True or false? You decide……….

Choosing a house – the larger the house, the more places there are to lose things in.

Christmas presents – the amount of time that a child plays with their Christmas present is exactly one-fifth of the time it took for the parents to assemble it.

Children’s parties – any child’s birthday party where the number of guests is more than the age of the child whose party it is, will end in disaster.

Cleanliness – cleanliness is next to impossible.

Computers 1 – a computer does what you tell it to do, not what you want it to do.

Computers 2 – if you understand it, it’s obsolete!

Construction – cut it large and kick it into place!

Cooking 1 – once a dish has gone wrong, anything you might add to rescue it will only make it worse.

Cooking 2 – you will always receive the greatest number of compliments for the dish which took the least amount of time to prepare.

Cooking 3 – the more time and energy you put into preparing a meal, the greater the chance that your guests will spend the entire evening discussing other meals they have eaten.

Engines – it pays to turn off your car engine if it will be idle for more than one minute.

Heating by people – ten people will raise the temperature of a medium-sized room by 1 degree per hour.

Juice – do not pour any more juice for your child than the amount you are prepared to wipe up.

Nappies – changing your baby’s nappy will always cause the telephone to ring.
