Day care

I was reminded  of this when I read Alan's blog a week or so ago.  He was saying that his wife's 'default' activity is shopping, whereas his most definitely is not.  I'm sure that's true of a lot of marriages - and an enterprising pub in Shipley has recognised that fact.  Conveniently situated beside the Leeds-bound platform of Shipley railway station, it's ideally placed for a wife to settle her husband in the day-care centre before catching the train to the city shops. I should think it will be busy in the run up to Christmas.

  5. A good idea? . . maybe. I would sound a note of caution to any wife wishing to partake of a spot of "retail therapy" and leaving her husband at the "day care centre" . . Be aware how long you leave them for, I have been wittness to some husbands emerging from similar "day care" having benefited nought and learning nothing . . indeed in some cases loosing the power of speech and comprehension ! ! !

  8. That is why there is always a pub next to the market. However the people in your blog seem to be quite enterprising in getting the wives to pay for the neer!
