    It's my birthday today. OH declared I was to stay out of the kitchen all day.

    So, he wanted to make his own omelette for lunch.

    But he did not remember how to make an omelette, what pan, what ingredients etc

    So.... I stood by him, and told him step by step how to make his omelette, which took longer and was more messy than if I had made it... but the intent was there with him..... and I was pleased.

    Yes, the intent was there and that is the most important thing.

    Aaaahhh, at least he tried, mine wouldn't remember or have a clue what to do about it if he did! Happy Birthday. How did you get on with the TV programme you were appearing on?

    Happy Birthday.

    I'm pleased for you that you could appreciate his effort. Sometimes we lose ourselves in this to not see them for who they are underneath.
