Hi guys am in need of your opinions.... I work as a veterinary nurse and currently on mat leave which ends in december. I really enjoy my job but the wages are quite low. Hubby is self employed and has said that i don't have to go back to work. I don't want to go back to work full time as i will miss out on my boy's milestones. I just don't know whether its going to be worth going back part time.. it would give me a little bit of adult contact, the down side are ... 1. none of the nurses that i work with have kids or are married. so probably would understand if i;ve had a bad night 2. The head nurse don't have very good interpersonal skills, beware if she is in a bad mood!! 3. my mum lives 30 mins away and doesn't drive, and work is 25 mins away from her house. 4. child care i've looked at is full time £140-£160 per week or part-time £24-38 per hr. 5. i earn just over £900 per month. i'm starting to think its not really worth going back -after child care aand fuel i'll almost be working for free... What do you guys think???
