Who wants to guess my third mess-up today.

They say everything comes in threes. I went to put the washing on this morning and just stopped my self putting the soap powder in the dishwasher.

Washing is going away merrily and I thought I would try a new recipe for carrot cake cookies. They are in the oven, I am clearing up, only to find the flour is still on the side.

You will decide that a bit of dusting is needed and generously squirt your furniture with hairspray.

Parsley3 that reminds me of my partially sighted stepfather. He was complaining that the fly spray was not working. He was spraying them with Lynx deodorant.😁

I have a painful shoulder. A few weeks ago I rubbed in a pain relieving gel. As I was replacing the cap on the tube I realised that I had used toothpaste!! grin

Reminds me of my mum, she was making a pot of tea....the caddy was empty so she put quarter of pound in the caddy and filled it with water! Then found another quarter of tea and poured it into the teapot and filled that! After that she had to go shopping she had run out of tea!

I had piles a while ago, very glamorous complaint!

Grabbed the tube of what I thought was G........s, a well known brand of treatment, and applied it to my nether regions.

Oh, it stung! Never mind, I thought, obviously doing some good.

On checking later, realised I had inadvertently applied V......l, a well known brand of treatment for backache, muscle pain etc.

The piles improved though!
