Wear a false beard and sunglasses and cultivate a foreign accent. It's cheaper than getting new clothes.
That'll amuse the folk who have known me for the best part of 12 years! I shall think on it...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I now have three outfits to choose from.

I'm definitely sure about the heeled boots and earrings.

How about heeled wellies, in case of wet weather?

Mine go with everything

It's over 3 hours since you wrote that. Are you still sure about the beeled hoots and earrings?

How to deal with it?

Even though a married man, still have a crush on charming Swiss secretary in a renowned company. My bad ...
Focus on the feeling that the person inspires in you, not the person him/herself.

Excitement, novelty, warmth...let these feelings fully unfold in you. Then, fully embracing those feelings and sensations, transpose them into your spouse, and find in him/her the spark that ignited your love.

It shouldn't happen, but sometimes, life's commitments and "busy-ness" make us forget to look at our longtime partners the same way we used to look at them. We need to retrain our own hearts and keep the spark alive!

Have spent the past days planning and booking a trip to Canada. The wonderful friendliness and written language of all that I've dealt with in booking wilderness trips etc. has mesmerised me into a state of being that far exceeds my originally planned budget.

Strange! All you need is a good hunting gun and a case of Molsons.

I would substitute Muskol for the gun. Most Canadians would.

I think a temporary swap would probably do the job better so you realise the grass isn't greener on the other side.... just artificial turf.

After much sampling, it transpires that the Hound will only chew her chewable worming tablet if it is liberally coated with Bingham's British Beef and Tomato spread. The plain beef one simply won't do.

Mine becomes a whingeing machine.

If the man-flu doesn't kill him, I'm afraid I might.

I'm sure your hubby will be very happy to read this. The thing with that grass though ..... if you need fertilizer for yours sometime soon feel free to start a thread.
