Hubbie is feeling stressed, the
house is slowly and surely driving him to exhaustion. It would be okay if we had unlimited funds we could get someone
in to project manage it and make it beautiful again; you could offer the
tradesmen bonuses for completing on time (as an extra incentive to actually get
them to come when they say they will!).
But it’s down to hubbie and me to arrange workmen and sadly do as much
of the work as we can on an extremely tight budget (minus any tempting bonus!).
|Not quite the stripping he had in mind!|
We knew what we had ahead of us
but it does not stop it feeling slightly overwhelming at times, we keep trying
to focus on the positives and little rays of sunshine, the reasons we fell in
love with the building in the first place.
Years ago hubbie would have lit a
cigarette to wash away his tensions but those days are gone. I can see him itching for a packet though; I
do not want him starting the habit again.
But I can hardly pin his arms behind his back and lock away from all
temptation! If he is going to have a sneaky
puff then I would rather he tried using ecigs
if he has to have something.
Least then it’s not so bad in
terms of his health! He will feel
calmer and not have to deal with the very serious consequences of burning tobacco/chemicals. Ideally he would just handle his stress with
lots of cake, tea and chocolate like me (although I probably need to worry
about my cholesterol levels!). But if
not then he can benefit from a handy 15% off his total order at the E-cig Store (along with all my
fellow readers) with the code reallymissingsleep to get his fix more cheaply!
One of my least favourite things
about smoking is the smell, so for one thing least he will not be whiffy as
ecigs are odourless fortunately! I used
to hate nights out before they banned smoking cigarettes in pubs it was a
nuisance having to wash everything and shower myself straight away so I could
rid myself of the ashtray odour…
Have any of you already converted to ecigs?
