Bloody hell that's a bit late, what time did he start?

Do it your bloody self then

Is there a reason you don't do it yourself if he never does it at a reasonable hour?

I would have sent them to bed after some other food and planned to give them leftovers tomorrow. Yes we need to know start time.

My DH is like this. A brilliant cook, but is rubbish at cooking to a schedule, so what we do now is that he asks, 'what time do you want to eat,' and he tries to work backwards from this. Most of the time, it's late, like an hour or so.

The alternatives are that he cooks a Sunday lunch when an hour or so doesn't really matter, or he does something less complicated like bangers and mash or fish fingers.

What I tend to do on the days the DCs have sports, is to make a pasta bake or something that can be made in advance and microwaved.

Erm, am I missing the point?

Why didn't you do the dinner then? If you want it earlier, do it yourself!

Either do it yourself, or at least start cooking it at a reasonable time and then let him do the rest.

I'd have made a sandwich and sent them to bed. YANBU.

Can't you give them something else and reheat it all tomorrow?

DH decided he wasn't hungry so wasn't cooking at 5.30 hmm this left me no time to eat until now (bathed, fed and put DS to bed first) I was very hungry!

FIL is the same. 'Dinner will be at 4pm' he says. Rarely is it done before 6pm.

kinkyfuckery Sun 28-Apr-13 21:01:19

He didn't put dinner on until 4.45?? What time did he plan on it being ready for?

I am married to someone who doesn't understand the passage of time as well!

He sounds like a scatterbrain. I bet he's a rocket scientist or a serious intellectual.

Is that late? Really, is 8pm considered late for a week-end dinnertime? We usually eat around then, often later. I couldn't even imagine eating dinner before 7pm.

No idea how it took so long though.
