    please, thanks the OP is asking about work options, not for comments re her child and use of childcare.
    Cheers

    Thanks so far again...

    Yeah don't really know why I have to justify myself to anyone I am just asking about whether or not I should go back to work and weighing up the pros and cons.

    sorry i have to be rude. and apologies in advance. but go to work if you are using childcare. i know it sounds blunt, but do you rally need 2 full days to catch up with friends etc.. i work 2days and my son goes to childcare, the other days if we catch up with friends, he comes with me.. 7.30-6.00 is a long day in childcare when mums out socialising.. (sorry for being so rude )

    I think given all the things going on in your life that getting a job two days per week would be an excellent idea. You already have CC worked out, you need extra $$$ for rent etc and it will put a routine onto your life. You will meet other people from different walks of life and it will expand your experiences as well as give you extra $$

    It's ok, the reason I got him into daycare long hours is because I KNEW I wanted to work and/or study eventually and it's hard to get places here. Yeah they are long days but I don't think it's any different to when he's home with me and it's two days out of the week, not the whole week.

    Definitely work! I have lived off the SPP for 3 years before meeting my now DP, and i dont know how anyone affords to live on it without working!

    Re: finding a job, what sort of jobs are you looking for? My advice is to do up your resume and cover letter, print off a heap of copies, get dressed in black slacks and a nice shirt, and personally drive around to anywhere you could possibly work and apply in person! This is how I got the majority of my jobs... So many people apply through seek, careerone, etc... Your resume gets lost in the crowd! Also, many places do not even advertise they are looking for staff, eg restuarants, cafes, retail, etc, and if you are well presented and proactive employers like that!

    Good luck

    Good luck with the job hunting.
    I have just started doing some very casual (on call type) work packing boxes/DVDs etc into cases for a printing company perhaps something like that might suit until you decide what direction to take career wise.
