But I learned to accept my fate and I still have a lot more opportunities than my parents had.
As you know, you have to make a bit of time for yourself but then allow your other half to have equal freedom.
Also it's never easy with a young kid in the house and Jasper seems to be doing right by devoting his time to his young kid.
It can be a bit boring I s'pose but I get a 12 pack of Peroni each Thursday night after work for £12 and it lasts a week.
Another good idea is to apply for flexible working - I do 4 x 9.5 hours days to reduce the commute and to make more time for DIY, getting nagged at etc.
