it is not a good idea to put two 9volt batteries in your pocket along with your keys and a few coins. Not sure what exactly was going on but I nearly set my trousers on fire!

In the days when 'everybody' smoked, I was watching a cricket match, when the ball was hit towards a fielder, who didn't catch it, but it brushed his upper leg. Seconds later his trousers were on fire! He'd had a box of matches in the pocket - not the safety sort, and the friction between the match-heads caused by the ball had set them all alight.

1. When asking your PA to book train tickets to London for two separate dates, make sure you have straight in your mind the fact that the trains back are at two different times, an hour apart.
2. When going to the first event, check your return ticket before you get to Euston so that you don't turn up for the 18:10 only to find that your train for the second event is the 18:10 one and the train for the first event was the 17:10 one which you have therefore missed, resulting in the need to pay an excess ticket fee of £21.50 for a new ticket to travel on the 18:10.
3. Accept Sod's Law dictates that an incident on the line means that the 18:10 will sit for 69 minutes at Nuneaton station whereas the 17:10, presumably, was on time.

When you decide to make a lemon sponge, make sure that what you're adding is indeed lemon flavouring and not pure citric acid.

When stepping off a ladder check you are on the bottom rung as you thought, not three rungs up. Falling off from there, even if it's not a great height, can really hurt.

Thank you, yes I'm fine. I had the cat in my arms at the time and he was underneath me when I fell. I was more bothered about him but he seems fine as well.
My husband is very concerned about me though so I might do a Joey and milk it for a while :D

Before you leave the house it's worth taking a moment to check that you have your distance glasses on rather than your reading specs. That way your vision won't be blurry while you're out, you won't panic about it and you won't think you need another visit to the optician.

Ah yes the same when you wake in the night and grab what you think are the reading specs and then you can't make out a single word on the page......

When planning to go to a café and write, check that your laptop is actually charged. It is also a good idea to pack the cable, just in case.
Failing this, make sure you have packed a notebook that has more than two blank pages left.

1. When offering to buy your daughter's wedding dress give her a budget.
2. Do not expect her to stick to it.
3. When she has chosen her dress and been measured for it, do not expect it to fit when it arrives from the dress maker.
4. Do expect alterations to cost the earth.
5. Expect that turning up the hem counts as an alteration (although she was measured for height.
6. Do not tell husband that we are already 50% over budget and we haven't had the final fitting yet!

When scrolling through Abebooks desperate to feed a new obsession with Anthony Berkeley, ensure you order actual book books, rather than a NOTEBOOK featuring the cover of Not To Be Taken.

Guess I might use it to start writing a detective novel.

"Customers who enjoyed this book also bought.... Book 2!" at the end of your ebook actually means "they preordered it and will need to wait till May 2017".

How misleading and disappointing!

If you're cooking fruit, have rinsed it and put the water on the garden, do make sure nothing else has slid into the bowl - I've just discovered my citrus juicer on the right-hand flower-bed!

If you tip up the conditioner bottle and nothing comes out, close the lid before you shake it encouragingly.
Having made this mistake, remember the result so you don't wind up doing exactly the same thing next time you wash your hair.
