DEAR DEIDRE: CHRISTMAS Eve saw me working late, then I did all the shopping for our Christmas Day.
My husband was too busy watching the telly. I bought him a present but he never buys one for me and didn’t this year.
Maybe I’m making a fuss over nothing – that seems to be what our two children think. They are 15 and 12 and tell me not to start spoiling the day.
I’m 31 and I’m thinking of leaving them to it and just walking out. It isn’t just Christmas my husband won’t bother about – it’s my birthday as well. If I want a present I buy it myself.
I work long hours but my husband expects me to do all the work in the home.
He’s 41, and I don’t think he’ll change.

DEIDRE SAYS: He won’t change if he doesn’t have to. Christmas is over so make up your mind that next year will be different somehow.
He’s got into lazy bad habits and your children have followed his lead.
That’s not good for them and it’s not good for you. Why reward him by buying him gifts?
He’s not playing fair so stop making life easy for him. My e-leaflet Standing Up For Yourself will help.
