    Default I'm a bachelor for the week

    SWMBO has gone visiting daughter, husband and new baby and left me on my own for the week. It's certainly very quiet with only two cats for company.

    Before she left I jokingly suggested that I have a sweet young thing call in to visit, but she laughed and said that I would not be able to keep up, let alone keep it up. She does not have a very good opinion of me, but then after 43 years I suppose she's getting to know me.

    So does anybody have any suggestions as to what to do while "the cat's away"?

    Thanks very much for that, Wainui. Very amusing and some very good suggestions.

    I am single these days, but when I wasn't one thing I liked to do when alone for a day or more was cook myself something that I never got to eat because my partner didn't like it. In my case curried sausages.
    Sounds silly but I really enjoyed it as an occasional treat.

    I would suggest making sure the house is clean and tidy when she gets back which will impress her.

    Clean the house and she might go away more often!

    Mines away for 2 months. Time to enjoy hot curries, wash the dishes once a day, not after every meal and binge watch TV series she doesn't enjoy. Let the laundry stack up to do once a week and have double espressos rather than a single shot each...

    Great idea. Do it once and you'll end up doing it forever.

    "Meantime", start saving for all the new furnishings to replace the old stuff that got "ruined" when you screwed up the cleaning. Sheep stand in the rain without any lasting harm, how come a simple trip through the washing machine turns sheepskin rugs into lambskin mini-mats with a super dense pile?

    I have washed wool clothes in the washing machine.
    The trick is, don't do a hot wash.
    And don't put the item in a dryer.
    It's not the water that shrinks them, it's the heat.
