Forgot to wash the conditioner out of my hair and then went with dh + ds to buy ds a pair of new shoes. One side of my hair dried, the ohter looked like half a ton of nice smelling chip fat had been poured over my head blush

Worse than the tea pot was the incident just after DS1 was born, at the tender age of 5 days I went shopping and left him in his pram and carried on down the street without him. I had totally forgotton I had had him.

Realised I had the qwrong trolley in the supermarket. Had to go to customer services who made an anouncement for everyone to check their trollies. Hid for 10 mins to return to CS counter to find the majority of my shopping left there in another trolley hmm

Not sure how it happened though...

I put the nearly new butter in the cupboard instead of the fridge. Then I left the casserole on high for 2 hours and killed my Le crueset. Hubby came home, asked me where the butter was and what that burning smell is. I cried so hard I had to go to bed and calm down!

Thank God I'm not the only one

Emzy - did you realise before or after you put the washing machine on?

Emzy5 Sun 14-Oct-07 13:34:45

I put the teapot in the fridge. DH still hasn't let me forget about it and it was 21 years ago.

on my last day of work before I started maternity leave for my first ds I logged out of my computer at about 4 in the afternoon and left my desk for about 10 mins. When I came back I forgot my password even though I had been using the same one for months.

With ''help'' from IT wasn't able to log in again until about 8 in the evening - hardly the quick getaway I was hoping for.

moominsmummy Sun 14-Oct-07 13:07:21

Can't believe I did this - took DS swimming this morning and after 5 minutes in the pool noticed I still had my bra on under my swimming costume blushblush

still cringing now...
