Sticky Wicket HNT

Not much to say here.
Illogically placed.
Me not paying attention.
Recreated here for your ridicule and pleasure.
You're welcome.

1950′s Homemaking tips — a crash course
Have dinner ready: Plan ahead even the night before to have a delicious meal on time. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospects of a good meal are part of the warm welcome needed.
Prepare yourself: Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your makeup, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh looking. He has just been with a lot of work-wary people. Be a little gay and a little more interesting. His boring day may need a lift.
Clear away the clutter: Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives, gathering up school books, toys, paper, etc. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift, too.
Prepare the children: Take a few minutes to wash the children’s hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair, and if necessary, change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part.
Minimize all noise: At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of washer, dryer, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quite. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and be glad to see him. Some don’ts: Don’t greet him with problems or complaints. Don’t complain if he’s late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with what he might have gone through that day.
Make him comfortable: Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soft soothing and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax-unwind.

Listen to him:
You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first.
Make the evening his: Never complain if he does not take you out to dinner or to other places of entertainment. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure, his need to be home and relax.
The goal: Try to make your home a place of peace and order where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.

Come back Thursday afternoon to find out who our contemporary 50s couple might be!
Our MG couple are those sexy Aussies, Jas and JM. Go check out each of their blogs and say hi!!

We've got a pretty good crew over at "...the Other HNT" again this week. A little bit of something for everyone!
Theme Alert! - I don't think we've had a theme since the Christmas themes. My bad! So this one's going to be a little different. It's going to be "Post-it®" HNT on October 6th. What does that mean? Use one (or as many as you like) Post-it® notes in your HNT for that week. Use any of the available colors. Use them to hide a tattoo. Or to label a scar. Or to frame your belly button. You can write a message (even directed to an individual!) on one and stick it on you. Or draw a picture on it. Or use one of those custom shaped ones. It's really up to your imagination. And if your private parts tingle when walking into an office supply store, feel free to use other office supplies as well (but don't forget the Post-it® note(s)!).

It just now dawns on me that this might be a US-only product... Is there something similar outside of the US? Email me if you have questions. Post the theme alert on your own sites. Have fun with it!
The first symphony concert of the season is this weekend. Fairly easy concert--Barber, Rachmaninoff & Elgar, if you're interested. Won't be around much after tomorrow, so carry on without me!

JM said...

I love the theme idea! The mind os already coming up with potential sceanrios. There should be more themes I reckon! One per month perhaps?

I hope there weren't any flies attached to the fly paper when you stuck to it!

I'm UP delivering an out of body experience to my lover!

The ridicule and pleasure are much appreciated. I'm up.

Joanna Cake said...

LOL, you're alright, Post It Notes have made it across the pond :P

Flypaper, however, I have not seen before. Ugh!

Love the mystery guest shot - one of the things I used to dream of when I was a housewife was doing the washing up and having a man slide his arms around me :)

Im Up - with a question!

Elle said...

Thanks for making me smile first thing in the morning, Os :)

Wonderful mystery guests, interesting theme... A good start to the day indeed.

I'm up. Been up there since last night but I crashed before I could post here ;)

Cheeky Minx said...

My, my, you wear that flypaper so well!

And before I go any further, your seriously sexy MG couple has me longing to go back in time. Mrs Cheeky Minx Cleaver has a rather nice ring, no?

Thanks for the upping... xx

(Post It Notes? Really? I think I may be stumped...)

The MG is such a turnon damn! I'm loving the post it idea my mind is working away ... I'm up. Thought I'd commented last night but I've been crazy tired from work sorry .. I'm in the game this week at

HyperSexualGirl said...

I didn't even know flypaper was still made. I remember my grandparents had it in their attic, where it had hung for years and was completely dried and stiff.

And I'm up!

I've seen this list of 1950s homemaking tips before. Life (and our perception of men's and women's roles) was certainly different then.

We are up at Married In Ohio with California Girl in a classic pose.

Lusting Lola said...

I love that comtemporary 50s couple. They are HOT. :)

Oops on the flypaper. Thanks for the selfless re-creation. lol.

I'm up with more scavenger hunting.

Happy #HNT! <3

Gucci Mama said...

Thanks for putting me up, dearest.

I know the sexy MGs. What fabulous shots!

Fly paper is seriously one of my biggest phobias. I can't even look at the picture.


viemoira said...

Muahahahaha! I do that a lot!

I HATE Flies and fly paper but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Did not play this week- I am too sick. But thanks for the laugh! :)

Sarahmasochist said...

I have done the very same thing with fly paper, with actual flys attached to it.. Icky!

We are a little bit late this week with ours, but we got there in the end. Outdoor fun for this week's HNT. A bit more latex :)

Anonymous said...

I tried to comment from my phone but it didn't want to cooperate. :( So posting from the new MacBook. :)

Had to laugh when I came here and saw the theme. I'm early! What will I do in two weeks? How can I ever top today's fun with post-it notes?
