How do i know when my hubby is home from a trip?
That is easy - when my darling hubby comes home he "tidies" the cuttlery drawer!
He likes all the skinny long handled spoons to be together at the top and all the short rounder spoons to be at the bottom.
Pretty funny huh!
It would be even funnier if I could show you a picture of the perpetual mess that is his home office - it is a sign of my deep love for him that I don't!
(that and the fact that he would kill me!)
He has just been away for a month for work - he has window shopped down Rodeo Drive, had drinks at the IVY in Beverly Hills - saw Paris Hilton there!
He even got to cruise along the Seine - poor baby.
Imagine his delight at coming home and finding one and a half tonne of firewood which needed to be stacked.
After! Look how neatly it is stacked!
And not one complaint either!
We do love our fire in this house. With my arthritis the fire keeps the chill off the house and that makes life so much easier for me. That door to the right of the fire leads straight into my sewing room and just outside the sewing room is the
cutting designing table.
I have to say I am not the only one who likes it.
Oh it is such a tough life in this house for a dog!
Lucky she is cute.
My hubby travels a lot for work and usually I get along just fine - you can usually count on a light globe blowing as soon as he leaves, the roof will leak, the kids will get sick, some appliance will break etc - all good fun!
But this time we had a tragedy -
well, okay maybe a minor one -
oh alright perhaps tragedy is too strong a word
but whatever you call it I am not happy!!!
My salt shaker from my favourite every day set is broken!
When I travel I like to collect souvenirs that I can use - bowls, small plates, spoons, that sort of thing. I bought these P&S shakers last time I went to my home town of Perth!
After my hubby told me about Rodeo Drive and the IVY etc I decided he could get me a replacement set. I tasked him with the "don't come home without" requirement and LOOK!
He came through!
He did well! I love them!
I also collect fridge magnets. He visited some markets in NY - can you tell?
And check out these cute ones!
and finally he bought me a FROG!
This is pretty funny actually. You hold it by its back legs and stoke it along the ridges with the wooden thingy and it sounds like it is saying "RIBBIT!"
But the best thing my lovely hubby brought me home - was himself. He is still the nicest gift he has ever given me!
And I know this is a really bad photo but see that sweatshirt he is wearing?
I made that about 16 years ago! And he still wears it!
Welcome home honey!
Till next time..............happy stitching!
