I used to get asked this ALOT when we lived overseas and even these days the new question is ‘are you looking for work’.
I always feel so awkward and squirm slightly inside when I get asked these questions, as I feel I’m somehow not conforming to societies opinion of me, or someone of my age and childless I guess.
My names Heather, I’m 35 nearly 36, have fur-babies not human babies and I am a very happy housewife.
Is this wrong?
Sometimes I feel that I’m being judged soo much because I haven’t got a ‘job’ or bringing up children or changing the world or something LOL.
Why is it not acceptable that I’m happy doing my thing.
Is it wrong that I’m a 35 year old housewife?
I actually feel so absolutely lucky and blessed with my life.
My husband is happy with me not working and says to enjoy it.
So I am, haha.
And why not.
I love looking after the house and garden. Pottering around doing the groceries and getting everything ready for our weekends.
I love being able to spend time working on my blog (which I’m planning on throwing myself into more).
I love hanging out with my furbies and watching them grow.
I love being able to pop round to my mums or friends for a cuppa and a chat mid-week.
If this is all wrong or odd then that’s what I’ll be.
Considering these days everyone’s so ‘you do you’ then why can’t I?!
I keep myself busy and seriously do wonder sometimes where my day goes and I certainly manage to fill it. I remember actually when we first went overseas and I embarked on my ‘new’ housewife lifestyle, I said to my mum ‘I don’t know how I ever fitted work in’ LOL.
I love being a housewife or is it homemaker these days? Whatever the correct pc description is, I enjoy it.
I have been Cabin Crew and flown around the world going on week long trips to the Caribbean, Maldives, America and more. Which was fantastic and such an experience. I’m so pleased I had the opportunity to fly and of course it led to my lifestyle now, as I met Mark whilst I was Cabin Crew. But life changes, you change and life moves on.
I am genuinely happy and feel blessed with my little life and I shouldn’t feel ashamed of it. And you shouldn’t ever feel ashamed of what you are doing with your life either. I truly believe in the whole ‘you do you’. Do what makes you happy no matter how big or small.
Just be happy and smile!
