I have to as need the money but am permanently shattered and it's making me a bad mum! can anyone empathise? I'm just tired all the time.

Yes. I empathise. I don't have any advice as I have worked myself into a heart condition and don't recommend going that far!

Yep, id love to go part time and have more time at home with the kids plus not work so late then be up early leaving me knackered

Unfortunately my rent and bills won't pay themselves though!

It's shit being a grown-up, isn't it?

How many hours do you mean when you say 'all the time'?

YANBU that sounds tough flowers

Yes. The way my hours work leave me little or no time to socialise, apart from the odd week day when my friends are actually at work. It's shite.

I'm currently in the process of upping my hours to 4 days a week from three. I really don't want to do it as I have 4 kids and do shift work nights/ weekends etc which is really tiring. I'm dreading it but dh's job is at risk and I feel I need to secure extra hours in case he loses his job.

I am exhausted from working, I get home and sleep, no life at all.
I hate it. But mortgage and bills.

I hear you, Working sucks, being a grown up sucks.
how old are the DCs? Do you have a respite from the free childcare hours to look forward to?

BinaryFinary Sun 24-Jan-16 12:24:24

Yup. I hear you. I work all week and weekends are spent trying to catch up with the cleaning / laundry / household admin and no time for fun. It's shit

I know exactly how you feel. I work 50 hours a week over two jobs and I'm a single mum of two. I'm lucky to have great family support but I constantly feel exhausted and guilty that I hardly ever see my kids.

Being a grown up is rubbish.

YANBU. Being a grownup is not the fun I thought it must be as a child. It's all paid work, housework and worrying.
