To think someone is shrinking my clothes?

And that it is the only explanation as to why they suddenly feel tighter or don't fit any more?

I'm trying on clothes as I finally have a night out planned tomorrow and the new things I have bought and didn't try on don't seem to fit as well as they should.

There is obviously no possible explanation other than the stealth shrinker!

I have this problem too!

Exactly the same issue here! What's going on? There must be something happening, I cannot think of one single reason why everything I buy is too tight I can think of about 20 yummy reasons though.

Its a conspiracy!

I will have to go in joggers and a jumper at this rate grin

That's if they haven't shrunk too obviously

Someone is shrinking mine too! I think it's the lotus spread people blush

I am 40 weeks pregnant and genuinely there are no clothes left. I can't go another 2 weeks. I'll have to go naked.

wow, there must be an epidemic, a whole wardrobe full of clothes of shrunk heresad

Glad to see its not just me who has been targeted. Might have blamed myself had you lot not shown up

grin

No, you're wrong! There is a secret army of goblins who creep into your wardrobe when you are asleep and take all your clothes in a bit.

I thought everyone knew this?

Me too sad especially my bras blush

Me too, and they've even come and shrunk my bath, pesky goblin feckers!

No bath shrinking here, seems to just like my clothes.

Guess I will have to sit up with my chocolate and wait for the fuckers

I decided to keep you company with my icecream and I have just heard the wardrobe drawers and door opening and closing upstairs. DH went to bed an hour ago shock

It is a phenomenon associated with MN, unfortunately Derek.

I have discovered that typing posts actually incurs calories - and including smileys tots up to an additional 75 calories a pop.

biscuit = 67 cals

cake = 78 cals

smile = 80 calories

An AIBU post full of vituperative bile = 250 cals

Whilst frittering away time on here, I have attempted to ameliorate these effects by nibbling on fig rolls, cubes of vintage cheddar and bowls of Kelly's Clotted Cream Ice Cream - but to no avail. I may have to resort to txtspk to cut down.

My clothes shrinkers seem to attack at the same time each week - right after the weekend!

Calories = the little creatures the hide in our wardrobes and shrink our favourite clothes.

I wondered if they had a name joys. Thank you, they sound terrifying

EatShitDerek Thu 05-Jun-14 15:49:37

Found something that the 'calories' haven't shrunk!

I too have found something the calories haven't shrunk - it is me.
