I find ...

... that washing the kitchen floor on my hands and knees using a cloth is preferable to using a mop (I can get in the corners and see all the dirt without putting my glasses on).

... that using brown wrapping paper for presents is preferable to buying special wrapping paper for different occasions (only one roll in the cupboard so saving space).

... that wearing stretchy pants is preferable to wearing trousers or jeans with a waist band (ahhhh). 

... that sitting on the floor is preferable to sitting on a chair (just me, I guess).

... that mopping up my plate with a piece of bread means I don't have to wash the plate (just joshing).

... that blowing one's nose on kitchen paper towel is preferable to blowing it on loo paper or tissues (as it's thicker and bigger so lasting longer).

... that sneezing without putting my hand over my mouth is much more satisfying to me (not to anyone else though).


PS - if you don't possess stretchy pants do not, repeat DO NOT, buy any. Your waistline will never forgive you. :)


  1. I wear a lot of jeggings because of the elasticated waste and much quicker to get down when you are dying for a wee ;-) xx

  2. I thought it was just me who washed the kitchen and bathroom floors on my hands and knees. So satisfying seeing a clean floor.

  3. I like to mop my plate with bread if I've had a tasty stew or something similar. (Not in public though, but I'm often sorely tempted - Seems such a waste to leave it on your plate when it's so tasty)

  4. Always elastic waists. Cannot get back up if I go hands and knees. Hey ho.

  5. I prefer to do the floor by hand, it's far superior to a mop. I am buying jeans with Christmas vouchers soon, they do make you watch what you eat!

  6. I love the last one! I do wish I could do the kitchen floor on my knees, but I have one bad knee. I do the bathroom floor by hand for the very reason you mention too. As for the dish cleaning thing, a dog does a fine job too!

  7. I am a 'get down on hands and knees' to clean the floor person - never got on with mops. Not only do I have stretchy jeggins but for work I wear stretchy straight skirts so much more comfortable to sit in all day.

  8. Lol, I think after this cast stint all I will be able to wear are very loose fitting dresses and pants or skirts with stretchy waist bands.

    God bless.

  9. I wash my floor by hand ever since the mop broke. It doesn't take me any longer [small house mind] and it gives a far better finish.

  10. I agree with the wrapping paper, but I can't for the life of me remember where I put the big roll of brown Kraft paper (that's what it's called here in Canada and the US)
