Bits

A Freegler offered a rule plaque for a teenager’s bedroom door; it was the usual stuff but these caught my eye:

  • GROWN UPS ARE ALLOWED WHEN BRINGING REFRESHMENTS.
  • GROWN UPS PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS A NAG FREE ZONE.

 

The best excuse EVER for not vacuuming the house comes courtesy of my cousin’s wife’s Facebook Status; the lovely Sandrine, who is now my idol:

I really should be hoovering, but I wouldn’t want to increase my carbon footprint, now would I ?

She swears she’s not lazy, but a closet environmentalist.  I believe her.

A man and a woman who have never met before find themselves in the same sleeping carriage of a train. After the initial embarrassment, they both manage to get to sleep; the woman on the top bunk, the man on the lower. 
In the middle of the night the woman leans over and says, “I’m sorry to bother you, but I’m awfully cold and I was wondering if you could possibly pass me another blanket.” 
The man leans out and with a glint in his eye said “I’ve got a better idea … let’s pretend we’re married.” 
“Why not,” giggles the woman. 
“Good,” he replies. “Get your own blanket.”

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.
