The wit and wisdom of my Mum

On stealing things from hotels:
"Sampling the soap/shampoo etc
is very sensible and can see you through for many weeks."

You seem to be suffering from comment deficit lately, Tim. Let me correct that.


Maria said...

TimT needs another lemon butter post to keep the commenters coming.

If I send you a mango mousse recipe I could help remedy that.

Baked to a crisp octopus intended for salad and soggy risotto and I can't believe it's not spaghetti actually I can believe it's anything but spaghetti hey why is the spaghetti tin empty surely you didn't make that out of spaghetti recipes are also a specialty of mine.

Happy to send your way if they will stimulate comments!

Deduction: your mother has extremely short hair and a tiny body, yes?

Alternatively, she bathes only weekly?

BTW: it's not theft to take home the leftovers.

On the other hand, I have always been challenged by the morality of taking the assorted bathroom provisions if one hasn't opened and commenced usage while at the hotel.

Cow offers the following Travelling Hint:

Leave money during your hotel stay for the maid (not on the last day when you check out, for those rooms are checked and any tips confiscated by, the supervisor).

The bounty of your excess coffee packages, shampoos, lotions, etc. generously left thereafter in your hotel room will be exceeded only by the maid's gratitude for a little cash to spend.

Short hair, yes...

Sometimes it seems those little packets of thingos you get at hotels are too much for one slice of toast, not enough for too... so it's very easy to accidentally-on-purpose not finish a packet, or several packets.

Mango Mousse recipe - YES PLEASE!

Caz said...

Mango mousse toiletries and cosmetics: that would fly as a business concept.

Maria said...

If I made mango mousse soaps they would be the liquid soaps, caz.

Caz said...

Liquid soaps, liquid body wash, all on trend Maria!

Of course, there would have to be a mango fake tan product in the range.
