You couldn't make it up...
« on: 21.03. 2010 21:05 »
Yesterday afternoon, my wife made a very unusual foray into my shed to fill up the watering can from the tap in there. I wasn't in residence at the time.

Over dinner last night she shamelessly accused me of being anally-retentive over the way I organise things in my shed. "I mean" she said, "what sort of a man organsies his fasters according to the time of year..." I had absolutely no idea what she was talking about until she explained that she had noticed a tin marked "spring washers" sitting on my workbench!

This sounds like a poor joke, but I can assure you that it actually happened and she was dead serious. What am I to do with her?

Wait till she finds the "Shrink Wrap" and "Spare Nipples"!! ;)

And don't ask her if she's seen the "Foot Pump".....she might think you've got "Flat Feet". *smile*

I fully expect to get home from work today to find her up to her elbows in potting compost with the contents of my box marked 'bulbs'  *conf*

 *idea* Hmm, a bulb tree. How convient.

Pick them early for headlamps, leave them on to mature until red for rear lights. Somewhere in between you will get indicators.
