P: Wow! Kathryn! Your house is so tidy! Have u just cleaned it?

K: No, D cleaned it before he went to work.

P: And did he do all the washing up as well?

K: Yes, He got up really early today.

P: So who took the children to school and nursery then?

K: I did, on my way to work.

P: Do you always take them?

K: No, usually D does, but I didn’t want to interrupt his cleaning!

P: So, did you get the children dressed as well?

K: Yes, I did today.

P: So what time did you get up this morning?

K: Well I actually had a lie in! I got up at half past six today. But D got up at 5.30.

P: 5.30? Really? So what time do you two go to bed?

K: Mmm I’m always in bed before 9 o’clock on weekdays now.

P: And I know you eat together in the evenings. Who usually cooks dinner?

K: Sometimes it’s me, but D’s a much better cook than me, and he loves cooking, so he cooks more often than me.

P: And who’s picking the children up today?

K: D. So I’ve got time for another coffee if you’d like one…
