Me time!

OK enough screaming. Here's a funny story I was reminded of by the fact that I had some 'me time' today. (I went to the hairdressers for highlights - three hours of adult conversation and pampering - bliss!)

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin.......

My friend, Ella, at choir is married with three delightful, if boisterous, children and works part-time as a university lecturer. A few months back she realised that her husband was arriving home from work, making a coffee and then hiding in the study for half an hour each day while she fed the children. When she asked what was going he said he needed a little 'me-time' after work.

(You know what's coming don't you?)

She exploded and yelled,

"You are a father. The only 'me-time' you get is driving to and from work. If you want more me-time, DRIVE SLOWER!!"

Ha! I offer to keep Ellie up so that Richard can see her when he gets home. He always says, 'no that's fine. She'll be tired.'

Wonder what he really means?
