Women

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

I think it only fair, as there is one for men.

1. Keeping men's spending in check when at the garden centre.
2. :wink:
3. Dealing with 'difficult questions' from daughters

5. Telling men that there's "nothing" wrong (you do know the kind of flatly pronounced nothing I mean, don't you?).

Attracting Fairies

Post: #103088 Rachel Squires

17. Attracting Fairies - you know... the ones that don't seem to be around when men are on their own. I think that maybe they are attracted to womens pheromones.....

Like.... the remembering relatives birthdays and buying the presents fairy

or...... the pairing socks fairy

or...... the remembering to get a fresh loaf out of the freezer fairy

or..... the cleaning the toilet fairy

Infact, I seem to attract so many of these elusive creatures in our house that it's a wonder that neither John nor I have ever clapped eyes on one of them. But they must exist....
....mustn't they???? :lol:

One of our standing jokes with some of the scientists I work with - did you have a man look for this, or a woman look? :mrgreen:

No! Because the roll has to go on a certain way round and they always put them on the wrong way round. :(

Ans I know other people care about the way round the toilet roll is so I'm not that strange. :?

Yes, so do I - but nobody apart from me seems to be able to put them on the right way round! :lol:

yes we have those - the laundry fairy.. you just throw your dirty clothes in the washing basket (our fairy refuses to pick up clothes from floor) and tada! they turn up clean and sorted into piles on the bed. our laundry fairy likes to leave the clothes on the bed so that the man in the house notices it actually happend.. and we dont have magic clothes drawers.. :roll:


then there is the bills paying fairy...

we don't have an ironing fairy tho.. male or female.. in fact.. I am not sure where the iron is...

Yeah, we have 'em too - the radiator-bleeding fairy, the cooking fairy, the weeding fairy, the fence-painting fairy, the carrying-the-compost-to-the-greenhouse fairy, the lawn-mowing fairy, the dog-walking fairy and the general odd-job fairy, to name but a few. Thank goodness they're around - whatever would we do without 'em?
