I hope I turned out ok. Maltby lasses are known for being tough tho. We just get on with it. 
 

I was more miffed that my hubby thought it was my job to buy for his dad!

I knew a Maltby lass.  Lived a long way from there but always went back to the dentist and hairdresser. Delightful girl, and, as you say, resilient.  Not the same since the mines closed.

Is your hubby a Yorkshireman Vamps?  If so then I probably agree with him, once married we expect our wives to remember all these sort of things, so we don't forget.:classic_smile:

That's ok Brian.l knew you weren't taking the mick, and even if you were I wouldn’t have been offended. I'm used to you by now and know that you and a few others on here have a good sense of humour. So do I, and just in case you hadn't noticed, I can give as good as I get😜

Oh how true. 55 years later and I think I've finally perfected it. I now know what he wants before he does, and if he doesn’t, then I'll tell him. 😆

It's not just Yorkshire men, I bought all birthday, fathers day and Christmas presents for my father-in-law, David's excuse was you are getting your dad's so you may as well save me the trip to the shops and get my dad's at the same time.

If I'm wrong my wife tells me so and if i'm right I keep my trap shut.
Also always tell them the truth unless they ask you ....
Does this dress fit me ok , for your sake lets hope it does .
I usually say "Here try this scarf on to go with it ,that fit's lovely    !  :classic_unsure:

Caprese salad

Grey mullet

Tarte au citron

 

lovely.  Thanks

 

in RL it’s a vegetable tagine with chick peas for our meat-free Monday.  I’ve got a Cook gin& tonic semifreddo in the freezer.  We might have some of that, or there’s a tin of green figs which would be nice with some luxury vanilla ice cream

 

 

Ah, food!

It’s eat, sleep, repeat, isn’t it?

I love it😆. It's funny how some things stick with you. When our son was little and he wanted some more sweets we'd say to him 'gone, all gone'.He then started to ask for gom goms  (as in gone gone) and it stuck. We even say it now sometimes. It can be embarrassing. 😆

kids do come out with some crackers. 
 

it’s Georgia in our house that bonkers. She will talk to anyone and you never know what’s going to come out of her mouth. 
she told princess Anna last year she liked her eyebrows, asked a woman in Argos a few months back if she sleeps. And today’s was “my tongue is tired” 

 

when Scarlett was little baby she used to make a grunting sound like all babies do when they go but she sounded like Janice off of friends. That stuck for years, “she’s doing a Janice” luckily for them we have stopped saying that. 
 

Thinking of that I often call the kids spadge. All our parent used to use the word so we seems to use it for ours too yet people look at me like I’m loony. 
( maybe it’s just our family but it’s sometimes “my little spadgaloos” I don’t think that’s an actual word though but it’s always stuck)

 

btw I think I prefer it dolphin nose 😂
