I guess I see our quality of life in our weekend, other than hanging or bringing in washing no house work gets done. DD has ballet and swimming other than that the weekend is about the 3 of us spending time together, doing things with friends of me having a few hours off or dh playing golf.
Also, in the beautiful house we will soon live in (building) the o/s holiday we have at least once of not twice a year. We could manage on one wage but not with the luxuries. I also enjoy my job it challenging and finally rewarding. So that's why I do it 😄
