Hi all. I'm just after a bit of advice.
DH is considering doing FIFO work. My dad is a long-time FIFOer so you'd think I'd know what it's going to be like but I realised I don't know from the partners perspective, only the childs.
What is it really like? Do you end up getting into a routine to cope? Do your partners manage to relax and properly enjoy family time on their days off? Is it very difficult being a mum on your own for such long stretches of time? What's good and what's bad about it?
We will have 2 DS's 12 months apart soon so I know I'm going to be busy regardless of what DH does. My mum lives around the corner so she'll be able to help if needed (though I like to try and limit it as she can be overbearing!). I don't think DH sees FIFO as a long-term career. Just a bit of a money and experience booster for the next couple of years.
