Raining today

It's supposed to rain all day, this means Steve will be moaning and mumping all day.

Yesterday he spent time in the garden, he went to the garden centre with a neighbour. When they came back they planted out the lavender and pinks they had purchased.

Steve also cut back a shrub that was overhanging the path.

Today he is supposed to be putting together the new table he's just purchased, so it will be a day of sulking because of the weather and bad tempered shouting as he tries to build the table and chairs. He didn't read the description before he purchased them and didn't realise they were self assembly!!

A couple  of days ago Steve told me I needed to start cooking again, not the carp I used to cook but 'proper food ' the stuff he's started buying from Iceland. In other words pre-fried food. Steve's always been an extremely fussy eater, I would go so far to say that he is obsessive  about food. He refuses to eat any fruit or vegetables and eats only rubbish.

I'm not really very good with junk food and I tend to burn it.

I would just put everything that he has bought from Iceland into the oven on the settings listed on the boxes for the time listed and then serve them up. When the electricity bill comes in be ready for even more moaning ... but then you can blame it all on his food.

And if you can't have the chocolate fingers with a clear conscience I do think you need to find yourself something suitable as a treat for yourself when you have had a bad day. Gosh you deserve something!!

Sounds like his mother was a crap cook and he’d enjoy burned food!

I hope you can get out and have some joy in your day today. Maybe a walk or meet up with a friend...

Feed him all the garbage he wants.
Put lots and lots of butter on top
of all the garbage. Oh and lots of salt.

Refuse to cook or eat his junk food, but point out to Steve that the instructions are on the box/packet, so he must cook his own. Tell him that you will only cook proper, healthy food. If it's possible to get food deliveries, you can order the food that you know is good and healthy. If his crap is filling the freezer, have a mass cook-up and present him with the (burnt) offerings, telling him it needs eating. Insist that you need space in the freezer, so stop buying so much rubbish from Iceland.
