A close friend of mine has enjoyed a long and no doubt fruitful bachelorhood but now, at the age of 41, a lady has finally moved into his house this week.
Last night I asked him via text how it was going. The reply was priceless:
"Very well. We need Sky Multi-Room though."
This made me howl. No more than 48 hours since she moved in and already he appears to be banned from watching Match Of The Day in his own living room.
Today, according to his morning Twitter update, he is going to do the big shop with her.
That really is a sobering experience when you're part of a couple. It's still the one thing I'd happily never, ever, ever, ever, ever do again.
You're never too old to learn...
