    I once used 1/4 cup of bicarb soda in a cake instead of 1/4 teaspoon...
    Did NOT taste good!

    In my defence I had been looking after a very sick child alone for 3 days, with two other children also and I was extremely sleep deprived.
    I have also forgotten my age, how to spell my son's name and various other simple things I should know due to lack of sleep. It's a wonder I function at all really :/
    I stuff my kids' birth dates up all the time! And when DS2 was a newby I'd have to pause and really think for at least a minute when people asked what his name was! (Who am I kidding, 6 months on and I still do it!). I got the spelling of DS2's middle name wrong on his birth certificate, but luckily realised before I sent if off.

    Another time my BIL and I had to rush my sister to the dr's office to get a shot to stop her spewing (gastro) so they could get on their flight back to Melb. She sat down in the waiting room with her head in a bucket while BIL & I gave her details to the receptionist. When asked for her DOB we both kind of looked at each other blankly. He rattled off some random date, I'm like, no, I think it's *insert another wrong date*. My poor sister got up and yelled in the busy waiting room 'oh FFS you two, it's *insert correct birth date*' then promptly put her head back in her bucket!

    I can never remember my husbands year of birth, and counting backwards doesn't work because I usually can't remember how old he is either!

    I've had plenty of cooking fails! But my best fail was on a kids motorbike. My DFs little brother (was 3) got a peewee motorbike for Xmas, got straight on and rode it, as did everyone else. After much convincing I got on (not advisable wearing shorts and sandals) pulled the throttle on hard, went launching across the front yard, started sliding sideways then fell off...all while DF was holding my ponytail in An attempt to "save" me. To make it worse, there were about 30 neighbors socializing in the street... Big fail!

    My mum had a good fail recently, she made custard for dessert. DF and I took a mouthful at the same time and spat. It out at the same time. Mum looked like she would kill us, until she tasted it herself and we realized she had used salt instead of sugar.... Massive fail...yuk!!!

    Boiling eggs, stuff it up without fail, it's quite upsetting because I'm a very competent cook, but boiled eggs beat me every time

    Get your water boiling rapidly, gently lower your egg into the water (I use a spoon), then put the timer on for 8 minutes for slightly soft centres and 10 minutes for firm centres. Then immediately tip the hot water out and cover them in cold water to stop them cooking. Works perfectly for me!
