My interview that I had yesterday was successful. They are going to offer me the job, pending a reference check. Now I have to choose.
Do I take an interesting role, with scope for advancement and a certain degree of autonomy; with all the benefits of a permanent position? That means a 48 hour working week, minimum; when you add in my other job I will have no days off at all.
I’ve never shirked hard work before and I regard it as a challenge. In the hereandnow, however, my father is dying, my husband may well do the same and family members need support. I can’t do it on fifty hour weeks.
Where do I go from here? Who do I sacrifice when I make the decision? I don’t want it t b me.
