Wow what other business apart from being self employed can give you 16 weeks off, and still be paid with no hassle!!
My husband has been ill (for the second year running - last year I took 10 weeks off)
I've been there for him, visiting in hospital plus the subsequent appointments. Plus my father in law was also ill at the same time, so its been a difficult few months.
I chose to be self employed so I could always be around for the boys and my family, and this is certainly the life I want.
