Mr Him Flops all over the bedroom

Last week Mr Him had plans, inadquate plans but plans none the less.  Once I found out his plans I completed them for him, I made them well rounded and ensured that there were no gaps, no weakness!  I have a knack for rearranging his plans, so he tells me regularly which reassures me that its appreciated.  I have found from experience that his plans lack a certain je ne sais quoi, lets call it refinement. 

The need  for me to put the finishing touches to his plan  this time was that he declared to me that he had booked himself a weeks annual leave to veg' at home, without me.  Just 'flop' were his words.  Now at this time of year dear reader, we, he, we decorate, at least one room. Its like the San Francisco bridge, never done. He knows this.  He, we have decorated a room or two around Easter time for the last 3 years.  So realising that he had made an error in his plan I simply told him that we would just need to tweek a word's meaning rather than redraw the complete plan.  So to his benefit the word flop became synonymous with  paint our bedroom. A simple modification that made his plan a more rounded one, don't you agree!   I must admit it was admirable how well he adapted to this more wholesome meaning of flop so it was clearly his intention all along but he didn't quite know how to put it into words.  Thank goodness he has me. 

For the four work days last week he flopped on the ceiling, he flopped on the skirting boards, he flopped on the walls and  flopped on  the windowsill. There was  not a surface in our room that he did not flop on.  He can honestly go to work tomorrow saying that  well and truly flopped during his vacation.


To keep him company I booked  a decorator to flop with him.  The decorator was to flop on the walls of our sixteen year olds old bedroom.  She’s moving to a bigger room and I am using her old room as a guest room and base for the young on line shopping genius. The decorator flopped on the walls in Ditzy flowers in pink. 



The sixteen year old has now decided she needs to flop.  She will flop in her new room.  She has chosen a  feature wall in paper and the remaining walls in cream paint.  I think she will be flopping for weeks, but nothing new there. 


I have to say the Mr Him has been so taken with flopping that he went on to power hose the patio on Saturday which put a smile on its face.




The finished result. 


What did Mr Him wear to flop.


Yes, shorts, this is his form of payback.

  3. Goodness, we are master floppers. My hubbys is flopping all over the house replacing 20 yr old cream carpet (that looks brown) with beautiful bamboo flooring. Its a lot of expensive flopping materials, i can tell you. Its beautiful here and there but overall a big mess. What else is the Easter break for? Holidays? Huh!

    1. Imagine the cost of getting floppers in though. They save us money in the long run with their flopping.

  5. Beware! Flopping can lead to a sprained knee :( Perhaps next time he would fancy a holiday in Cornwall and flop my walls :)
