Thursday - Cooler and a bit damp

A bad day…

I got up this morning on time.  I was a tad late having breakfast, but I did have it and some tea too. I had a nice, quiet morning and was able to relax a bit.  

I didn’t get on with the kitchen until the afternoon, but I spent a couple of hours cleaning the top of the stove.  Parts of it weren’t bad because I’d done it a while ago, but parts of it were quite yuck.  

I finished around 5 pm and took a bit of a rest.  I’d been standing all afternoon and my hands and feet were sore.

F came home and was tired and in a bad mood.  He grumped around a bit, while I was getting dinner ready.  Didn’t help of course, just was grumpy.  I don’t know how it started, but all of a sudden I was being ignored and told that he didn’t want to have any of the food that I had prepared because I took too long.  It was mostly on the table, I don’t really know what he was talking about.   

Fine, so I ate and he cooked ramen of course and grumped at me.  I was upset because I looked in the sink and he’d thrown my expensive frypan in the basin and put a basket full of cutlery on top of it.  I told him not to do that so he told me that I shouldn’t use the fry pan anymore because it wasn’t any good. Considering the first time I used it, he scratched it by putting a sharp knife in it, I think he should have just kept quiet.  

Anyway, things got progressively worse.  I asked him for information for something for tomorrow, but he was the big hero and had to do some heavy lifting tonight.  In the process, he knocked something over and smashed the lid of my lovely glass teapot. It was an accident and he vowed to get me a new one, but really, why bother? This is the second one that he’s broken, and they are expensive, so I’m not going to take him up on that.  

I ended up having to do a whole lot of cleaning right then and there…I was planning to do it tomorrow, but had to do it tonight while he went to bed.  

I finally finished just before 10:00pm and since he seemed to be sleeping, decided to watch some TV.  I had a nice quiet evening alone.  Just the way I enjoy it. 

I know that the rainy season is brutal on him, but he should know that by now too.  I am not willing to bear the brunt of his bad humour nor his bad behaviour on a continuous basis.

Sadly, he has gotten up and has just had the loudest and longest sneezing fit I’ve heard in a long time.  We are very loudly not talking to each other.  Okay, so really, that’s about it for me. 

Tomorrow I’m supposed to cook a pork roast since I’ve had it defrosting in my fridge for a couple of days, but I’m not sure I’ll bother.  I might cook it and then re-freeze it!

Come back in a bit and see what, if anything, I get up to.  Until tomorrow….
