I work a 3 day week. I came home tonight , feeling like I had just started the week and it’s already finished , work wise anyway. Part of me feels lazy & spoilt , but mostly I feel relief. Even though it has flown by since Monday , it is fully jam packed and I am exhausted. The thought of perhaps adding another day into my world of work is on my mind, solely for financial reasons. Well , I say solely, I do feel pressure from my OH to earn more money. He sees my part time status as indulgent , he is older than me and feels that he should be the one who is stepping down from life. He feels envy. I believe all mothers should work part time where possible. I do most things in our family , this is my own doing, taking responsibility for all of it , but it is still a fact. I do a full time job with a home , 2 kids a dog and an anxiety ridden mother. Then there is my 3 day a week side job. That’s my take on it. I may go up to 4 days … But I doubt I will ever do a 5 day week again. Life’s too precious and money is overrated.
