Why do people, as in relatives, have to critisise the choices I have made in my work and personal life?
I chose to give up my career to make things easier for my husband and son, and for family life. No stress for picking up from childcare, I am here for them in the evenings and day, I don't ask for anything in return. I enjoy doing what I do (I have my own little cleaning business), I earn very little but it makes for a much less stressful life all round, I am doing a degree so that one day my husband can retire and I can earn the money.
I am furious that the relative should have any right to insinuate that what I do is worthless and that I should contribute more to the household than I do.
A simple comment has totally bashed my confidence in what I am doing with my life. I wish that I could just ignore it and say poo to them!
I am designing a sock, cosy cables in aran weight yarn for lounging around in.
I need to frog back to the start of the heel as its too big.
Thank goodness for knitting and blogs that inspire to distract me from thoughtless people.
I might knit a punchbag.
