Oh Husband I’m sorry!
When you hear the word wife what image does it conjure up in your mind? Despite being quite open minded I still see pictures of a domestic queen from the 50s. Red lips, high heals, an awesome cook and general sex goddess. Well I’m ginger so red lipstick doesn’t suit me, I can’t wear heels since going over on my ankle, I can boil an egg and sex goddess? *Snorts*.
Since I had my gremlin I’m not always sure I’ve been the best wife and since I have started blogging this may have got a tad worse. Hubby now has to deal with me swanning off to the gym, sneaking off to the laptop to do some sneaky writing AND bits of paper and glitter all over the dining room floor from my scrapbooking. Obviously I am spending time with my beautiful daughter, attempting to keep the house tidy (the cleaner has not come for a bit) so the old ball and chain is getting a bit neglected. And trust me he notices.
So I thought I’d write a little apology; dear husband I am sorry (honestly)….
- That you are trying to tell me about your day at work and I’m reading something ever so important on Twitter. I will try and listen harder.
- That I don’t come up to bed when you do and you are tired. I know you like to chat before bed but every second downstairs when the gremlin sleeps is freedom! I know as soon as I come to bed talking is banned. Well it’s sleep time now isn’t it?
- That I apparently don’t notice all the chores that you have done in the house. It’s tricky to see when there are crumbs all over the surfaces, the gremlin’s PJs strewn over the lounge floor and a dirty nappy on the landing.
- That I resemble a wild animal as I don’t shave as often as I should and I will try to more, even if it means wrestling my razor from our daughter as we share a bath.
- That you always have to lock the front door and turn the dish washer on. I need to check my blog stats one more time but I will try and switch the laptop off 5 minutes earlier.
- That I am too tired for a bit of before bed action. I’m off to buy some crotchless knickers as we speak.
- That I don’t always snack enough in the afternoon and I get hunger-induced grump. I will eat in the cupboard so our daughter doesn’t find me.
- That I took the remaining chocolate from the fridge to my Grandma’s. I didn’t have time to go to the shop and I may as well not even bother visiting empty handed (cute gremlin in tow or not).
- That I am totally incapable at stacking the dishwasher: I will try harder to ensure it is suitably packed with our daughter trying to eat the dishwasher tablet.
- That I get all glazed over when you start discuss anything related to computer security when it happens to pop up on the telly. Sorry babe, I just want to watch something on the telly that has words with words with more than 2 syllables.
