Wife happy with me

Ive been doing her alternator today and she was helping, and i think she relies its not easy working and making things.

So out of the blue while i was outside she moved my standing tool cupboard with a table and a chair to the back of the kitchen, put one of my welders on the tool cupboard, went and got lots of different de-greasing supplies and cloths etc .

then called me in and said from now on i can clean and make all the stuff i do in the kitchen. then said ok lets get your gearbox in and said start by cleaning and rebuilding that.

Im in shock but so happy YAY

All spares parts for 156 and 147 being sold that i will not be using (cheap) nothing too small ask what you want , willing to post world wide Phone 07922123242 Ask for Neil and say Mark said to phone .

I once flushed/backwashed a radiator in our bathtub, but I did that with following precautions:
- at 6am
- used the other bathroom (not the en-suite)
- had it cleaned up again before the better half woke up

Unless she starts reading alfaowner forums she might never find out.

Gearboxes allowed in the kitchen makes your better half:
- a keeper
- suspicious
or both

years ago , I was restoring a Suzuki gt 750 . when it came to respraying the tank and side panels as it was so cold in the garage , the wife sez do it all in the dining room ( a room seldom used at the time ) .so I did nice warm , good finish on the paint etc .

4 weeks later wifey sez I can still smell that paint , and it is looking shabby in here why don't we re decorate and have new carpet in here as well .

be nice for xmas .

so I deffo think yes there will be an ulterior motive to all this workshop in the kitchen stuff , feeling sorry for you ,n all that nonsense .

women are equally as devious as we are if not worse !!!!!
