Not so. He has become obsessed with making things out of wood.
Having driven the final nail in the fence on Sunday afternoon, he asked me if I would like a couple of shelves in the kitchen.
I've been asking him to put up shelves since we moved here so of course I said yes.
I now have two deep sturdy shelves built into a recess which now house my microwave oven and pots and pans, freeing up much needed work surface and cupboard space.
I didn't see Mr A at all yesterday until around 9pm. After breakfast he set off for his shed and there he remained all day, sawing, sanding and hammering. He is buıilding a picnic table for the garden. He informs me it's practically finished and the "unveiling" will take place in the morning.
His next plan is to make a shoe cupboard for the balcony...and then he tells me he is going to build a table for the kitchen.
Will this enthusiasm for carpentry ever end, I ask myself? Or will he keep going until he replaces all our furniture? Hmm...we could do with a new wardrobe.....
