We have to go away on Wednesday for a week so the plumber can pull up our floorboards and completely replace our heating system. There's a great deal to do before this can happen as the house is in chaos.

He's in the garden smoking eels.

Yesterday we had some friends round from London who we hadn't seen for ages. I cleaned the house and made a cake.

Just when the house was begining to smell fresher he started a fire in the garden in order to smoke eels. I told him I wasn't having it. (I'm vegetarian and so were two of the three visitors.) So he stopped.

I thought we'd be together today sorting the house out. There's so much to do, but he's gone off in the garden to smoke fucking eels again.

Thing is, I don't think he should bring them home in the first place. He's an angler. He caught them. They've been in my fridge and freezer.

I'm very tolerant of meat in the fridge which he cooks for the kids ... but for me this is too much.

He says it's no different from buying a chicken and putting it in the fridge but I just feel this is taking it too far. It's like he's rubbing my nose in it.

AIBU?

Thanks TT.

My dd wants to be vegan. She's been veggie for a year or so. (she's 9). Any advice?

I'm very impressed with Spiderdad.Did he make the smoker himself?

The only thing I've caught & killed myself are American crayfish,which are nasty,evil things.I've trained the dd's to catch them too.

I'm also impressed by .Falcon.How cool is having your own bird of prey envy

Oh dear, i feel that bringing them home and doing this in back garden, when there is NO NEED FOR IT, is deffo rubbing your nose in it...i am veggie and I think i would feel he was taking the piss.

If he likes smoked eels so much go and buy them like normal people...although, eels, ew what a thought.
