The pattern is :
He picks up on Tuesday from after school club at 4.30pm and has them for tea and swimming then drops them to me at 7.30pm. Last week he couldn't manage this as he was away with work
He is due to have them 50:50 during half term. Wednesday morning and then Thursday and Friday. He couldn't have them Wednesday morning nor pick them up from a club Friday afternoon so I worked from home on Wednesday which is not unusual. I was supposed to go into London on Friday but worked from home instead so I could pick the girls up.
During the summer holidays he couldn't cover 2 of his days so my parents had the girls and I had to take time out to drive them there and pick them up (about 1.5 hrs each way).
He currently has them 6 nights a month (3 nights a fortnight) and in addition 1 full week holiday in the summer.
8 and 10 - two girls
The financial order was agreed in mediation in January 2014 based on Johns P60D and my wage from tax year 12/13 and went through court in June and was agreed end of June/beginning of July 2014. We are still working to these amounts - they were not updated for tax year 13/14 even though that was agreed in mediation - John didn't change anything.
I earn £70k full time but only work 0.75 FTE. If I was to get a job more locally I would need to work full time and the salary would be nearer £50k.
He earns £77k plus car allowance of £6.2k plus on target bonus which last time took his salary up to £104k. I forgot to mention that I also get a bonus on my performance of 20% - of the 0.75 FTE salary.
