Can somebody please remind me why I teach full time?
I have a lot of nightmare challenging classes, a new and quite difficult HOD who talks at me for hours on end. I spend a small fortune on childcare and don't get to see my own kids as much as those of other people.
Why don't I just take a cut in income, do everything I currently pay other people for myself and get to spend some time with my own lovely children rather than the students at work?

How much do you clear after childcare?

I did. Gave up my tlr and dropped down to 3 days a week. It was the best decision I ever made.

I need to sit down and do the exact sums, rollon, but we don't depend on my income. Which makes going to work even less attractive.
