I heard a report on the radio the other day to do with the UK happiness index. Apparently those who work part time are much happier than those who work full time. From my own experience, this does not surprise me.
I stayed at home with the girls until Bee was 6. I then went back to work part time, working 21 1/2 and then 3 days a week. This allowed me to fit other things in. When Bee was 10 I started working full time again. This has got much harder as time has gone on. There are lots of things I want to do outside work, and it’s become more of a challenge to fit them in.
I certainly was a lot happier working part time – I think it is because you have more control over what you doing.
What have your experiences of working part time been?
Until next time, Tawney x
