Life as a Single Wife (Day 1)

Well, as you might have noticed, my husband is frolicking in Singapore. So I'm a single wife now. By single I don't mean that he doesn't have any other wives (honestly, I think I wouldn't mind having another woman in the house, to do all the chores while I'm at work), I mean that I get to experience the life of a single woman for two weeks. The day started extremely promising: I woke up at 6:20 instead of the usual 5:30, prepared for the morning English lessons, taught English for 3 hours, cleaned the house and did the laundry for another 2 hours and a half, then had lunch. Now I'm gloomily thinking that I have to teach one more lesson in the evening. But I have something to say to all the Scrabble players in the world: I'd rather be me :))
Good luck to you all! (Not too much though, because my present from Malaysia depends on what position Adrian ends up on)


  1. It could be worse, I am being deserted for three weeks and do not expect any presents!

    Perhaps you could ask Adrian to help Helen correct this :)

    PS On the upside, presumably less laundry until he returns.

  2. Paul, I hope Adrian reads this and tries to explain to Helen what a loving spouse has to do when away from home.
    Anyway, you were right: less laundry (although he'll come back with a suitcase full of it and laundry is the one thing I insist on doing myself) and less noise about Scrabble :))
