and not to come to my house looking all serene and perfect, while I running around like a headless chicken with all the dcs and cake mix in my hair?

well i suppose if you've had their kids


Camillathechicken · 30/11/2007 19:49

if oyu like, i will call round looking like a heap , as long as you giev me cake !


BBBee · 30/11/2007 19:51

if i go to work i am not allowed to look like a heap. i could out rank you on eye bags though!

cake mix is nothing. I once got to the till at the supermarket only to realise I had bird seed in my hair. I scratched my head and out it came. A little shower of millet and sunflower hearts and other birdy morsels. And I didn't have any children to blame my absent-minded frazzledness on.

but in answer to OP, yes it is in fact downright bloody rude for people to turn up at your house looking better than you do.
