The Hubby Meme....

The Hubby Meme - I pinched borrowed this from Skittles.

How long did you date? Initially for 6 months (aged 14/15) then we split for 8 years and have been together ever since.

How old is he? He's 13 months older than me.

Who eats more? Me definitely, I'm a pig

Who said “I love you” first? I think he did. I was only 14 and quite shy.

Who is taller? He is by 2" (he said!)

Who sings better? Oh definitely me, he's tone deaf!

Who is smarter? He's a mine of information, great on general knowledge, but I know lots of things he doesn't and regularly amaze him.

Whose temper is worse? Mine, I lose it easily.

Who does the laundry? He does since he retired.

Who does the dishes? He does, he's better at stacking the dishwasher and I think he likes washing up.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? The right side as we lay in it would be me.

Who pays the bills? We each pay different ones, but he pays most.

Who cooks dinner? Me. But he can cook and makes the best Yorkshire Puddings in the world - but then I taught him how.

Who drives when you are together? He does unless he intends having a drink then I drive but don't drink of course.

Who is more stubborn? He is and very set in his ways.

Who asked who out first? He asked me out. I had visited his house with his cousin (my friend) and he told me later he couldn't get me out of his mind.

Who kissed who first? He kissed me.

Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Me, he's never wrong (or so he says)

Whose parents do you see the most? We see them all every Saturday.

Who proposed? It was just understood it would happen, once his divorce came through - it's a long story.

Who is more sensitive? Me.

Who has more friends? We have mutual friends and I have work friends.

Who has more siblings? I have two brothers he's an only child.

Who wears the pants in the family? He's the boss and he has my permission to say so. ;)

Obviously because I pinched borrowed this I'm not going to tag anyone but if you'd like to have a go let me know in the comments so I can come round to your place and read the gossip.

buffalodickdy said...

Dianne said...

I love that hubby has your permission to say he's in charge - that's perfect.

I would "pinch" this to do myself but first I need to pinch a husband ;)

Akelamalu said...

I've missed you Miss U, be over later to read yours. :)

Aw thanks Flowerpot x

Cheers Buiff :)

Oh I'll look forward to reading yours CG

We've got them well trained haven't we Bee? ;)

LOL don't get one just so you can do this meme Dianne, make one up! ;)

Can I just say that it is nice to read about somebody who met their husband so young. I often wonder if The Boyfriend and I will last because we were so young... you are a case in point (even if there was a slight musical interlude of eight years!)


mrsnesbitt said...

Loved this, will definately use this at some point.
Wednesday may be a good day!

Julia Smith said...

I love this, too - I'll pinch it meself...probably won't show up for a bit, though, as I've got a few memes parked in the garage. But I'll let you know when I do.

I love the fact that he's taller than you by 2".

Jo Beaufoix said...

Ahhhh, very cute. :D

Claire said...

Oh he sounds lovely! I bet you two do well in a Mr and Mrs competition :)

I enjoyed learning more about you & your ‘hubby’ from this meme and am ‘relieved’ to find another meme I won’t have to add to my list since I’m no longer married. Hope you’re having a marvelous Monday!
Hugs and blessings,

Travis said...

He sounds like a great guy, and I can tell from your stories that you are very happy!

And your music is terrific!

Skittles said...

I "said" Mike was the boss, too. ;)

James Goodman-Horror Writer said...

That was a great meme. It's always fun to learn more about people. :D

Akelamalu said...

Ah yes the interlude GIM, it hurt at the time but we both agree that it made us realise just how much we cared about it each when we got back together.

I look forward to reading yours Mrs Nesbitt. :)

MWM said 2" I'm not sure it's that much Julia!

Thanks Jo x

Mother of Invention said...


He sounds like an amazing match and an interesting love story!

Claire said...

You should test him then :)

Akelamalu said...

LOL I don't think he could cope with two wives MOI!

Mmmm I could Claire if he'll play! ;)

Misty Dawn said...

What a surprise - I thought my Hubs was the only one who was never-ever wrong!

Mimi Lenox said...

"He's the boss and he has my permission to say so"

As it should be!

Nea said...

A nice bit of information. :):) I love reading tags, but won't do one. I did one once, but decided not to do anymore. They are hard for me to do........and take way to much time, time spent thinking, hurts me brains. haha
