Today is going to be a great day
not just because it is a Friday and the sun is finally out
but also because my beloved Sinus Man is planning no home repairs this afternoon
Sinus has many talents... seriously...
he is the flat pack furniture construction guru, he irons clothes like a dream,
he can sleep anywhere, can fart on cue and can't tell jokes for the life of him
which of course makes the lamest joke hilarious because he mucks it up so gloriously
Sinus also makes a bed like no one I have ever met
it is like sleeping on a cloud after he has fluffed and shaken the bejesus out of everything
and he attacks projects with all sorts of enthusiasm, which is great most of the time
but when it comes to home repairs, not so much
so on arriving home last Friday with new taps tucked under his arm and that gleam in his eye
Phantom and I were feeling a touch concerned
We heard all sorts of ominous clatters and grunts, and the dog came bolting to sit between us
closely followed by Sinus announcing he finally had the bloody things out of the packet and he was off to turn off the water... I have to say I was worried at that stage... really worried
10 mins later and a veritable symphony of mutters, squeals and scary tool type noises
Sinus declared he in fact didn't have the right tools
and hadn't been able to do anything but remove the old taps and would attack it another day
and he was off to meet the boys for their weekly drinks and gossip
There were sighs of relief from Phantom, the dog and I and we figured we had dodged a bullet
until the water was turned back on and we suddenly had old faithful in the bathroom
I tell you water was shooting straight out with quite an impressive gush
slightly scary... but impressive none the less
the water was turned off again and I was having visions of us having a rather smelly weekend
but I was assured he had it in hand... yeah right...
he waded back into the inadvertently pressure cleaned bathroom
there was a a bit of head scratching and comments about being stronger than he thought
but he eventually admitted defeat and a call for help was sent out
Luckily for all of us his mate Muz arrived with the correct tool in hand to sort it out
which meant more mutters, grunts and truly scary noises
but bless his tool wielding little heart, Muz saved the day as he always does
though he possibly undid his good work because he then spent the next ten minutes walking around the house pointing out future projects for Sinus
is the man mad.... why is he encouraging him...
Alls well that ends well I suppose and Sinus headed off to drinks with the boys
where he no doubt regaled them with tales of his home repair mastery
I do wonder if he came clean with needing the rescue from Muz
probably did though... Sinus has no shame
we are talking about the man who went for his walk this morning in his pajama shirt... seriously... he figured it was dark so why change and he was saving me doing extra washing
sort of makes sense in that male brain sort of way
but his PJ shirt... really... what would Muz say about that I wonder...
Happy Paint Party Friday all ...xx
