hey maxinel
my partner works for 'masterfoods australia new zealand' i asked because i thought your husband may work for them too. i have had to put up with the shift work since i meet him as he worked with them for a year b4 i came to meet him.
its hard at first he would have 'sickies' just so we could spend more time with me because we were so in love (you know food poisoning although he did get it once) but now things have totally changed now i am lucky to see him and i think it really effects charlee cos she knows when dada not home and gets a bit crabby
they are really pushin for the '4 on/4 off' roster to come back it would be so much better because if he wanted to work overtime he would still have a day off
anyway enough blab
do you have msn
we should chat

After reading these replies it sounds like the males are using shift work as an excuse. My partner and I are both shift workers, police people, you can always find time if you want too. I bet you felt alone even before kids came along. It is a good excuse tried on by too many people, "I am tired because I am a shift worker." We have and still always make time for each other and now our family even if our lives are all over the place time wise. Don't accept shift working as an excuse.
