My husband (aka The Wonderful Man) was away for the whole of last week helping our son with jobs around his flat (jobs in this house are still waiting......hmm). He arrived home on Saturday evening with just enough time to shower and change before we went out to dinner with friends; so no time to chat. The following morning (Sunday) he left for the office to catch up on his admin before I was even awake. We then met up in the late afternoon at a cafe with his parents and our daughter and her family; so no time to talk together. On to our church meeting (where dear friends had prepared him a meal) and then home by nine o'clock, where husband shot off to pack his bag in order to leave for work early the next morning. He left the house before I woke and won't be home now until Thursday night. I can cope with all the above and only feel slightly niggly - but HE'S TAKEN MY COMPUTER MOUSE WITH HIM!!!!!!! And that is just too much!!! AIBU?
What niggles you?

Where do you live grrannyactivist ? I've got a spare mouse grin

My daughter has had a problem with mice in her new house!
Shall I give her your address?

annodomini Tue 03-Dec-13 23:01:53

No, YANBU. To separate a woman from her mouse is indeed a grave offence. hmm

Nelliemoser Tue 03-Dec-13 23:09:03

I would have gone out straight away and bought a cheap and cheerful new one. I cannot really manage without a mouse.
I need it for my Freecell addiction!

Agus Tue 03-Dec-13 23:13:18

Leave himgrin. Sorry I don't have a spare mouse grannya but like Nellie' I do have a Freecell addiction blush

YANBU. Never mind the mouse, go out and buy an iPad!!

LizG Wed 04-Dec-13 00:10:20

Demand he buys you an IPad for Christmas - no mouse required! This action could be deemed 'mental cruelty'.

Lona Wed 04-Dec-13 07:12:00

My name is Lona and I too have a Freecell addiction! grin

Get yourself a secret stash of 'mouses' in case he does it again!

DH used to take both sets of car keys to work with him - until I sent a taxi to collect them and made him pay the bill. grin

On the same basis, buy another mouse and keep it in a safe place - just in case. grin

ill'e just go and ask one of my 2 cats to go an find you one grin

Stansgran Wed 04-Dec-13 08:31:39

Am i missing out? What is Freecell?

janreb Wed 04-Dec-13 09:16:53

My husband takes the tv remote to the toilet with him, but that doesn't beat my friend's husband who took their remote to the chip shop with him!

PRINTMISS Wed 04-Dec-13 09:19:03

I don't know either Stansgran, so that makes two of us - I'm quick you know!

Ana Wed 04-Dec-13 09:22:18

I, too, am a Freecell addict! blush

(as well as Hearts and Spider Solitaire...)

Lona Wed 04-Dec-13 09:28:32

Ana It's Spider Solitaire that has me really hooked!

Charleygirl Wed 04-Dec-13 09:33:21

Stansgran and PRINTMISS add a third, I have not got a clue.

AlieOxon Wed 04-Dec-13 09:44:48

Spider Solitaire hypnotises me. Last computer got it deleted eventually; and it will come to that again.
I was on Minecraft for a long while, I build stuff and don't fight monsters, but I play that less now.

Aka Wed 04-Dec-13 09:45:26

Make that four.

annodomini Wed 04-Dec-13 09:56:10

I seem to have beaten my Freecell addiction because Gransnet addiction has replaced it. blush

FlicketyB Wed 04-Dec-13 16:03:52

Go out and buy yourself the most expensive mouse you can find, diamond encrusted preferably - and charge it to him.

Quite understand how you feel. I had a DH with a work life like your DH until he finally retired completely last year, and yes, it is the small things like that, the straw that breaks the camels back.

Mind you, when it stops and you have him home all day every day .................

Aka Wed 04-Dec-13 16:12:30

Sell all his stuff and treat yourself to a self indulgent Christmas. Or give it all away to a homeless shelter. Your choice, whatever makes you feel better.

coastwallker Wed 04-Dec-13 16:18:22

Freecell is a very addictive game girls.
Click on Start then Games and you should find it. But start playing at your own risk!

Nonnie Wed 04-Dec-13 16:19:59

Five of us.

DH does the car key thing too but wouldn't dare touch anything in my office! He knows when he would be going just one step too far!

GrannyA You have a few days before he comes back to think of a suitable way to show him how you feel. Perhaps some GNs can make suggestions? grin

KatyK Wed 04-Dec-13 16:20:19

Asda do cheap mouses? mice? meeces?
