As a father I’m pleased that he’s at last making his way in the world and leaving home to set out anew is a big step for anyone to take.
So they’ve found a place to live, and it sounds very 70′s. They have a few things between them, or rather the girlfriend has a few things, since she’s been living away from her parents for a few years. #1 son brings nothing to the table, not even a table.
We’re going to help with the bond for the flat, but MrsPdubyah is reluctant to do more than that. Which is strange possibly because deep down she does not want him to leave the house. You’d think she’d be all for setting him up and letting him go. Proves you can be married for many many years and really not get your partner.
Anyway west down to talk about what they might need to get them into a normal life. The list went like this;
- Washing Machine
- Table and Chairs
- Knives and forks
- Chest of draws for clothes
- Electricity Account
in that order. Really yes.
Last night #1 son had an intense hour on the interwebtubes looking at the price of broadband plans.
I’m sure he’ll be right, his girlfriend will sort out his lack of ability to pick up dirty clothes and to his inability to find the kitchen sink to wash plates up. It’s a big challenge.
One thing MrsPdubyah did say to #1 Son was that because they didn’t have a washing machine that he’d be fine to drop off his dirty laundry to home and she’d be happy to wash it and drop it back to him. WTF seriously!
