"We rose at seven in the morning and got the cleaning done, and about eleven I left Irene to finish off whatever rooms and went to the kitchen. We lunched at noon precisely; then there was nothing left to do but a few dirty plates."

"Once the morning housework was finished, she (Irene) spent the rest of the day on the sofa in her bedroom, knitting."

The brother (narrator) enjoyed spending his time reading French literature.
