The school fete can fuck the fuck off

DH is Mr School Fete this year apparently. He's organising 95% of it which apparently means I have to now make 50 mini pizzas.

I've just had a bottle of wine and a Thai meal. All I'm fit for is some sofa and TV.

I've worked 60 hours this week, my feet hurt and I am a little bit drunk

School fete can fuck the fuck off.

Tell him to make pizza!!!

AcrylicPlexiglass Fri 20-Sep-13 20:57:33

I think it's your dh who needs to ftfo, surely? He can make the mini pizzas, if that's what he agreed. He sounds like a twatweevil who should be relegated to the doghouse forthwith.

Few big pizzas and some biscuit cutters - job done. Time for wine

foslady Fri 20-Sep-13 20:58:29

9 mini pizza for £2 at iceland.....bung a sprinkling of extra cheese on and no one'll know the difference.......

Chottie Fri 20-Sep-13 20:58:33

Couldn't you just buy some large ones and donate a pizza wheel so Mr School Fete can just cut them up?

littlewhitebag Fri 20-Sep-13 20:59:56

I agree. Tell DH to fuck the fuck off...then fuck off some more. Then breathe........

DO NOT make any pizza's.

ClaraOswald Fri 20-Sep-13 21:00:34

He volunteered his services or yours?

If he is organising it HE now has 50 mini pizzas to make.

UnexpectedItemInShaggingArea Fri 20-Sep-13 21:03:00

Iceland. Genius idea.

He is a soft touch. Volunteered for x and got lumbered with x,y and z.

The sofa is my domain tonight, not the kitchen smile

AcrylicPlexiglass Fri 20-Sep-13 21:09:08

He's not a soft touch! He just thinks you are a soft touch. He didn't get lumbered, remember- he volunteered you to get lumbered!

Agree that sending him to Iceland is a genius idea. Just make sure he goes, not you!

Acrylic LOVE twatweevil! grin

Oh and when he goes to Iceland to get the pizza, tell him to bring you back some more wine !

Fetes are in the summer!

Stop belly aching you've got plenty of time.

Use English muffuns though, if you do relent.

Is it tomorrow?

UnexpectedItemInShaggingArea Fri 20-Sep-13 22:03:27

Acrylic, those PTA floozies just fluttered their eyeballs at him and he agreed to everything.

The car has been out of action for a week, full of tombola shite. I've been taking the bus for the last five days for the good of the fete.

He's downstairs now, working out the rules for the "win a barrel of beer by throwing something somewhere" game.

Apparently I am not getting into the spirit of it. I'm sorry, unless the spirit is gin, I'm not getting into it tonight <my first ever gavel>.

UnexpectedItemInShaggingArea Fri 20-Sep-13 22:05:10

our fete is apparently always in September. Summer fetes are so common dontcha know!

Yes, it's tomorrow. I will relent and get up early to go to Iceland bake pizzas.

UnexpectedItemInShaggingArea Fri 20-Sep-13 22:09:22

BTW if you google Twatweevil, 7 of the first 10 results are from Mumsnet. Acrylic, have you contributed a word to the OED?

PresidentServalan Fri 20-Sep-13 23:00:29

Do we have to pay a royalty to Acrylic for using it?

And I didn't google it for the simple reason that I have googled MN terms before... Still haven't recovered from trypopophobia some of those experiences grin

NoComet Fri 20-Sep-13 23:05:27

YANBU
We have the opposite problem in our house. I have to try very hard not to volunteer DH for PTA stuff or I get "the school fair can Fuck off!"

Except he doesn't swear, it would be better if he did. He just grumps.

Mydelilah Fri 20-Sep-13 23:07:23

My eyes! Couldn't stop myself from googling trypophobia. (Shudder)

PoppyWearer Fri 20-Sep-13 23:07:54

Twatweevil is an amazing new insult. thanks

PresidentServalan Fri 20-Sep-13 23:17:14

Mydelilah You see, you forgot the first rule of MN - NEVER GOOGLE!!!

I now feel really awful if you googled it from my post!

flowers and wine for you....

PresidentServalan Fri 20-Sep-13 23:19:00

I think Acrylic is awesome on the basis of Twatweevil ! I can't wait to try it out in RL!

I'm up because I have a stinking cold and can't sleep. And I think Twatweevil is an awesome word.

Agree with Iceland and mini pizzas. DP knows never to volunteer me for things, just as I wouldn't volunteer him. I can do my own volunteering, thank you very much.

Fuck it I've caved. 9 down and 41 of the little fuckers left still to do.
