JusJoJan 12th – Superstition or common sense

It’s bad luck to walk under a ladder. I’m not sure about this, but I am sure about the common sense behind the superstition.

Today Mr D and I have been busy with a spot of New Year DIY. Our bedroom and walk-in wardrobe need to be repainted. There’s much ladder work involved, particularly for painting ceilings and fitting new lighting.

With Mr D at the top of the ladder, paint and roller in hand, I refrained from walking underneath. Common sense tells me if anything drops from the top of the ladder gravity will ensure it lands on me. I stepped around. Pup was not so fortunate… I spent the afternoon washing paint droplets out of her fur!


Thank you to Zhenzhen for today’s word, and to Linda for hosting this challenge. Pop over to say hi to both of them.
