A Fair Division of Labour

I recently commented that my beloved objected to my using the Devil's Computer during what little spare time I have.  I just thought I'd share with you all the very equitable division of labour in our household and comment on how it is with your own domestic arrangements.

Polishing shoes

Paying Bills

Balancing Bank Accounts

Booking holidays

Working as a full time teacher from 7:00 until 18:00 5 days a week


  1. We have a similar division of labour up here but in my case my duties are similar to your beloved's (minus flower arranging, Tai Chi, clothes folding and dusting) and the Old Girl's are similar to yours (minus checking tyre pressures).

  2. TSB (not the arena, the Scotsman), obviously your wife doesn't read your blog. I'd keep that computer at home turned off, if I were you.

  3. Thank you so much TC. That makes me feel so much better.

    Richard[of RBB]thanks for the advice, but my wife doesn't really know how to use this "device of the devil". Just email and MS Word. Just to be safe, I've buried the link to the blogs in a hidden folder. Maybe I should change my name to CunningScottishBastard, or CunningTwistedScottishBastard or even as a last resort, CunningUnmentionableNewzealandTwisted?

  4. What about Cunning Stunt Artist. It should go undetected (except for the dyslexics).

    I do like CunningUnmentionableNewzealandTwisted though. Good acronym potential.
