    I have extremely poor fridge management skills. There is stuff in there that I'm sure has grown arms and legs by now... (DH gets up me about once every few weeks and ends up cleaning it out!)

    I hate mopping and I very rarely do it (wooden floors)

    I fart in the bed then try not to move so DH won't smell it

    Sometimes I don't answer the phone when I see it's his mother calling

    I always tell MIL I didn't hear the phone.
    I'm pretty sure she suspects I'm deaf

    The other night I slept with my clothes on... and I didn't even accidentally fall asleep!

    When the girls and I bake cakes I put some of the batter in a little bowl just for me and then give them the bowl with just the scrapings left

    Whenever the girls want to play doctors I always pretend I have a sore back to get them to unknowingly give me massages

    I do that too but usually wait until he is just asleep cause he really hates it.

    I also do the quick fly around the house tidying up just before he gets home so he doesn't realise that I have done nothing all day.

    I don't hang my washing for ages and usually have to rummage through the clean washing to find something to wear.

    I tell DH that I am not tired and will stay up a bit longer to watch TV just so I can secretly have a snack before bed.

    I ate hungry jacks for lunch today! Normally I try to eat healthy so am feeling guilty...

    Some times i grab clean clothes that have been left on the floor and throw them in the washing machine, just to avoid putting them away

    Some times i do nothing all day and then at the last minute rush around cleaning and pretend i've been busy all day when DH gets home.

    I have pretended i was feeling sick in order to get a day in bed.

    I have eaten DH's chocolate behind his back - always with the idea i will 'replace' it before he notices but i never do.

    I often get 'sick' when invited to go swimming just to avoid being seen in a swimsuit, or i suddenly feel 'too cold' to go in the water if i do go so i can stay dressed

    I give DS lunch orders every monday cause I cant be bothered making lunch.
    I take cash out at the supermarket so it looks like I just spent it on a big shop..then I go and get my car cleaned at the carwash cafe!
    i put things in the dryer and tell DH it was a great day for drying on the line.
    I put the shirts in the dryer rather than iron them!

    Oh I used to do that all the time! Lol. I'd just be like "oh it was an expensive shop today... nappies... cleaning products..." and really I would take out cash and go and buy myself a new top or something

    This thread makes me feel so much better about myself. I am not the only evil one out there! Lol.

    When DP tells me MIL wants to visit on X day at X o'clock I act like I have plans and convince him I really had told him the other day about them and haven't just made them up therefore I manage to avoid the IL's 99.9% of the time.

    The bed linen gets washed monthly.

    The floors get mopped once every few weeks - just can't stand mopping!

    I've had solo junk food binges from time to time (seems a common theme here!)

    I don't iron - at all!!!! We don't even own one! Mum taught me that "folding" & "hanging" clothes properly is just the same - so true!

    I buy clothes, shoes & makeup for myself all the time, but I don't wear them in front of DH for a few weeks, otherwise he'll see they are new!
