last night I was closing down PC and took phone back to bedroom to put on charge and I had extreme difficulty in putting it in the base - that is, until I took a proper look at it - yes it was cordless but it was a mouse!

I have a wooden knife block which I washed. The wood must have swelled because one knife would not fit back in and had to be stored standing up from the block.

It stayed like this for ages,until I thought it could do with another wash and realized it was upside down.

LMAO. I often go to the larder cupboard and start to wonder why the frozen chips aren't in there.

I remember my neighbour telling me once of how she had gone upstairs one afternoon to get something and the next thing she knew she was in bed in her nightie.

I really peed my (then teenage) daughter off once, by taking the remote to work instead of my mobile.

......and I was a lot younger then .... :-S

I once took the Sky remote to work instead of my mobile.
Worse still, in front of everyone, I took it out my bag and tried to dial out.
It was sooooo embarrassing ... I worked at SKY!
