When a couple sits down to talk about money and one of them ends up in tears you know it’s not been a good conversation. This is what happened to us this evening.
Don’t get me wrong – The Man didn’t bombast me or make me feel small and it’s not like we’re about-to-get-thrown-on-the-streets poor. No. The tears came because I’d seen an advert for a Saturday job and we were weighing up whether it would be worth me taking it on as well as being a self-employed stay at home parent. I’m not sure what it would pay, but we calculated at about £10 a hour.
