On another thread, (about hijacking threads, if you want to find it) this was suggested as a potential thread title - each post to have nothing whatever to do with the previous one I though that a very good idea, but no-one seems to have taken it up and started one, so here goes. Not a conversation, no sequencing, totally non sequiturs.

Supermarket potatoes are sprouting faster than I can cook and eat them!

Why do things always break down just when the warranty has expired?

My Gdd (nearly 6) wants me to knit 3 outfits for each of her 9 Barbies - a winter, spring and summer one.
And a coat each because they might feel cold out of doors otherwise. 😱

I've been told not to eat yellow snow. Is this unreasonable?

Why, as you grow older, does your hair get thinner but your toenails get thicker?

I like scurtlewumps....

Why did I hate sprouts as a child, but love 'em now??

My dog has a sixth sense. My daughter’s coming today for the first time since lockdown started, and somehow he knows, he’s on full alert, I think he’s waiting for the sound of her car.

Why is it that when you put a new or newly washed garment on that you invariably spill, splash or mark it in some way ?

I have far too many books and not enough space.

Need some rain.

I don’t have any sense of smell in the mornings - it kicks in about noon. Always has!

Foccacia is rumbling away getting kneaded in the breadmaker. I've seen Foccaccia Bread Art on the net and I am tempted to create a flower garden on it, but I think I should stick to rosemary, black pepper and sea salt.

Why does my next door neighbours visiting daughter's dog have such a weird bark? confused

Why do I love to walk around cities but not the beautiful countryside outside my door 🚪?

Were Bill and Ben ever Flowerpot Boys?

Why does it rain when I have just watered the garden?

Why is the foam on a bubble bath always cold?

grandMattie Sun 18-Apr-21 13:53:27


Why does it rain when I have just watered the garden?

Or when the windows have just been cleaned?

The trouble with this thread is that what comes into your mind to post is usually put there by the previous post. There must be a great hole there waiting to be filled.

Why is every seventh wave bigger than the rest?

I stubbed my big toe 3 months ago and the nail turned navy blue. It fell off yesterday( the nail not the toe)

I’ll spare you any photographic evidence.
