Bare feet or Wellies?


Hi Guys!

Very Understanding Hubby is a fan of Child Safety Plugs. However, I have a bit of a love/ hate relationship with them. They're not Fluffie friendly. I can never get the stoopid things out. I always break a nail on them and invariably, find myself shoving something, anything, whatever comes to hand, down the back, while I'm busy cussing. (Not sure where Sweet Cheeks gets his Anger Management Issues from.)

Apparently, according to Very Understanding Hubby, ours have a 'clever' feature. If you get another Fluffie Hating Child Safety Plug and insert the pegs from that one, into the holes on the one in the socket, (sounds a bit dodgee to me!) and twist, you can pull the Fluffie Hating Child Safety Plug out safely. Of course, first of all, I have to get a knife to shove down the back of another Fluffie Hating Child Safety Plug so I can get the darn thing out!

So, really, my question is this: Should I vacuum in bare feet or with Wellies on to avoid electrocution?


The beginning of the month means a new Challenge over at Some Odd Girl. Kristy has given us this faberoony Sketch to play with, I love it. Pop over to Odd World to see the gorgeous creations from the rest of The Oddies and get all the prize details...

Good Morning...how cute is your card...totally love it...great take on the sketch...

Debbie said...

Now then Fluffy...First of all I suggest you hoover in "Wood/Wooden" shoes of some sort (prehaps make a pair from a bit of old tree stump!!!) AS I was always told to touch electrics with a wooden spoon!!

When I Supervised at my Playgroup I HAD to have the "Devil" plug things in EVERY socket!!
BUT could NEVER get them out. Do you know what I used to do?
Ask one of my 4 year olds to get it out for me!!!!!! I Know!!

Card is gorgeous, love those papers. Hope you all had a fab Wedding and it all went well. Mrs A said it rained abit, but photo's were taken inside so all was well. Love Debbiexx

Let me tell you a little secret. The Boy Wonder is 12 so we don't really need to have child safety thingies in our plug sockets... but there are still some in the sockets I don't really use because I can't get the b*****s out! Lovin' the card, especially the "happy" colours, which are a beautiful contrast to the dull grey outside. Hugs, Tracey xx

Sweet card ♥

Chris said...

Hiya and I'll to answer your question with a question.........what is a vacuum :D? I do love reading your stories, they bring back memories and funnily enough the clever child barring cupboard door lock latches we bought where sussed at 2.5 and 2 years respectively!!! Please don't force any more knives in the plug sockets or I'll have to come and sort you out! xxx

Jane said...

Pliers, 'Stanleys' Knife (I've borrowed it), chisel & flat-head screwdriver en-route as I scribe! That'll sort you out. Meanwhile wellies are suitable for vacuuming...whatever floats Mr WJ's boat! x

Ali said...

hmmmm,has your hubby got an ulteria motive??? Has he recent asked where certain insurance documents are??? Be afraid...lol...get your wellies on!! Lovely card xxx

Gorgeous summery card, makes me wanna go and grab a frock out the wardrobe and put it on .... thing is frocks and thermals don't look too good together! Love those beautiful flowers. Hugs Jillix

...just Barbara said...

I love the flowers as the border and the buttons on them are darling! Great color too. :D

Amanda R said...

You are so funny! I would be shoving a knife, screwdriver etc down to get them off too! Lovely card, gonna copy the glower across the middle sometime. And my vote is bare feet, it would just look silly to have wellies on and shorts!
