At some point during my stay in Devon I got a phone call from Husband, 'I've put my clothes in the washing machine; what do I do now?'
The problem was that I'd been away so long I couldn't remember - even when he described the front of the machine to me. I'm normally on automatic pilot when setting it and having got used to Daughter's machine over the last weeks I had no idea.
Still he managed to wash his boxers and socks but I've come home to a lorryload of dirty washing. And he hasn't made the bed once while I've been away. 'I straighten it a bit before I get in at night,' he says.
Are all men the same?
