Yesterday afternoon was quite chilly so I decided to light the fire earlier than usual.
P must have heard me rustling around with the paper and kindling as he came rushing out of the office just as I was on my knees in front of the hearth trying to get a match to strike.
He just loomed over me saying, "No, no. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong" as if there was a right and a wrong way to strike a match.
Have you ever felt like giving someone a good slap???
I easily got the second one to strike by the way.
Have you thought of buying a lighter?ReplyDelete
If I attempt to make the bed in the morning. Somebody remakes it again.
Ha, ha. I always have to laugh when I see my OH actually get inside the duvet cover when we change the bedlinen 🤣Delete
I would probably have burst into tears. If he came out of the office after he heard you laying the fire in the way you describe it sounds like he didn't like what you were doing full stop.ReplyDelete
We often have some debate over the best way to light and maintain the fire. He has his way and I have mine. It's the same with driving and parking, and as Northsider says above, bedmaking too!Delete
You sound like you have done well to maintain a long relationship with him.Delete
I think I must have a lot of patience.Delete
You should have set fire to his trousers.ReplyDelete
I was very tempted to do worse.Delete
Was the air blue from your tongue lashing or did you smile sweetly and gently ask him to show you how it should be done??ReplyDelete
Once he had recovered from his black eye he agreed I had made a perfect job of it 😉Delete
Peregrine was probably in the boy scouts where lads are taught to strike matches properly. Sorry to say this JayCee but you should have been grateful for his chivalrous intervention.ReplyDelete
He can't have been in the boy scouts as I've never seen his woggle.Delete
You should switch the light on.Delete
