Learn to fly

Feeling festive if little tired. My job is getting me down and I'm looking forward to the few days off at Christmas.
I have been doing my best to help the misses remain comfortable and stress free.

I have learnt the following things that I should already know but 'cos I'm a bloke its new to me:
  • I actually now know that the different washing machine settings really do mean something.
  • I know that the mass of cleaning products under the sink are plenty and there a great many things to remember when you cleaning different rooms.
  • I know that I'm no expert and I miss a few things.
  • I know that I had no idea how hard work it is keeping a home as well as doing a job.
  • I know that it keeps getting dirty as soon as you have finished cleaning.
  • I know I'm going to have to continue this for some time

Hi, I just came upon your blog from smarshyboy's blog . Congrats on the pregnancy. That was a sweet post, I can't wait for my husband to realize all these little things some day.
Good luck and keep up the good work.

Hello to both of you!! A, good job getting him to do all the cleaning :):) JMA cleans the cat litter box every day now but that's as far as it goes.

Wishing you both a happy and peaceful Christmas! Enjoy :)

Yes, I remember helping. I did it through most of the first trimester. Paul, a word of advice: break something. Nothing too valuable, mind you. Just something valuable enough so that she never wants you to clean / cool / wash again. Back to the Tele with a beer. It's genious.

Seriously, I'm glad you both are well. Merry Christmas.
