Thought for the Week

"A hug is a perfect gift - one size fits all and nobody minds if you give it back."

Husband Meme

I stole this from Laney, who in turned took it from Akelamalu

How long did you date? We dated for 16 months and had a baby before we moved in together, and we married 6 months later.
How old is he? He's 46, 5 years older than me, which I always thought would have been great as we would retire in the same month of the same year... then the government said women had to work til 65 and that put paid to that! Bloody politics.
Who eats more? err... if I had to pick one it would be him, but I would be a very close second
Who said “I love you” first? I really can't remember, but I think it was him
Who is taller? He is, by about 5", which is just right.
Who sings better? He does. My singing is best reserved for the car when I'm on my own, and even then the radio has to be loud enough to drown me out!
Who is smarter? He is, without a doubt
Whose temper is worse? Mine. Neither of us are particularly short tempered, but he is far more easy going than I am.
Who does the laundry? I used to, but since becoming ill, he does ours and the girls do their own.
Who does the dishes? He does, always has. I used to cook and he would clear away.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Now see, I'm not sure if this is the right side as you stand at the foot looking at the bed or the right side from a laying in bed position, if it's the latter, then I do.
Who pays the bills? Everything concerned with money in our house is paid from the only account we have, we've never gone in for 'his' and 'hers' when it comes to the finances.
Who cooks dinner? As before, I used to, but now he does that too.
Who drives when you are together? This one's easy. Not only have we always shared finances, we have ALWAYS shared the driving 50/50. He drives there, and I drive home!!!
Who is more stubborn? Me, definitely.
Who asked who out first? He asked me, but we had known each other for some time, and those of you who have visited for a long time will have read about us getting together in two of my Memory Monday posts. If you missed them you can see them here and here
Who kissed who first? He kissed me.
Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? I am. My stubborness doesn't stretch to not admitting when I'm wrong.
Whose parents do you see the most? We have only mothers living, and we each see our own the most.
Who proposed? He did
Who is more sensitive? I am. I always go out of my way to make sure everyone around me is happy.
Who has more friends? He does.
Who has more siblings? He was an only child, I have a brother and 2 sisters.
Who wears the pants in the family? He does, but only cos I let him!!!! lol

I like the idea of you driving back home. That means when you both go to the pub, for a meal, family do and such like he can have a drink! I think this idea should be made part of the marriage vows!

Ali said...

Mike ~ lol, thats exactly why we do it, but he thinks its clever cos he can say we SHARE

Akelamalu said...

I really enjoyed reading more about you Ali, it's a nice meme this one! :)

I like that you give him permission to wear the pants, just like me and MWM.

Ali said...

Ake ~ I don't often do meme's but like you say, this was a good one.

I have to let him wear the pants, he'd look down right hilarious in a dress!!

Miss Understood said...

Great answers, Ali.

If you think that was a good meme, what about this one:

Imagine you could send a letter back in time to yourself when you were 13 years old. What would you write to yourself?

I have tried this so many times, and failed. It's like having therapy!

Ali said...

Laney ~ Oh my God, already my head is spinning, trying to work out where I was at, at the age of 13!! I will give it some thought,and thx for the idea. x
