Rambling Confessions of My Mind

I need a PA – so that she or he will turn the oven off when I leave it on and smoke the house out, this person could also respond to emails seeing as I am always forgetting and post mail that sits in my handbag and gets covered with crumbs and other debris until it is long overdue to be sent

I also require some self-control – so I don’t maim myself on a toasted sandwich – like I did last week, actual blister on my lip! Does any one else have trouble with ‘wait it’s hot’ or is that just me and my kids? I could also do with self-control when it comes to itchy tags – I wait until the itch makes me so enraged I rip the tag out – no dainty trip to the ladies with a pair of scissors for me – no I rip that thing out and usually make a whole in the garment at the same time – guess this is why I should continue to make my own label free clothes. Self-control could also spare me  from multiple trips to the pantry when I am bored, tired, …..insert reason here.

I’d also be partial to a finisher – this person would complete tasks – pretty much everything I start I find trouble finishing – those last few dishes? check, hanging out that last load of washing? check, that enormous half-folded pile of laundry? check, mending – do not get me started! Mending? who wants to mend or hem or sew that almost fallen off button back on? Who are you and when can you move in to my house? …. there are also half written thank you cards, half tidied piles, did I mention the laundry that needs folding – just follow me round and finish those tasks I started all at the same time – that’s me not you Mr/Ms Finisher – you can carefully work through each task one at a time and complete them properly, that is why you are in my life.

I could also do with some socks… yawn,  The Atlas put one of mine on the fireplace to dry it the other day and it melted so now I only have 3 and a half pairs…..I do hate socks – not the actual socks themselves (although there are some furry man-farmer socks The Atlas owns that I think are very, very ugly – not that it stops me wearing them in the cold) it’s the washing them, hanging them out and pairing them – it takes me to a very sad place. Really – I wait until there are no socks left in the house and then I finally wash them and it uses every peg and every ounce of my will to hang those suckers out…. Bounce even has a friend who has started wearing mismatched socks to be like him – he doesn’t realise it isn’t intentional.

So I just need a PA, a healthy dose of self-control, someone to sort out my sock issues and a finisher for Christmas, I could also probably do with someone to sort out my grammar, use of commas, over-use of exclamation points, dashes and ellipses….

I know it’s a good 20+ weeks away but never too early to put in your requests right?

What’s on your Christmas wishlist?

Congratulations to Jess B the winner of the Trade Aid Scarf – you’ll be hearing from me soon!

  1. Maybe we should come and live with you guys when we get back, not M&P! What does this job pay? 😉

    1. Love and a steady flow of calorie filled baking…. you keen???

  2. Not my scene. I don’t like to finish either.

  3. haha this is hilarious… umm just on the grammer front, it should be ‘hole’ not ‘whole’ in the paragraph about itchy tags… hmm perhaps I should apply, then I may be able to afford one myself. I have piles of things to be mended, which really don’t take long, but I have a need to procrastinate (pretty embarrassing since my blog is called ‘MEND and make new!’) I’m pretty good with the socks though I pair them together on the line and don’t get many strays that way!

    1. and there I go and misspell ‘grammar’! sheesh!

      1. Ha ha Jenny that is so funny – unfortunately mine seem to seldom arrive to the washing basket in pairs so the hanging them out in pairs is tricky too!!! Thanks for the heads up on the hole/whole thing – I do know the difference I just seem to type without thinking! (I suspect my mother spends much time hanging her head for shame when reading my blog!!!)

  4. Haha, thats me! I ALWAYS forget to send mail and usually find it at the bottom of my handbag all wrinkled. Sometimes it even has a stamp on it and I still haven’t posted it!
    I gave myself a hi-5 last week for writing AND actually posting 5 letters all at once. I couldn’t believe it!

    1. well done you 5 letters I am IMPRESSED!

  5. Ha, love this kind of stream of consciousness writing!
    I am ALWAYS burning myself on toasties – because I don’t want the bread to get soggy from sitting on the plate too long.

  6. I simply LOVE this post
    Nice to know I’m not the only one who is forgetful! I also burn my mouth on hot pastries.
    And this morning I found out I’m not the only one who has half finished projects lying around the place.
    Nice to know that the blogging world isn’t always perfect LOL
