Don't get me wrong, I love him and love having him around but he is on holiday this week and just messing up my routine with DD (6m)...Need him to leave me alone for a few hours!!! Feels like I have to entertain him and DD sometimes...argh!!

Ha, my DH is off work at the moment and I feel exactly the same as you! Luckily he has gone out for a few hours, but yesterday he was getting under my feet all day and trying to put DS down for his nap too early. Nice to have him around more at the moment though and I will miss it when he goes back to work. Enjoy it while your DH is around but secretly look forward to getting back to normality next week.

Why not get him to take DD out for a few hours and put your feet up. Routines were made to be broken smile

Yes, definitely get him to take the dd out for the day. Good bonding time wink

I thought I was the only one who gets irritated when dh is at home - glad to know I'm not! Even when he was on paternity leave, everyone was saying 'Arent you nervous about being by yourself with a newborn' but I couldn't wait for him to go back to work.
We drive each other mad if we're in each others' pockets for too long. I find around 18 mins is the cut- off.

Not 18 mins and 2 seconds?

I'm with you. Dh works from home quite a lot, usually in the kitchen.
We're moving house, and my top priority for the new house is a room he can use as an office! (if it doesn't have one I'm buying him a posh shed).

I would love my DH to go for a night out more often so I can eat chocolate, paint my nails and watch crap (in his opinion) films. YANBU and your reasons are far more constructive than mine!!!

I hate Bank Holidays. Hate them with a passion. And Christmas and Easter.

DC routines go loony.

An evening on one's own is lovely though.

Dh used to work away from home, for about 20 years I had my own routines, house ran like clockwork etc then he got a job which means he's home every evening. I hate itangry I'm glad he's working but it's so hard getting used to him being here.

He even wants to share my bedshock its not right I tell you!

Result...I told him to go and see the new Transformers film!! I said 'oh, we will be fine...you want to see that anyway don't you? ' with a smile and a kiss goodbye! smile Now having a cuppa whilst DD sleeps...heaven!

Oh, the new Transformers film.

<wonders if DH could be persuaded>
