The Turkish Housewife

Why ‘Turkish housewife’ I hear you ask.

Are you a Turkish housewife? Do you know many Turkish housewives?

I have the misfortune of knowing many. From my in-laws to my husbands friends wives, and they are all just brilliant at what they do. They can cook like Michelin star chefs, clean like a 5 star hotel cleaner, and serve their guests like a (errr can’t really think of the best description) Victorian butler?

The consequence of all this for me is that it leaves me feeling comparatively inadequate.

Don’t get me wrong,  I love having a clean house that I can be proud of like the rest of them. I also enjoy cooking too. It’s just that I haven’t quite reached the required standard and I don’t really know if I ever will.

I’m not done yet though, oh no.

If at first you don’t succeed, try try again.
