1.  OTHERS leave the Bathroom in a mess

2.  LIGHTS left on inside empty Room

3.  TAPS left running ~ cause waste and distress

4.  Make a Mess ~ but NEVER EVER use a Broom !

5.  Dirty laundry ~ NOT placed in the basket

6.  Toilet Roll is never replaced 

7.  Wasting FOOD when half the WORLD is Starving

8.  Not recycling things that go to WASTE ! 

9.  Leaving dishes in the sink to float

10. Watching Tele ~ hogging the REMOTE !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments please ~ Love BRIAN 🧡🧡🧡


Do the above 10 issues reflect your shared household ?

I moved into my own FLAT 5 years ago and it is pristine !

Mind you ~ I still go to my MUMS every Sunday for Lunch

and I load the dishwasher. My MUM tells MEN are the

worst culprits especially for items 1 to 10.  ANGELA & I

are getting Married @ Easter 2020 ~ So Im looking for a

Bigger Flat to rent a we are uncertain where we want to

live in the Future !  UK ~ New Zealand ~ Spain ??? 

Wherever it is ~ living with Angela will be Heaven as we 

are both Systematic Neat & Tidy ~ Love B & A  🧡🧡🧡

    I still live with family, but I did temporarily lived alone (sort of) while studying a few years ago.
    Regardless, such way of living teaches many thing.

    "Systematic Neat & Tidy"!

    Blessing always~


      THANKS JOKER ~ When doing Scientific Reasearch one has to be very meticulous ! It rubs off intoeveryday life ! Everything in ORDER and an ORDER for everything. When one lives alone yoiu quickly learn the VALUE & COST of everything ! It is a good preparation for budgetting and living within an income when one is MARRIED ! My Friends tell me TWO cannot live as cheaply as one ~ AMEN !

      A fine write B&A. A slight headache coming on, with rather long word there, and you being all systematic! lol.
      Know what you mean though: 'A place for everything, and everything in its place'; but not OCD?

      • ANGELA & BRIAN

        THANKS UNCLE STEVE ~ EXACTLY but NOT OCD. When doing scientific Research one learns to be very very clinical & precise. Pleased you enjioyed the Presentation & another song from your Ticky Tacky ERA !
        WOOF to FOU & YIDO !
        Brian & Angela 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

        We owe it to our own self-respect to keep tidy the places we live in and all our belongings - - very well done as a needed reminder Brian.

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          Thanks FAY very true ! In both our Professions ~ ANGELA & I have to be very organised and keep pristine accounts & records. I guess when we get married ANGELA will run the Household like a Branch of NAT WEST ~ I hope so ! She has offered to do the ACOUNTS and I will be responsible for the maintenance of all the Electronic Gadgets and we will share the Cooking & the Garden ! I teach all my students to be systematic & pristine in their College Work and when they are on Placement. It is essential in Science & Nursing & Catering & Hair & Beauty etc ! Tidy MIND ~ Tidy OFFICE ~ Tidy HOUSE !
          Blessings & love in the SPIRIT
          Love BRIAN & ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡

          Thankfully both my wife and I are both minimalists and extremely tidy - everything is in its place and we repklace anything the old goes straight in the bin or a charity shop. Love the poem.
          Oh and by the way when it was time for our children to go to bed we used to shout at them: 'Bedwards Edwards' and they now say it their children.

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            You LOGO exemplifies neatness & minimilism ! ANGELA has to keep very meticulous records (You know how people love to sue the NHS ~ Scandalous !) and she always makes her clients sign a disclaimer for an EXERCISE REGIME because you cant watch them 24/7. She thinks HIP REPLACEMENT patients are often discharged too early to free up the beds ! Monday ~ OPP Tuesday ~ ZIMMER Wednesday ~ CRUTCHES Thursday ~ UP & DOWN Stairs ~ Friday ~ HOME ! She does Home Visits and they do provide High Chair ~ Perching Stool ~ Raised Loo seat etc etc. My UNCLE (74) has recently had one and he enjoyed the PHYSIO walking him Round the Block . Both he & my Aunt thought he was out PDQ !
            Pleased my LIM jogged your memory ! Not the easiest Rhyme so I was pleased with JEDWARDS ! Limericks need three PERFECT RHYMES in my book !
            Love Peace & Joy
            BRIAN et ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡

            Smokers - Ashtrays full of butts
            Also - Empty bottles, and half full glasses
            And - Snack wrappers decorated the floor
            Youth was lived in different countries and many cities - order kept by gentle house keepers
            Now even the sight of dust is annoying
            The House, My Home

            It’s not the brick and mortar
            Nor the painted walls
            Not the many rooms
            Decorations and all
            It started with just the two of us
            But that was not for long
            The pitter patter of the little feet
            Is what kept us strong
            The giggles and the laughter
            Just some of what we shared
            The trials and tribulations
            Proved that we cared
            It’s the memories of many decades
            That makes - the house, a Home.

            Make your house, your home too.

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              Thanks SURESH ~ Loved your POEM. Because of our Professions ANGELA & I both keep our Flats very pristine ! And I guess our Home (after Marriage) will initially reflect that ! BUT when we start our Family & have a cat and a Play Room etc we both know ~ EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE ! WE have seen this with our FRIENDS ! I agree with you a FAMILY HOME must reflect the FAMILY & Love ~ Joy ~ Peace ~ Laughter & Play are far more important than everything in its place ~ A FAMILY HOUSE must be a HOME ! Over the next 20 years we will LIVE & LEARN !
              Blessings & Peace
              Yours BRIAN & ANGELA 🧡🧡

              Before I left home my parents made sure that I could cook, wash and iron clothes and clean the house. Our home may not be pristine but all is clean and cooking is one of my passions.
