Dance with the Wolves

Location: St Annes, Lancashire, United Kingdom

I'm happy. I'm amused by life. I know who I am and why I'm here. I have a masters degree and very little money.

Is it me?

Haven’t posted for a while because I’ve been busy working. Bonus in shares this time (its worth twice the cash!), pay rise back dated to April and thank you letters from customers. All wonderful stuff but I am knackered. Only 2.5 weeks until my hols and I can’t wait. I haven’t had time to post a comment or think of anything interesting to write about.

I’ve been a little unavailable to the family lately but they haven’t mentioned it or moaned about it although I have noticed a change in my wife. She is beginning to treat me in the same manner that her best friend treats her husband. He’s a nice guy, he earns loads of money and is attentive to his wife and kids and I don’t understand the problem that she has with him. In company she calls him useless and an idiot and generally runs him down. She disagrees with him over trivial matters (perhaps this is a method of generating sexual tension – best to draw a discrete veil over that!).

Now I should point out that my wife doesn’t treat me this shabbily but she does question my judgement and decisions in public. Perhaps that’s how this behaviour begins. It seems to me that as she has bonded with her friend that their attitude to life in general and their husbands in particular have synchronised somewhat. Its almost as if I’ve got to be a complete tit because her friends husband is. This observation may a load of dingo’s kidneys; as I say I have been a little unavailable recently (and perhaps I am a complete tit). Perhaps it’s the menopause “she’s at a funny age y’know”. I better make sure that she takes her tablets and that I take mine too!
