Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

We had a full moon last night too. I love following Mrs Moon's route in the sky. I always tell her how lovely she looks. Nice to see her in the mornings too.

I kid you not ... my foster parents used to (somehow?) attach a human hair across 2 wardrobe doors and if that hair was gone they would assume that one of us kids had been in their wardrobe.
Their own natural daughter was a real tear-away and used to get up to all sorts of mischief.

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

How about 'pull your lugoyle'. I only know one person who said that. :laugh5:

And the one that related to me was 'It's the quiet ones you have to watch'. I was always very quiet.
