If in doubt…..

Our heads are exploding. For the first time in 14 years, my husband did an interview for an employed job having been a self-employed sole trader for years. He has been offered the job and is now doing what many people struggle with when balancing employed and self-employed pros and cons: tax, income, stress levels, paperwork, bosses, clients, pressure, staff..the list goes on.

Now the attention is shifted to me with an interview for a job with a good salary coming up next week but located in the opposite direction. We potentially face a stand-off over who gets o earn the bigger crust and who takes over the child-care and dog-sitting – another dilemma presented for many a couple.

In the meantime before you can make decisions on the future you have o deal with the here and now and I am already committed to other part-time jobs closer to home and I hate letting people down. Plus the biggest issue of them all when considering work is available child-care and costs versus salaries.

So for the moment we are both seeking buckets of sand for our heads……like I would imagine many thirty-something couples with young families are on the hunt for to.

This blog is for Unicef.

Thanks for reading.
