~~~~~~~~RECIPE FOR THE PERFECT FAMILY~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~How to create the perfect family~~~~~~

You will need:

1 large house

3-6 people, depending on how long you want to wait for it to be done

3 cups of pets

2 cups of patience3 ounces of anger/frustration

3 litres of laughter

4 teaspoons of trust

And last but definitely not least

Lots and lots of love.

First, open the house, and make sure that it will be the right size for your family.

Mix the desired amount of people with the pets, carefully so you don't damage them,

in a separate bowl, stir love and laughter together. Set aside.

Taking each person separately, evenly distribute the patience and trust,

making sure that each one gets an equal amount (Failure to distribute evenly may lead to a different recipe.)

Carefully open the bottle of anger/frustration.

Using a Q-tip, dab small portions of the anger/frustration onto each person.

Lastly, take the love and laughter and sprinkle it all over the house, pets and people.

Let sit until all parts of the recipe are thoroughly combined, and voila.

Your Perfect Family is complete.

Shame. I don't think I got it right either. We have very heated arguments here. But having celebrated our Golden Anniversary a couple of years ago it must have been reasonably OK.

Well done. We had a split for six months after 2 years and many ups and downs but we survived.

Did you both throw in an extra pinch of understanding after the split Suzy6 ?

Yes we must have done or maybe learnt to compromise. Oh well no regrets. We were both hot headed and fiery in our youth. Now we are just two OAP hooligans.

You should have followed the recipe years ago Mavary

I did just that. We were 7. The recipe though does not mention the silent echos in your home when your children leave to make their own recipex Thankful for Grandchildren who break the silence. My third is expected around the 11th Nov, I'm sooooo excitedx

HI King very interesting reading, there were 6 in our family and numerous cats and 1 dog, I have lots of patience and love, I think I will panic when mixing everything, but it is a nice idea.
