    I am probably starting up 1 feb with 40 hrs. Not ideal as I want to work but part time would be better. In my case it's all or nothing though.

    I'm going back in april and will be doing full time, 37.5hrs, I don't get a choice unless I take a demotion of 2 grades below me, after working my ass off to get where I am i'm not gonna change it!! Hubby has changed his hours so we cover all the childcare between us except for 2 mornings.

    I was doing just the 25hrs p/w but ive now been asked to do an extra 3.5hrs but i wasnt sure if it was too much, the extra money would come in handy for the summer holiday and its just a little 9-12 block, but im torn as it means i have no day off during the week now....

    LO doesnt really get up til 11 anyway in the mornings so its not a case of missin much with him, but stil....its difficult!!

    I went back a couple weeks ago, part-time. I'm a supply teacher so the hours vary, but I have a train to catch by 7am, at the school by 8:15 and then school goes until anywhere from 3-4pm, back on the train and hopefully home by 5 or so. DH picks up DS from MIL/FIL (for now) and is home around 6pm.

    All being well 18.5 hrs over 4 days Mon to Thursday. Bea will go to nursery Mon pm, tues pm, all day weds and Thursday pm at a cost of 100 a week which will mean I only net about 80 a week but it is about more than the money and in 15 mths she can go to preschool for half the cost. My career wont wait for me and i want my girl to experience nursery. She won't go til she is one, at which point I do feel it is important.x

    I went back to work when LO was 9 months. She is nearly one now. I started back on 2 days a week using up my holidays and then just before christmas I went back to 3 days :( I have just last week upped my days to 4 days a week due to my OH being put on reduced hours so I guess I do around 32 hours a week! Not ideal but not a lot I can do!!

    LO goes to nursery Monday and Tuesday and with my mum on Thursday and half day Friday.

    Yikes. Reading this is scary!! Am I the only one working full time?? V nervous about it now. I have been getting LO "used" to daycare and sending her part time for January (3-5 hrs per day) and she's doing fine. Full time starts 1 February. Is it too much for her?)
