I'm bored!!

This is how the conversation started.....

Jasper: "Mum, I'm bored" (Dad is away, Mum's house is rubbish, nothing fun to do)
Mum: "Do you want to take the tiles off the wall in the bathroom for me?" (1st stupid mistake!!)
Jasper: "Yeah, OK. Where's the hammer and dust sheets?" (sounds promising)
Mum: "Dust sheets? Blimey. Why do you want dust sheets?" Trick question!! (found dust sheets and hammer)
Jasper: "To protect the floor boards" (Mum VERY impressed, walks down into town for Jose to catch the bus - 2nd stupid mistake)

Phone call from Jasper.

Jasper: " Hi Mum, how are you?" (alarm bells start to ring inside Mums head.) "Were you planning to plaster the wall?"

Tiles off, wall off, lovely bricks though.

Part of window sill missing..... (can you see the dust sheet, it's the pink sheet looking thing WITH NO DUST OR TILES ON IT!!!!)

Least he kept the loo seat shut.
Mum: "Would you like me to get the bags for you to clear up?"
Jasper: "No, did what you asked, you said tile off. Mum?"
Mum: "Yes?"
Jasper: "I love you"
Good old Mum. Never fails does it, those three words help them get away with blue murder!!


  1. Very funny!
    Not for you of course!...but it will look nice...soon,and he WAS trying to be helpful.

  2. hahaha this made me laugh so much! haha

  3. oh so helpful-bit like a bull in a china shop-
    Made me laugh though!

  4. oh dear god....bless him.
    As a bricklayer's daughter, I think the bricks look rather lovely....can't you make it a feature wall???
    Not so sure about the window sill.....and what a waste of a good you had crafty plans for that!!

  5. Brilliant - those three little words can get them out of most situations!!


  6. Thank you for this - a warning to me perhaps should either of my boys offer to do a job in the future! Lovely bricks though as you say. Hope it all comes together before too long xx

  7. Oops. I have a son like that too so I do sympathise. Mine just melts my heart by those 3 little words. I'm sure a bit of plaster will soon put the job right again. At least he was a willing helper. Good luck
