As lovely as they are, every now and then you do get that little bit niggled by them.
I mean, my wife is lovely, love her to death, but she does things every now and then that make me niggled. Like tonight, she is in the shower and suddenly I hear a scream, I run upstairs and it is a moth that has scared her.
We take turns to cook, when it is my turn she sits in front of the telly until I deliver her evening meal. But, when it is her turn, I have to get up every 2 or 3 minutes as she wants this out of the cupboard, or can I drain this, can I mix that, can I tell her if it is enough for me, can I chop the meat up ready, carry in the dinner plates, set up the cutlery etc etc.
And then, when I am driving, she will suddenly jump in her seat and shout "look" so loudly that I am panicking and hitting the brakes, only for her to say "aaah did you see that squirrel" or "Look!!!!! ..................a bunny rabbit in the park aaaah".
And she cannot go to bed without me. Or if she does, she sits and waits for me. And I turn the lights out as I am ready to sleep, but no, not her, this is the best time for her to talk to me. Just when I am so knackered I have finally crashed into bed, now she wants to talk about her day. Now she wants to ask what we should buy people for birthday presents or christmas.
If I lived with another bloke, would just be watching sport, drinking beer and opening the door to the Kebab delivery man.
But I would miss the closeness of our relationship, that bond of trust, the moment of intimacy. Ok, I mean sex.
