      I agree we have to pull a sickie if one of the family is ill, i've done it myself, where i work we get paid out any unused sickies if theres a retrenchment, i have 600+ plus hours....

It's the same over the school holidays as well when OSHC is closed, we HAVE to take leave as there's no alternative. I'm sorry if that gets up people's noses, I'm not trying to blag more time off than anyone else, we just don't have the choice.
      Very good point! It is very difficult to cope during the Xmas holidays when you have to cover for the absence of childcare and have no extended family to turn to.
      I have had to give up my career when I came here because of the limitations we had looking after the children.
