I forgot that I work every third Saturday. When I work those, it jumps from 55 to 64!:eek: I so need a holiday!

17-03-2008, 11:37 AM
I work just over 50 hours per week. Sometimes it's more if they have parent's evening, but I have started to take them home to their house, putting them to bed and then leaving my son to babysit and they bring him home when they are both home. This was their suggestion.

I did do nearly 50 hours over 5 days, as from this week I do 40 hours but over 4 days.
