Sshhh! Loose lips, and all that malarky

Let's just all have a nice cup of tea and forget about it.

I think it's fair to say that most women don't always tell their partners everything. I'm sure I am not alone in taking 30 - 50% off of the price of fundamentally everything that I buy, and then can't explain why I have no money left. See the Tesco-no-money-to-pay-scrabbling-around-on-floor-behind-till-for-pennies blog entry.

Sometimes it just makes life easier. There's no moaning, no shouting, no harking back at the past for misdemeanors thought long forgotten. Sometimes it's better to just not say anything at all and everyone's happy.

Could you imagine what someone might say if they knew that you had been out at the shops in the morning, and then maybe later, say 6-ish hours later, your neighbour came to your door to tell you that you had left your car with the rear passenger door wide open and the whole thing unlocked, and a whole bunch of stealable things inside??

I imagine that their first comment is not going to be "Wow! We must really live in a great neighbourhood that nobody has touched a thing.". So I think we should maybe just keep this between ourselves, ok?


  1. Had to chuckle at that! Can we also not mention the time I left the front door open while I went out for two hours?

  2. Won't mention a thing! And yes, I tell my husband that things didn't cost as much as they did. He's usually too busy watching footie or thinking about sheep to actually worry anyway!!

  3. I've been there too - went shopping in Sainsbury and left the rear passenger door of the car wide open. Clearly South Ken is a more trusting neighbourhood than I realised because nothing was missing when I got back 40 minutes later. But ssshhh - don't tell the husband...

  4. I left car window open over night and the key in my front door while I was pregnant, blamed it on the baby brain which also caused me to delete 3 years worth of work off my laptop :-(


You're not going to leave without saying something, are you?
