    Dh has regular hours, he works weekdays 8-5ish + commute, so he's usually gone 11.5 hours every day.

    Occasionally he has to work overnight too, but he can do that from home and starts late the next day.

    Leaves home at 7.30, home by 4.30-5 seven days a week. I wouldn't cope if he worked more.

    5am-4pm mon-fri he's gone by 4:30am and home around 4:30-5pm. Also works every second Saturday, only for 4hours 6am-10am and is on call one weekend a month, some times he gets no call outs sometimes heaps but either way we can't go anywhere on those weekends because he needs to be home incase he gets a call out.

    Gone by 5am, home between 5-6pm, 5 days a week, then Saturdays he does 5am til 12 ish.

    But even when he's home of a night and on Sunday's, he is on the phone 70% of the time for work. This gets hard for the kids as he's not always available to them even though he's physically present. I've grown used to it though (every now and then I do threaten to smash his phone however lol).

    DP leaves home at 7.30am and gets home about 6.30pm but sometimes anywhere up to 8pm.

    Every now and then he works half day Saturday.

    DP is no help in the morning as we all get up at 6am and DP is straight into the exercises, then breakfast, makes his lunch, then shower and hes out the door at 7.30am.

    So I get the kids breakfast and ready for school/kinder. Kids are in bed by the time DP gets home (sometime they may stay up later) so I do all the dinner/night routine for the kids. Then when he gets home I make tea.

    Not bitter...really! Sometimes it just gets to me that I do EVERTHING. But he brings in the $$$ so I cant complain.....much

    8-5, mon-fri but transport is 1.5 hour each way. He'll have 1 fri off each month and will have to travel interstate. It's a new job so we're not sure about OT

    In his current job (casual through agency) 6am to 2:30am but he does a couple hours overtime quite often which would make it 5am till 3:30pm. Five days per week.

    Since we live an hour away from his work he leaves at 4am home at 4:30pm (days he does overtime, which is alot lately)
