So, we've been living in this house for almost 8 months now. Yes its bigger and far more beautiful than the old house but I could probably cover every room and cupboard in around 2 minutes flat. Carl on the other hand....
He was very kindly keeping an eye on the dinner for me last night as I'd had a really busy day and was busy keeping George occupied (who was showing no signs of wanting to go to bed). Bangers and mash, George's favourite. So nothing too difficult luckily as Carl is no Jamie Oliver. Anyway, the spuds were ready to mash and sausages turned down low. So Carl shouts:
"Nat, where's the colander to drain the potatoes?"
"In the cupboard where it always is" I reply
.....no reply, so I assume he's found it.
"It's not" He shouts
"Try the dishwasher then" I said
"Nope, not in there either" He said
"Are you sure its not in the cupboard, I remember putting it away last night" I asked
Then I get.....
So I roll my eyes and shout back...
"The cupboard under the oven where it ALWAYS is with the other pans"
silence for quite a few seconds....
"OOOHHH! yeah got it.... I didn't know that cupboard was there".
HE DIDN'T KNOW THAT CUPBOARD WAS THERE!
We've been here 8 months and its quite an essential cupboard in my eyes. Jeeeez!
Ladies, you can imagine my face.
To all you wonderful Dads. Have a great Fathers Day! We love you really.
