I think it's that kind of thing too, where if I was a carer, or if I was closer to retirement age, I think people would question less, why isn't Charlotte in full time work? Why doesn't she want to? Why wouldn't she want to do full time work? So having to kind of deflect that kind of sometimes unspoken... but you know people are kind of going 'hmm, you know, what's going on here?' [Laughing].
