I read this and found it so sad. Why does this man portray himself as a hero for expecting his clearly very talented wife to do the housekeeping so exclusively that he struggles in this (rather pseudo ha ha manner) to cope with it? Does he expect us to find it amusing? When woman in the same position wouldn't think twice about it? It's really not very funny to think that someone is so inept (and lazy) that they've never bothered to put a wash on so they can't work the machine. The real test of honouring his wife's death is his ability to come to terms with it, and move on. I sincerely hope he has. I sometimes wonder if very privileged people like this man feel life owes them a living. I detect a distinct 'why me' tone to his book - wake up and smell the roses, tragedy can strike any time, any day. And it did to you and your family. So don't spend the rest of your life feeling aggrieved. Live up to her and make each day count. You are living for both of you now.
