Understanding Women's Vocabulary

Hi folks Louise here,
Ages ago on the Charmed Craft Talk Forum somebody shared a fabulously funny (but true!) guide about understanding women's vocabulary, here is a snippet of it....

"Fine" This is the word we use at the end of any argument that we feel we are right about but need to shut you up. NEVER use "Fine" to describe how a woman looks. This will cause you to have one of those arguments.

"Five Minutes" This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the rubbish, so I feel that it's an even trade.

"Nothing" This means something and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with the word "Fine".

Well I thought it would be a handy thing for my husband to be aware of so I decided to make it into a little Survival Guide for him. Here's what I came up with....


I used the Back to Front 'Cheeky' images for the covers and bound it together on my bind it all (it went a bit wrong though - hence the bent binding wire!)
Here's the title page...

I don't think he was as amused as I was but hey ho that's men for you, who's going to offer to write us a book on understanding men? Any offers? Let's face it, it would hardly take a genius!

Have a lovely day
