Domestic Man.

The other week, the other-half had a meeting.
I ended up ironing her outfit for said meeting.
I can’t help thinking, is this what I have become, Domestic Man?
In the absence of a recognisable career is this my future?

I’m hoping 2018 will be more productive.

Ps. Domestic Man has no known super powers.

Bed hopping

I’m not  one to talk about my bedroom activities, that is until now.
Since the arrival of a baby in our flat, sleep has been the number one topic trending.

Early on me and the other half decided we would split night-time duties, thinking it best we both get some sleep, rather than both of us being permanently knackered.

In practical terms, this has meant sleeping in separate rooms and handing the baby over in the middle of the night. Initially the baby swap included me taking the cot from one bedroom to the other (not with the baby in it). The system may have seemed a little cumbersome but it worked for us.

Our system came under further scrutiny at Christmas, when we went back to our parents. Fortunately they both live on the same street. This still meant that instead of carrying the baby from one room to the other, I had to transport the baby from one house to the next, with the street doubling  for the corridor.

This meant that from any point between 2am -3:30am a neighbour struggling for sleep would have seen me wheeling a baby up the street, every night for a week.

These days the baby is sleeping a lot better, sleeping through to 5am most nights. A wake up call a little earlier than I would ideally like but it’s better than the disrupted nights sleep we were previously experiencing. Due to these early starts we’ve decided that we will take it in turns to sleep in the same room as the baby.

One day in the future me and the other half may even share the same bed. Having said that and whisper it, I reckon I sleep better on my own.

Where do you mix your porridge?

When making porridge I like to mix the milk and oats in the bowl as I can control the consistency. My other half persists in mixing it in the pan of milk.

With this in mind, where do you mix your porridge?

Is the traditional affair over?

Hola. Hope you are well.

What has happened to the traditional affair? One that happens organically, maybe with a colleague at work, or a chance encounter with a stranger in a bar.

Not one conducted via a website like Ashley Madison; where as long as you have an email address and a credit card you can order an affair. Plus, the old way, meant that if your partner did find out you could always say, you didn’t mean it to happen. This may be harder to believe when you’ve signed up to a site that specialises in affairs.

Having said that, these days people date online, so why shouldn’t they conduct their affairs this way? In these more technological times it’s conceivable that the whole arc of your relationship could be played out online. You could for example, meet your partner online, meet your affairee (not sure that’s a word) online, sort your divorce online, sell the marital home online, arrange access to the kids online etc… etc…

My Selfless Act

Hola. Hope you are well.

I got the other half an electric toothbrush for Christmas. I knew she wanted one, so got her one.

However, I accidentally let it slip that I bought the toothbrush with my Boots Advantage Points. She wasn’t overly impressed by this revelation and even canvassed opinion. Her mum said it was ‘grounds for divorce’. My first thought was, ‘we’re not even married’, my second was, ‘that’d make a good title for a song’.

In my defence, I’d built those points over the years and was going to buy myself an electric toothbrush but I didn’t want to get one for myself and leave my other half with electric toothbrush envy.

So with this in mind, is it wrong to buy presents with Boots Advantage Points? (loyalty points, vouchers et al..)

Feel free to let me know your thoughts via the comments button or on twitter @anunknowncomic

Ps. I’m now having to rebuild my Advantage points and I don’t shop at Boots much, so it’s going to take me a long time before I get my electric toothbrush, but I’m not looking  for sympathy for my selfless act.

Til next time, be nice to each other.

Don’t buy my book at £8

Hola. Hope you are well.

In what could be described as a continuation of the previous blog post, I’m back talking books.

About a year ago (I say a year but who knows when it was) I mentioned that the book I co-wrote, How To Dump Your Girlfriend was selling on Amazon for 1p.

Then recently I was tweaking my website and needed a link to my book and was horrified to see Amazon selling it for over £8. This caused me some concern as it only cost £5:99 when it first came out. At that point I was going to do a blog telling people not to buy the book at £8 as I knew it wouldn’t live up to this price. Due to life and a 5 day a week part-time job, getting in the way I never got round to doing that blog post, until now. In the meantime however, my book has dropped to under £4  which means we can all rest a little easier.

In other book news, I recently contributed a poem for the Ebook The Rebel Versus Society and this is only £1:49. That’s virtually giving it away.

And finally…. A couple of weeks ago I found out to my surprise that more than 50 people have subscribed to this blog. Thanks if that is you. Although as to not exclude people, thanks to all those people who read this blog but haven’t subscribed. In fact thanks to anyone who has clicked on this blog by mistake. You’re all welcome.

Til next time, be nice to each other.
