    I though i would flick the duster around (yes i am OCD) and as i was spraying the polish on it it went all over the floor (no i did not notice at first!).............

    Anyway as i came back in the lounge all pleased from a phonecall i was skipping slightly and slipped over :eek: i mean proper heels over head........wine all over me :lol: :lol: (it really really hurt :()

    The dog after watching with his head tilted ''what are you like mother'' decided to tippy toe over it :lol: clever boy!!! :lol: :thumbup:

    So the moral of the story is be careful when you spray your polish :eek:

    I can confirm that it has the same effect on lino too :lol:

    Sorry you're hurting, it took me ages to get better after my slip/slide/crash.

    Hands up here to - I have done it but unfortunately I wasnt the victim - my 20 year old son copped it.
    Thankfully the only thing he hurt was his pride. The look on his face was sooooo funny as he inspected the laminate to see what on earth could have happened.
    I owned up and got a right telling off from OH :lol:
