Quality, one of the best I have read for a while ! and very true.
Dinar like Jaspers Mrs has a fine set of top knackers.
I still commute to the same job I've had for 12 years!
I spent 5 years living on my own but now shacked up agian and another kid due in November.
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.
Good read that Stevie. Food for thought.
Good luck, don't be too hard on yourself and put your kid first as it's very rewarding in the long run and they'll appreciate it.
There's a ten year gap between both of mine so I'm rediscovering the joys of having a young 'un all over again.
And I'd have more if they didn't cost so much.
Get out of it marra
Lads need their mates sometimes-a good night of craic away from the missus and kids can cheer you up nee end.Sometimes if its like three days away it gives you something to look forward to and those days pass much more smoothly-i can defo say this will work!
Think about that poor cop that got killed off work yesterday- i bet he would swap with you now-get on the phone and gan out for a beer this weekend
All together now !
I must say this does sound pretty grim.
A 7 month old baby Is a lot of hard work, In a year it'll be much better.
You can't really change your job at the moment, but if you hate it, make plans to eave.
I got a new job recently and it's made a big difference to how I feel about things. It's also given me time to working my own business.
Really? more like he'll be hankering for the days of a year earlier when you could put the bairn down somewhere and know that when you went back to it, it would be still there. Meanwhile his 18 month toddler is stumbling around bumping into things, putting inappropriate things in its mouth,sticking its fingers in plug sockets etc
I sometimes feel like this, I get it in my head that I'm bored and want to do something interesting and meaningful and keep thinking i'm going to do something about it, but I end up doing what I always do b stay in the same job i dont like but just get on with it and realise I don't have it that bad!
