Pat: my partner likes to cook but has no concept of cleaning (or not using six pans when one will do). I always clean as I go along so that by the time a meal is ready all you need to do is turn on the dishwasher and you're sorted. He always says he'll do it "later" and then I feel guilty about nagging him because he did just cook (I really enjoy cooking so can't even use the excuse of a "night off"). I know I know, feeling guilty about nagging a man is a huge flaw in my otherwise brilliance.
It's a bad habit I knew he had before I started going out with him so I guess if I haven't trained him by now I'd best... pull my socks up and get on with his training!
Looks like the grey and damp is set in here for the week. Best drag the wellingtons out!
Laura where in the world are you based? (Welcome by the way!)
DD: I hope your knitting goes well, one thing I have never managed to get the hang of is knitting: I swear it if were possible I actually knit backwards and end up with less than I started with. Not sure I agree with pushing things up Santas bottom though: things like that definitely put you on the naughty list!
Future father-in-laws birthday this weekend and I have been put in charge of the birthday cake. Due to my inability to make a decision my current plans are carrot cake, lemon drizzle cake, and possibly a bakewell tart. He is an amazing cook and I am actually feeling nervous about being able to make a cake anywhere near up to his standards. I'm not making them til Friday, so I've got plenty of time to make a few practice ones!
