I will miss.... Spending lots of time with my girls. Spending time with my friends from the Mums at their school that I have made over the last few years (only normally see them briefly in passing when collecting mine on my day off). Having time to read. Feeling relaxed. Having the time to read lots of books. Not having to get my kids to bed so early every night. (Not looking forward to when I go back and realising just how little of the day I spend with them on the average working day.) But... Part of me will enjoy having a bit more routine because my sleep patterns and diet are really out of whack. And I have spent a LOT of time sitting on my bum (at the park/at friend's houses/at home reading/at the cinema with the kids/out at dinners with friends) and am looking forward to being a lot more active without having to think about it.
