AIBU to not understand the concept of tea in bed?

I've read many comments on this site about DHs bringing DWs tea in bed on a daily basis. Are people's lives actually like that? Every day?
Feel a bit hmm . We have to take turns.
AIB selfish to wish I experienced the joy of waking up to a cup of tea like so many of you seem to?
Or is this actually a myth and everyone has to make their own tea really?

(may be overthinking a tad)

Oooh I'd love someone to bring me a cuppa in bed on a morning.
I'd revoke my man ban if I knew I'd get that.

Just me and dd here, so no tea in bed for us. However, she attempted to do the breakfast in bed thing last Mother's day. I ended up with a toothbrush, a piece of bread covered in salt/talc, and a cup of water i'm sure she dished from the toilet. Oh, all delivered to me on a bath mat.

Put me off tea in bed for life, tbh. Especially since i had to 'eat it all up' for her.

Mon - Fri dh brings me a cuppa - drunk in bed or whilst getting ready for work
Weekends I take him one and ds (his important job bless him) is in charge.of biscuit carrying.

Works for us smile

I remember when dp and i liked each other enough to do things like that sad it was lovely. Not now though, we seem to try and spend as much time away from each other as possible.

I am o e if those annoying people who gets tea in bed every morning (been with dh for 19 yrs and believe me it's not all hearts and lowers stuff but he always does this)!

pollywollydoodle Mon 20-May-13 01:00:49

Dh brings me tea except for sat/sun mornings when he's been to the pub and has a lie in
i'm worth itwink

SwedishEdith Mon 20-May-13 01:04:14

I get one at weekends. He just gets up earlier and is making tea anyway. I never get up first...

grin @ Mumford's "breakfast" - how sweet

Kewcumber Mon 20-May-13 01:04:54

mumford - ds is now 7.5 and he brings me tea and toast in bed a couple of times a week, so it does get better!

rt01268 Mon 20-May-13 01:11:30

Yus, I do get brought tea in bed every morning, which is amazing smile The only problem is, whenever we have an argument he goes into one about it :/ So each time I tell him that I will get a kettle in my bedroom (We live in a four storey house and its far too much effort to walk downstairs lol).

purpleballoon Mon 20-May-13 01:12:38

I wouldn't be happy if DH did this, hate the idea of food/drink in the bedrooms. I don't have tea in the mornings either, it takes me ages to drink a mug as I can't drink it too hot.

He makes a hot breakfast at weekends but drags me out of bed at the ungodly hour of 10.30 to eat it at the table, like a civilised person.

Nagoo Mon 20-May-13 01:15:22

Yes mon-fri as he gets up before me. Unless he's in a rush when it will be on the kitchen work top smile

Apileofballyhoo Mon 20-May-13 01:15:51

At weekend sometimes.

Still18atheart Mon 20-May-13 01:15:59

Bit off topic but relevant

Do those tea maid machines still exist. Remember my dgps having one. It was an alarm clock which when at the right time started to boil the little kettle and like a special holder to place the cups. I think it thought it was the height of 70s gadgetry

MumfordandDaughter Mon 20-May-13 01:26:54

Thanks, Kewcumber. Only another 2 years left then of toothbrushes and toilet water.

Alas, Still18, they do... and i've just put one on my Christmas list

SomethingOnce Mon 20-May-13 01:34:51

Yes, but the milk is still an issue with tea makers (unless you take it black).

A trip to the fridge ruins it.

ClocksInALine Mon 20-May-13 01:40:15

I just made toast and tea becasue of this thread

Morloth Mon 20-May-13 01:41:06

Weekends for me, though he does get out of bed almost an hour earlier then he needs to through the week to make me a coffee to have in the car.

My DH is excellent.

ClocksInALine Mon 20-May-13 01:41:26

what about that carton milk? That is ok in tea sometimes.

DoJo Mon 20-May-13 01:44:44

I used to make my husband breakfast in bed (coffee, juice, toast) every week day for years until he went part time and didn't need to get up early any more.

RiotsNotDiets Mon 20-May-13 01:45:39

ohh mumford that is adorable!

re milk, what about those little pot/sachet thingys you get in hotel rooms? surely you can buy them in bulk somewhere?

mrsdinklage Mon 20-May-13 01:46:25

My dh does bring me tea in bed every morning, but he is a lark and I'm an owl - and he does no housework .............
so its his way of compensating for all the other stuff he doesn't do confusedsmilehmm

SomethingOnce Mon 20-May-13 01:47:47

UHT milk... pfft!

I dream of a tea maker with integral small fridge.

RiotsNotDiets Mon 20-May-13 01:52:43

The fridge would hum though. I'd never get any sleep

pollywollydoodle Mon 20-May-13 01:54:56
