I’ve read and really enjoyed quite a lot of Room 101 posts on various blogs recently and it got me to think about what I’d write if I did one of my own.
So here goes – the three things I would most like to banish from this world!
I have the most ridiculous phobia of moths and I can pinpoint exactly where it came from. As a child I watched an episode of Casualty and this old lady had a buzzing in her ears, they did all sorts of tests and couldn’t work out what it was. In the end they realised that there had been a moth in the room when she went to sleep that night and it had gone in her ears. Urgh even typing that makes me shudder. I am absolutely terrified that the horrible, dusty, flappy creatures will go in my ears! I know this is really very unlikely but that’s the thing with phobias isn’t it – they are irrational! Anyway, moths can do one. They are most definitely being shut away in Room 101 never to be seen again! (If only!)

I have never, ever liked mushrooms. I don’t like carrots either but I can sort of manage those, Dave does a good job of hiding them in things but mushrooms – no, never.
When they are raw I find the feel of them really creepy – all smooth and a bit squeaky on top and the underneaths? Urgh.
Cooked, they taste of soil and the texture of them makes me think of eating slugs. They’re dirty and if you eat the wrong ones they could kill you. For goodness sake they are “fungus” how can “fungus” be something you’re allowed to eat?! It sounds grim. Hideous hideous things. Goodbye mushrooms!!
Now I’m sure we’re not really supposed to put people in Room 101 but I think we can make an exception for this man. I really don’t have a nice thing to say about him. As this is a mainly family based blog I shall remain polite and just say that before people start implementing their ridiculous, ill thought out policies they should try doing the job they are criticising. Walk a mile in my shoes and then tell me I’m doing it wrong.
Mr Gove? Jog on.
I’m now going to tag Kate from Family Fever, Jo from Outnumbered Mum and Chantelle from Mama Mummy Mum . . . as I can’t wait to hear what they’d like to banish!
So what do you think of my choices? Do you agree? What would you put in your own Room 101
