How / why does the grease mark / stain on your trousers / top, which was enormous while you were wearing them / it manage to disappear completely when you are seeking to treat it pre-wash :? (But reappear after the wash if you give in and leave it :mrgreen:

    I have no answer - I specialise in spilling really messy food like curries and pasta sauce because they are easily seen later. :wink: Mr DD's area of expertise is fat and grease. :roll: DD

    Why, when I check the washer thoroughly after each wash, do I still occasionally find a black sock in with the white wash?

    Why is light-coloured dust attracted to dark objects and dark-coloured dust attracted to light objects?

    Why does my husband always put the soft fruit and bread at the bottom of the bag then pile the heavy veg, tins and bottles on top?

    Why is he always surprised when it's squashed?

    Where do all the biros go?

    Why does it always rain after I've cut my grass, making it grow again before I've had the chance to enjoy it?

    Still on the subject of rain, why does it always rain as soon as I light my chiminea? ( even if I haven't just cut the grass)

    Who drinks that half bottle of wine, I'm sure is in the fridge, and I've been looking forward to all day?

    Sorry Sticky, I've just looked, and I think I have all the biros on the table next to my chair :oops:

    I can handle biros disappearing. Wine would be altogether different.

    As for rain, you may probably blame my husband. He calls watering the lawn his rainmaking ceremony. It rarely fails. The other week he was actually winding up the hosepipe when the first massive drops fell.

    Forget the biros, where do all the teaspoons go?

    Slosh, I solved the mystery of my missing teaspoons, when I saw my daughter empty her lunchbox into the kitchen bin. In went a snack wrapper, an empty yogurt pot, and one of my teaspoons! She closed the lid and went to the sink to wash her lunchbox without a thought!
    She did buy me some new spoons though.

    I don't know the answer to how/why, but if I can be bothered (which isn't very often) I run a very rough bit of tacking stitch round the little offender.

    ..why is it that even though I rarely go out of my front door, and my neighbours hardly ever do either (mostly retired and not exactly in & out all day), they always pick the same minute as me, however random the time?

    My husband has mislaid three white shirts. Apparently this is my fault but I deny all knowledge because I know what I've washed and ironed. I accept that I have form on losing items of his clothing (a missing jumper was found after eighteen months or so in the cool box, where it had been hurriedly stuffed when unexpected visitors arrived) and I found a missing duvet cover stuffed at the back of my wardrobe but I have not lost his shirts.

    Why does it always rain when your windows have been cleaned? DD

    Of course it's your fault. As he, presumably, doesn't wash, dry or iron them.... :roll:

    As for windows - why also, does the sun always shine when they're filthy?

    Where does snot come from? Some hayfevery mornings I wake up dripping with the stuff.

    And why does it always rain when you've just had your car washed?
