Possible career change?

I went back to work in May, 3 days a week, DDs are nearly 6 and 15 months. I really didn't want to go back, but I have given it 4 months but I really don't want to be at work. I am pretty sure I have run out of steam; my job share is strange and uncomfortable I am not interested in the work, the people or the sector any more, and its not really going anywhere. i feel like I have "done it all before".

Also I really want to be around my children more, I don't want to miss the next few years of their lives working in a job that I am coming to hate and I hate the round of childcare arrangements and constantly chasing to cover care and work.

I am pretty certain that i want to study again, but I would feel extremely guilty about giving up a decent job and salary and it would be years before I was earning at the same level again. We could survive just about, but life will be quite a bit tighter for everyone. It all feels horribly self indulgent to even be considering it.

Has anyone made the move? How did it go? Are you happier at home/doing what you care about than working but being financially secure?

It sounds like you need to make a change. I say go for it!!!
