A desperate housewife/mother…


Dear Husband,


There are some things better said in a letter. You mean the world to me but most of the time you annoy the hell out of me!


For the past 4 weeks (specially) you have been getting up late on Monday mornings and making so much noise while getting ready! This is usually because you have been waking up late, crashing into one thing or another in your haste get out of the door so you don’t miss your 7.30am train. Also another thing why do you leave it up until Monday morning the iron your work shirts??? YOU HAVE HAD A WHOLE WEEKEND!!!


I am so tired of you crashing around trying to get things done and rushing out of the door that you slam it shut so the pictures on the wall in the hallway crash on the floor, one time the shoe rack fell over you don’t see these but I am left to pick up the pieces, Hriday wakes up an hour earlier and is grumpy which is not a great start to the week. So in a desperate attempt to have a more peaceful Monday I will hid the iron. That’s right you read that correctly. On Sunday night after you have gone to sleep the iron will disappear- this should A) prompt you to be more organised, B) Iron your clothes on time, C) listen to me and D) teach you not mess with me.


So to summarise IRON YOUR CLOTHES AT THE WEEKEND!! and don’t even bother to ask to me on Monday where the iron is.

Yours ever so lovingly,

Some of you reading maybe wondering why we don’t use the local laundry store but my motto is why pay for it when you can do it for free or at minimal cost! Also sometimes I like to see my husband puzzle over which setting to use. I am easily entertained and generally at the cost of my husband. 🙂

    • Nisha- luckily for him the Monday just gone was a national holiday for him so he had an extra day to organise himself, which after reading my email he ironed his shirts on Monday. His little win and comment? ‘Suck it Sejal-Monday is a bank holiday!’ He is ever so charming!

    • Hi Ameena- Of course you relate doesn’t every slightly frustrated wife do, whose husband’s are often absent minded at important things and but suddenly notice a bad hair day or just when we are cranky??
