Ted Wiseman claims his wife of 46 years, Yvonne, is complaining about his bed time habits and the tidiness of the house they shared in Halesowen, West Midlands. The 79-year-old admits that the love-of-his-life, who died at 65 from a stroke in May 2014, had always worn the trousers in their relationship. http://i.***************/i/pix/2015/03/30/05/2719209700000578-0-image-a-114_1427691493466.jpg Mr Wiseman's wife Yvonne died at 65 from a stroke in May 2014.

Mr Wiseman said: 'Yvonne was the gaffer so I'm not surprised she's still bossing me around now. 'Last month I left a tea towel on the side, and when I turned around it had been put back in its rightful place. 'Yvonne was so house-proud that she hated anything being out of place. I was drifting off to sleep the other night when she told me to "Stop sniffing". 'She always used to complain about my habits in bed. 'Some people might be upset about being nagged by their wife, but it's quite comforting to me.' Throughout Mrs Wiseman's life she not only controlled her adoring family, but everyone else who came near the house. http://i.***************/i/pix/2015/03/30/05/2718F76F00000578-0-image-m-118_1427691524182.jpg +8 http://i.***************/i/pix/2015/03/30/05/2719209300000578-0-image-m-120_1427691535880.jpg Mr Wiseman (left) says his late wife Yvonne (right) is complaining about his bed time habits and the tidiness of the house they shared http://i.***************/i/pix/2015/03/30/05/2719621700000578-0-image-a-123_1427691566683.jpg +8 Mr Wiseman is pictured holding a detergent ball that he says Yvonne put in the washing machine when he had left it out Mr Wiseman said: 'One day a young lad knocked on our door saying he was being chased and could he come in. 'Yvonne was having none of it and just chased him back down the driveway. 'Although she was strong and forthright, Yvonne was never nasty. I'd often suggest going places or doing something and she'd just chuckle and say "no". And that was the end of that. 'I never won those arguments.' During their marriage, Mr Wiseman, a former lollipop man, and Yvonne, a care home worker, had two children and five grandchildren. Son David was with his father when Yvonne first made her presence known from the other side.. The pair were sitting in an Indian restaurant when they watched a side dish slowly glide across the table to rest next to Ted. David, 45, said: 'We were waiting for mains and there were dishes all over the table. 'It was perfectly flat, but all of a sudden this one dish moved from one side of the table over next to me. 'I just knew there and then mum was still with us. She was always trying to sort us out, even when we were out and about.' After that meal, Mr Wiseman contacted a medium to help explain the ghostly goings on. During her visit, he said he received a stern telling off from his late wife through the clairvoyant demanding he take her slippers off.. Since then, Mr Wiseman claims Yvonne has moved a dirty soap dispenser off the kitchen worktop and even helped with the laundry. He said: 'I had just put a load in the washing machine and had put some condition on the top. 'When I turned around to grab the powder and start the wash, the conditioner had gone. I checked the drawer and it was already in there.' All of Yvonne's visits have made Ted a believer in the afterlife. He said: 'I used to be a sceptic, but not anymore. I'm seeing it almost every week at least. 'It's definitely happening to me through Yvonne.'
