    Conversely she always encouraged me to go diving and take my son.
    Diving was safe, cheap father-son fun.
    Unfortunately, the 17 year old lad I referred to, who crashed at Donnington has now had both his legs amputated.

    Diving is head-space time. With it, I'm a MUCH nicer person. Mrs Me recognises this and mostly lets me go and play.

    interesting discussion with her indoors last night.

    I asked if i could go diving - no was the answer. then I looked at calendar and reminded her she was doing stuff in NWales that weekend with the kids so what was i supposed to do , sit at home on my own drinking beer. ( another pet hate of hers now)
    i decided that i would be doing three weekends on the trot and fark it . whats the worst thats gonna happen

    You suddenly have a LOT more time (and a LOT less money) to go diving...?

    Is it the right time for me to gloat about being single?

    I must be lucky. SWMBO has never complained about me diving. I have taken her away a few times on trips just so she can see the scenery while we are out on the boats so I get brownie points for that too
    Rememeber anything you read on the internet was probably written by some guy sitting at home in his underpants! Including this !!

    Mini-me has just announced that she is coming to not-dive with me tomorrow rather than stay at home with Mrs-me.

    The pair of us are getting the mega-silent grump treatment.


    @steelmonkey - don't gloat!
