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.

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!
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.

True. The "honey" would be very annoying.

My new garage told me to use the brakes more as they had to get rust off them. How to change a decade long habit?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The cafeteria of a company I am visiting only has sushi rolls with white rice (not brown rice).

But they have someone making freshly-squeezed juices.

1:1, ball in the middle.

Somehow today I managed to lose my right glove and my left ear bud for my headphones.

The most amazing gluten-free and not-too-sweet moist, crumbly topped apple cake, I bought on the off-chance, is finished.
