I do a lot of odd babysitting and after school jobs and that helps to earn extra cash, I also have a photography business that pulls in up to $300 a week (on good weeks).
It would be nice to have extra time to focus on my photography too.
I think I've pretty much made my decision not to go back to work. It just doesn't seem worth it, I'll be spending too much money to look after other people's kids while someone else looks after mine. As much as I love my job, I think it just makes more sense.
I'm even thinking of leaving work earlier this pregnancy. I have placenta previa with DS and I ended up stuffing my employer around a lot because I would take long periods of time off without notice due to bleeding.
I might talk to centrelink sometime tomorrow about it, see if they can give me the most accurate estimate possible.
Thanks for all your responses guys!
