    We even cheat on the shirt front in this house and buy Van Heusen non iron shirts which really don't need ironing if they've been hung neatly from a hanger to dry! I don't do ironing unless I really need to πŸ™‚

    Hehehe, sounds exactly like my husband, except I&#39;d have to add empty bins and bath time duties to the list! πŸ˜€ x

    Ha ha, this is fab. Have you ever thought of getting a soft-structured carrier for your little ones? Much comfier and less complicated than those with buckles/metal bars to keep them in place. On BMB, my profile picture is hubby carrying 19m old in a mai-tai carrier. One size fits all! (Mummy, Daddy, toddler, newborn, grandparents etc etc…) If you&#39;re interested,I can recommend some

    Charlies Dad; Yes for sure!<br>Hannah; good idea<br>Clarey; Ta!<br>All grown up; yes, I have a Kari-me which I use al the time- hubby is 6ft 4 tall and nearly that wide and there is no chance of getting any wrap style carrier to fit him- we have tried- honest! πŸ™‚

    Ha ha, my hubby is only 5ft7, so our mai-tai and storch wrap fir us both fine! Bless you. It&#39;s nice to bump into other babywearers πŸ™‚

    Urgh. I don&#39;t want another wife, never mind a bloody husband….

    I&#39;ve got one, but he doesnt do all that though!<br><br>However, his review is due I&#39;ll have to get him to sign another contract….if he&#39;s lucky enough.<br><br>Great post RMx

    I guess you&#39;ll have to keep him then!!<br>I wonder though if you listed out everything you did and compared it to what he does what the balance would be then? πŸ™‚

    Hey Sandy, I do a 50 hour working week on top of that too I&#39;ll have you know :)<br><br>(and bath time/bins)

    I&#39;m sorry Alex, I did not intend to cause offence, it was meant to be a light-hearted remark.<br>My husband&#39;s list would be very similar, just substitute &#39;change cat litter&#39; for &#39;clean fish tank&#39; and you&#39;re pretty much there.<br>I&#39;m glad you&#39;re appreciated.

    No worries Sandy, I sometimes forget when I type people can&#39;t see the big grin on my face πŸ˜‰
