Last week I read a post from the Anxious Dragon on her husbands annoyances which got me thinking. My husband is my rock. Without him I wouldn’t be the mother I am. The wife I am. Or even the person I am. He is my soul mate, the other side to my coin.
Like with anyone you spend a lot of time with their little habits grate on you. And I know I irritate him, definitely more than he irritates me because sometimes I do it on purpose because it’s funny.
Now originally I was going to list all the things he does that irritate me, but as we were talking about this very post this morning he rattled off some of my most irritating points which had me crying with laughter. So it’s all about me instead….over to the husband.
I love you but you irritate me
1. You take four hours to make a cup of tea
You start making a cup of tea then get distracted and wander off. Stay focussed. Stay on task. MAKE THE TEA.
2. Burning the dinner
How do you burn pasta? Or boiled potatoes??
3. Your insistence on everything homemade
I come home and tell you I’ve found the best mince pies ever, bring them home with me, you eat them all and THEN say ooh I can make some.
No. Just buy them. You burn potatoes.
4. Falling asleep in 3 seconds of watching something
And then complaining that I’ve watched it without you.
5. Waiting for me to go to bed
And complaining that you’re tired – just go to bed!!
Get off it.
7. Eating my Naan Bread
We order takeaway. We order TWO naan breads. That’s one each. Hands off mine.
8. Your inability to make a food based decision
Chicken or lamb. Choose. They’re different beasts. Just choose.
9. Calling me monkey
I am not the three year old……….
