** coughs**

I actually do have a few house rules :

Do not eat in my front room, and certainly not snacks.. hot drinks are allowed but you must use a coaster.Do not use the scatter cushions for your own comfort they are arrange in that order for a reason.

Do not eat in any of the bedrooms....that is what a dinning room is for and yes that includes snacks...

If you spot any dust or cobwebs please bring this to my attention BEFORE any visitors arrived, do so when they have arrived you do at your own peril :-|

Do not use the bathroom for anything at least till an hour after I have cleaned it , these that choose to queue at the door jumping from foot to t'other will be provided with a bucket.

If you are not aquintted YET with the display towel rule, then here is a refresher . DO NOT USE THEM OR WOOBETIDE :-|

My house + My rules

Clean the bath after you have used it
You spot a cobweb, you remove it
Toilet seat & lid both down then FLUSH


Bobtanian Report 10 May 2013 20:22

we DO have A variation on rules one of them being

if it cries feed it
if it still cries change it
if it still cries after that, give it back to its mother!


Bobtanian Report 10 May 2013 20:13

sorry but I still dont see the connection, with angela flowers......
wondering if she had a Man loo in the outhouse

both my loos work as intended,

but if you mean like,take your boots off before getting into bed............

or as in "Lady and the Tramp, the new Nanny insisted .......... THAT DOG WILL LIVE IN THE YARD!"
yeah i'll go along with that one.......

I think Bobtanian and I were merely interested as to the context of such a strange rule


~Lynda~ Report 10 May 2013 19:59

Bob, it's hardly cryptic, Dermot & Shelley understand the title.
