Home help



I washed. And dried. And folded.

Then, when I left the room, someone assisted with that crucial last step: throwing everything on the floor, in a heap.

It took a while to realise the culprit was right in front of my eyes ...

  20. I'm afraid my sense of humour would leave the building right about that point. I'm such an un-fun-mum!

  21. I'm with Lexi. That drives me insane. Happens way too often in our place. If its not the kids, is the cat, being chased by a kid.
    Grr.
