In another thread, a poster mentioned using childcare for a break and to get things done like shopping and cleaning, and someone asked how she will do those things if working on the childcare days.
Personally I only ever used childcare for the purpose of paid work, so never had a break or childfree shopping until dd was 6 and in school.
How do you get things done if you have no childfree time?
How do you get down time without having your kids in care other than for paid work?
For me, I involved dd in cooking and cleaning, gave her a list at the shop so she could help, and had my down time when she went to bed at night.
Does anyone have any helpful tips for either working mums without care outside work hours, or mums at home without care?
