Sorry ladies this is just a bit of a rant my DH changed job as he used to do 7 to 7 mon to fri and some sat mornings. He now works for RAC and although home some day time hours also works lots of weekends. He has worked last 3 and this next one too. He has just rang me to say stuck on M25 with a car wont be home till prob 9 ish. he lefy at 7.30 am to go on 8am shift. Im fed up anyway but this just makes it worse. The kids miss their Dad hes good when at home but always tired. Me fed up!!!! Anyone else a work widow!! Hope u all ok. pupx

I am kind of in the same boat, in that hubby is in the RAF and is constantly away on courses, guard etc. Currently away for 2 weeks, and 4 days in I am already miserable!

My husband is a consultant and away from home Monday to Friday which is really hard. He's looking for a job where he can be at home more, when the baby is born but it's not looking good. I guess we'll just have to deal with it when it happens!
