why is it that some thing's are strange but true.

why is it that when you do the washing up and check the bowl before emptying you never find the tea spoon until the bowl is tipped out?

Why do cats eat grass then come into the house to be sick?

Why are they always,ALWAYS, sick on the carpet and not on the kitchen floor tiles?

Why do stray cats keep moving in with me? I now have five,plus countless that just wander in for a free meal.

Why am I indoors playing with this lappy when the weather is so beautiful??

Wend and the little blighters go inside the ceiling light fittings and die and when you put the lights on the corpses are on show. How they get there when the light is flush is a puzzle

Why does something I've been seeing for days suddenly disappear when I want it? :-S

Why do husbands follow you around switching of the lights and leave you in the dark or like today start putting shopping away , think "Oh cupboard could do with a sort out" and continues to do so right at my feet while I'm trying to bake!
Or why does the phone or door bell go just when you go to the loo?

Why do I only hear from some people when they want something?


GlasgowLass Report 28 Sep 2013 19:40

Why, do so many household appliances break down in quick succession?
Since mid September....
My shower leaked and caused a hole in the kitchen ceiling.
It also caused a partial power failure ( downstairs sockets) which lasted 3 days.
The power was restored, and the microwave blew when plugged into the socket.
Bought a new microwave.. and yesterday, the dishwasher broke down !

Nearly forgot... The IMac was repaired this week too!

Why the 3 Rs when, clearly it is not!

This is for Martynsue.....
On the book thread this week, I mentioned a book that I have just read.
The Art Of Racing In The Rain by Garth Stein.
This story is told by the family pet. A dog called Enzo.

It could explain how your dog knows everything!
Enzo could tell the time, he just couldn't speak... due to having the wrong type of tongue!

sound's a interesting read Glasgow lass.

here is another,when out shopping you only find thing's you like when you cannot afford it.go back with the fund's and it is no longer there.
