How To Fit The Shelf Under The Stove

Now that sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Yeah. The excited life of a married woman. Woohoo.

But this shelf fitting episode was quite funny, and I managed to document it, and with Jacobs approval I am now sharing it with the rest of the world. Ok, with the tiny part of the world that will read this.

No way! One leg was missing. That never happens in Nepal (...)

  1. les 1 (of 2 of 3…) voor het (huwelijkse)- leven: geluk vind je in de kleinste dingen.
    ik moest trouwens op het laatst wel door m’n leesbril kijken om het geluk te zien in zijn ogen :-)

  2. Jacob blijft verbazingwekkend kalm. Ik had ergens verwacht dat het verhaal zou eindigen met een nogal warrige, uit de verte gemaakte foto van Jacob die een woest robbertje vecht met een weerloos plastic ding. (Dit zegt trouwens net zo veel over mijn huwelijk als over zijn geduld.)
