Today I have been decluttering craft gear, educational papers, old assignments, payslips, recipes saved that I will never use, evidence of divorce etc. I am hoping to reduce four 50L plastic storage tubs down to two. …..please wish me luck.
I found a printed email from 2008 titled ‘The Facecloth’. I don’t know who wrote this but I thought it was funny and worth sharing.
This has to be read, laughed at it and passed on. There is not a Woman alive today who won’t crack up over this!
I was due for a cancer smear with the doctor later in the week. Early one morning, I received a call from the doctor’s office to tell me that I have been rescheduled for that morning at 9.30 am. I had only just packed everyone off to work and school, and it was already around 8.45am. The trip to his office about 35 minutes, so I didn’t have any time to spare.
As most women do, I like to take a little extra effort over hygiene when making such visits, but this time I wasn’t going to ne able to make the full effort. So, I rushed upstairs, threw off my pyjamas, wet the facecloth that was sitting next to the sink, and gave myself a quick wash in that area to make sure I was at least presentable. I threw the facecloth in the clothes basket, donned some clothes, hopped in the car and raced to my appointment.
I was in the waiting room for only a few minutes when I was called in. Knowing the procedure, as I’m sure you do, I hopped up on the table, looked over at the other side of the room and pretended that I was in Paris or some other place a million miles away. I was a little surprised when the doctor said, “My, we have made an extra effort this morning, haven’t we?” I didn’t respond.
After the appointment , I heaved a sigh of relief and went home. The rest of the day was normal – some shopping. cleaning, and cooking. After school when my 7 year old daughter was playing, she called out from the bathroom, “Mummy, where’s my facecloth?” I told her to get another one from the cupboard. She replied ” No, I need the one that was here by the sink, it had all my glitter saved inside it”.
NEVER going back to that doctor, ever !!
