    Despite being a renaissance, caring sharing husband who has mastered the intricacies of the washing machine ( quickwash at 30deg), the cooker (pasta a speciality) and many other chores about the house we still have a few demarcation zones.
    I don't sew
    She doesn't clean her bike
    I don't defrost the freezer
    She doesn't wire plugs

    Are you all things to all women (or vice-versa)?

    My husband is all things to me, but he'd better not be all things to all women! That's grounds for divorce! xx(

    Its all about focus.

    When we have been for a walk, she sees tired hungry kids, I see messy boots and gaiters.
    When we have been decorating, she sees hoovering and re-arranging furniture, I see dirty brushes
    If we have been "at it" I see sleep beckoning, and she sees the ceiling needs painting:blush:

    She never shes the bloody bins on a wednesday morning though:sad:

    Neither of us iron, we wear wrinkly clothes.

    I reckon I let the cat in more often.

    Ms.P doesn't wire plugs. I do that stuff. I don't clean her bike, neither does she.

    Mr radger doesn't make the bed.
    Or take the recycling or rubbish downstairs.
    Or change the toilet roll, rather just start a new one when there's 3 goes' worth still on the holder
    He always does the hoovering though, apparently I am too slapdash. And he does more ironing than me, but then I only iron stuff if I'm going to sew it.

    I iron my own stuff, but the missus does all the other ironing.

    I wash the cars, mow grass, bins, tend/water garden, clean cat litter box xx(

    She plants the flowers/plants, sews (a hobby just as bad and expensive as mine, but much more messy)...

    Most other jobs we share

    Wire the plugs??

    That's like saying she doesn't fill the coal scuttle.

    Now, the coal scuttle could be a real bone of contention in this house xx(

    I usually put the bins out.
