    Default Back to full time work

    After three months on a three day per week contract, I've taken on an additional two days per week starting today. Boooooo.

    Not doing it for the money but don't want to turn the work down. Bye bye work life balance.

    My commiserations. This work lark is much over-rated, IMHO
    Hard Brexit now!

    I don't mind it three days per week but this is inhuman.

    I was working a 3 day week quite happily. Then another 2 days work came along. What really causes the stress though is that another 2 days work as turned up.

    Still, I manage usually to squeeze it into 4 or 5 days of elapsed time. I don't do it for the money either - as one person's sig had it, I do it for shed loads of money.

    2 days is about right - that's what I'm looking for. Min £1000 per day.

    I'm bricking it over my new role. Already had a sleepless night. Have sold by self for the almighty dollar, but if the shares shoot up over the next four years like my previous company I can literally retire in 4 years. Hope it doesn't kill me though.

    Keep telling myself, four more years.

    Turned up for first day at 9. Finished at 9:45 and sat in a coffee shop before I head home. Should be able to manage two days per week from home between the two contracts.
