Just Sitting Here.......

...wondering......


.....why there is a pair of pink spotty knickers hanging from one of the hall lights....

....why every single one of the fourteen kitchen cupboard doors is open....

....why nobody in this house bothers with me unless I am on the phone or in the bath, when I suddenly become the most exciting person on earth.......

....why, despite the fact that I seem to do obscene amounts of washing and ironing, nobody ever has anything to wear......

....why, when I discovered the Football Fanatic scrabbling under her bed in the dark and asked what she was doing, she replied, 'I'm looking for the tomato sauce'....


AND WHY IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT'S HOLY IS THERE A STRAY KITTEN IN A BASKET IN THE PORCH???????

I wish I knew the answers but your post made me laugh.

I think there better be a toddy of something in that cuppa...

Katney said...

Hmm. Sounds almost normal.

Suzysoo said...

Sounds like one of your lot has acquired a new 'friend'!

Count to ten....no, actually, make that a hundred!

Ah, you need a holiday and not tell the lot of them where you are for at least a week! Why have you got a kitten in a basket? Is that kinda retro food like chicken in a basket used to be?!

Kitty said...

The knickers ... have you been swinging from the chandeliers again? ;-) x

Amrita said...

Your cup 's full already Jackie

ChrisB said...

That sounds like my daughter's household1

As Maggie May said, I wish I had the answer! I ask myself most of these same questions about 100 times a day!!! :)

ExpatKat said...

So familiar. Except for the knickers on the hall lamp. The mind boggles!

Daryl said...

Your life is so interesting! I guess 5 girls will do that to a household though!

Renae said...

Where else would you keep the tomato sauce?

Akelamalu said...

Is it a quiz? :0

SMS said...

Has anyone thought to offer that poor kitten a drink yet?
Sounds like a lot of fun in your house!

Natalie said...

looking for tomato sause? LOL! too funny!

qualcosa di bello said...

sounds like regular coffee ain't cuttin' it for you today...you need some caffe` corretto!!!

GoneBackSouth said...

Sounds like kitty wants to become an extra family member.

Mean Mom said...

Forgot to say - could you look after my kitten for a few days? I have to go on holiday. ;0)

I do like this post. It reminds me of life in my house, before my lot upped and went. You'll miss it all, when it's no longer happening!

No answers only plenty more tea and sympathy.

A Mother's Place is in the Wrong said...

That all sounds perfectly normal Jackie! Lovely... And my Daughter still manages to telephone when I'm either on the loo or in the shower - no kidding. I think they have this sixth sense about it. M :-)
PS Hope you didn't eat the kitten-in-a-basket!

Kimmie said...

What a kitten! How wonderful...don't offer it the under the bed tomato sauce though...it would prefer a bowl of milk and maybe some tuna.

Yes and yes again!! You've said so much in so few words.

I know this exciting woman in the bathroom routine so well!... Mum? Mum? Are you in there?

I have banned the children from calling me "Mum?". Not out of mean spirit but because it's much like being shocked with an electric cattle prod, I find.
Mum? Can I...
Mum? Where are you...
Mum? He's doing my head in...
Mum? I'm hungry...
MUM? I'm bored...

I've started answering the "Mum?"s with: Ready! in a mock cheery voice. Through clenched teeth.

I expect this is all - - n o r m a l - -
