@Audrey, thank you.
@Goldhawk, @livegreen, why the vitriol?

You post enough on here and mumsnet to suggest that at the most you only work part time
Perhaps you should explore some other interests
Figment of my imagination? Guessing whether/how much I work? Recommending I explore other interests? Really?
I don’t care much about total strangers who, for reasons known to them only, feel compelled to formulate and share harsh judgments on people they don’t know the first thing about.
I would, however, like to invite the whole forum to think of what would have happened had it been a man saying these things to a woman.
If a man had said something like: “Why are you asking so many questions? Does this child of yours even exist? You must either be a stay-at-home-mum or work part time, maybe you should explore other interests”.
