So what makes for a bad combination?
When I was pregnant I would cry over adverts or TV programmes. The most memorable was when we were watching Band of Brothers and the documentary came on at the end. I cried for about an hour. Not just a wee bubble but full on heart wrenching sobs. Don't ask me what set me off, I have no clue!

3. Babies and work/going out clothes
If JC is going to sick he will never puke up on my old trackies and disgustingly grey jumper. Oh no, he reserves that pleasure for Daddy's fresh shirt for work or mum's nice dress.
4. Cleavage and toast crumbs
Kate mentioned cleavage and popcorn which I can second but I find that toast crumbs can be equally annoying in the nooks and crannies.
5. Delivery man and nap time
Picture this . . . Your delightful child has given in and has just gone down for a much needed nap. You sit on the couch and take a breath, pleased with yourself that you are taking 5 minutes 'me' time. Then the delivery guys rings the door bell like there's an emergency, the dog barks, you trip over the stuff you should have already been tidying away in an effort to shut the dog up and reach the door before he bloody rings the bell again. You open the door and the guy shouts loudly at you 'here you go hen, just sign here!' He tries to make polite conversation with you but you are whispering at him and he looks at you like you are a few sandwiches short of a picnic. You grab the parcel from him and hastily shut the door. You listen, nothing. You smile a relieved smile and then . . . MMMWAAAHHH!
