It was me!! You couldn't make it up! (Well obviously, someone did....)
While painting the fence why not do your hair as well (autumn gold) ?
If ever you are stroking lions or tigers, make sure that you rub their fur the way it lies naturally. If you rub it the 'wrong' way, it tends to irritate them.
When coming out of the loft always remember to leave the light on when you close the hatch. You can turn it off when you go back up there in 8 months time and then look forward to a lower electricity bill.
Carpets last a lot longer and keep their looks if you keep them rolled up in your garage.
When using a landline, always remember to "hang up" properly. It's most annoying to discover the two minute chat with one's elderly mother has racked up over 8 hours.
Never throw away old paint pots or aerosols. One day, when you’ve gone, your offspring can enjoy trying to dispose of them.
Make sure you don't throw away biodegradable carrier bags. It's so much more fun to watch them disintegrate into a billion flakes before your eyes.
Not when I have put a dozen of them in the cupboard under the kitchen sink and then discovered them a year or so later.
The biodegradable plastic wrapped around mail that you've kept in a 'to be dealt with at some point' pile for far too long makes an impressive amount of unexpected confetti when you try to go through the post to decide if anything is worth reading.
Always leave elderly anglers to peg down their umbrellas and forget how far out the ropes are set when they are organising their rods.
A genuine hint!
A plastic milk bottle top makes an excellent make-shift plug.
Discovered by accident, but it's held the water for an hour.
Bumped up by popular request.
Unfortunately the best parts of the thread have been trimmed away by TES.
The best tip I can offer today is to switch the kettle on at the wall as well as on the kettle to enjoy a much nicer cup of tea.
A plastic milk bottle top placed in a stream makes an excellent Katanga Canyon type theme park ride for ants.
Spending hours reading threads here successfully diverts you away from report writing.
I am not very good at ironing. It takes me some time to realise the iron isn’t turned on.
Thank you lilachardy.
