I spoke to Sonia about this the other day and said I felt the need to blog about it as I know we all feel the same and solidarity is a powerful thing but then I feel like such a loser whinging away when quite frankly I have a good life..
Anywho.. here I am. It feels like a weekly scenario and that is because it is..
I work and my husband works
I work from home and he gets on a bus at 7am to return at 7pm (earliest)..
The thing is because he has bosses and I don't I get the bum end of the deal on ALL chores.. take the other day.
We are putting in a pool in our back garden ( I told you life was good - we have been saving for a few years but either way - we are getting a pool!!). Back to the point..
He leaves at 7 and says 'I am busy all day so can you get the bank cheques for the trades due tomorrow and I will see you after I have been out for a work dinner at about 8.30/9'.
'Oh ok.. I had planned to go to the gym today for an hour but I will cancel that and do the bank' Hmmfph..
