There was one box left to unpack!

 I'd just sat down for a rest when Steve decided to unpack the last box, he told me to come and help.

I told him no, I was taking a breather. I've unpacked every other bloody box!

Cue a major tantrum and stuff in the box thrown away, heyho, hopefully nothing important.

It's bitterly cold today, Steve went into Reading to have a pub breakfast and look for a wall unit to store all his crap. He couldn't find what he wanted.

He's decided we won't have a TV as he can't find a unit he likes to stand it on. I'm not bothered as my eyesight is deteriorating so quickly I wouldn't be able to watch it for long.

He's sulking now, there are people in the summer house, he is complaining that I'm not going to join them and he gave up the boat for nothing. I don't need to spend every waking minute with the neighbours and he'd soon complain if I did. I'm just grateful that the neighbours are friendly and there are things going on that I can join in with.

That all sounds very familiar to me - this week I've had a virus which laid me up for a couple of days - this charmer had tantrums too about keys,remote control,torch-Any thing!- then eventually I said - "right that's it -I'm calling for assistance" - he shut up x

I am sorry that no matter what you do, Steve will not be happy. I am glad you are getting settled in your new home and hope you will enjoy it there! What does Beano think of it?!?

I’m glad you are able to join in with Neighbours in the summerhouse when you wish. It must be good to be settled in your new home. Is it a retirement complex? The gardens look lovely for when the better weather comes.x Catriona

Oh well, if anything is missing after the move and Steve starts to complain you can say quite legitimately 'it must have been in that box that you emptied into the bin'. You must have the patience of a saint by now.

Steve seems to unload his drama on you at every turn.

I don't know you or your circumstances so I apologise if I'm talking out of turn but my friend's husband used to complain about everything she did - including walking on the lawn after he'd just mowed it - until he went onto Prozac.

Piggy in the middle

One day when I was in the summer house a neighbour made some strange comments about me watching tv too loud and glared at me. I was confused...
