cheesy wotsits or monster munch under the fridge? or an old sock? or a drunk teenager in the bin?

how many BOYS live in the house??
some male monster of the three in our house is always leaving one odd stinky cheesy sock in hidden corners of our kitchen and lounge

either that or you should see if it follows you around... if it does then your nose is too close to ya feet

Ah now the cheesy feet smell is a particular brand of bacteria. When did you spill milk? Check the floor wherever you make tea normally.

does off milk turn into a cheesy feet smell? seriously? could be where i chuch recycling milk bottles, without rinsing sometimes

or perhaps its a sock?

milk bottles - well not so much bottles cos they clean easily, it's those horrible plastic carton things. sounds like the most sand and sensible suggestion yet.

it's from her!!!!

sorry WMMC. Stop being sensible, please.

whomovedmychocolate · 01/07/2008 22:15

It does indeed. You slattern

gigglewitch · 01/07/2008 22:16

sand???? meant SANE.

which i obviously am not

whomovedmychocolate · 01/07/2008 22:17

Oh and I'm not being sensible. At 36 weeks pregnant I spent two hours today up to my tits in the fish pond, fully dressed, cleaning out the pond filters (three of the buggers) as part of my bizarre nesting instincts. DH has pictures apparently of me up to my hair in blanketweed and koi!

SlartyBartFast · 01/07/2008 22:27

ok. that is not sensible. I take back my accusation of Sanity.

Ecmo · 01/07/2008 22:29

you're lucky the koi didnt latch on with their big sucky mouths

The pond did smell, even after a very long shower I could still smell the sodding fetid water and I have just noticed I have a big hole in my foot (fucking evil fish).

Have just seen photos! I thought he was kidding but apparently not. We do have a very large fishpond - it's probably twenty feet across at least and in the middle is quite deep. It's imperative that the three filters are cleaned once a year - it's been there several years now and this was the first time .

Koi have teeth btw. Two little ones at the front. And they are bastard grumpy from being in various ponds for 40 odd years with people coming up to them, chucking dried fish mush at them and making comments like 'cor I bet they'd go lovely with chips' when we do the open gardens thing!

For your entertainment I have uploaded one of the pics onto my profile. Hope my fricking mw doesn't see it though - I'm allegedly 'resting quietly' at home

Now ,I had a smell of Camembert at the bottom of my stairs and was roundly laughed at by most of MN when I raised it in a you have my best wishes.

No one could tell me what my smell was though. And its stopped now.

Ecmo · 01/07/2008 23:06

tell your mw you got unbearably hot and need to go for a dip

SlartyBartFast · 02/07/2008 12:55

oh thanks maidamess, am contemplating raising it with the day time crowd, the evenign lot are much too merry

Has someone wiped up milk with the dishcloth and then not rinsed it out? Especially if they have then wiped another surface which is now dry? (try sniffing the worksurfaces) gross I know....

maidamess · 02/07/2008 12:59

Someone sensible suggested it may a leak somewhere that was causing the pong du fromage.

SlartyBartFast · 02/07/2008 13:00

my fridge is a bit iffy as well, so i spose it could be that... or the dog

@gigglewitch. Why do you highlight BOYS? If anything, little girls feet stink WAY more than boys, and I think every parent with girls and boys know that. That is why the Rotten Sneaker Contest from Odor Eaters was won by more GIRLS. And for 3 years in a row it was a GIRL that beat out all the boys. One year a very cute 11 year old GIRL won, and the runner up was a very cute little 6 year old GIRL.So stop trying to point out only boys feet stink, because that is so not true. I grew up around a brother, a nephew and tons of boy cousins who never had stinky feet, but all my sisters and FEMALE cousins and friends has VERY cheesy stinky smelling feet.
