Non-teacher spouse finds plenty for partner to do during school holidays.

“I can’t have you enjoying yourself while I’m at work,” said Mia Shore (27).

With the school holidays approaching, teacher Adam Milton was looking forward to a relaxing two weeks of TV and Xbox until his wife produced a detailed list of odd jobs he has to perform. Given a solid two-weeks worth of chores to handle, Adam now has little time left over to actually enjoy himself – something that non-teacher spouses relish.

“Teachers gets 11 weeks off a year while most of us only get four, so hell yeah I’m gunna make him pay for it. I even say openly to my husband. I say, “I can’t have you enjoying yourself while I’m at work,”” said Mia Shore (27).

Used to this cycle every 10 weeks, teachers everywhere know better than rubbing their holidays in anyone’s face.

“The trick is to never mention holidays unless you’re talking to another teacher. It’s like a secret code or something. You’ve got to be careful what you say in front of the muggles,” said Adam.

“What was that?” asked Mia from the next room.

“Nothing dear,” said Adam sheepishly.

Knowing he was talking about holidays, Adam is now bracing for even more jobs to keep him busy and away from anything that resembles rest and relaxation. Or fun.
