    We wouldn't have to put hankies up our sleeves if they made women's clothes with pockets!!!

    Although a tissue in a pocket can do just as much damage as one in a sleeve

    Don't believe anyone who says they've emptied their pockets. I turn dark stuff inside out .

    bont forget to check the lint trap
. I could fund a nice lunch out (if anything was open) with all the change recuperated
 definitely better than the paper hankies!

    Apparently the fluff in a tumble dryer's lint trap is excellent for starting fires.   Haven't had one since we gave ours away to a women's refuge so I could have space for a wine rack in the kitchen.  Never liked the feel of tumbled clothes and if you  have a decent spin cycle and an airer who needs one?

    OH used to leave coins in his pockets till they introduced cards for the coffee machines at work.  Now it's golf tees and odd screws.

    Don't let half your kitchen end up in the garden.

    Does anyone else get that? My plates, bowls, scissors, buckets, washing up bowls wind up muddy under a bush. If I can't find a thing, I know it will be in the garden somewhere. :s

    More like my garden ends up in the kitchen: gloves, secateurs, something needed in the front but I got side tracked, mud on the floor.

    Sort of on the same subject, I hate wearing shoes at any time. When I come out of the garden,I step out of them but sometimes it can take a few seconds before I know I'm wearing them and then I slip them off without being aware.
    It's really difficult to find them They could be anywhere.

    "More like my garden ends up in the kitchen:"

    That too.  :D Inside out and outside in. Slugs in the kitchen, bowls in the flower beds.
