I've just perpetuated an unbreakable, hidious cycle.
Friday was 37.9 degrees C. First day of summer weather really. Saturday, prior to taking Yu-Jin to a taekwondo lesson a week before it started (thank you Miky), I cleaned the air conditioner. Got up on the roof, pulled off the covers, dodged the spiders, brought the covers down and put detergent on them, sprayed them with the hose, cleaned the air conditioning unit (want to avoid Legionnaires disease), reassembled the covers and kicked it in the guts - started it, for those of you who don't speak Strine.
Sunday we went for a walk and I got Yu-Jin to climb his first tree by himself. Following a thirty minutes free golf lesson that took one hour and fifteen minutes, which I had won using my business card in a competition, at Whaleback Golf Course with pro Mike Keneally, Yu-Jin and I purchased more plasterboard at Bunnings and some board to make battens and hooks so that I could install some venetian blinds. The blinds themselves have been sitting in the sewing room for 12 months awaiting installation. Look alright too.
Why am I so stupide? My wife nagged me to clean the air conditioner and install the blinds. Now that I have reacted to the nagging and done what was required she'll be more likely to try nagging to get what she wants. I've shown that nagging is effective.
I apologise to husbandkind for my stupidity.
