It has been some time, but there is a new meme going round that I saw on teragramm double_dutchess and deborahw37 so thought I would snag as I am trying to catch up with LJ and keep my journal more active.

No.

Just redecorated mine ... I think the only thing I would change is to ban dust!!!

Clean ... I so rarely use it but did all my cups in my place with a good bleach soak, then left them in a hot wash when I came to Mum & Dad's. I love strong tea, and it stains the mugs

7. Do you have a can of mushrooms in your pantry?
Yes - great for adding to stews, and mince.

9. What is on top of your refrigerator?
My microwave.


Im glad I'm not the only one - it seems perfectly normal to me, too.

It seems the obvious place to put it ... otherwise it takes up useful counter space.

I enjoyed reading your answers! I agree tea stains are the worst (and the dishwasher is no good at dealing with them).

Btw, it's Double Dutchess with a "t" (I'm Dutch, you see) -- the Double Duchess with proper spelling is a totally different person :-)

It's good to do these memes ... both to learn more about friends, but sometimes I learn more about myself.

Edited ... sorry about that.
11th-Aug-2015 08:32 pm (UTC)
I always like reading them, and from this one I've also learned new things like the differences between closets and wardrobes and the secrets of Comet and Soft Scrub :-)

And no problem about the duchess/dutchess confusion; it's my own fault for trying to make a stupid pun that looks like a spelling mistake!

Thank you ... that makes sense now.

Cute puppy! Whose tail looks like it was added on later. *g*
11th-Aug-2015 08:06 pm (UTC)
LOL - hadn't noticed that before ... so true.
10th-Aug-2015 04:50 pm (UTC)
I hope you're feeling a bit better?
11th-Aug-2015 08:00 pm (UTC)
This chest infection is really hanging around, sadly. Thanks for asking.
