My Husband’s New Year’s Resolutions!

My Husband’s New Year’s Resolutions!

I don’t normally bother with New Year’s Resolutions as I don’t like to stress over the like things I enjoy (like chocolate everyday)! However, I reckon my husband could do with making a few and when the lovely Emily from Twin Mummy and Daddy tagged me in her resolutions for Nigel at DIY Daddy, I thought why not?

Don’t get me wrong I love the old ball and chain and he does a lot for us all but all men need a slight kick up the arse now and then eh? And to make it very fair, I have a feeling this post will follow with a list of all his resolutions for me. We shall see.

So hubby this is what you need to do…..

  • Stop half doing jobs. Now and then you clean the bathrooms. Great! But I have to follow suit and change the hand towels over, put all the toiletries back around the bath, put the cleaning stuff away. So I may as well do the whole thing.
  • Put your clothes AWAY! You tell me it takes a while to get sorted for my bath with the gremlin. Yes! This is because I use the wardrobe, not the floordrobe.
  • Stop buying more plants. If we have anymore in the garden and house people will start holidaying here thinking it is the Amazon Rainforest!
  • Stop reading to the gremlin and dumping all the books under the bed. There is pretty much a library under there and muggins here has to move them all back to the bookshelf periodically. Drives me nuts!!!
  • Stop having a bowl of cereal before bed. You could have had a treat and cuppa literally 40 minutes earlier but you still have that darn cereal. You are like a hamster.
  • Suck it up and play babies with your eldest. I know you hate it and always try to entice her to do something else, like look at the inside of the your computer(!) It is fun to play when you get going honestly!!
  • Put your effing shoes and coat away when you come in the door. Enough said.
  • If you want to buy something just BUY IT! Six months of price research and review reading takes all the fun out of it and it is soooo annoying!

Ah I better stop now for fear of getting a retaliation post.

If you are reading this and would like to have a go, consider yourself tagged!

    Oh, your post made me laugh out loud. Some of this resolutions are just right for mine too! Especially the last one! It makes me feel better though to know I’m not the only one with a hubby who does a six month research before buying! Soooo annoying!!!;)) P.S. Have you showed this to your darling?;) #TwinklyTuesday

    Hahahaha! THIS is so TRUE! My daddy researches purchases for months in advance too! He says that he enjoys that more than the item actually arriving! Crazy eh? #TwinklyTuesday x

    Oh dear oh dear, I think you have some ‘issues’ oh ginger one .
    I think books under the bed are a good idea, easy access for the following night
    But it is nice that you let Chris have a ‘treat’ PMSL, and what pray tell does he. Want to be when he grows up .
    Have to agree on the plants though, Chris you are a little errrr… ‘compulsive’ in your green fingered approach ☘

    Haha! Mine would be to actually close his sock drawer properly without half the contents poking out of the top (I don’t think he has ever closed a drawer fully in his entire life), stop putting a used wet spoon in the coffee jar, thus creating sticky bits of coffee on the sides of the jar, and, above all….STOP SNORING!!! (I love him really) #bestandworst

    Oh boy can I relate to this. My husband definately does half jobs and it gets right on my wick. Like the other day I asked gim to run tue hoover round so he did. Round the living room. Just the living room. We have a 3 story house ffs! What about the rest of the rooms? Sorry, it’s still a sore point lol. Men eh? What are they like? By the way, I don’t make new years resolutions either. I don’t really see the point. I never ever stick to them.


  11. January 18, 2017 / 11:30 pm

    haha, is this his new years resolutions or your new years venting page?

  12. January 18, 2017 / 11:51 pm

    Hilarious, oh my gosh I can so relate to this, fixing computers rather than playing babies ummm yes! Cereal at night YES, but you really had me laughing at 6 months of research, I always feel like I can’t buy him anything because I know he would research first. Funny guys! #bestandworst

    What a awesome idea for a post! I can only imagine what my husband would say mine should be. Haha. #Bestandworst

  15. January 19, 2017 / 4:59 pm

    Love this idea, I am not brave enough though!

  16. January 19, 2017 / 10:33 pm

    Oh what it is with the price matching and reviews, my husband is the same! He sent me a link earlier on with the top 10 best microwaves….seriously, they all the same thing, just bloody buy one!! #bestandworst

  17. January 21, 2017 / 12:19 pm

    I can hear the frustration in your writing haha! That last point is totally the same as mine…researches everything and I’m bored of it by the time it turns up! Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

  18. January 21, 2017 / 8:59 pm

    Haha, brilliant!! I should do this tag. Adi is sooo the same about researching stuff before buying, just be impulsive for a change, be a rebel. #bestandworst

    Ha ha! This is a great post honey. Mr H definitely does the same thing when buying something. It annoys me so much. And he expects the same from me. Doesn’t do much for impulse buys. Hugs Lucy xxxx Popping over, very belatedly due to a sick family, from #TwinklyTuesday xxxx
