This year I have found myself in a rut. I have been off work since I had my first born 10 years ago. My fourth child has just started prep and found myself a bit lonely. Especially now all my friends are working. I still chat to mums at school but don't have a friendship with them to catch up.
It's hard for me to go back to work cause my DH works long hours and sometimes goes away. I don't have anyone to help if I'm working plus before and after care is a bit expensive.
Ideally I would love to run my own little part time business but it's getting the motivation and the confidence.
After 10 years of no work and freedom the idea of working is daunting.
Any other SAHM in this situation ??

Not quite but was 7 years for me this year with ds starting school next year so that was to be me but surprise pregnancy so home with 3 month old maybe looking at another 4/5 years at home! I've had somewhat of an identity crisis not seeing myself as home maker but so daunted at prospect of working/ finding work. So easy to lose confidence . My current plan is to study and dip back in gently. Is study an option?
