Give a hearty cheer because whilst she's using the internet she's not giving me grief!

I'd ask her how long she's been back!

As Mrs P-K uses my laptop I'd do what I do when she's hogging the laptop.

I mutter darkly in the background.

If that doesn't work I start cutting up her wardrobes full of clothes. whisl

And it that doesn't work I toddle off to the Brewers Arms where I can enjoy the company of countless other blokes who are internet widowers.

It works every time.

Well I'm a wife and spend hours every day on the internet. Why would it be an issue??

The days of women being tied to household duties are well and truly dead!! lmao

Unless the PC is in the kitchen, I'd just shorten her chain

I would see what entertains her so much and maybe try to share some of that time with her. If it starts to become something that will take taime away from our relationship then I would have to have a serious talk about it. We all need our own time alone but we can't replace our one on one contact with our virtual life. Another issue is if this computer spent time has to be with her work. That would bring other considerations to the table.

Let her know you would like to spend more time with her.  Having some leisure time to surf the net is fine but when it starts to affect a relationship it's time to talk about it.  Try suggesting things you can do together... Like movies, tv, video games, board games, going out to dinner, taking a walk, anything you might enjoy together.  Basically... Just talk to her calmly.
