Mad cat ladies and official form filling....

I have a feeling that it is not good for me to think. Thinking should be banned except when you are being nice, feel in a great mood or need to drive safely, otherwise it is an overated pastime.
What gets achieved when you think? Nothing because you are too busy thinking and thinking can lead you down some very strange alleys if you don't keep it firmly in check.
There you are minding your own busienss driving back home from school and the next thing you know you are envisaging your life as a lonley old woman wearing clothes riddled with cat fleas and being known as the mad cat woman in the village, all because you extrapolated what might happen if you forget to sign a school outing form. It can be MOST disconcerting! It's not as if I have that many cats...
So how did I get from school outing form to mad cat lady living on my ownsome? Weeeelllll....by failing to sign said form child did not go on outing scarring him for life and resulting in label as bad mother. As a bad mother one of course would expect also to be a bad wife leading understandably to husband swapping defunct wife nos 1 for superior model that works better and doesn't forget basic things like school forms. Since known as Bad mother children would live with father and only occasionlly be forced to visit bad mother for form's sake before abandoning all pretence at age of majority. Bad mother would seek soalce in the feline form etc etc
Now I had better get that form filled in....

Tattie, that is so funny - I love your blog, mainly because I can identify with it - you're only dreaming 'mad cat woman' - I'm reality. xx

Sadly, that is EXACTLY how my head works too.....maybe we could live together. I'll bring my cats....

Don't forget to pick up the children from school after you fill out all the forms.
That makes it in The Really Bad Mother Book too.

Or - aforesaid child needs to practice forging your signature - call it a survival skill. (hide your cheque book...)

Blimey Tattie - stop blogging and sign the damn form...you're future clearly depends on it!

If a delay in signing forms leads inexorably to cat fleas and destitution , you'd better leave some space under that bridge for the rest of us .

It's your creative imagination in overdrive! I just have to do something a little bit wrong before the implications come roaring into my head and before I know it, life as I know it is over!

mollygolver - sometimes reality and virtuality collide a bit just hope everyone can keep up!
Lou - Gosh then there will be two that really will get the village talking...no there's an idea!!!
Mother Hen - Grief someone didn't really do that did they?! Though I fear it really is the sort of thing I could do...better double check where the boys are when I get in the car just in case!
veryanniemary - noooo he's far too cheeky and it could land us in all sorts of trouble esp if he gets hold of my cheque book!

Go on you know you want to...
