Just remember in 10 years time not to say 'you're the prettiest woman in our house'...I'm up to my neck in it.
During a romantic evening I held my wife, kissed her deeply on the lips and looked into her eyes.
" You're the most beautiful woman on our street" I told her.
She pushed me away.
" You used to tell me I was the most beautiful woman in the universe"
As she stood with hands on her hips...You know the stance.
" But that was 31 years ago" I mumbled.
I nearly added, Times Change......but kept my gob shut.
I'm now on jankers,
And getting the, "Evil Stare"
Yes I'm the same, with young children money was spread thinly, my hubby spent out on a big bouquet for an occasion, (& tbh it's rare that florists put anything decent in,) I felt he'd spent too much. I've said over & over since that a £2 supermarket bunch bought now and again for no reason other than he just wants to or it's been a stressful week means more to me than an over priced once a year 'well it's what's done.' When I was expecting our first, I requested a steamer so we could cook healthier. My poor hubby got a roasting from a woman in the lift as she'd asked him who it was for, (cheeky mare!) He was very relieved when I was very happy on Xmas day!bought my wife a fitness tracker and a set of scales for valentines day.
turns out, I have a good wife, she wanted both.
got bollocked for buying flowers from a florist last year when she'd been to hospital. "what you wasting money for, go to aldi"
I'm a lucky man me.
