My first year of having two kids has come and gone with a big party for my daughters first birthday over the weekend. So the hardest part is over apparently.
Unfortunately, I didn't get the job that I went to an interview for recently. It was a VAT specialist role and the last time I did VAT was in the job before my last over 5 years ago.
