Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 226
In fact, in the past, the old Han family could already apply for a homestead to build a house and split up the family. After all, Han Qingsong sent money back, so the old lady was not short of money. It’s just due to Old Lady Han’s habitual thinking as a feudal patriarch that caused her to reject the idea of splitting up the family. After splitting up, her sons and daughters-in-law would live on their own. Who would care about an old lady like her by then? If they didn’t separate the family, the whole house would revolve around her then. By then, no one would question her authority and decisions; how majestic would it be for her, would it not?
Many families do not separate their families. One factor was that they were too poor to be able to divide the family whereas another factor was that the elderly were afraid of being lonely and abandoned.
Han Yongfang thought about Han Qingsong’s return from his career change. The relationship between household registration, grain and oil of his accounts were different from others. To be fair, it was a little more complicated.
Han Qingsong’s registration did not return and was left in the county, but his grain and oil claims were delivered to the Commune.
In short, he could get a total of three salaries from the county and the commune, but at the same time, he could also obtain both benefits from both places as well. For example, the general office workers would usually obtain 30 catties per month. However, some cadres that worked in better conditions could obtain about 36 catties.
Nonetheless, Han Qingsong obtained 44 catties of material, which was taken according to the standard of his weight and physical strength These catties refer to edible flour and the like, not unprocessed grains such as wheat and corn that were directly harvested in the countryside.
Even so, the 44 catties contained edible oil. One catty of food tickets contained three taels of oil, which was not the same as the simple grain tickets used by the ordinary workers.
Han Yongfang didn’t accept other cotton tickets on Han Qingsong’s behalf, so he didn’t know, but he guessed that he must have obtained double the amount or higher according to certain specifications.
For example, if one was able to obtain 10 feet worth of cloth annually, he would probably be able to get 15 feet.
If others have two pounds of cotton, he might have three pounds.
With such good conditions in life, his first demand would be building a house for himself.
The two thatched huts that the Brigade lent him were too dilapidated, making it okay to live there only temporarily. If he were to live there for a long time, it would be cold and frosty in winter. Besides, rain would leak through the roof if it rained heavily in summer.
If there was a heavy rainstorm, it would pour water into the house.
There were a lot of people applying for homesteads in the village at the moment. If he were to sign up now, Han Qingsong would probably have to wait until the year after next.
Fortunately, he had already applied.
He thought that although Han Qingsong’s household registration was in the county, it didn’t mean that he could take his whole family to the county.
One reason was that his main job was situated in the Commune, so it was impossible for him to be allocated a house in the county. If he wasn’t allocated a place, it would mean that his work was merely temporary and he wouldn’t have to go to the office every day.
The second reason was that Lin Lan and the children’s household registration would never be moved to the county. Since his job was part-time, unless Han Qingsong took on his job full-time as a regular as the Director of the Public Security Bureau, it wouldn’t be possible for him to be given a home in the county to move into.
