Hi,

I recently found this website, Whilst i was searching MSE!

A little about me,

I recently started a job, Which in turn is driving me insane! Its a living hell, Which i really don't need right now, As i also have depression & currently at counselling. I'm also a local Avon rep for my area - As well as being a unpaid carer for 2 family members.

I feel work is making my depression is worse, I'm currently on 1 day & 1 late a week, Totaling 10 hours, However, They now want to cut me down to just 4 or 5. So i'm thinking of finding something new, Mainly from home, If i can!!.

Does anyone, Really make a wage working from home? Can it be done??

That's me!
Princessx87!!!

Welcome aboard Princess,

No tips for money making I'm afraid, I'm 100% housewife, not money maker. Good to have you here Smile

Hi all. My names Lydia and I'm a stay at home mum with 2 young boys. Very interested to see how you all manage your time as I don't have much of a routine and would love to do lots of crafts and baking but never seem to get the time. Computer doesn't help with that also Laughing
Lovely to meet you all.xx

Hi
I'm Ruth, a SAHM in my 30s. Live in Essex, but originally from the North East.
My daughter is 3and a half.
I am a qualified nurse, so still keep my hand in by doing the odd shift, but mostly at home due OH's insane working hours!
Would really love to have another child, which we are working on! Lol!
Love music, books & baking/cooking (although I'm definitely no expert!)

My name is Jane and my husband has recently retired. We are managing on a very, very tight budget now, since I have always been home based and don't have an outside income and hubby's pensions is just enough for the two of us to live on, if we live very frugally. I have done part-time work on and off over the years, but basically we always felt that family life was a lot easier if one person devoted themselves to being at home. It's wonderful to find that there are women like me. I had begun to think that everyone else had well-paid jobs, three foreign holidays a year and drove fancy new cars! I have felt very alone at times. We are lucky enough to have a little smallholding and we grow all our own veg, renewable trees to cut for our woodburner, chickens, geese etc. We are very happy and peaceful but we just can't take part in the lifestyle of some of our contemporaries who enjoy huge disposable incomes in retirement. We make do and mend, cook from scratch, never waste a thing and buy clothes and furniture from jumble sales and second hand shops. We don't have any debts because we never get what we can't afford. One of my biggest inspirations has been reading
http://down---to---earth.blogspot.com/
written by an australian woman who seems to speak my language. Has anyone else discovered her?

Welcome Ruth, Jane and Karen!

Karen, Ikwym about moving to a new place and not knowing anyone. We moved last year and I still don't know anyone. It's weird to not know anyone at all, as I did know some people where we used to live. But I've lisved away from most of my friends for years so I guess I'm used to it.

Good to have you here.

Hi all,
Found my way here via MSE.

I am kind of an homemaker as for the past 3 years I have worked from home as a bookkeeper, but only on a part time basis. This gives me plenty of time for cooking, cleaning etc. I absolutely love being at home and never want to go out to work again!! Very Happy My husband likes me at home too-says I am a much happier person.

I can do what I want, when I want and as long as my clients receive their work back when its due, that's all that matters.

I have 2 grown up children ( 1 still lives at home) and 2 beautiful grandsons who I get to spend lots of time with.

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Post  MumofMany on Thu Jan 26, 2012 8:48 pm

Hello, my name is Sarah-Jean. I'm 29 years old and have been married to my Hubby for 11 years. Together we have 7 children ranging in age from 10 down to 2 (next week!).

I am a full time homemaker (and have been since I met my Husband at the age of 17) and I must admit I love it. I left the house over a year ago to run my own business full time, but about a week before Christmas it went into liquidation. Something that most people would find very upsetting (indeed I did) but actually I am grateful that it did in the end as it drained my family of every penny we had, we lost one house and nearly lost the house we live in, but worst of all my children and my marriage suffered with me working such long and stressful hours.

Anyway, I found you on Google whilst searching for homemakers forums and am so glad to have found a like-minded community.

I look forward to getting to know you all better and being a fully participating member of your forums!

Kind regards,

Sarah-Jean

Hello

I've found my way here from MSE. I'm a 43 SAHM though DD is 22 and studying law at the local university (so still at home) I am married, DH is also at home having been made redundant at the end of December. I am also a carer for my mum who has very recently (under 3 weeks go) had MAJOR abdominal surgery for uterine sarcoma (a rare cancer) so we can often be found popping up to the Royal Marsden Hospital - Chelsea branch. We have 7 rescued cats randing in age from 20 (Boo is SO old!) all the way down to 10 months.

I used to work but really hope to never have to do that again - unless I can write a best selling book or something likt that, Laughing
