    I'm also at home with my 2 boys (6 and 2). I went straight back to work after my first was born but reluctantly gave up my job after No.2 due to finding (and paying for) nursery's and childminders etc.

    When I was working in the real world I had the most fantastic job and I really miss it. Right in amongst every art and craft material you can think of. :wink:

        I hope it happens for you Bea.

        I work 8.30(or when I can drag myself in coz nobodys here coz I have to open up)to 5.30(sometimes I can leave at 5).

        I sit on my bum all day, hence the 2 stone weight gain, answering phones that hardly ever ring.As i type Im holding a phone to my ear to a supplier, Ive been holding for about 6 minutes.

        I hate my job

        The only good thing is that the bosses dont mind me doing my hooby.If it wasnt for this job I wouldnt know about scrapbooking as I saw it all online, I can look for craft shops online and I can order lots of lovely things, and I can chat to people on forums like this.

        I yearn for a job I enjoy that pays a good wage, I am still looking.

        Im finally off the phone after about 12 minutes, my arm hurts.

          I am one of those truly lucky people who don't think they "work" coz they are having so much fun!!!
          I have two online bead stores that keep me busy from 9am til midnight.

          In the quieter moments I create jewellery that I sell on a party plan basis and also at a local producers market.
          I also teach beading workshops and do childens beading parties.
          So the short answer is
          I HAVE FUN!!
          full time mum and very very part time crafter.

                  I forgot to say I work in a computer maintenance company.
                  We have no heating(until the afternoon) and the floor are bare floor boards.
                  Im surrounded by computer parts and people who only really talk about computers or computer related things and its yucky and boring.And they expect me to know what they are on about when they say 'has the tape drive backed up'!!!
