AIBU to hope that DH will show some interest in planning for our holiday? He always relies on me to choose somewhere suitable and make all the arrangements, and this year I just hoped might be different, as we are emerging from COVID.
We don’t go abroad or to hotels( well, rarely). I have chosen a lovely spacious self-catering cottage, well equipped, meeting all his requirements, with a lovely garden, not too long a journey. DH has various needs relating to various health conditions, so that is taken into account. He will happily drive anywhere, but the rest is up to me.
We normally take a few basics from home ( cereals, tea, coffee) then do either a big shop on arrival, or a small shop for milk, butter etc then stock up next day, but with the pandemic, we get online deliveries, and I pop into Aldi at quiet times, so the thought of a big shop in a strange place is a bit daunting. I might try to get a delivery, though I am not sure how easy that will be.
We usually eat out at lunch time, and maybe two or three evenings, but DH is understandably not keen this year, so I can see it being not much of a break for me, having to think about meals, shop, prepare, cook…..I am trying to plan a few meals I can make and freeze to take. I can’t even get him to suggest anything for that! It all falls on me and if I get it right, he eats it with rarely a word of appreciation.
I have to do all the spade work, looking up places to visit online for opening times, whilst he just sits and snoozes.
Sorry for the rant, feeling a bit fed up.
I try to make sure we go to places I enjoy, but it is hard work making it suitable for his needs ( dietary, not far to walk, not hilly,……). If I say anything, he just replies “You arrange it all so well”. AIBU to hope for some input from him?
