Why is it?.....



In everyday life why is it

  • you have just enough time in a morning to do what you have to do when you get up at your usual time, but if you get up 10 minutes later you still manage to do everything? Why not get up 10 minutes later every day?

  • as soon as one thing goes wrong others follow?

  • toothache stops as soon as you get to the dentist?

  • when you’re looking for new shoes or a dress you can never find what you want, but when you’re not looking and you’ve got no money you can find the perfect thing?

  • you can’t do a thing with your hair until the day you’re going to get it cut?

  • when you’re trying to hide a present the person it’s for always walks in?

  • it’s a nicer feeling when the hairdresser washes your hair than when you do it yourself?

  • food always tastes better when it’s cooked for you?

  • when you get back off holiday you just want a bacon buttie and a cup of tea?

  • the item of clothing you most want to wear when you’re in a rush to get out is always in the ironing bag?

  • whenever you’re trying out a new recipe the supermarket doesn’t have that essential ingredient?

  • your nails can be beautiful but as soon as you’re going somewhere special one of them breaks?

  • you can never find that ‘item’ you put away in a safe place?

  • there are more questions than answers?

Alot of "girl only" questions! I do want to know what a bacon buttie is- conjures up many disturbing images for this American....

Maddy said...

Sad but all too true.

Akelamalu said...

Thanks for popping in Palm Springs Savant. I wish I had the answers!

Of course they are girly questions Buffalo - I'm a girl! :) A buttie is a sandwich.

Yep they're all true Maddy, more's the pity.

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

Catch said...

great questions! And why is it if you pop into a store to pick up one thing and you have no make up on and your hair is a mess you run into a million people that you know!!!

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Bee x

Oh yes that always happens to me too Catch :(

CG said...

Very true!!

Akelamalu said...

Queenie said...

A buttie is a cob not a sandwich or as you say up North a bap!!!
I ask these questions everyday, why when in the bath do visitors call, why Akale why.
Call you in a few days.

Miss Understood said...

I may have to disagree with one of those, Ak. Did you ever taste my husband's cooking? :)

I think it's all to do with something called Sod's Law, Akela.

Flowerpot said...

Elween said...

"food always tastes better when it’s cooked for you?"

Dave said...

Skittles said...

Oh I can identify with so many of those!!! Love the Christmas music. :)

Akelamalu said...

Queenie m'dear, up here in God's own country (Lancashire) a buttie is a sandwich - that's two slices of bread! Talk to you later. x

Oh dear, was it bad Miss U?

Did you swear Tisha?

Spot on Cream!

Thanks Flowerpot x

Oh poor Aunt Lucy, and poor Uncle Hong Elween.

Cheers Dave. :)

OH I'm glad you like the music Skittles, and it's good to see you out and about. :)

Dumdad said...

The one about nails is so true...(not)

(I like the music too)

Misty Dawn said...

This is a GREAT post and SO VERY true! ALL of them are SO true, and we could add so many more LOL

If you have some time, could you pop over to my blog and leave me some feedback on my "I Have An IDEA" post? I'd really love to have your input.

Akelamalu said...

You had me going there for a minute Dumdad I thought you painted your nails! :) Glad you like the music. x

Oh yes, there's lots more Misty, you could start your own list. I'll be over shortly.

TopChamp said...

the 1st one doesn't work for me! If I get up 10 mins late I leave late... and arrive late too.

(something that happens fairly often actually)

TopChamp said...

p.s. a buttie would be a sarnie to me too.

Anndi said...

The dentist thing is the same with whatever weird clanky noise the car's been doing that it stops doing when you take it to the garage and the guy looks at you like you're a silly girl...

ugh!

Well, I am silly, but really it did make the clumpity clank whirrrrrr sound... really!!

la bellina mammina said...

true, true, true... but what's a bacon buttie??

julia said...

'You can never find that ‘item’ you put away in a safe place?'

elena jane said...

too true...but isn't that sod's law or whatever....i hate it!! ;)

Little Wing said...

Great list!!!!!!

Akelamalu said...

You mean you're always late Topchamp? And you're a buttie girl too? :)

Oh yes that's so annoying Anndi, make you look a right idiot :(

Bella A bacon buttie is two slices of bread packed full with bacon - Yummy!


I've yet to meet anyone that can find the thing they put away in a safe place Julia!


YEP Sod's Law Elena Jane.
