Life is fairly straight forward for us guys. We do what we have to do, and as long as there are beers in the fridge and some grub in the kitchen, we're basically happy. I have no idea about furniture, interiors, trimmings or anything like that. In fact, I'd be hard pressed to describe the furniture that we do have. I know we have a sofa because I sit on it most nights and I think itâs white because the 'ole domestic COS is always moaning how easily it stains. So it was a real eye opener when "she who must be obeyed" started lecturing me about how our furniture etc didn't "fit-in"! Fit-in, what the hell is that about? It all came through the front door, so it must fit in. It seems that now we are on the Officers patch, we'll have to conform to a style of interior design that you'll never see in a magazine or on one of those naff TV programmes. Things like mis-matching sofa and chairs, numerous side table and lamps (none matching of course), numerous framed (none matching!) pictures of children, parents, pets and odd looking people who they've probably never met. No TV in the living room, or a small B&W one at a push, a bookcase or two (but not containing Sven Hassell classics!), non-issue curtains (handmade preferably) and of course a sprinkling of appropriate magazines (well thumbed to give the impression that someone actually reads them) on the coffee table. I'm sure that there are other "combat indicators" that tell you you've entered an Officers MQ - the "trouble and strife" needs to know them ASAP, itâs her turn to host the next coffee morning!!!!!! As for me, I'm volunteering for TELIC!!
