This was evidently a conversation between yourselves in the workshop out of earshot?My lad is learning fast. He’s 16. I said to him a while back “marry a woman like your mum”
Not EXACTLY like his mum, obviously. That would be freaky weird, but a woman you can trust and who lets you do what you want in a day as long as you’re home at night.
He said “that’s no good, I can’t understand what she’s going on about half the time”
He’s catching on.
Similar, I'd go do some jobs until I had decided to agree with her rather than argue.When I was newly married , we had an agreement , if an argument looked like getting out of hand , i would just go out ,and do a few jobs before returning . By then , it would probably have cooled down . Consequently , I've led something of an outdoor life ! Doesn't matter now , I've only got myself to fall out with
Nothing like that for me though . My marriage lasted 60 odd (Happy) years , only ending with her death 2 +years back . Now , I haven't even got a dog!Similar, I'd go do some jobs until I had decided to agree with her rather than argue.
After 12 years even that wasn't good enough and now facing the financial realities of divorce in the UK, still at least the dog likes me
