    We were due to go away in the Moho this weekend, but for various reasons it's been postponed til next weekend.
    So we have an unscheduled weekend at home, great I think, it's tipping down with rain so no gardening...result, only a small DIY job to do...result, our son requires no taxi service..result, so I'm thinking I've got a lovely weekend in which to relax then Mrs Mousy says "let's get the decorations down from the loft" :eek::eek::eek:

    So any ideas how I can put her off? She is a woman on a mission. Just thinking about the bloody Christmas lights and I'm in a cold sweat..help me..

    I can sumpathise with that - but if its a toss up between shopping and xmas decorations shopping would win everytime!!

    @bungy, believe me she needs no encouragement to shop. Sadly my foot is almost on the loft ladder, wish me luck.

    dont forget the safety line and anchor it to somewhere that folks can find it outside.

    and Take a beer or two...make a day of it up there by the time you come down you could well have missed the worst part(y)

    I've tried, she uses some twisted female logic, as we will be away next weekend it's got to be done this weekend. My case is not helped by all the f£&k wits down the road who have had their lights on for weeks.

    OR.

    This is how you achieve getting out of it Martin.

    1. You say to the lovely lady, "Dawn, if you're so keen to get the Decs down go up and get them yourself you lazy mare".

    2. She then sticks the fork in your eye, negating the need for you to do it yourself and you roll around making more of a fuss than is really necessary when one has a fork stuck in ones eye.

    3. Scream and shout, "get an ambulance you retarded lazy Mother".


    Then spend much of the time waiting in A&E, job's a good-un.

    No, no, please don't thank me, it comes natural after so many years avoiding jobs....:imoutahere:
