Both my parents worked. My mum would leave me a note telling me what was prepared for our dinner and I cooked from the age of 14. I did washing up from the age of 10. All three of us could do all household jobs by school leaving age. We all did jobs for my nan who was severely arthritic. We never looked upon it as a boring chore, we were helping out, and in our way we still do this.
