    DH works for himself and it can vary depending on how busy he is.

    Generally though he leaves at 6:30am so he's in the office by 7ish and comes home as close to 5 as he can. If he is busy he will start work again at home around 7:30. He tries v hard to always come home, even if he has to keep working.

    It's rare he doesn't work at least a few hours on the weekend as well.

    Whenever he can though he escapes early - he figures he should make the most of it when he can to make up for the days when he works through until 2-3am.

    It varies, depending on workload & such but generally he works 10-13 hours a day with 1hr to 30hr travel time depending on traffic.

    DH leaves home around 6.40am (10 minute trip to work) then is usually home by 7 sometimes 7.30 Monday to Friday.

    This is about to change to 7 on 7 off but he will likely work 2/3 of those days during the 7 off.

    They are loooooong days on your own with 2 kids but the money is good so I can't complain too much!

    DF works shifts so really his hours are any time of day or night, and any day of the week.
    The past few weeks he has predominantly been working 5am - 3pm or 5am - 5pm. Leaving home at 4am and getting home at 4pm or 6pm.
    Now he is going to night shifts again so 3pm-1am or 3pm-3am or 5pm-5am, leaving an hour before shift starts and arriving home an hour after shift ends.
