Hi ...i have missed being on mumsnet--- the socks will have to pile up and the plates will have to wait to be washed as i have tried for a couple of months to as my husband says 'not keep wasting time on the internet (THAT is what my husband thinks i do ALL day!!!!!)
And guess what....there is still chaos/muddles and disorder....but in addition i have felt MISERABLE!!!!
So.....why the strange title you may ask.....well..... as you may know my home is full of Asperger's....and every now and then my eldest will say something which makes me 'glow with pride' ... and this time when he said what he said i immediately 'automatically' thought of posting it on MN...as i always have in the past.....then i remembered my selfimposed boycot...so didn't!!!! Then after watching that ADHD Horizon programme last night and feeling it got a bit too close to my homelife than i was prepared for- i realised that i had to put aside the house work today and post this message!!! (which as usual is a load of waffle....with the odd fact thrown in!!!)
Right....introduction finished ....now for the nitty gritty!
AUTO RAISING FLOUR
T (age 11) was watching me make Yorshire pudding and he said "You must be using Auto Raising Flour"....i smiled....hugged him for being 'so uspecial!' and then explained that you have to use plain flour ...and that the correct term for 'Auto Raising' is 'SELF RAISING'...Then he asked why you use plain whn the yorkshires 'rise' ....etc!!!!
I THINK IT SHOULD BE CALLED 'AUTO RAISING'.....!!!
Basically T has a very technial mind and this phrase illustrates what his thoughts are like!!!
I'm soooo glad you came back out of hiding, MrsF. There have been loads of times lately where I've been sniggering at something and thought "Where's MrsF when I need her?" And you missed at least 2 laminator threads!
LOL about the Auto Raising Flour! I've missed the Forgetful Tales.
another 'funny' was the other day with my (? NT?) son 'A' who was asking me why i didn't like somebody we know....i replied that
"she never listens to me"
to which he replied
"well, maybe you should say 'Excuse Me'"
Well....again i have to smile...as he's the one supposedly 'attention seeking'...not ASD etc....and here yet again was another example of his 'literal interperation of language'!!!
p.s...for a laugh...just look at the thread i've started on the Arts/Crafts....i have ballsed up bigtime with the tiltl...and people are taking the piss!!!!! Again another example of ME and my BIG MOUTH!!! (also a bit of wordplay here...maybe a smidgen of my AS creeping through too!)
spooky.....here i am!!! (hey! found a pack of 25 coloured laminating pouches today for £4.99...only wallet sized...but reckon they'd come in handy! Any ideas whjat i can use them for BEFORE i buy them!!!!
