Wife number 2


Mrs C is quite civilised about the whole arrangement. Though she does occasionally tease me about the time I spend with “THE Wife” (her emphasis not mine). I think isn’t entirely fair. Mrs C prefers to have me out of the kitchen. What am I to do but to try and make use of the time? Things have been busy lately at work so I have no other time accept before dinner.

In terms of priorities Mrs C outranks “The Wife” aka wife #2 by a wide margin. I think Mrs C knows that but she uses the whole situation to unleash her devastating sense of humour. Part Saturday Night Live, part Monty Python and a dash of Jim Carry. All delivered with the effect of laser guided shrapnel.

However Mrs C gets a chuckle out of reading “The Wife” which by the way is this blog. Even my horrendous typos doesn’t seem to be an issue. She likes the “human interest” stories like the Old Girls Association post. The Google Earth stuff she told me is not something she “cares for”.

She has one topic she’s been telling me to write about but it is too personal for me to even think about near a key board. I have also detected a slight impatience over the fact that I’ve sworn her to secrecy about discussing my blogging with her trillion friends.

Which brings me to the original intent of this post: how does your spousal unit/significant other/offspring unit(s) regard your blogging?

The comment box awaits your confessions.

  1. My ex and kids know nothing about my blog nor of my blogging activities. The formerly thick black lines are becoming more grey and blurred as my daughters have now met several Sri Lankan bloggers, including a certain Mr Jones and Darwin.

  2. Kids and Hubby have this “let’s humour poor mum/wife” attitude! And are nonchalantly happy that I may even be a wee bit ” known” as a blogger,er…just maybe,that is! It was my eldest son that introduced me to my first one, when I quit work many years ago,set it up, showed me how to do stuff and they probably secretly read it,but on and off, as the novelty of mum being a blogger has now worn off!Hubby doesn’t read it,although he loves it when I say I wrote about him.(Funnily he can’t be bothered abt privacy…unlike myself!)He’d love to have his pix splashed abt and stuff, but….I just stop it right there!:)

    OOPS…sorry the comment is tooo long!

  4. My SO regularly reads my blog and even edits it from time to time. Of course, I never talk about our personal life on it, so he never feels threatened or embarrassed (which probably has a lot to do with his sunny attitude towards it).

  5. i have to email her a link every time i post an article and even then only when i ask her what she thought does she give me some feedback. On the other hand i’ve by far tried to move my blog from to focus more on my photography and the occasional though here and there. The camera has taken so much of my time that i dont have time to really write anymore. not that i am complaining…
