I do wish he would not keep working out driving routes for me that avoid 'dangerous' roads.

Obviously, I take no notuce. grin

How do you know your DH/partner loves you?

He is prepared to put off business trips in the spider season!

He makes sure there is always a lot of housework for me to do, to help keep me fit and active.

How thoughtful you are Mr Lester

No one thing springs to mind but he does help around the house a lot. If he goes into town alone he will randomly come home with a bunch of flowers, from a florist no less.

When I was working and he was retired, my DH used to be out de-icing my car very early in the morning, to save my poor RA damaged hands.

Sounds like mine kitty!

I know because he tells me all the time and gets very cross if he hears a crash in the house and I don’t answer that I am okay immediately. 😂

Mr SP cooks my favourite meals and repairs all the things I break because I am clumsy.

No Kittylester not “but”, because

ninathenana Sat 09-Nov-19 08:48:00

Oh yes, dragonfly DH does that.

MawB Sat 09-Nov-19 08:48:22

“(Because) he wants you to avoid dangerous roads ?”

Cherish him

kittylester Sat 09-Nov-19 08:56:06

I do cherish him, maw, but I have driven for 46 years without major incident even on 'dangerour' roads grin

kittylester Sat 09-Nov-19 08:56:41

Dangerous not dangerous roads!!

NanKate Sat 09-Nov-19 08:59:15

Always sorts the car for me, wiping down windows or de-icing.

Brings me flowers throughout the year.

Never minds that I watch hours of tennis from all over the world.

Takes over the cooking if I am unwell.

He also drives me mad with his pedantic ways. Copious notes for me to read in tiny writing.

I think I will keep him. 😉

dragonfly46 Sat 09-Nov-19 09:01:06

Yes but you have to admit kitty it was pretty hairy yesterday with the floods. As maw says cherish him.

Jangran99 Sat 09-Nov-19 09:12:10

He listens to my long, convoluted stories without saying, "Is there a point to all this?"missed

He explains the bits in a drama that I missed because I shut my eyes for a second!

Jane10 Sat 09-Nov-19 09:24:07

Hmmmm. Very hard to tell right now. It's my birthday today. I got a small box of supermarket chocs and he's off to work on his car all day as usual. Luckily, kind friends have risen to the occasion. Just feeling cheesed off with DH. angry

Happy birthday Jane10 flowers[cake]

NanKate Sat 09-Nov-19 09:30:00

A very happy birthday Jane.

I would buy yourself a very nice gift today and tell your DH you have saved him doing so. Don’t hold back on the price.


shysal Sat 09-Nov-19 09:32:34

Happy birthday, Jane10. Hope DH comes up with something else later to mark the day.

Nannylovesshopping Sat 09-Nov-19 09:33:01

I would make that the most expensive present he has ever bought you😂

cornergran Sat 09-Nov-19 09:39:59

Happy birthday jane10. Your day can only improve smile.

Birthdays can be a minefield. I also know Mr C loves me but did struggle when it was somehow my fault that he had a minor accident collecting a birthday cake for me. I wasn’t even in the car hmm. Thinking car routes we never, ever agree on the best way to get from A to B, I am of course always right grin.

Mine was buying himself some trousers in M and S and was persuaded by the cashier to buy bought me the M and S beauty advent calendar, with the proviso I "could take it back". Not something I hankered after but now have decided to keep!

Jane10 Sat 09-Nov-19 10:32:16

Thanks everyone. Sorry to hijack your thread kittylester. I was just feeling sorry for myself as I read it. It's got worse too - DD and DGSs phoned to say happy birthday and it turns out that they could have come for a birthday lunch but DH put them off and told me they were busy. He's just obsessed with that car of his. Needless to say they're on their way round! smile

Nonnie Sat 09-Nov-19 11:00:49

OH Jane I hope he makes up for it later.

DH must love me, he has put up with me for so many years and lets me drag him off on holiday when he doesn't want to go. Then he has a thoroughly great time and thinks he organised it!

Alexa Sat 09-Nov-19 11:12:34

What is knowledge? Knowledge is justified true belief.
One may be justified in believing he loves you but it may nevertheless not be true.
