Hi all, I am looking for a little advice from any of you that have taken a career break. Did it work out, was it a struggle, were you happy??
I have been working since I was 16 years of age. I now work part time night work and my husband has a successful business of his own. During the pandemic I have been off work due to health reasons and it has shown me a different side to life. I'm getting into bed at normal hours, getting out of it at normal hours. I'm not grumpy with our 3 girls etc etc. Recently my husband has suggested to me to look at taking a career break. He said he would pay me a small wage and my stamp, for doing the likes of paper work, invoices etc. This would allow him to not be confined to time to be coming home for me to go to work in the evenings as he takes over minding our girls. Needless to say its something I never thought of but now it has been mentioned I am wondering would it work. Have any of you been in this situation, I would really appreciate feedback. I know I'm so lucky to have a job etc etc given the ways things are at the moment, but would just like to see how people felt if you have done this.
