on to keep going.
My First CPD course
I wrote this blog on 1.3.12, after my first CPD seminar by hand but then never got round to posting it. So here's the main part of the blog.
Today was my first CPD course in after almost two and half years. I felt strangely nervous, I think mainly because I might bump into someone from my old work place and I have to say what I am doing and also it's been a long time since I talked or listened to anyone talk about tax or accounts etc.
Things have moved on in terms of tax and accounts legislation as it would do and I think with a little bit of practical experience it shouldnt be a problem. I got the gist of most of it. And I even thought of some questions but then didn't have the courage (or time) to ask the lecturer about it. Might post it on here later though. Or look it up.
The first thing never happened. I didn't bump into anyone from my old work place. They weren't even on the list. Phew!
