On working with my boyfriend

The DB has an order for 10 glass things due 2 at a time over the next couple of months. The first 2 are due next week. He didn’t want to leave it to the last minute, but it’s a 2-person job and the guy who usually helps him was away last week and doesn’t get back until tomorrow. We’re off for a long weekend from Wednesday, and he’s working elsewhere on Monday which doesn’t help much. We discussed his [nonexistent] options and I offered to help him instead.

The guy who usually helps said I wouldn’t be able to do it, but I don’t like believing disbelievers unless they have proof, and besides, there wasn’t any realistic alternative so we both went into work today and I helped him.

3 1/2 hours later we were done. The 2 glass things were finished and in the oven to de-stress.

Apart from it being horrendously loud, incredibly hot, and a little bit smelly, it wasn’t very difficult.

Ok, so it took quite a bit of concentration, and I had to lie down once we got home and I’d taken the dog for a walk and fed the DB’s parents’ fish, but it’s still not something I’d avoid doing again. There are another 8 to make, and the DB says I can help him do them too. 🙂 *proud* The best part is that they’re sellable, despite me not having practised first. I can’t wait to hear what the usual helper has to say about them!

I’d love to add a photo of the finished things, but I’m not allowed. I can’t tell you what they are either, or how they’re made, because it’s all top secret. Sorry 🙁

  1. Aaaahh…after all that build up I was sure I was going to hear about these intriguing Glass things”.
    I thought you must be going to ehlp him put windows in! Good luck with the next eight!

  2. Woo Hoo! There is nothing better than success when none is expected. Awesome! Bonus, too, hearing your boyfriend tell you there are more to come and he would gladly accept your help.

    Hugs – Leslie
