    Anna.. Sorry to hear you are having regrets on the job. It's difficult & would be more so if financially it's not as good as first thought.

    I hope the birthdays both go ok. Try & relax and just enjoy as much as you can.

    Anna it must be so disappointing especially when your Dh is missing out on the special days for what seems like no reward. We always say that "every decision is the right decision at the time you are making it". Is he in a position to move up the ladder? Think about what you are both learning from this experience. I know that I have discovered how strong I am to go through weeks without dh. He has/is missing every one of our birthdays this year. It is cr@p! But we schedule the birthdays on another day. It isn't the same but at least we still get our day together. Hope you're ok xoxo

    So I've been avoiding this for a while, as I'm still trying to ignore the fact dp works away. We did Jan-June away, 6weeks back, and now he has been away for another 3 weeks and won't be home until... Probably Christmas.

    So I have a question for all you ladies with FIFO partners in Perth... can anyone get my partner a job!!! He is in military ATM, but wants out so he can spend more time with the kids. TIA

    Hi!

    I thought I'd finally say hi as i've been reading along quietly. DH is in NT atm almost finished 16weeks straight. I'm exhausted! We have 4 kids, DS1(14) DS2 (10) DD(8) and DS3(4mths) Dh comes home this friday for 2 days before starting a new job in civil works in the mines in QLD but has training/inductions in Brisbane for a few weeks first so he will be 5/2 untill thats completed. Yay weekends at home for a while!
    I have a quick ? Does anyone else find their house runs smoother with hubby away then its caos when they are home?

    Hi Ruby & welcome... Our house is organized, clean and everything runs extremely smooth when DH is away. When he is home... Chaos at it's best. I don't know why it is that happens. J know when he is away, I clean in the night time after kids have gone to bed.. When he is home I don't do this as I get angry that he doesn't help meningitis the night, so i sit & watch tv with him instead. Same thing goes for the weekend.. I get mad that I have to clean & tidy up by myself while he forgets that it's our house and children and sits on his bottom.

    There is a rant and reply in one.. Hehe

    Same here!
    So much more cooking, cleaning, washing... and I expect to not have to do it all myself so I get grumpy at him.

    Sounds awful but lately I have been looking forward to him leaving, he has been SO GROUCHY

    I am definitely more organised when dh is away. I think it is because there is pressure (from myself) to cope. When he walks through the door I go into holiday mode. He left yesterday morning and within hours the house was back together.

    When he is home we have about 5 cuppas a day... when he is gone I don't drink them.

    What else do you do differently when dh is away?
