Sign on the dotted line….

I know there’s a standing joke about hubby’s never listening to what we say but honestly I can’t catch a break. If i give advance notice of intentions to go out or meet friends he tells me that its too far away to think about and let’s discuss closer to the time. When I mention it closer to the time he blames me on arranging his day, week or night .. what are we meant to do!!

On one occasion I told him I was going out weeks before the date he said “Ok” and then I mentioned it again the week before, again he replies “Ok”, then a couple of days before and and I’m still getting the “Ok” answer, but when the night arrives and i’m getting ready, its like his world has crashed in shock. This time he doesn’t say “Ok”, this time he says “You’re going out? Where are you going? Would have been nice to let me know, what if I’d made plans!” Aaaagh!!

But fear not I have come up with a clever solution. I now write it down and get him to SIGN the night out notification to confirm he knows all about it. I then store carefully and right as he’s about to launch into his “poor me” speech I present the signed document and watch as his face contorts…It’s actually my favourite part of a night out now!!!!

Always pays to be one step a head so I’ve my 2019 calendar all signed off!!
