Crafty's Blunders and Mishaps...Useless Housewife Tips !

It's funny how a random tweet, and poking a little bit of fun at yourself can inspire a giggle, and spark an idea for a "silly" blog post list...and how a "cheeky" response to that tweet is all you need to set that post in motion ! This is exactly how this post came about, and how from a simple tweet an idea can grow.

Today's blog post is proudly brought to you by "Crafty's Useless Homemaker Tips".
A list of my "housewife" mishaps, that was inspired by a wonderful friend in the "Twitterverse".

"T", this is for you.
Sit back and have a giggle at my expense :)
  • When ironing, it's probably a good idea to turn the iron on before you start. Not when your half way through the basket !
  • To cook dinner, it helps to defrost the meat AND turn the oven on.
  • The washing wont dry unless you remember to peg it out. It sure doesn't smell very nice if left to fester in the machine, especially in a QLD summer !! 
  • Cars require fuel....
  • Do NOT forget how many children you have....on a few occasions I may, or may not have left a child behind bad mother moment
  • A pair of socks do not belong in the freezer, and toothpaste does not belong in the laundry.
  • When hubby sends you to Bunnings for a worm farm, don't aimlessly wonder the aisles looking for a "freeze dried" packet, they do not come in "Sea Monkey" form. (Who knew ?)
  • Don't forget to remove the plastic from cheese slices, plastic cheese is not real nice !
  • Don't drive away from the kids school with their bags in the boot of your car, they may need them, and their lunch during some point in the day.
  • When an article of clothing says "Do NOT put in dryer" it's a safe bet not to !
  • Make sure both feet are wearing the same kind of shoe.
  • Do NOT attempt to colour your hair after a few glasses of wine. You may end up the colour of Barney the Dinosaur.
  • Check that your skirt is not tucked in your underpants when leaving a public toilet shame
  • When going to a Theme Park, don't wear a low cut top, the ride camera may just take your photo at the "wrong" time (if you know what I mean) 
  • Boil the jug before you pour that much needed coffee !!
     and finally, the one tip that I need to take notice of, the one I need to remember !!!!!!
     Drum roll please ........
  • PJ's are not appropriate attire for the school run !! You may just get caught !! WHOOPS...
These are of course not all the mishaps that I have had/done, and I am positive that there are many more ahead of me !! 
Hopefully just like me, you have all had a giggle at my expense, and maybe by just giving this post a glance, I have been able to bring a smile to your day :)
Thanks "T" for giving me this idea, I hope that you enjoyed the "silly" read xxx


Summer is just around the corner bringing with it long lazy days by the pool, backyard BBQ's with family and friends and the return of ...
