To be annoyed DH wants me home early to cook for him?

DH doesn't normally go in to work until 8.15pm, unless he does overtime, and lately, he's been perfectly happy to cook for himself before he goes.

He went up to bed earlier and asked me to wake him up at 4pm, i told him i was going to my moms for the afternoon (which i am) and that i might not be here, so to set his alarm.

He replied "Well i hope you are here or i won't get anything to eat before i go to work."

Eh? has he suddenly become incapable of cooking? He knows if i go to moms i'm rarely back before 6pm, he's never needed me home before, why now? Has the fact we've ticked over into a new year suddenly rendered him incapable of feeding himself without me being here?

maybe he feels peed off that e has to work tonight while you enjoy yourself at your mum's?

did you ask him why he couldn't do it himself?

how hard is it to pop it with a fork and wait for the ding?

Its because we've planned spaghetti bolognese.. but when we did that, we didn't know he'd be going in early.

usually i'd get back about 6ish and put it on straight away while he showers. but he has cooked this before going in early before.

I dont see why i should change my plans just because he wants to do a couple of hours overtime.

Can you compromise? Haven't you got a slow cooker? Then it will be cooking while your out, he can help himself and theres still some left for you when you get home.

i just cooked it, lol, he can re-heat it when he gets up in a couple of hours.

now i have to go get DS dressed and get my butt moving else its not worth going out!
