Never Mind The B0770cks...

Somebody stitch up my mouth.

My childs tender ears can no longer cope with the words that come out of it, and Martha also seems to find the things I say lately are not the words she wants to hear. Therefore it's either stitch my lips, or cut out my tongue. I opt for the lips, because at least that way it's reversible if anyone decides I'm worth listening to again.

For example, yesterday morning we did our weekly grocery shop and I was putting various things away in the fridge. I was trying to be quick because we only had a few moments before we had to leave for swimming, so time was of the essence and I felt rushed. I had a pack of single fruit juice cartons which we give to Audrey from time to time, and these were tightly packed with a cardboard wrap around the six smaller cartons which I wanted to remove. Why things have to be packed and then over packed in such a way I don't know - it's such a waste, but that's a rant for another time!

Anyway, as I unwrapped the cartons, the cardboard outer sort of gave way, and all the little cartons of juice tipped out over the floor in a heap on top of all the other foods that needed to be put in the fridge. So much for trying to be quick and organised about it! In my annoyance I simply blurted "Oh bollocks!" - at the exact same moment Audrey came scurrying into the room!

She looked at me, looked at the mess on the floor and uttered "Oh bollocks!" with the same tone and pitch as my expletive!

It's the first time this has happened to me with a word unsuitable for consumption by a 2 year old, so I tried to back pedal with words like "Balderdash" and "Bother". It seemed to eventually do the trick, but I suspect the damage is done and she'll be running around the childminders tomorrow shouting "Oh Bollocks" at the top of her voice.

Of course I shall deny everything!

Also, does anyone know anything about this?
It's like online share dealing for blogs! I have no idea how it works, but it looks cool.

Comments:
Um - maybe I'm stupid -- but what does "oh bollocks" mean? I've never heard it.
 
It only gets worse...
