I am a terrible wife…Spouse…Whatever.


I am a terrible wife. Last night I (finally) spotted an envelope on our fireplace mantle, addressed to the both of us.

‘What’s that for?’ I ask.

‘What date is it?’ hubby replies, smugly. Well, smirkingly.

‘Um… Um…’

Oh yes, it’s about to be our seventh wedding anniversary! And I even got the number of years wrong on my first try.

At least one of us is a romantic (and I’m sure he gets it from his mum, who gave us the card!)

Love ya, babe – every year seems just like the last, and that’s a GOOD THING. I promise 🙂

  1. Haha! It’s funny in a way. Hubby is really not a romantic, but every once in a while he’ll do something to surprise me. You sound like my best friend (her and her hubby are my and mine’s opposite; he’s the romantic and she so is not!) Once, when we were dating, he wrote “I love you” in shaving gel on the shower wall… Men are so goofy.

  2. Yep! I’ve got a big softie, marrried to me, the big hard-ass 🙂 He doesn’t seem to mind, just laughs at me. I totally feel for any man who is as crap as I am with these things, though – at least my other half doesn’t punish me for being thick!

  3. My mother is doing good to remember her own birthday and how old she is. She’s got a big heart and loves deeply she’s just terrible about dates, etc. If it wasn’t for my sis & I and the fact that Dad & her take a small trip each year “around” anniversary time, she’d miss it too. She never gets the years right – even after all these years. So no, you’re not a bad wife. 🙂

    • I got flowers, a tasty Indian meal, and the three Hunger Games books – he got to buy and also enjoy the flowers, eat (and pick up) the meal, and hear me natter on about the books. I am truly a terrible partner!

Thoughts? Gardening tips? Cocktail recipes? Don't just like and leave, please - I can talk for Ireland and would love to prove it!
