    What things have you not learnt? Make me feel a bit less pathetic
    Do you make sure the linen is bone dry before putting it in the cupboard?

    I suck at putting stuff away. My house goes from immaculate to pig sty in about 2 minutes because I leave a trail of stuff behind me wherever I go

    General cleanliness. I just don't have it!

    Ironing- there always is, and always will be, some creases....

    Sigh.

    Mum never ironed though so really it's all her fault

    This morning I received 62 identical emails from my friend who is holidaying in Hawaii. So I'm grateful you stopped at 4 :-)

    See. I am so inept as an adult that I can't even make the words so I use memes that were probably created by 14 year old.

    Default Failing as an adult: Things I never learnt how to do.

    SPG that meme is so apt.

    Mine is the same!! I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I wonder if I need to be like everyone else and use a strong fabric softener?
    My linen is definitely dry.
    I've put bars of smelly soaps in the cupboard which does help a little, but only for linen directly near it.
    Hmmm...

    After reading this thread, I've never felt more competent.
    Well, as a homemaker at least, I can cook and clean yay!

    I'm almost 30 and have never learnt to drive (cars look scary!).
    I can do a tax return, but only because I have basically no income or assets, it makes it much easier! I don't actually understand most of the questions so just answer "No" to everything...
    I don't know how superannuation works.
    I have no idea how mortgages work (first time in my life I ever had to write that, I also had no idea how to spell it).
