Only just spotted this thread. When I was ill a few years back and not able to do anything for 6 weeks. Mine did help but in really strange ways.
There was tons of washing up, so what does he do? The washing up no - he cleaned the oven and de-frosted the freezer?? Did he flick a duster round - no, he changed a light fitting? Did he run the hoover round - no, he bathed the dog?
But the icing on the cake was decorating the bedroom - while I was laid up, completely immobile - in bed? Weird - or what??
