Does you work place know you do other work?

If not maybe they have found out and don't like it, so change your days to make it akward for you. Just a thought.

If they don't know, then tell them. If your thinking a long the line of leaving you will not loose anything. It might just save your private cilentel

Hi Laura

Have you a contract at work? If so, check it out - could be they should be giving you more notice than 2 days for a change of shifts, you may be able to fight the change.

How would you be expected to cope if you had childcare to sort out (assuming you don't)?

could you go mobile full time? is this an option financially?

I'd try and have a word with work and see what you can sort out, surely with a bit of notice your clients could change their days.

If your not happy there - then maybe take the leap and go mobile/rent some space - if it doesnt work there's always other jobs !

Have i made that as clear as mud for ya?:hug:

good luck with whatever you decide...oh btw is there a partner involved who you could talk this through with re the mortgage?
