    I just don't want to speak to anybody. For example, two teenage daughters and husband both asking me if I have had a good day (yes reasonable), bombarding me with questions/statements such as 'there is a cake in the fridge' and so on. Am I the only one who really doesn't want to have to start talking as soon as I walk in the door? Maybe it is a reaction to having to talk all day and then a 45 minute drive home. I don't know.
    How is it with you?

    Drive home singing to Radio 1 in attempt to chill out;
    Rush home with potentially tired and hungry child;
    Arrive home around same time as OH;
    Endeavour to make a meal that will appeal to all (or just make 3 if that's easier!) - to be fair, lot's of "yum" votes recently;
    Listen to OH telling me about his day whilst I cook;
    Offer some interaction and views on his day (new job - teaching adults)
    After dinner, tidy kitchen whilst OH does homework with Miss P before I get her ready for bed & hear reading.
    Various washing/tidying/sorting out jobs........or s*d it and sit down and veg

    Should have also said, put on my pj's at earliest opportunity!!! LOVE chillin' in my pj's :)
  3. My husband doesn't particularly enjoy his job and he's in his own office for most of the day counting beans on a spreadsheet. If I ask how his day's been, I get "Over, thankfully" or "Same old".
