Pompous twerp.

And yes, I am talking about my belovéd (or rather my currently not-so belovéd) husband.

We have a Keep Calm and Carry On chalkboard in the kitchen which we use to note items to go on the next week's shopping list. It's cleaned every Sunday evening. Come Saturday night I was on the receiving end of a polite-but-slightly-impatient lecture about making sure I wrote down the things I had finished as a reminder for me to buy more. I do and I had. He couldn't locate the replacement herbs I had bought and that was somehow my fault. :? Board duly cleaned and then he cooked.

Tonight I go to start a pasta sauce and discover that there are no chopped tomatoes. And the board is blank. I reckon it's a classic case of 'Don't do as I do etc etc etc . . . ' :) He is under some strain (as am I) but I won't make an issue of it, hence my moan on here. A lovely neighbour came to my rescue, his sauce is under way but he will not be getting meatballs. Stuff hurts too much and I can't be bothered tonight to deal with three pans on the hob. Life is too short, mine especially.

Today is my late mum's 90th birthday. I chatted to her younger sister earlier today, we have both been thinking of her and had good session of reminiscences, laughs and catching-up. That is the important stuff, yes? DD

    Hi DD,
    'Pompous twerp' I love that word twerp, such a polite way of calling someone a ******* idiot.

    My OH was like that last weekend he is never wrong in his eyes. :roll: Sometimes we just have to bite our tongues.
    Glad you reminisced with your family it definitely helps.

    I totally agree - time spent thinking of your Ma was far better spent that way than doing meatballs for someone who is very lucky he's not married to me :lol:

    I am not as understanding as you.

    Though the knowledge that you were proven right, and he proven to be less than perfect, does rather make me smile :wink:

    Take care today

    Love

    I couldn't put it better than frog, though I'd probably have used at least twice as many words :roll: Oh, and I'd have meant that he's lucky he's not married to me not her :oops:

    Us dames do nowty very well because we get lots of practice. :) My husband has reached that stage of life where he moans at the weatherperson about the weather. For crying out loud. :roll: My dad used to, as did my late father-in-law; it seems to be an exclusively male preserve. DD (which today means damedaisy. :D )

    Oh dear, save your breath to cool your porridge. I listen to it, it's becoming a very predictable grumble and, once I've learned it off by heart, I shall recite it with him just to annoy. :D damedaisy.

    oh DD they are all the same in there own way my favourite one is that I get oh you left this on or you left that on. then I walk into the bathroom and find the hot water running then in the kitchen and find the fridge left open and this is just 2 of many things. I just have to laugh it off or I would go round the bend.

    talking to your Mums sister and remembering is good .
    Take care

    It's bl**dy happened again. In sheer desperation thanks to 'creppy' ( :wink: ) hands etc I resorted to cheffing a late-mid-week-sweetish-curry (namely chicken and pineapple) in the slow cooker.

    I therefore required rice.

    After some physical effort I found the rice and . . . . . there wasn't any. He had used the the last and not put it on the board .

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh! DD

    I've solved the rice problem - I've bought two kilos of the stuff.

    I apologise Caliban :oops: - thank you. DD

    :lol: . My belovéd excelled himself earlier, he threw the remote into his lap and scored a direct hit on - well, you can guess. A few minutes of blue langauge and serious rubbing ensued whilst I howled with laughter. DD
