13 insane catastrophes

  1. If I have a bath with baby when no-one is at home and I slip with her in my arms and hit my neck or become unconscious she might drown!
  2. I shouldn’t leave that can of spray on it’s side – what if it explodes and shoots around the room and hits someone in their temple?
  3. Train derailments while waiting at the boom gates.
  4. Prams without brakes near water
  5. Walking with a knife from one side of the kitchen to the other… If I trip…
  6. Walking with a glass in the kitchen … must swap glasses for plastic.
  7. Wet feet in the hallway after a shower… what if I have to run?
  8. Being alone in the house… madmen attack
  9. Plane trips – have convinced myself the day I don’t think about a crash is when it will happen.
  10. Husband working in the mines on large machinery – need I say more?
  11. What if she’s allergic to something we haven’t come across yet?
  12. Suffocating blankets/pillows/teddy bears/fluff
  13. Cords and buttons on children’s clothing

    Mine for today was “We’ve just left the park, what if I hallucinated putting the baby in the pram, and I really left him there?”

    I know it’s crazy, but I have to check anyway!


  5. Wow, Pip. What can I say?

    obsessive compulsive ritualistic catastrophising…. Things can get a little insane…


  11. Oh dear…this list really made me think…


  12. This reminds me of one of the Lemony Snicket Series of Unfortunate Events books.


  13. I always have the same catastrophe with your number five. Whenever I am cooking in the kitchen and my children are around, I always fear that I will accidentally drop the knife on their head.

    My hands are full with my to do list
