I'm contracted for 29.5 hours over 4 days.
This week i drove 5 hours to the office (with a chest infection and am on antibiotics),on monday worked, stayed over. Worked 8.30 til 4pm Tuesday and then drove home, got home at 9.30pm. Wednesday I worked 8am til 9.30pm. today 9.15am til 8.50pm and it will be the same tomorrow and next week looks like it will pan out the same way.
I hate it. I hate it. i hate it.

Do you enjoy the job when you're there - in other words, is it just the hours and commute or do you not enjoy the job either.
There are some websites out there that advertise jobs that offer flexible working for women. Have you looked at any of those?

Sorry for not coming back til now - been working and just finished!
I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. We need the money and jobs with less hours/responsibility locally just don't pay enough. Hell even similarish roles locally don't pay the same. The jobs ok except for the stress and pressure which is incredible at the moment.
