I was discussing future work plans with my old boss a couple of weeks ago, she asked me if I had any plans to resume my previous role in the near future.
I'm not, sure the perks were great but I am more than happy to have Sadie as my boss for a while longer (don't tell her she's the boss, I think I have her fooled).
This got me thinking about what I'd be doing with my time once she heads off to school (still a few years away yet) and I get past the water works.
Ideally I'd like to continue (paid) work a couple of days a week and also do some volunteer work in between.
There are so many charities that need help, and so many that I would like to help but there's only so much time in the day and the Starlight Foundation is one I've always had a soft spot for.
Especially now having a child of my own, I am so blessed, she's a healthy little munchkin.
I can't (and honestly don't want to) imagine what it must be like to be a parent with an ill child. The Starlight peeps aren't working on curing diseases, but what they do is put smiles on kids faces when they really need it.
So I jumped on their website to see what kind of things you can do and low and behold they were in need of people for Starlight Day. I didn't hesitate, I signed up straight away.
So tomorrow I'll be selling merchandise for Starlight Day and I am really looking forward to it.
Keep an eye out for the yellow and purple, if you don't happen to come across any sellers
you can donate on their site www.starlight.org.au
