Here we go again....

Remember a few months ago when I came clean and admitted to my tendency of stocking up on random items inadvertently? Remember the 5, no make that 6, sacks of flour I showed you? You do, don't you. Well, it seems to be happening again.

I don't know if it's because things have been hectic around here with everyone settling in from the summer holidays and getting ready for back to school. Or maybe it's because I'm getting older and the grey matter just isn't functioning as well as it once did.

It could be either of them really. Or both. I suspect, however, that I know the source of the relapse and I'm pretty certain that most psychiastrists would agree. And it has nothing to do with either of the above. No, it's much more straight forward than that. No deep analysis or testing necessary.

You see, in my mind, what you're about to witness is quite simply the after-effect of attempting to simultaneously potty train a toddler and house-train a puppy. But I'm no expert. I'll let you be the judge.

I present to you the result of today's grocery shop..... *cue drum roll please*


48 rolls. Count them. 48 rolls of toilet paper. All purchased today. (Online shop of course. I'm not that daft. Yet.)

So, if there's ever a shortage in the near future, you all know where to head. But I'm not sure I'll share. I wouldn't want to run out.

Mind you, I don't stock up on these things on purpose either... it just seems to happen. Even the man who delivered my grocery order was laughing and shaking his head. Oh well.... Got to be remembered for something I guess.

LOL Well don't feel too bad. We buy our tissue at Costco, which is a super warehouse. Hubby doesn't like for us to have less than 20 rolls at any given time.

We always buy 48 rolls packages of toilet paper, but that's because they become cheaper then :P
