It’s been 1 and a half years since I left work. I have 2 years off in total, so I have a few months to go! I love spending time with my little boy, that is so precious to me! Money is always an issue and recently with one car we had to get rid off, things keep adding up! I’ve got behind on my bills and feel like I should have gone back to work earlier. It’s a catch 22 , we don’t have the money or car to go on a family holiday but if I go back to work, won’t have the time to go on a holiday but will have the money. Some days I’m really happy as I love being a mum, other days things just get to me! Probably because I have the time to think about it over and over again. All the joys of being a stay at home mum!

  • Besides working from home would part time work help?


  • What the mum below me said, what about trying to work from home if you can?


  • Perhaps you could look at doing some sort of work from home, so that you could continue to enjoy your family, and still earn some money. Then you’d have the best of both worlds.

    • Working from home is a good suggestion; if it works for you.


  • Being a stay home mum is the most rewarding thing in my life at the moment
