As you all know… I will be going for my maternity leave soon… some others actually will take 1 or 2 weeks in advance prior to their date of delivery… but for me… I’m hoping that I could at least hang around until it is really the actual day of delivery.. or probably at least 1 or 2 days (when the contractions starts to kick in)…. cos this period of the year just happened to be towards the ending of my peak period… and just last week … our manager informed us that she had officially tendered her resignation to the partner….
And that news doesn’t really add on well on the team … given that her last day of work will be end of May and i’m commencing my leave in like early June… the whole team (although there will be a new manager coming in this week) will be left with the juniors to tough it out… It does worries me abit as to whether the juniors would be able to cope with the work load…. but i know that i won’t be of much help either … since with the newborn i would be focusing on her for awhile… probably until i get the hang of taking care of her (although my mum is helping out …)
Actually I’m wasn’t as shocked as the juniors when I heard that my manager had tendered … well she had told me before that she had plans for other stuffs which were of more priorities in her life… and as for me… I’m glad that the baby came in time … the 4 months of maternity leave was just in the nick of time that I could have a long break away from the hectic work load (especially since now my manager will be leaving… I can pretty much guessed that my work load will definately increase alot more)
Can’t wait for my leave to commence soon….
