I thought the correct phrase was -

"Whats MINE is MINE and whats Hers is Mine!"

LOL.......!!!
I just couldn't see painting the paneling, my grandfather built this place and made the paneling himself. It's really nice!
I had to be in the hospital for hip surgery when my brother changed all the faucets. He put bright chrome faucets, modern-looking, where there were brushed pewter-type. I changed it all back, as my brother didn't throw them away.
I was going through some health isseus when I moved in here, my hip and back, and he was trying to help.

I do most of the cooking as I am more at home but DW still feels that it is her area and she organises it. I do subtle changes to suit me but otherwise am not too bothered.

I think your "revenge" is great. I'm going to keep that one handy.
If your father is happy and does not care if SHE moved things around, then perhaps your should not disrupt their kitchen. I'm sure you miss your mother, but your father's happiness should be more important to you than where the corkscrew or basting brush are kept. If he does not care, then you should not care either. You should respect your father and not attempt to sabotage the relationship which is giving him joy. BTW, they can see right through your antics, and I'm sure SHE is sad that you don't accept her as your father's helpmate.

Yes, you can love more than one person in your lifetime, and that does not mean that your father loves your late mother any less.
