I am really struggling at the moment trying to find some sort of sensible balance between work and family. I have a very demanding job and work 4 long days a week (full time) and have some really stressful exams to pass in just over 12 months. However, once they are done I should be able to work 2 or 3 days a week and have a lot more quality family time. Nevertheless, it really gets to me that I have to spend so much time away from my gorgeous kids at the moment, especially when they are so young and growing up so quick. I am doing it for the end goal of course, but it’s hard to keep that in mind all the time. I’m sure I’m not alone among working mums in asking is it all really worth it?! Perhaps I should just stay home with the kids, perhaps have another one or two!
