Reason for divorce!


According to my husband, he would use this as a reason to divorce me!! Yes it is I who squeezes the toothpaste from the bottom, leaves the top off and the rest goes dry, then starts a new tube and leaves him to use up the rest.....gross I know!!! This is our bathroom, the kids have their own bathroom...so I can't even blame them!!!

Expected 35 degrees today...off to the pool with the kids!!

Am very excited about Whip Up !!! Starts today!!!

I thought women were supposed to squeeze the tube from the middle. Although with the plastic tubes these days I'm sure it doesn't really matter.

Now, leaving the top off .... that is another matter entirely!!!

You can live at my house any time Shell. My kids do that too. I prefer my toothpaste still squeezeable and not dried out, oh and with the cap on. However since the children and I have seperate bathrooms, I don't care how the toothpaste is left, so long as their teeth are clean.

I do the same thing! Only I flip the top down. It's not closed properly, but it looks closed :)

I love this photo! - pictorial evidence of your 'sins'!

In our house, we both squueze the tube from midway, so it's harmonious. HOWEVER, in the kitchen, my hubby opens new jars of things because he 'can't find' the existing one - hence we will have up to THREE jars of vegemite on the go, for example! (as opposed to three toothpaste tubes!)

Ugh, my husband does that too.

Hehe, oh that rings so true in this house too! I'm hopeless when it comes to little things like that. I'll leave one bit of toilet paper on the roll too, just so I don't have to change it! LOL.

sorry but that is a pet hate of mine. ms*sophie and I share the girls bathroom and the soul mate gets the ensuite (ewwww boys germs) and I am constantly whining at ms*sophie for leaving dribs and drabs of toothpaste out of the tube for me to clean up.
had to laugh at your comment on Flossy's blog about the beach picture !

My husband opens a new tube before the old one is finished because he can't be bothered squeezing what's left up to the top. There were some advantages to the old type tubes...you could roll them up and they'd stay that way. He never uses up all the soap either. But otherwise he's almost perfect (well, that might be stretching it a bit), so I'm not complaining :) My daughter, Kylie would love whip up. I'll have to send her there.
