No idea where you would start Vicky sorry. Sounds like the company don't deserve to have you, your obviously working long hours and working every day and if there not willing to give you a week off there not worth it.

My dad started his own business several years ago when he was made redundant again - and was told by company after company that in his mid 50s he was TOO OLD!!! He is now his own boss, supplying First aid training, health and safety training including working at heights, asbestos, scaffolding etc, plus does health and safety consultancy - visiting building sites etc. He had a few friends who helped him get contacts. He has no employees, but when doing a first aid exam, he has about 10 people he calls to cover the exam (me being one of them teehee) I think when he started, he got to a small business loan - government offers this to allow companies to start up. Have a look at government site as they might still do these kind of deals. You also need a good accountant, to help with your books etc. And BE MEGA ORGSANISED keeping alll your receipts. Good luck xx
