Tendered

Was reading through the entry stating that I have tendered (9 long years ago).

I signed employment letter a few days ago n tendered today!

New employer is nice to allow me to work on a part time basis till after little E goes into childcare in Aug. Will only start full time in Sep, I think this arrangement is good to allow me to slowly get into the swing of things too.

With little E still waking up to latch 1-2 times in the middle of the night, I really dunno if I can function well manz. The gd thing is it is easier to latch than make a bottle of milk n I seemed to be somewat used to this already. He is the first boy who direct latch for so long n I hope to carry on breastfeeding him as long as possible at night without having to pump once I start work.

As for the EC, we r looking at the possibly left over units. Any concern for ground floor if it is Olympic pool facing? 🙂

Guess mainly privacy and noise issue? Especially if it’s a big development with many kids. And hope not near rubbish chute or some common gates? The opening and closing noise and traffic noise can be irritating. Does it have a big patio or garden? These areas still count towards the psf and not worth it. Just my layman thoughts. May not be accurate. I’m still a HDB person.

@jgg it is in quite a secluded corner, Olympic pool not so noisy, hence we felt worth considering. Or we can get a higher floor unit that is pool facing,  much cheaper but smaller size leh. So kind of dilemma.

Are you still in the journalism line (did I rem corrrectly?) after you move?

Ahhhh the bf journey! Kudos to the night feeds and for so long! For me, mei mei latched better and I was just happy to have reached my 1yr target 😛 It was tough to pump at work…the guilt of stepping away and the constant worry that I’m not pumping enough >.<

Hmm I think for ground floor units, noise and privacy are main considerations. And perhaps also more susceptible to the intrusion of pests? I also often see my ground floor units complaining about high rise litter that end up on their patio or balcony. I like the space though! They are usually bigger 🙂

I had been doing coms in the service sector since I left 9 long years ago. New job still coms in social service/healthcare sector, looking forward to the exciting change!
