    At a salary level of c£40k you can afford to work part time !
    Try that on NLW of £7.50 per hour (a 102 hour week to earn £40k pa before you do the maths yourself)

    I would eat cake too, if I could afford it. (with apologies to Marie Antoinette, or Rousseau, or whoever it's attributed to these days)
