There are several things in everyday life that just leave me bemused. I don’t think I will ever understand them or be able to explain some of them and I think the way forward is to just accept them. Easier said than done and remain sane though.
Toilet Rolls. Why I am the only one in the house who can change a toilet roll. Do they become suddenly invisible as soon as the little cardboard bit starts twirling on the roll holder? Maybe the cardboard has special powers that can only be seen by adults? Maybe I have superpowers that means only I can see them. I have tried asking my children nicely and even resorted to full blowing a gasket. Both failed. I was tempted to just not change it but I shudder to think if the paper work would just fail to get done. Ewww awful thought.
Instead I shall comfort myself that one day my children will be adults and they will poses their own super powers that enables them to see empty toilet roll tubes.
Duvet Covers – these huge great cumbersome things have the ability to turn inside out inside the washing machine. Something that Houdini would have been proud of. I thought I had it sussed when I had the idea to put the cover in inside out to start with. Ha no, it got smart to that and stayed inside out.
The quickest way round this one was to just adapt and become a fiend at putting a duvet cover on whichever way it comes out.
Socks and washing machines. They say it’s the small things in life that matter but it’s also the small things in life that can annoy the most. Washing socks is hardly rocket science but keeping them paired up is a complete mystery to me. Somewhere between coming of the kid’s feet, through the washing machine and back to the draw, I can manage to lose socks. I can even go for several weeks with success to only return to lost sockitis again.
Its hardly end of the world stuff and they will all pair up eventually it just erks me that I don’t understand where they go.
