    Usually leaves between 6:30 and 7am and walks in to work. He aims to leave by 5pm so he gets time with us at home at night.

    More often than not he works from home at night but it's nice to have him here with me after DD has gone to bed.

    There are times when he isn't home until very late - has been 2am on occasion - but he's very conscious of balancing those times with early finishes whenever he can. We try as much as possible for him to finish at lunch time on a Thursday or Friday when DD is at pre school so we can have a lunch date.

    My hubby is in the navy so 😱 at your sook 😄

    But I must admit to sooking when DH is working ashore and doing very long hours.

    DH leaves at 2.30pm & gets home at midnight.

    AND I HATE IT!!

    I hate afternoon shift with a passion. I'd much rather 9-5 hours & man I hope they start again soon.

    I'm pretty lucky we live only 5 min drive from the office, he usually leaves home at 8.45am and is home by 6.30-7 for dinner unless he has late appointments , Saturday's he is usually home by 5 and Sunday's he might get the odd appointment every couple of weeks and is only gone for an hour or two

    Dh leaves home at 4:30am and get home about 5:10pm.

    I get 5 others ready for school and preschool then I run a graphic design business and the house and look after master 1 until he gets home then I work a bit more while he cooks dinner does some housework and baths kids.

    Heheh No way! I get my DH home FULL-TIME for 6 days in a row, every fortnight. It makes up for the time he isn't here. I would HATE to have to do 6.30am-5pm every single day... I always say that to him when he talks about not doing FIFO...

    My dh is home full time 9 days out of 21 days. It's great!
    I work 4 days a week 8am til 4pm. I'm in a good routine, it works just fine.
