My wife is home from a visit to the states. The first thing she did was water our sadly neglected garden.
I have renewed respect for what she does all day. It was more than I could handle to keep on top of the kitchen, walk the dog and get the kids to and from school. I didn't do any of the laundry, for example, and I ordered pizza instead of doing any food shopping (the supermarket resides in an inner circle of hell, as far as I'm concerned).
