Do not:

- drop overripe blackberries all over the floor
- get distracted by small child and forget to wash hands after picking up aforementioned blackberries
- take white wash out of washing machine

... <sigh> ...

<LL reloads washing machine, scrubs floor, cries>

whoopsy

Can I join in?

Do not:

- take the washing out of the machine and leave it in the washing basket
- forget it's there and make some toast
- sweep bread crumbs from counter, missing catching-hand, and watch them land in clean washing
- put your cup of tea down half on top of the jam jar, because it won't balance supported by thin air, and it will crash onto the counter, flinging hot tea everwhere, including a spectacular wave which will land in the washing
- forget to put washing powder in when you reload the machine
- burn the toast

Do:
- eat biscuits for breakfast and be thankful it was a dark load




Bugger.

Do not:
-flush the toilet when it contains a plastic bath toy boat that the kids have dropped down there - it will defy logic and go down the pipes despite it's size - causing a blockage in the pipes and the toilet will overflow and flood the bathroom with sewage - resulting in a £110 bill from dino-rod to come and remove fore mentioned boat from pipes, whilst dino-rod man has a jolly good laugh when the cause of blockage is discovered and you're left with a bathroom which needs a new carpet and completely dis-infecting. Oh the shame blush

Do not sprinkle formula powder on pasta, thinking it is grated parmesan.

Do NOT offend middle-aged, bearded gentlemen in hotel lobbies. He will almost certainly be the King of Sweden.

Do not think your car is stuck and just needs a little more gas.

Because you've reversed it into a pillar, you plank.

Do not leave flash wipes next to the toilet.

littlelapin Sat 15-Sep-07 14:34:24

Who was it who wiped their child's face after lunch with a Flash wipe...

Neverenough Sat 15-Sep-07 14:34:48

cornsilk Sat 15-Sep-07 14:35:14

numptysmummy Sat 15-Sep-07 14:37:11

Don't use a sponge with a green scrubbing side to wash a black car

Neverenough Sat 15-Sep-07 14:37:54

Do not buy new suitcase in a hurry, take to conference and not actually look at it, then announce when leaving for train it's not your suitcase, causing general chaos and rushing around to catch people who have left to go to other station........only to open it after much persuasion......blush

littlelapin Sat 15-Sep-07 14:40:11

littlelapin Sat 15-Sep-07 14:42:38

gibberish Sat 15-Sep-07 14:43:02

Don't decide to defrost the freezer, switch it off, leave the door wide open then go out for the morning. Came back after shopping today to find the room swimming in water hmm Can't believe there was so much of it!
