Thursday Thoughts

Today is my lovely hubby’s 60th birthday. A couple of weeks ago he had a big party in conjunction with 3 of his work mates who all have their 60th within a few weeks of each other and had a grand time, with lots of alcohol related presents given to him, and lots of friends and family turned up making it a fab night for him

Today is a busy day for him, he’s on holiday this and next week, and has been busy getting my shed up and running. My shed has been fighting back.  He got a power stapler gun from Amazon which broke down 5 minutes into starting the job of insulating the shed. Off he went to B&Q where he got the exact same staple gun (they didn’t have any others) at twice (!) the cost of what it was on Amazon, with the same result that it broke down 5 minutes after using it.  The make is ‘Stanley’ which is supposed to be quality gear, but obviously is a pile of poo. SO back to B&Q for a refund, and then bought a non-powered JCB staple gun which works a treat. On the first trip to B&Q he also bought extra insulation as he’d run out, and that turned out to be twice as expensive and shorter in length and poorer in quality than the stuff he’d got from Amazon.     Today he’s had a dentist appointment, visited Livvy to give her her birthday present and card (shared birthday of course 🙂 ) and gone to Wicks for more shed stuff.

The shed is my birthday present from last year and will eventually be my ‘studio’ for photography and making mosaics, and I consider myself extremely lucky to have a hubby that is doing this for me.  So my thoughts today are about a wonderful man who is kind and considerate, funny and clever, artistic and practical, and whom I couldn’t live without.

If you read this Hubby, thank you so much for all you do for me, you are my sun and stars xx

    What a lovely tribute to Phil. (And thanks for the tip about the dodgy staple gun too!)
    My sincere Happy Birthday wishes for his 60th, from a fellow Piscean.
    I will be 65 in a fortnight, and will also be making the most of a birthday week.
    Best wishes, Pete.
