Hipsters, ducks, and a nationwide lack of those things you put on your bicycle wheel spokes that make clacky noises when you pedal?

I dunno. I think the fact that you can rarely find sweets sold by the quarter is also important.

I blame spiders. Creepy fuckers who are the stuff of nightmares and who exist only to terrorise unsuspecting humans and make our homes unliveable in in autumn.

Wet bath mats

i blame the weather

HoneyDragon Sat 25-Jun-16 08:40:40

Wet bath mats .... That's ninja ducks getting in dampening them, that is.

PeaceOfWildThings Sat 25-Jun-16 08:41:41

More seagulls now. It used to be pigeons, don't remember ducks ever being a problem though.

People eating in the street, it's the beginning of the end!

Hipsters did the death of sweets by the quarter with their ridiculous slithers of and spoonfuls and covering it with salted caramel or granola crumble

What even is that shit ?

SpiceLinerandHoneyLove Sat 25-Jun-16 08:47:38

Noel's House Party being taken off air was the beginning of the end

Ah, you can buy Spokey Dokeys in Tiger and right next door is a shop that sells sweets by the quarter.

I blame the lack of toys on the cereal. Everyone used to love the toys in the cereal.

Those two stupid plastic balls on a string that you clack!

You never manage to actually clack them but successfully break your knuckles every time

NeedACleverNN Sat 25-Jun-16 08:52:10

Oh and we have a sweet shop where we can buy how much we want

So 50p here and £3 there

Tessticklesyourfancy Sat 25-Jun-16 08:52:59

Some good points being made here. I truly believe it all turned to shit when Marathon and Opal Fruits became Snickers and Starburst. We were all doomed after that

ClopySow Sat 25-Jun-16 08:55:50

It all went wrong after saturday swapshop.

FrankUnderwoodsWife Sat 25-Jun-16 08:56:01

You are all being ridiculous.

It's clearly fruits fault.
Bloody apples preaching you should eat one of them a day. And then other, sweet, portable natural food stuffs getting in on the bandwagon and increasing it it 5. Five!!!

Who ever heard of not sending your child into school with a Nutella sandwich, bag of hula hoops and a "fruit" shoot? It's practically child abuse, and twas the beginning of the end.

Fruit are knobs. Your heard it here first.

HoneyDragon Sat 25-Jun-16 09:44:12

I'm drinking fruit and kale <checks self for hipster beard>

whirlygirly Sat 25-Jun-16 12:19:21

I think it all went wrong when roller boots changed into roller blades.

Creampastry Sat 25-Jun-16 12:21:53

I blame it on cous cous .....

HopeArden Sat 25-Jun-16 12:25:36

Nah, it was when dairy milk stopped being sold in foil with a paper wrapper and got value engineered rounded corners!

It doesn't make that satisfying snap when you break it anymore either sad

ditavonteesed Sat 25-Jun-16 12:25:59

your mum!

My Gran started eating lentils on a Thursday.

ThinkAboutItTomorrow Sat 25-Jun-16 12:32:20

All I know is that things were ok when baths were avocado coloured and every house had tiles like this

FrankUnderwoodsWife Sat 25-Jun-16 12:53:29

Honey I just know you have some ducks waddling about your back garden, you hipster
