Grateful For... House Hubby

I flew in on my Emirates broomstick from Ireland on Wednesday.
Taught 32 very kind young souls Thursday and Friday.
(They didn't mention my excess undereye luggage once, bless em.)

I am currently nocturnal - without the sleeping in the day part.
Probably more zombie-like than owl-like, I guess.
[Yes, I do know this is a grateful post. I'm getting to that!]

This evening I came home to this :
Seafood Platter For Two & A Half, anyone?
Hoorah Hubby!
Not at all bad for someone who does. not. do. domesticated.
I have no idea how he knew where to find the platter!

Having a temporary house hubby for three days has meant that I could leave Magoo to catch some much needed morning zzzzzzzs while I headed out to work.
No need to sound the alarm and lovingly push a toddler around the house and out the door to care in the wee hours.
It has also meant a Friday night home cooked seafood platter, thank-you-very-much-if-you-don't mind.

Could you be anything but grateful?

Now that's what I call a grateful hubby - happy to see his wife home and willing to bring out the big guns [ala a seafood platter] to show it.

Hoping you have a wonderful weekend ahead,

xx Felicity

What a sweetie, he really pulled out all the stops.

And take note - they can do far more on the domestic front than we ever give them credit for. If I was you I would expect something similar every other week!! He's done it now...x

Hello there, that looks fantastic, well done that dad. Hope you have a good rest over the weekend too, always takes a while to adjust. Take it easy.

I have a house hubby all the time... well, he works from home. Makes life so much easier, and I am very grateful for it. :)
