Response 2: A woman’s work is never done!

‘Have you had a good weekend?’ My single childless colleague asked. Without thinking and as per usual I said ‘yes, good thanks.’

Let’s think about it. I left work at 7.30pm on Friday, I was very busy! Home at 8pm, started dinner, my husband and eldest child were away, so dinner for two. I put a load of washing on, emptied the dishwasher, emptied the dryer and filled the ironing basket, fed the dog, rabbit, guinea pigs and fish. Served my daughter her dinner and ate mine at the same time as washing the breakfast pots. At 11pm I fell into bed.

Up at 7.30am to take my daughter to the stables, back home after food shopping at 10.30am. Put more washing on, started the ironing. Emptied washer and re-filled ironing basket, cleaned the windows, dusted, vac’d up. Very similar on Sunday, back to work on Monday, for a rest.
