I feel I know you all well enough now to introduce you to Psycho Wife and Cuffbert.
These are 2 people that we don't really like staying in our house, but they often drop in un-announced. Currently they are sunning themselves in Acapulco, where Psycho Wife is trying to push poor Cuffbert off a high cliff!
Who are these people and where do they they come from? How often do they visit and will they visit you?
Well Psycho Wife is the name I give myself when I am having a major strop, or when I am feeling kind enough during a pre-strop to give OH advance warning that a major strop is brewing. I only have to say something daft like 'is that Psycho Wife coming down the road?' and he knows to walk away biting his tongue.
Cuffbert is OH's alter ego. He had a tendency to give me (to often for my taste) a 'cuff' round the head. This got changed into 'I'll give you a cuffbert if you don't pack it in'. Hence Cuffbert was born. Cuffbert pays visits when Psycho wife appears, when OH is tipsy or drink and all points in between, and generally whenever he feels like turning up.
They are not bad people, just a bit misunderstood and in wifeys case, very unwelcome as she does live up to her name!
