I pack a snack like an apple or carrot sticks, and my kids play. They've never asked for food or drinks from there, I don't think they realise it's even an option or that it's actually a restaurant that serves "food".

    (And yes, I'm expecting to get a few references to the horse carrot thread...)
    bahaha! OMG, I love this! My youngest constantly used to as me why we can't go to 'that' playground! He got to on our way to our holiday destination recently (stopped to get DH a coffee at one of those road stop places with several different cafes in them) and he's not mentioned them since.

    Oh my gosh, I thought I was the only one! I can't even eat icy poles at all for fear of coming anywhere near the stick with my teeth. It gives me goosebumps (not the good kind) just thinking about it !

    I'm OCD with numbers... When I refuel, volume on tv/radio all need to go in increments of 5. So 15 or 20 if it's 19 or 12 ect I cabt stand it.

    Also I can't stand the sound of someone eating, chewing or swallowing. I actually get really angry.

    But it the weirdest thing I do would have to be: the washing I'm so OCD about it DH isn't even allowed to help.

    Every wash needs to be done the following way:
    exactly one scoop washing powder
    one small lid/cup fabric softener (different ones depending on what the load is)
    darks, whites, colours, bed linen, kids stuff, towels and tea towels, DH work gear and delicates all separate!
    Then each load gets a specific corner on the washing line using all the same coloured legs depending on the load.

    Dark = blue pegs
    kids = pink pegs and so on.

    also all washing must be done all on the same day. Washed, hung out and folded put away.
