Yep another one and, to be honest, my story is not much different to anyone else’s. I’m a wife and mother to three beautiful boys. Fairly normal with the exception that my husband is only in our lives every second month, we are a FIFO family or in lam ens terms fly in fly out. We have worked this way for six years (we do four weeks on four weeks off) and its great when its great and crazy when its crazy. I love the life it gives
We have worked this way for 6 years (we do four weeks on four weeks off) and its great when its great and crazy when its crazy. I love the life it gives us but you are either made for it or not and that goes for your husband too. It will either tear you apart or bring you closer together, for me its been the latter and I’m so grateful I don’t say I’m lucky because I don’t believe in luck its hard work that’s all and I have been on that edge and its hard to crawl back from.
I can’t tell you now that this blog doesn’t guarantee to be pretty or paint a picture that this lifestyle is anything but hard work; nothing that’s worth anything is easy, and so in reality this blog is for all the other FIFO wives and mothers who sometimes question themselves and what they are doing..a blog of surviving living relishing every moment by someone who’s been there and doing that.
