Luckiest Girlfriend

 |  Home & Garden, Parenting, Personal

I felt somewhat like the luckiest girlfriend in the world last night. Karl started his Summer Holidays on Monday, but because I was sick and didn’t go to work on Monday, yesterday was his first day alone. I left him two things to do: pick up a shelf-thingy from Homebase that they had on sale and peg the washing I’d started on the washing line.

I got back last night to not only discover that he’d bought a set of shelves and pegged the washing out (he did a good job too — I have high standards and I don’t like peg marks on clothes) but he also tidied and hoovered the bedroom, washed the bed linen and pegged them out to dry too. He had the kettle hot ready for a cup of tea for when I walked through the door and he’d started repainting the lean-to shelter on the back of the house.

I can just see him as a househusband.

    *blush* t’was nothing! Got to do something to keep me from noticing my cold, haven’t I? ;) I’m at work right now, but I’ll probably head off at lunch. The Semprons are going fine..:) Then, more washing! Haha! I’d repaint the kitchen, but…I’d rather just move..;)

    Oi, Jem..cheeky. ;) If I can put up SMARTBoards level and not have them fall off the wall, I can put up shelves! Besides, thats what Tom’s for…! ;)

    At the local boyfriend shop, of course. ;) I saved up and went for a top-end model. I didn’t get a free air freshener, unfortunately…

    You’re super-lucky to have Karl around. It’s great to find a male who is one step ahead of everything. Luckily, my model is a pretty good one, though prone to need lots of attention… not that it’s a bad thing, ;)

    I am impressed! Very seldom do I come across guys who are actually willing to do the housework out of their own free will. (Apart from the guys I know who are the oldest child in the family, and have been doing their younger siblings’ laundry since young.) Most guys prefer to go out to work, though. :(
