What a shame!  I’ve already blogged on postaday2011’s prompt over on sapoems, just a few days ago.  If you didn’t read it, here’s the link.

What is the wackiest but most useful advice you’ve ever received, Laughing Housewife? I hear you ask.

My reply? How not to be eaten by a crocodile. 

You weren’t interested at first, but you’re itching to check it out now, aren’t you?

I imagine that even if you only need to use that advice once in your life, you’ll be glad to know it.  It’s why I’ve never forgotten it.

The other piece of advice I’ve never forgotten, which isn’t wacky but has saved me a lifetime of housework and is therefore worth passing on: don’t put it down; put it away.

If you can bludgeon your family into following it as well, you’ll be my fan for life.

    Yes, yes, PUT it away! And close the drawer or cabinet while you’re at it before you walk away.

    My friend Maria has a notice on her fridge with a load of wisdom like your “don’t put it down…” – I’ll ask her for a copy for you.

      Thanks Viv; I’d love a copy. Or post it on your blog for everyone to share.

    […] am also conscious of the fact that Tilly Bud has been given advice on how to avoid being eaten by a crocodile, so I feel well out of my league […]


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
