IN an incredible act of generosity, a man has done some cleaning and babysitting for his wife’s 40th birthday present.
Martin Bishop pulled out all the stops for the important date, wiping several worksurfaces and watching television with their two children for a staggering two-and-a-half hours.
Bishop said: “I wanted to do something special for Sarah’s big four-oh but she can be very difficult to buy presents for.
“Then I saw an article about International Women’s Day and it made me think, what if I did all her chores and agreed to babysit for her? Wouldn’t that be both an amazing present and a powerful statement?
“I’m sure she preferred it to an expensive watch or a luxury weekend break or something.”
In advance of his wife’s birthday, Bishop posted his intentions across social media where his thoughtful and imaginative present was praised by male friends.
Bishop added: “If people want to call me a hero, that’s up to them. But I’m just a simple man who wanted to say to his wife ‘This is your special night’.”
Wife Sarah said: “Bin bags. That’s what Martin’s getting for his birthday.”
