Last night dh snapped at me and said "button up and b****r off" he's not spoken like this before but recently getting snappy and difficult. Another example was DS had his hand held gaming console in my bag and DH was paniking "I will have to get phone number of local police, you will get in trouble with that in a shop". I ignored ! He seems to overreact to everything. Can't tell him or he says "get off my back about everything "

I don't understand why your DH wanted to the phone number of the local police???? Did he think someone would think your DS had stolen the console or something?

Not enough info here OP. and there are worse things than "button up and bugger off".

Why did he tell you button up?
What was the pre-amble to this?
I'm not sure what to say without more background.

"Button" up?? Don't understand? Button your bag?

Also, what is wrong with having a hand held gaming console in your bag? They are made to be portable.

Maybe I am being dense, but I am not sure I understand your post.

Has he always been snappy and difficult or has something changed? Agree with others, not really enough info to even start working out what might be going on with him...

I'm lost?? What did he say? I'm tried to fathom it out??

We were chatting last night and he suddenly said "button up (shut up)and bugger off". Yes he thought shop staff would think I had stolen it, despite it having ds stickers on it. He is very uptight

Understood that part - what's making this difficult for people to understand is that we have no way of knowing if this is normal behaviour for him, if it's suddenly changed, if you've suddenly got to the point where you can't tolerate it any more...
