    In that case my next husband needs to be -
    A plumber - my shower's broken and I need a new bathroom suite installing, tiling etc.
    Then I'll marry...
    An electrician - house rewire

    But hang on a min - cost of solicitor £3500 (approx)
    Payment to ex husband in region of £30 000

    maybe I'll just save up and employ someone LOL;)

    Perhaps we could get together with friends and ensure we all marry a 'useful man' then we could swap!!

    Yepsort of thing my hubby would do!!:rotfl:

    TPAx

    Hubs did this and when the cloth that goes on the end of the thing stopped working, I told him to rinse it and very wearily and tiredly got out the mop & bucket.

    Please don't marry a sparky !!!!

    Mine DH used to be one, every time it rained the blasted door bell rang, in my case due to being hearing impaired, my 'buzzer' kept going off, at all times of the night !!!.

    Maybe that's why he USED to be one - :rotfl:
    :D Opinions are like bottom holes, we all have one :D
