How To Be A Good Wife (1955)

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 prospect of a good meal is part of the warm
welcome needed.

Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so that you'll 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-weary 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
play the part.

Minimize all noise. At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the
washer, dryer, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be
quiet. 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 and 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.

They are places, usually derived from two or more words merged together.
The term place is described as a locality, spot, or site. Whereas word is described as an articulate sound expressing an idea.
It is being picky, but place names aren't included in that statement.
The posters decision is final, no written or verbal correspondence will be entered into.

in fact, there's small hamlet just outside Gurple-under-Spilver called Bonth.

Think I might have passed through there once upon a time...
Bri, I'd be lucky to find a woman that does all that work for their man in this day and age.

P.S. Is it true that this house you're building is to be on the grounds of the recently demolished Buckingham Palace, that small weekend cottage that you bought recently?
