It has now been 5 months since I closed my shop and have not worked. I have been busy with school pick up and drop off, cooking, cleaning, my time on the computer, washing, gardening and just the other chores that a mother has to do. I am starting to wonder how I ever coped while working full time. I am starting to feel guilty however that my partner works long hours and I am at home, but I am enjoying it, well for now anyway but I know I will get bored soon.

  • great to read this story


  • You’re doing a great job to. It’s like working, without getting paid.


  • You are doing a valuable job also. Imagine if you had to pay someone to do all that you do. Do not put down your own jobs just because you are not paid for them.


  • Don’t feel guilty, he couldn’t work those long hours if you weren’t looking after things at home :)
