He works hard to bring home the bacon while dear wife keeps the dwelling spick-and-span, the 2 children darlings to all. As the younger 12, is more independant, she had hoped to widen her horizon. Very hopeful when she was encouraged to attend a subsidised course on early childhood education, after being a temporary help at a kindergarten. With the certificate, she would be qualified as a kindergarten teacher. A half day job. Home in time to be with children and run the household. An opportunity to earn, learn and be independant. In preparation for the empty nest syndrome. Husband snubbed her. She does not have the time. After such a long hiatus it'll be tough studying again. Besides it's her 1st duty to be at the children's beck and call.
She ventured no further.
