Follow Friday Four Fill-In Fun! Phew!

Posted on

Ooooh! I’ve found another blog-hop! This one is hosted by Hilary on Feeling Beachie. Every Friday she posts four statements with blanks for us to fill-in our own answers. Take a trip over there; Hilary posts some great stories about Alex the cat!

1 Over the years I have had so many… men. Nah, not really! Only joking! I’ve had so many irons. Seriously! I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but they keep catching fire on me! There’s a bang, a flash and a foot of flames licking its way over me, the clothes and the ironing board cover! Honestly I get through about six a year!

2. It drives me crazy… when people let their dogs jump all over you. I’ve just come back from walking my mutt and I’m plastered in three different sets of doggy paw-prints. I love dogs, but please! These jeans were clean on a couple of hours ago! Grizzle, grump!

 It was wet and muddy at our local country show

 3. Every time I walk into the house, I… run upstairs for a pee!  Half the time I swear I don’t even need one, it’s just become automatic: key in the lock, open the door, oh my God!  Need to wee!  Need to wee! And if one of the boys is in there, enjoying a  leisurely dump, then we’re all in trouble: ‘Hurry up! Get out! I need to pee! Oh, pleeeease hurry up! I’m an old woman and I’m nearly incontinent! Just push and go, for goodness’ sake! Pleeease!’

4. Right before I jump into bed, I… check the alarm and make sure I’m all prepared for a good snuggle – slobby socks on, check;  hot cup of tea, check; couple of biscuits to dunk, check; good book on the bedside table, check. It’s no wonder I can’t find a man…

 Well, that was fun, if a little embarrassing…  😉

  1. Hey, go link up at Beachies now!!

    OMG, you’re a riot! Especially with the peeing! You need to do those Kegel exercises. Tighten those peeing muscles!

    Yeah, I hate when dogs jump on me too.

    Irons? What’s an iron. OH, you press clothes with it so they look all sparkly and new? Nope, don’t use it. I nearly forgot that I even owned one.

    • You’re so right – I really need to do something with those pesky muscles! 🙂

      The iron thing was probably misleading – it should have read ‘I used to go through six irons a year; aboutf ive years ago I got fed up with singed forearms and stopped ironing altogether – now I just tumble dry those nasty creases away!

  2. Thanks for joining! I cracked up at your first answer… LOVE it! I always make sure to pee before I leave the house, even if I don’t have to, and even if I am only going to be gone for 5 minutes!

    IRONS? Really, Tiny? That’s what you came up with? I love you dearly, but I’m going to be honest with you here. I was soooooo hoping to read something a little more, uh, scandalous! 😉 At least you’re well pressed.

    • Lol! I’ll work on the scandal for the next part! 😉

      And the worst thing? I actually gave up ironing about five years ago! So now, there are no excesses in my life 😦 🙂

  4. I love it! You are so truthful and so funny…I can really relate to that last one…I don’t always comment, but I always enjoy!


  5. Hi, Nice to meet you! The iron answer is a riot. Maybe you buy a steamer! LOL
    Have a great weekend!

    • Hi Deborah, I did come for a visit, but my cookies were disabled (or something…) and I couldn’t leave a comment. Loved the photo – generations of girls!

      Thanks for coming by!
