Do I own up?

Recommended Posts

There is an annoying tapping noise that is really bothering hubby. I just remembered+that I left a trowel, scoop and rake hanging on hooks on the side of the house when I cleaned the chickens out.  The wind is getting up and making them tap.  Do I own uo and get dressed after midnight to put them away or wait till morning, get up before him to let the chickens out, make the problem disappear, and act dumb? 🤔 my conscience is bothering me but i’m snug in bed.  It’s a dilemma

Probably too late now but I would have owned up so that he wasn't worried about the house but said that I wasn't going to go outside because of burglars or serial killers. In all the films and TV programmes I watch it's apparently the man's duty to be attacked first. I'm not inclined to argue with that.

Good on you for tidying up when it was so cold. I hate irritating noises.

Our aerial used to vibrate through the house when the wind was in the wrong direction. Hubby of course couldn't hear it, ever, and it it used to sound like a tuning fork vibrating through the walls. After a good few years hubby finally heard it but told me it wasn't the aerial but something else. It was such an annoying noise and it drove me mad until finally we had a new aerial fitted. Noise gone !!

I loved her on Blue Peter but she's possibly not the right presenter for Most Haunted as she seems to panic at every little sound.....a more no nonsense approach would make for more balanced viewing.....Ann Widecombe ?

I'm afraid I struggle to watch anything with that woman involved. That being said, I don't watch Most Haunted, so it makes no odds to me if she becomes a presenter.

My husband never heard anything at night - even my daughter said she remembered me going downstairs armed with something (loft ladder stick) to whack any burglars.  Sometimes I never found anything.  Scariest thing was waking up to a thud in the bathroom (when my children were young I slept with one ear open, I think) looked in there to see 2 eyes glowing from the dark.  Well that's enough to wake anyone up properly!  It was a neighbour's cat jumping in through the window.  Oh Freddie!!!!  So he meowed and marched downstairs with me in tow.  Got to the back door and meeeeoooowww want out!  :roll: Yes I still want my own cat!  And since my daughter mentioned the stick incident over Christmas, my husband owned up and said he did hear but hoped I went instead.  He also heard the children when they had bad dreams or whatever, but didn't want to get up on numerous occasions until I shoved him and told him it was his turn!

As for Yvette's husband, he'd have probably chucked a stone in the general direction and flipped one back behind him, hitting hubby on the head.  It's soooo fake, that programme!  Not watched it for years since hubby's cousin came over on a Halloween night and we laughed ourselves silly!
