I touched upon this in a previous post that something is going on with my partner’s job.
The very basic is that his hours have been cut, they were cut back after Christmas. Which was fine, we could cope, then in March they were cut back a bit further, which meant that the core pay I budget for was not enough, then recently they have cut them back even further.
Which means we are struggling for anything that is not the basics on some weeks. Its a pain and he loves his job, but we can’t keep limping on like this, so for the last few weeks he has been looking for something else and he thinks he has found something.
I am not sure on it, its the same distance as his last job, but its set hours, more money and still weekly pay. It does sound to be good to be true, because if he does get it, it means me finding a job will be much easier, as we won’t have to worry about childcare for Monkey.
If it all goes to plan, I will get a night job, so what we are looking at is, I get home take monkey to school, or we put monkey into breakfast club and my partner takes him and then goes onto work. I sleep till about 2pm, get up and then pick Monkey up from school.
Spend the afternoon together, then I head to work around 10pm till 7am and then we start over again.
What would be ideal, is if we keep this going for 3-4 years, by which time, we will have cleared off our remaining debts and bought the furniture we need, then we would start looking at having fun and holidays.
Both myself and my partner are thinking this is the way to go for now. Of course it relys on a few things, like him getting this job, me getting a job and my mental health behaving itself.
