Do Not Disturb!



You see this? I don't know why I made it because it doesn't do sod all. Neither of my children can read well enough to take on board a single word and let's face it, even if they could they'd completely ignore it and waltz on in.

I hang this sign on my bedroom door when I fancy a little mid afternoon nap. Not sure why I think I'm going to get away with it because I never do!

I hang it on my bathroom door when I need one of those long soaks in a hot bath covered in bubbles. I can't lock the door in case we have a 'I NEED a wee' situation so I have to keep my fingers crossed that no one notices I have slipped off...Except that doesn't happen because both my children are of course programmed from birth to sense my want for solo bath times and my Husbands bowel has seemingly been programmed in much the same way.

I've been foolish enough to hang it in the kitchen too. I thought maybe I'd get to sneak a few of those tasty biscuits I'd been eyeing up all day. Fool. You should always wait until bedtime! My children are there in a flash, my homemade sign flying in the air behind them as they rumble their greedy Mother and spoil my secret face stuffing moment.

So you see, I made one Of these signs and I'm not sure why..A part from joining in with the ever fabulous Story Of Mum I guess i was feeling optimistic for the future of my alone time?
What would your sign say? Would anyone take any notice?
