I keep changing my mind about returning to work. Something someone said to me keeps going round my head. What with the childcare costs and everything else, the work has to be rewarding to be worth it. On the other hand, it would be good to be a (relatively) independent person again. It was also suggested I become a childminder as a solution to childcare difficulties. But it’s not for me. Being a parent doesn’t mean I’d be happy looking after other people’s children. It’s hard work, long hours and it would be difficult to separate work from home life.
