My wonderful wife

Well I've basically been in bed for the past 3 days with what I think is actual flu. I have to be careful, it's a word not to be bandied about lightly I know, but to be honest every time I get up, I'm absolutely knackered within 5 minutes and dissolve on the sofa with hot sweats.

So, my 8 month pregnant wife has had to do everything (well slightly more than she does on any normal day, I can't really say I'm some sort of super man)- plus be sympathetic and she has been genuinely sympathetic bless her. Which makes me think maybe I am ill because I know I'd be given short shrift otherwise.

Anyway today when I got up to go to the loo she was at the top of a ladder putting the brackets on the wall that she'd just jigsawed downstairs out of a spare piece of mdf. I need to get better soon.

Oh Six mate!

That sounds like the real McCoy alright.

They say you know you have the flu, if you saw a few £20 notes fluttering by, and just cannot possibly muster the energy to give a shit!

Hope it's passing and your wonderful wife can reap the rewards of being a bloody good sort.

I hope your better soon, Six.

I bought a jigsaw once : I have never experienced such failure with any sort of tool. I was inept to the point of being a danger to myself and others.

Your wife is a true superstar!

Six they do that. We call it nesting. The later the baby - the bigger the task.

Sanding and varishing a floor, size no object, just what they want. Feathering a nest mate.

You're a lucky man, my friend.

Did you post re this on the MB Six, I read something about Manflu...and you're right, what knocks us out a women would just tsk tsk and carry on...we are wimps; I hate to say it but I was the same, only ever got ill about once every couple of years but when I did I was a complete disaster area.

You don't need to get better soon unless your pride is unable to keep seeing her multi-tasking and doing the decorating that you hate...this 'flu' is psychosomatic you know...:-)

Sounds like you should leave the DIY to the undisputed chapeen, mate!
