Im due to go back to work after adoption leave in May.
I know I need to go back for at least 3 months. But after that im not sure what I would like to do.

I went to a college open day and there are a few pt courses that I would like to do. Lo is entitled to his 15 hours in September.
I was part time anyway, but would like to severely reduce my hours. Which may not be possible.

I can afford not to go back to work. Money will be tighter. But I can do a college course 1 day a week, get the cleaning out the way while los are at school. Then spend quality time with them.

What job do you currently do? Do you enjoy it?

I work with children. I did enjoy it, but the last few months I was there I just couldnt wait to leave. Not sure if thats just because I wanted some time off. Or it was the job.

My workload was getting more unmanageable, and never had time to breathe some days.
