into London, better paid job.

Nursery costs for 2= £2400 (£2600 at another)
Travel to work=£146

AIBU to be upset that the only option may be leaving a well paid job because whilst we can just scrape by on DH salary with certainly can't afford for me to pay £450 to work :-(

How do people do it? I'm proud of my job

It is awful and my heart goes out to you. Our situation will be similar when we (hopefully) have DC2. If we were younger I would go for a bigger gap, but I'm 37.

I'm sorry, there is no easy answer.

I feel for you. My brother and sister in law paid something like £40 a day for their two kids.

It's £50 a MONTH here in Sweden.
