I need to cut my lawn. Do you think I'll need to do it again before the winter?

God, MI, the hours must just fly by!

DD is miffed weith me because we can never get personalised pencils for her as her name isn't popular enough

MI, given that he brought back a pillowcase under the impression it was his shirt I think it is entirely possible he would lose his trousers, yes. Genius idea about getting him to do it though.

With things in the cabinets MI? I have a beautifully organised and photogenic cabinet here if you need some inspiration on cabinet dressage.

Elenya, I have ordered a box of those pencils for my little boy in Africa.

Tamum · 24/09/2007 20:04

Slubber, have you done an Excel spreadsheet of the contents of your bathroom cabinet? I feel you should, really.

Slubberdegullion · 24/09/2007 20:05

Or should that be cabinet staging?

hifi · 24/09/2007 20:05

just emptied all my dd potties, all 3 ,phew.

i was just sorting through my 'party' box, and have found two flexible pencils, one pink and one purple. So bendy they can be tied in a knot [awe]

hmmm, an excel spreadsheet eh. With that I could use the data for a pie chart. I could do a presentation to the family at breakfast, I would need a sharp (personalised) pencil to highlight the important facts.

In this house shelf A contains 50% calpol, 30% neurofen, 10% piriton and 10% the dregs of a bottle of tixylicks.

Good for you, slowreader - maybe he will keep his pencils for 28 years too.

MB you can order these in any name, you know - I am a bit of an expert in such things.

I am wondering if an Excel spreadsheet for Slubber's cabinet is a bit interesting?

motherinferior · 24/09/2007 20:11

Slubber, with pictures and auditing.

(It wasn't my idea but I bet it sells, in far greater numbers than the piece I commissioned on how to survive Christmas with your mental and physical health intact.)

Tamum · 24/09/2007 20:14

Oh yes, I like the idea of the breakfast time presentation to the family. Excellent idea that we would all do well to emulate.

ChippyMinton · 24/09/2007 20:15

if you have a common popular name you can buy personalised pencils (and erasers too) in tesco.

Tamum · 24/09/2007 20:16

Oh yes, I spotted them too Chippy. Quite bright colours.

ElenyaTuesday · 24/09/2007 20:17

I am feeling quite deflated now - my pencil no longer feels so special......

slowreader · 24/09/2007 20:17

My ds has a pencil shaped like a treble clef

I'm not that excited by my presentation so far. I don't even have a working pencil. I don't think my family cares about the subject. I don't think 2 and 3 year olds can fully grasp the concept of the pie chart. The printer has run out of colour..I know I could do different shades of grey.....

Does MB play lawn bowls then?

MI, what it Good House Keeping? I would become your MN passion stalker if you worked at Good House Keeping.

Tamum · 24/09/2007 20:32

I feel that for the purposes of this thread MI should work at GH really. Sorry about your presentation Slubber, but I think you should just go ahead- they may only be 2 and 3 but they have to get to grips with Powerpoint at some stage.

slowreader · 24/09/2007 20:33

Brackets would also work.

slowreader · 24/09/2007 20:36

Sorry, was talking to FF re. ,s.

Tamum · 24/09/2007 20:37

It took me ages to work that out slowreader, I was on the verge of pointing out that brackets might hold a shelf but would not be as safe for medicines.
