Families little mysteries

Why is it when i choose to go and have a relaxing bubbly bath....and i have made it clear more than once that unless its really important i dont want to be disturbed...so when my son sits on the bed outside the bathroom and announces he wants to talk, i figure its important

clearly we have different ideas of what important means..."mum what do you think the chances are of me getting a PS4 for xmas are?"

really!!! its not even the end of August, and thats not important, my relaxing bath turns into a full on argument....the answer is  "not a bloody chance"

We have a visitor in our house called Notme, apparently many other families have the same visitor as well, he comes around quite a lot, Notme is responsible for a lot of issues here, he leaves dirty dishes on the sides, he leaves the back door open, he dumps laundry on the floor, he leaves empty containers in the fridge.....he is a unwelcome visitor.

Pens and pencils.....i really should invest in shares...because i seem to buy them constantly but when i want one...oh they are nowhere to be found..maybe its Notme.

Socks...what is about socks, that they start off as pairs and then they mysteriously go astray, and i waste (i hate to think how much time) emptying laundry baskets (last place i should look really, im sure everyone thinks there for decoration only), looking in drawers and i cant find a matching pair.

So sod it if you cant beat em, join em...im changing me name to..

Notme

  1. LOL!

    Notme is one of those evil house guests that you would never willingly invite in, but who settles down and never seems to leave.

    Nice name change lol. Now who left that dirt on my clean floor?

  7. tori,

    We ordered the XBOX ONE for ourselves. Yes. My wife and I play video games.

    I put all my socks in a lingerie bag. It may be extreme, but my running socks are special and expensive. I never lose a sock.

    Hug,
    joey

  9. LoL
    We most definitely have a NotMe. Plus the ILookedButCouldn'tFindIt and the CanWeDoItNow visitors.
    Roll on an empty house.
    Socks, they breed, but only odd ones.

  12. Notme resides in this house. I've tried giving an eviction notice, but it didn't hold up in the courts-go figure. My son, who is no where 16, has text me multiple times asking whose car he well be driving when he gets his license. Maybe this is his way to get a yes for a PS4 when he hits me with it..haha
