Tsk. I'll be outraged on your behalf!
I get the same thing now too. People keep turning up on my doorstep and saying 'come to town/lunch/visit'. They wouldn't do that if you were in an office somewhere with a boss breathing down your neck!

What a cheek! Leisure time would be nice, wouldn't it?!

And well done on getting your feet in the freelancing door. Once you've got a few contacts, the work will grow.

I had this for 6 six years with the Farmer's dad. Women were supposed to (in his eyes) be at home with the children and work meant washing, cooking and cleaning. Oh and darning the odd pair of socks of course. But my work was always at the computer. Sat on me bottom. Which (in his eyes) defined doing absolutely nothing. He even had the brawl to call me lazy, once. That was the ultimate insult. Oh heck, I better shut up or I'll be here all day.

How annoying! I work part-time and some people do assume that I have an easy life, but the reason I work part-time is to fit everything else in. Easy, it isn't!


Just don't work yourself into a state where you HAVE to be a "Lady of leisure" whether you want it or not.

PS Thank you for the nice comment!

A Modern Mother

Yes, that's what we are you know, ladies of leisure. Spend all the time having coffee, going to lunch, watching the tele. Ha!

Rosie Scribble

Tara, I have exactly the same problem. I'd like a separate office in the garden for that very reason.

Coding Mamma, thanks for the vote of confidence, it's greatly appreciated.

CJ, don't start me off!!!! He's called you lazy? Let me at him...!!!

Not Supermum, no it isn't easy as you say, and annoying but some people's attitudes will never change unfortunately.

RuneE, good point, I could easily work myself into exactly that state.

A Modern Mother, yes and all we do is watch daytime TV and talk about cooking recipes!!!!

Jo Beaufoix

Hmmm, I know the man in question and I wouldn't want to know how he spends his 'leisure' time. Shiver. You are one of the most hard working people I know and you can achieve anything you put your mind to. Hugs.

Almost Mrs Average

He's a naughty naughty boy. Next time, tell him you're a lady of pleasure (LOL) I bet that would raise an eyebrow :-D x

Rachel Pattisson

Aargh! How Annoying! How did you resist strangling him?
