It was my niece’s birthday today which she celebrated by having a picnic at a local park with all of her family and friends. Tom refused to come. He said he wasn’t prepared to go and be judged by my family after what happened with Josh, especially as he feels that he was goaded into it. As he was staying home, I asked him if he would take the washing out and hang it on the line and then put another load on, to which he replied, “What?! You want me to do all your jobs as well as go out to work. No, I bloody won’t.” And he didn’t.
