    OCD Anyone?

    Okay I know this term is branded about a bit these days but I am wondering what it means to you? I reckon mine has become worse as I have got older. I do a lot of the usual stuff, I like to be neat and tidy, put things in rows, stack things like soldiers in the airing cupboard. Some other examples. 1. Can't walk on the pavement cracks, thankfully I draw the line (pardon the pun) at cobbles. For some reason these are not a problem. 2. I don't like food mixed on my plate, for example beans on toast is actually beans AND toast. If somebody stacks the fried egg on top of something, I can't eat it. No clue why. 3. I buy new pillows every 8 weeks. Marks and Spencers saw me coming. I still bought new ones today despite the fact that I am leaving UK in less than 4 weeks. The old ones look brand new, as do the other 8 sitting in the garage waiting to go to the tip. :eek: Millie x

    Strange, Weird Habits.

    Come on fess up, we all have them. The little things that we all do, for whatever reason. Some may be annoying to others, let alone ourselves:biglaugh:. I guess you could say they are superstitions, but I think they may be some other 'habit' that we have picked up along the way. If possible give your reasons why you may have this habit. I'll start, yes, weird I agree, but I can't sleep at night if I miss 'something', my worst habit is: I will NEVER, EVER leave anything as a singular. I'm talking chips, tins of beans, cigarette in a packet, tea bags, one veggie left on the plate, biccys in the packet, most things really, well, 'practical' things anyway. If the kids leave one chip I have to cut it in half, one ciggy, I have to smoke it. Told you it was weird, but I hate anything being left by itself, must get lonely I think, :biglaugh::goofy::policeman:. But seriously I reckon it is a deep set memory of mine, nothing I can do about it, it doesn't rule my life, but I just can't bring myself to leave a 'single' item, all lonely and bereft,:embarrassed::embarrassed::biglaugh:. I will perfectly understand if anyone wants to report me to the authorities, I will just have to make sure when I am locked up I have more than one crayon with me.:biglaugh: Cheers Tony.:wink:
