    How much time do you all have to do your own thing with your own mates? How much time do you spend doing things with just your partner? and how much time do you spend with family activities?

    For us it is crucial to maintain a balance of all of these for a healthy relationship and great for the family. I have time with my friends, my wife has time with her friends (which gives us individual time with the children) we have time together away from the children and of course we have dedicated time as a family.

    How do you split your spare time?

    Very little to be honest. I work shifts. She is with the kids all day and doesn’t drive or really like socialising. So when I finish I am heading straight home to try and sort the day out clean up and possibly put kids to bed (depending on the shift) recently she has been so exhausted as I come in she has been falling asleep sometimes for 14 or more hours due to some medication she is on. I try and get out when I can but it is a real balancing act as most of my mates are still childless and the ones that do are in a similar boat to me or have clubs and such like to deal with.

    As much as you can get to feed your soul so that you can be a good partner and dad.

    Less than i would like to, i regularly run home from work when I’ve finished a late shift so i get a bit of me time, and have been making more time to cycle recently, but thats mostly training for a long bike ride I’ve got coming up later this year. As for spending time with friends i don’t, I’d rather spend time with my family as all my old friends could never commit to making plans so i don’t bother now.
