    Her:First Direct so they said

    Me: Do you recall that we've been moving very large amounts of money through that a/c this last few days (an a/c that normally sees 300/month)

    He: Ah - forgot (it's her sole a/c too) phone call - grovel grovel sorry sorry

    Me: All sorted dear

    Not really

    I've changed my will and disinherited the kids. I'm making other arrangements while I'm still here and when they'll benefit most. I'm in the fortunate position to do so (Toxic Elderly innit) and they are fully informed and bought in.

    Also helps with potential IHT (money is coming from the wife not me)

    I ordered a few bits on Amazon. Wifey wanted a new electric toothbrush and some wireless ear buds, I wanted a new pair of ear defenders. It's delivered, she opens the box, looks at the ear defenders and says "is that what you got me"? Ignoring the other stuff in the box she opens the ear defenders, pops them on and says "how do these work"?

    They're in a big fuck off box marked EAR DEFENDERS.

    Me: do you want some wine with lunch?

    Her: oh, I dunno

    Me: well it has to be drunk, otherwise it'll go out of date

    Her: don't be daft, wine doesn't go out of date

    Me: why does it have a best before on the label then?

    Her: does it?

    Me: yeah <picks random bottle of red> this one says 2016

    Her: I'm not drinking that, why have we still got it?

    penny drops

    Her: twat!

    Her "Are you OK"?

    Me"Yes why"

    Her "You are very quiet"

    I was reading.

    Every time I am doing something or concentrating "Are you OK"?

    20 years!!! She still asks.

    Says she cares. I recon she is just checking I am still alive. She must get terribly disappointed ��
