Domestic bore

A single friend came over for supper last night. When it was time for her to leave, she pointed out (in a nice way) that I had made the following statements/admissions throughout the evening:

• Economy 7 does have its plus points you know
• Tescos online shopping has changed my life
• Windolene doesn’t work on our windows
• I am so excited about finding the ‘timer delay’ button on our washing machine
• By planning our weekly menu I have seriously slashed our grocery bills
• There are lots of great offers on baby products at the moment
• Our milk consumption has reached astronomical proportions
• I have yet to work out how to use bleach correctly
• Every little helps

Ah yes, but what were her comments like
* Facebook is my life
* Did you know you can buy boyfriend-shaped pillows?
* Who is this Sportacus chappy anyway?

Oh dear. Sounds like she needs a little excitement in her life! Being single doesn't have to be dull you know.

Haha. I would laugh out loud if my sciatica wasn't killing me.

i think when you have spent the evening talking about those topics, the correct use of bleach would be to drink it.

Amazing how life changes when another one comes along.

Hm! You need to worry if that's ALL you talked about. If you did, the cure is easy: try a capuccino and Tatler for vavavoom; Vivaldi for some zest; Jane Austin and Shakespear sonettes for intellectual thrill.

However, if your friend doesn't know her washing machine stuff, and on-line grocery shopping, she'll be in serious trouble!

...and if you haven't yet drunk the bleach, may i just comment on how marvellous the new header is?? Colourful and clearly displaying artisitc flair. Just one question, who is the tramp playing the accordion?

Love it Elsie. Sounds like an evening chez moi. You should come over here and we could compare notes.
