As always, things are changing in our house and as usual I am in panic mode which means sleepless nights and worrying about things that are out of my control. Everything always works out for the best in the end so I should just relax and let go of what I can’t control. But as a worry wart, that’s one thing I can’t seem to do.
On top of that for a week, I’ve not been so well and have been feeling really bunged up. I don’t know if it’s hayfever or I’m coming down with something. I think it’s a mixture of both as it started of with a full body ache and headache. My little one has been a bit ill too and I’m not sure if she has hayfever or is coming down with something too.
With all these changes happening, I’ve been thinking of getting on top of my work too. I can’t spend all my life blogging and doing little pieces of work here and there. Although picking up some writing work has been really enjoyable too and I’m not ready to give that up yet, whatever else happens! However, with the younger one starting school soon, I really should focus on growing my accountancy practice or think about getting more work or going back to work.
Firstly there are too many choices, and secondly all three sound equally appealing and unappealing. The thought of going back to work and going to interviews, fills me with dread. I’ve not done that in years and even before I never looked forward to things like that. Plus there’s the whole trying to fit it in between school runs and sick days etc. Although interacting with people face to face again might be good.
If I focus on growing my accountancy practice, I need to have good processes in place and really hunt down clients that will pay well. The final option which at the moment is my ideal option is to get more subcontract work that is similar to what I am doing right now.
I have days when I really have to motivate my self to work but on the whole the work I do is really enjoyable and I think I am fairly good at it. Getting queries and resolving queries are generally what makes it interesting. Even in past jobs, resolving client queries was the most interesting part of the work.
There is one other place where I did some work for a while which did have the option of solving queries. This was before trying to fit in everything in between school runs got too much. Now that the school runs are not so bad, maybe I can see if they do need any more help.
As per usual and for one of the first reasons this blog started, I am once again torn between what I should be doing, what I want to do and trying to fit it all in between spending time with the family. Again!
