Now how did I know this was from the DM before even opening it?
Well I've spent the week laying block paving and cutting stones interspersed with ironing.
DH doesn't do housework. In fact he hired someone to do his portion of the housework so I wouldn't complain about this.
But this woman (the author) appears to be totally tonto.
First of all, it has not been the tradition that women do all the cleaning and household chores. The chores have changed. Butlers tend to be male even now. But before we had vacuums etc, both men and women swept.
Our household chores include chopping wood for the log burner, now is that a girly thing or a blokey thing? Surely since time immemorial that would have been a husband job? Not now.
So either I'm being swizzed by my DH or this is complete crap.
"Ladies, I'm sure many of you have full time jobs. The real question is, do you earn as much as your man does? If you're a clerk on £300 a week and he's a pharmacist pulling down £1,500 a week, then sorry love but you'd better have a hot meal on the table when he gets home. Of course, you STILL won't have produced as much for your household as he has, but at least he knows you appreciate him."
