I am very grateful the school is allowing me to do just two days a week. I do enjoy my job (mostly) and have actually really appreciated the sanity two days away from my kids has given me! I have done the calculations, and not including petrol, my earnings are MINUS £15 a week! It is not forever though. The government want us to work and contribute to society, but anyone with two kids under three need to be earning well above the national minimum to afford to work!
