Stay tuned to see what happens:
'Tis Midget Wrangler's birthday on Saturday, a night out for me that has been planned for some months.
Yet my husband has a gig in Scott's, as it is the opening of the upstairs venue, basically opened in their honour.
When asked to do the gig, the husband did not say 'I will check with my wife' or 'I can't do that night, could we do it the following week'. No.
Now I suspect my mother in law will not be available that night, as she goes up to babysit my nephew twice a month as his mum has gone back to work and they're stuck for a Saturday minder. I met a friend of the husband's who eagerly offered to babysit (for free!) recently, but as he no longer hangs round with her he is not comfortable with this idea. No. It would be far more comfortable for him if I sat at home and did not have my night out, while he went and played his gig. Oh yes.
He talks a lot about how much he wants me to get out, and have my own interests, and social life, and have something to tell him about the next day. Just as long as it's not on a weekend, presumably.
