he is not getting one in the first place. he will follow it out the door just behind it!!!or in front of it depending on what hes been like. thats my line in the sand. i can clean up anything but im not being summoned.
Age concern had to stop an ambulance coming twice because dad pressed the alarm button.

Big congratulations on the news - that will be something to look forward to in the longer term.
I am glad to hear you said No to even a hint of a bell.

thank you @Bikerbeth now ive finished the bear, im going to have to get the baby patterns out again. makes me feel old but the baby is something nice to look forward to and my husband coos over babies when no-ones looking. he has a loud enough voice to give orders, i am not going to give him an excuse to be worse

all the grandchildren call me nan or nan ny depending on their age but might be easier to have a gran for the new one. when we had kids, my mum was new nan and my nan was old nan or nanny cake.

I like the sound of Nanny Cake!

When I was a kid, I had Gran and Grandad + Nanna and Nandad to avoid confusion!

had a really nice morning sorting photographs of the family into frames with patronizing and unhelpful comments from himself telling me how top put a photo in a frame. he was up before me as he thought id called him. have to remember that one when im trying to get him out of bed. had the music on but because i was doing things, it didnt relax him as much as usual. didnt sleep very well and had a really strange dream and woke up with a headache. probably just the heat.

if anyone wants a husband, i will pay for him to go as he has totally stressed me out today, ordering, demanding, telling me what to do, making me get up and down clarifying details of appt when he is capable of doing it himself, telling me how to iron when ive been doing it since i was 8, hes argued, and an all round pain in the neck. even telling me how to hang curtains. if he could these jobs, i would tell him to get on with it but hes too breathless[not enough to stop speaking] and wobbly. my headache is finally going and its too hot. if he keeps going, i will be in my room just to get out of his way. its pulling me down again. i havent done any clearing as its too hot and ive been doing housework for the OPMH coming monday. im trying not to worry about it, his reaction to it and the rules he will lay down for me.

Jennifer1967, just wondering what would happen if you didn't obey his rules. If you told him not to tell you what to do or say. You have the patience of a saint!

when a social worker came round, he told me not to say something, when i asked why? he said because i said so. he was giving me black looks all through it and i ended up buckling, withdrawn and crying in front of her and him.
