“Each to their strengths” is a bit of a motto I use within my family. It basically means that we all make different contributions to the household, according to what we are good at. My wife is very good at looking after the money and all the mortgage stuff – and I am happy to let her do it. I do… other things. Like, putting the books away!
This story starts a few months ago, when my wife made a slightly off-the-cuff and tongue-in-cheek comment about my “glazing over” whenever she tried to talk to me about finances, and wondered aloud if it might be down to some form of “number dyslexia”.
