The best example of work life balance I've seen was when I was working in Further Education. A colleague of mine worked part-time as a lecturer whilst his partner worked part-time in a primary school. I believe she was the deputy head. They shared parental responsibilities, led active lives and had their own small-holding.

One of my friends and her banner made it to the Guardian - a picture of a man shooting himself in the foot, a foot with a Union Flag sock.
