Listography ..5 Reasons I Know I'm a Mother of 4

1. EVERY time we leave the house as a whole family, I automatically default to "Sheepdog Setting, " ... I would SO win One Man and His Dog if only it was called One Woman and Her Four Children.
*Whistles*
*Waves Umbrella above head*
*Shouts a bit*

2. The washing machine never, ever, EVER stops washing except for the bits when I'm mending it .... I AM the Washing Machine Whisperer..... because it's collapsed of nervous exhaustion (again).
Shh some weekends, I actively encourage Pyjama Days in a bid to lower the washing pile *hangs head.* (Please note, this never works. Having investigated thoroughly I have reached the conclusion that dirty washing is capable of breeding independently).

3. I thoroughly believe one of the greatest iniquities of mankind is the "Family Ticket"  Ha! Really, just Ha! ...... *grinds teeth.*

4. Buying Christmas presents in the January sales like an organised person. Finding a hiding place so impenetrable as to outwit the machinations of the Fearsome 4. AND then forgetting doing that and panic-buying a whole load more in December only to find everything bought in January on Boxing Day. *Sigh*

5.KNOWING that the most ridiculous thing I ever said (and I've said some damn stupid things) is; "Well, another one isn't going to make THAT much of a difference." .......

*wibbles insensibly .... opens the gin*




This week's Listography theme is "Five Reasons I Know I'm A..." brought to you from an original idea by Fab 40 Foibles. Check out the other Listography entries at Kate Takes 5 lovely blog

  1. This is the first time I have come across your blog and it really made me laugh, will add myself as a 'follower'. I know what you mean about the laundry hence the name of my blog (Overflowing Laundry Basket), I have 5 children. Your children are beautiful but I guess you already know that!

  2. Brilliant list - I can totally relate to buying Christmas pressies early, putting them somewhere 'safe' then forgetting about them too! Glad it's not just me!

  3. I do that with xmas presents - every year! I thought my washing pile/mountain was big with a 10 yr old that seems to think an item of clothing that falls off the hanger in the wardrobe warrants a wash and a 3 month old but 4 of them - argh!

    1. I see your 10yo and raise you two 16yo who put entirely clean clothes back in the washing because they "can't be bothered" to put them away, sad but true :)

  4. This list is genius...the picture in my head of you herding the children yelling 'Come by'...hilarious! I've never been so organised that I've bought Christmas pressies in Jan...only the ones I am late buying for from the Christmas that just happened!!!
