Why I’m a bad wife

March 12, 2015

I count myself very lucky in the fact that when I was just 17 years old I met and fell in love with my now husband. He is my soul mate and I’d be honestly lost without him. Sometimes I do wondered though if I’m everything he wanted in a wife, especially as I’m not the best wife in the world.

Why I’m a bad wife…

I must share my news right now

Mr Boo works long hours and has a commute on top of them so by the time he has got in the front door I’m eager to fill him in on the day. What the kids have been up to, whether I’ve had a good day at work or any thing else I can think of. He on the other hand would like to come home, sit down and relax for a moment or two before I start chattering on.

However I don’t let him – I’m often found following him around the house chit chatting away whilst he is putting his coat away etc.


Whenever we are out and about Mr Boo loves to stop for a coffee – it is his fuel to get him through the day. The thing is, he always has to go and order his own coffee as I can never remember what combination of tall or grande, skinny or full fat, syrup or cream he takes. On the rare occasion I order it he ends up with a latte which I’m not sure if it ok or whether he is too polite to tell me it’s wrong. Add to this that because I don’t drink hot drinks I never make a coffee at home either.

Wishy washy

I’m terrible with keeping up to date with the washing. Almost every week I make the same panic attempt to have his football kit washed and dried. However, almost every week there is always something that’s not quite ready.

I know what I like and I like what I know

I’ve always been a plain Jane when it comes to food. I know the foods I like and the ones that I don’t. Whilst Mr Boo has opened my eyes and taste buds to foods I might never have tried there are some things that I just don’t like. The best example of this is Nando’s, hubby’s favourite restaurant however the chicken is too spicy for me so he hardly ever gets to eat there.

When all is said and done I truly do love him, and he makes me so very happy… I hope that despite my flaws he is just as happy with me.

    Haha we are the same in many ways here, sometimes im so tired and fed up of his plain ways of eating that he has to make his own dinner! Whoops

    I can totally relate do exactly the same. The talking the washing and the knowing what I like to eat.

    I am slightly worse because on hubbies days off I want him to come out and do stuff with me but really he would like time to himself to to decompress. I am working on giving this to him at least one of his days off.

      I too am always trying to fill his days off with family adventures when really I think he’d rather stay at home and chill out
