My Shared Parental Leave journey begins!

Off we go!

My out of office now begins:

"I am on Shared Parental Leave until around the end of October 2019."

As of last Friday - and for the next six months - I'm MC's primary caregiver!

To celebrate this daunting fact, my day kicked off with a monumental hangover as work had given me a very lovely send off. Wouldn't it be amazing if a tradition emerged whereby SPL Dads about to embark on their leave came to expect their colleagues to celebrate it with them.

The number of male colleagues genuinely interested, supportive (and some even a bit jealous) was really touching.

Once I'd shaken off the hangover - in glorious Bank Holiday sunshine, we took to London Fields for lunch and hanging out in the park.

First of many good times on SPL to come.
