  • When was Friday 13th ??????

    Firstly I must say I am a very clean and tidy person ( think of Monica off Friends, I'm not that bad but you're on the right track ). Anyway my multi-talented hubby comes home at 3pm today all tooled up with brushes and says he s going to clean our chimney. I am really busy getting an order ready to send out and just replied 'ok' 'dont make a mess cos I've cleaned all through this morning'. At 4.30 I decided to go and have a look why the carept cleaner was being used and low and behold our two month old beige carpet is now BLACK. I was very composed and asked what had hapened and was infomred 'there had been a soot fall'!!!!!. I calmly informed my hubby that he has lost all his brownie points and went back to my work room. I have now been handed a glass of white wine and have been promised a dominoes pizza for supper - every cloud has a silver lining.
    Could someone please confirm that Friday 13th was last week and not today.

            I'm amazed that he only lost his brownie points - my hubby would have lost things that were a lot more painful!!!

              mmmm, I had a similar experience (albeit not so costly) last night

              The potatoes I was cooking had literally 10 minutes left to cook, but I had to rush out (consultation with bride to be!), so I told OH to remember to take them out, I told him at least 5 times, he promised me he wouldn't forget...... cue 25 minutes later a text message...... and coming home to a pile of black potatoes!

              What is it with the men in our lives, were they sent here to test/annoy us? MUSHY ALERT - burnt potatoes or not, i'll keep him!

                Friday the thirteenth was the day my boiler had a tantrum and decided to go on strike after being serviced so recently. Thankfully the chaps came and had a look at it yesterday. Alls working ok so far...
