Welcome back to life

Life is hectic!  Having worked solidly for the past 18 months I am finally looking forward to my first real break during May for a whole month.  Working as a support worker in the disability sector my work is fulfilling but mentally exhausting.  Then I come home to my kids and it's all happening there as well as they download about their ups and downs during the day.  Following the death of my dad 18 months ago I am also on-call for my aging mother who lives on her own about 15…
