It's Grumpy's Birthday!

It's Grumpy's birthday today!  And he has spent the day being a miserable old sod too.  We went food shopping together and he has snapped and sniped at me the whole day as if it's entirely my fault that he's now a year older at 67.  It wouldn't be so bad but I reached the same milestone in November 2016 and took it on the chin.  Good grief, he has had some lovely cards, a new case for his i-pad, a couple of bottles of his favourite beer and two very respectable gift cards totalling £30.  To cap it all the post contained a cheque for £25...a win on the premium bonds!  The only time he cheered up was when I dropped him off at the village pub for an hour, then collected him in the car as it was pouring with rain.  He has had his favourite meal of steak and chips and a bottle of red wine too ( that's £8 out of the week's budget, not that I mentioned that fact to him :)  If he's not careful he won't have to worry about reaching 68 ://

Anyhow, I am preparing a food plan for this week and will let you know how much I spent in tomorrow's post ....

Stay safe everyone x

  2. LOL, my hubby was the same when he reached 50 last year. He sulked and moaned about it so much,for ages beforehand, we had a row over it. I told him that I'd make sure he didn't get to 50 if he kept on! He went very quiet from then until after the day. Men!!!

  5. Perhaps you could suggest cancelling that date next year, no cards, no pressies and no steak and wine.You could always have an unbirthday celebration.

  6. My hubby is 67, and he's a happy chappie. I would lock yours in an empty room for the day and let him get on with himself!
