Timetable for working from home parents or anyone else

Updated: Apr 8, 2021

I am fortunate enough to have worked from home for the last 15 years so my boys have been very used to having to deal with mommy being up in her office during school holidays and because of this, they have learned how to become independent young men, although that doesn't mean they are angels. I still have to remind them to pick their crap up off the floor, stop leaving their underpants in their trousers and to wash their hands when they pee (boys will be boys). But on the whole they are pretty good.

So I work (or I did before I was furloughed) 10am-3pm every day except Thursdays as I always take my mother-in-law shopping Thursdays. That's 20 hours per week for anyone teaching maths...

Now that I am homeschooling I've had to change my hours to suit my new role so instead I will work 8am-12pm and then 3:30pm-5pm on Monday's, Wednesdays and Fridays. I did have a different plan for Tuesdays but I think my hours for that day are likely to be dropped. On Monday's, Wednesday's and Friday's we will have a pretty set timetable, Tuesdays will be a free day and Thursdays will be Spanish in the morning followed by shopping and then a trip to the library, park or whatever. Check my detailed breakdown of the timetable below or follow me on YouTube if you can't be bothered to hear me warbl
