i get 6 months made of half pay and statutory mat pay, then could have 6 months with no pay but i know from 2007 it will be increased to 9 months pay 3 months no pay and that eventually it will be raised to 12 months with pay. i am using my holiday entitlement to work part time hours on my return in september so not working my normal hours till december, then have some holiday left to have christmas off and time in february off and maybe the end of march too. yay.
six weeks to go
three weeks of these 6 is my holiday left from this last year but i didn't want to be killing myself at the end besides my job is highly stressful and don't want to develop high bp.
