Me too. First week I was all like “wow, I can have what I want for dinner, I can watch what I want on TV, I don’t have to drive 50 Mike round trips because he doesn’t like public transport (we have two cars, he is insured on both). My daughter and I ate chocolate for breakfast!!

I’m getting cross with myself now. It’s almost as though I have a version of him in my head. Definitely some kind of rebellion going on here – the house is a tip and I don’t care, and the fridge has food in it that I don’t especially like, but I know he hates. I do need to sort myself out a bit – going to run out of clean pants at this rate. But it is good fun!
