Our new lodger moved in last night. So far he has tidied up, offered to cook a shepherd's pie, and he and dh are looking forward to a night of footie after gleefully discussing the Allerdyce sacking.

I feel surplus to requirements! Would I be unreasonable to steal DH's Xmas bonus and go on holiday? How long would it be before they notice I have gone? grin When the freezer, beer and bin bags have run out maybe?

Don't worry, he's probably a serial killer.

See? I knew I could make you feel better.

Sack your DH...

Personally, I'd enjoy being surplus to requirements for a while. Sounds like bliss.

I'm sure there are some aspects of life with DH that the lodger can't fulfill wink. Either that, or you really are in trouble.

I see a Pacific Heights scenario unfolding.

He's just come downstairs to ask if I need a toilet roll holder hmm. He is paying real money too!

I will be kicked of PC shortly as we are abroad and Man U / Arsenal not on foreign tv! I have my iPod touch, so will make myself comfy on the sofa.

Do you reckon you can get the lodger to babysit, you know, if he's not doing anything (other than cooking my dinner)? This is a close friend by the way, as opposed to complete stranger.....

'I see a Pacific Heights scenario unfolding.'

Yeah - I wouldn't lend him any of your electrical tools grin

He asked for an allen key earlier to reassemble his Ikea bed! Should I lock my bedroom door?
