By dint of bad fortune, my sweet darling wife and my two cherished little Awolings have disappeared off to Wales for the weekend to see relatives. Obviously, like many men who have found themselves in a similar situation, I am tussling with an inner conflict worthy of the great thinkers of our time. Therefore I'm handing the problem over to you lot (who are of course, the great thinkers of our time), in the hope that you can help me. Obviously, a grown man, alone with just alcohol, the internet, a glossy, yet poorly printed leaflet for some sort of telephone service featuring a nice lady called Liudvika and my wife's three sister's mobile numbers scribbled on a scrap of paper could very easily get bored. However I'm absolutely determined that won't happen to me, and the way I see it I have a couple of options. THe first option is this .... they return Sunday afternoon, so I have nearly two days to play with. If I have an early night tonight I can be up early to dust the house, strip all the beds, tidy the kid's rooms, hoover everywhere and if I get time, clean all the windows, inside and out. If I can manage all that, it just leaves me time on Sunday morning to nip to Sainsbury's and buy lots of lovely fresh flowers to place around the house. Hard work of course, but worth it to see the joy spread across my darling wife's face when she returns home. My other option is .... to only clean one side of the windows. Do you think she would notice? All advice appreciated.
