Not to say I'm going back to a workplace that is totally unbearable or that I work with dreadful people. Neither are the case - I'm lucky that my profession (consulting and project management) is both interesting and rewarding. I'm really lucky.
I see the contestants on Masterchef and although I have not even a speck of an inkling to participate, I understand why the thirty-somethings and forty-somethings are there. I'm sure a good portion of them have dreams of being celebrity chefs with book deals but I'm sure there's an equal portion of the contestants where responsibility got in the way of their food dream. I can totally relate to that latter portion.
So friends, don't panic - I fully intend to keep frills going because if I'm honest I'm going to need it more than ever as my 'happy place' and my 'time out'. I'm only going to be working part-time - and commuting long hours which will give me time to write... (still can not decide between the iPad2 and the Galaxy.. anyways....)
I still have big dreams for frills (no it's not a book! I can't tell you how many people have asked me when my book is coming out??!) and I'm sure going to work isn't going to be an obstacle to making that happen, probably the opposite. I can see a lot more slowcooker and fast food on friday posts coming and of course, there will always be Sunday baking project and the less than 30 minutes categories getting a work out.
Everyone gives up a dream for responsibility - it could be living overseas, it could be driving a mini-bus for your five kids instead of that much lusted after vespa you'd love to escape on. Have you given up a dream because of responsibilities?
