Thursdays always mean the end of the week to me, actually my weekend has always started on Wednesday in my head and I just love the feeling that you only have one day of work left and then you can go home stay up late and do whatever you want. Yes, that does mean I am back to work. I finally got a new job, not the best of jobs, but I am back doing what I love and that is writing code. After a 4 month vacation (note to self: don’t ever think about taking that long a vacation again) I am finally back in the workforce. Work means alot to me, it’s a place to spend 8+ hours everyday and just do my thang. I am a self-confessed workaholic, I think my Mum is the reason why, she always taught us to be productive and a person who produces nothing is worthless. She herself has always been a working mother, but she’s a doctor, and I have always come to believe that that is one of the most noble jobs in the world. She is a supermum, really she is. She is always around when we need her and is into every nook and cranny of our lives. No matter how hard a day she’s had, she still has time for her little babies ( sometimes I think we will always be her babies no matter how old we become) and will always make sure that she asks how our day went and what we did. If I have a problem I always know that she will be there for me not just to listen but also to lend a shoulder to cry on and a helping hand. When I first graduated, she would go through the newspapers and make clippings of any job computer related, most of which were unsuitable. Yet in this last job search, she has become so much better at it and even though she’s a thousand miles away and married she would still go online and job search for me. That’s why to me a family means support, it means holding someone’s hand when they feel lost and helping them through the maze of life. My mother has always done that for me and taught me how to do it too.
I love you Mummy, you are my superstar.
