“Our” House

As I mentioned previously we bought our first home this year, I say our but as I am sure any of you men out there who cohabit with a female know what I really mean is that we bought Wife’s first home this year.

Regardless of if your name is on the lease or the mortgage when it really comes down to it, its her place and she just lets you stay over. The shades of paint, the design of the furniture and placement of all of your stuff is her choice and hers alone. I mean she will ask your opinion whilst you stand in DFS or Ikea but if it differs from what she thought it will be quickly discarded.

That being said there is generally at least one part of the house that she will (kinda) graciously hand over to you. The size of this space will depend on the size of your property, how long you have been together and most importantly how much she needs that walk in shoe closet,

It starts with the “Man Drawer”, this exists in even the smallest of households,  I could explain this, but to be honest Michael McIntyre does it way better than I ever could.

Following this is the “Man Cave” this could be a spare room, the Shed, a loft extension or as it is in my case a simple cupboard. Its larger than the average cupboard to be honest, I should be pretty happy with it but I was kinda banking on the second bedroom. I tried to convince Wife that we could give Joseph the cupboard as a bedroom and tell him he was a Wizard, but apparently that didn’t wash.

Anyways the reason that I bought this up at all was that this weekend I was tasked with hanging some pictures, we got a lovely piece celebrating our moving into to our new house and also the birth of our son but also I was given permission to take a couple of things out of the “Man Cupboard” and hang them in the house.
