If you have gone to the kitchen for a bottle of wine from the fridge, returning with a cake fork will impress no-one.

...but they will be very impressed when you open the wine with the cake fork. :wink:

You rather have to produce the wine in the first place

If you have put the scales on to the kg setting to weigh your suitcase, remember to put it back to the stones and pounds settings before you weigh yourself. Otherwise, for a few crazy moments you will think that you weigh between 60 and 70 stone.

The tin of cocoa powder goes on the shelf and the milk in the fridge, not vice versa. (And doing this twice does not improve matters!)

Spraying furniture polish into the air does not kill flies - though it might make them nice and shiny ............. and it's not the first time I've done this.

Equally, making up fly spray concentrate and putting it in a Windex bottle while neglecting to tell the rest of the family can lead to some very smeary, if fly-free, windows.

It's a good idea to check your fingers for papercuts before sticking them in a tub of nail varnish remover.

When you leave the Scout Hall after cleanup day in which you gave all 3 toilets a deep clean before vacuuming and carefully mopping the parquet floor in the main hall, it is a good idea to bring the Scout Hall mop home to wash for returning tomorrow.

When you get home & want nothing more than food and to soak in the bath, it is still a good idea to put the mops on to wash first.

It wold have been a good idea not to put too much detergent in the washing machine drawer. It also would have been a good idea to put away the things you brought home in your mop bucket.

That way, when you get home from the chip shop round the corner to find detergent suds foaming out of the washing machine drawer, you could put down the towels you brought home from the Scout Hall to wash, and use your spare mop to soak up the suds into the mop bucket, instead of the old nappy bucket you use for damp washing waiting to be done, and your elder son uses to soak his ingrown toenails in.

Otherwise, when you have finally got the mops out of the washing machine and put to dry, and gone upstairs to run a bath with the last of your relaxing bubble bath, and your elder son gets in from work planning to have a shower and treat his ingrown toenails, you will have to stop running your relaxing bath, go and get the nappy bucket, clean it out before filling it with hot water for him.

Only then can you resume relaxing bath.

And think that at least your kitchen floor is clean (like the 4 other floors you had already done).

Oh, I feel like Katy Carr and 'for want of a nail the horse shoe was lost...'!

When making a cup of tea, it is a good idea to put a teabag in the cup first (and to look what's in the cup before adding milk, or you judst get hot watery milk!)

I've almost made several of those recently, ivohenry!

(This one is on behalf of an old schoolfriend, who is also a relation)
When you're only in London for a few days (from abroad) and trying to meet up with me, it's not the greatest idea to ignore my e-mail for three days and then say "We could have met you yesterday but I wasn't quick enough getting back to you".
Yes, it was prefaced with an apology, but...!

Putting washing powder in the dishwasher instead of dishwasher powder produces an effect that could have come straight out of a slapstick comedy.

As my washing machine [with its tablets/capsules etc] is in the garage, and the dishwasher and its tablets in the kitchen, I am thankful that this is unlikely to happen in my household! :lol: :lol:

The fact that you can squirt washing-up liquid into the dishwasher instead of a tablet does not mean that you can just put fabric conditioner into the washing machine and expect it to do the job.

Don't tell the kids you're taking prep. duty with that you're new. Also (on behalf of one such kid) if there's one sixth-former in the room every week without fail, and no-one else not in your form is there, she's probably the sixth-former on prep. duty, and you should probably listen to her instead of teasing her because her favourite TV show aired on Nickelodeon.

Also, "you now have the responsibility to get yourself to bed at a sensible time" means "you now have the responsibility to get yourself to bed at a sensible time", not "you have permission to stay awake making virtual cross-stitch pictures until three in the morning".

ETA: Do not, repeat NOT, go back to the aforementioned cross-stitch to "just finish this bit", thus keeping yourself awake another half-hour.

Lastly, if you will insist on listening to comedy songs by a group noted not only for hilarity but also for terribly unladylike language (Fascinating Aïda), for pity's sake don't stroll past the primary school section of your school singing them.

And still more!

Stubbornly putting in your school password for your personal email will not work no matter how many times you try it. Also, please learn your lesson the first time. It will save you hours of frustration.

I remember watching a programme about Fascinating Aida years ago; Dilly was singing so the soundman could set the microphones up and it was rather a naughty song she was singing about how ladies suffer once a month (it was funny though). :lol:

Remember to actually unlock the front door before trying to go out! This will save 5 minutes of wondering (and cursing) why it's stuck.........
