Doing things "right"
Sorry to say I was not able to do much about my School of Rock plan this weekend, as my wife was not feeling too good. As a result I spent a lot of my time cooking (which is usual for weekends anyway), washing, walking the dog, looking after the kids, etc. I did manage to fit in an hour of painting my toy soldiers on Saturday and about half an hour on guitar on Sunday, but not much else. Oh well, at least we have the long Easter weekend coming up, and I have extended it by taking Wednesday and Thursday of too! Yippee!
Anyway, on to the topic of today's blog. It was while I was pegging out clothes on the washing line that I realised that my wife was watching me.
"Just checking that you are doing it right".
This is a trait that runs in her family. The women have a fixation with how certain things are done, such as how washing is hung out. If it is done wrong they will march out into the garden and, regardless of how ill they are supposed to be, repeg every single piece until it is "right".
Some times friends will ask if it bothers me. Nope, I just learn the "right" way and do it that way. OK, so she still checks on me, but what the heck. It means I can tease her by deliberately doing it "wrong". He he.
