Shim Shams for Meddlers

Today I'm going somewhere but I can't say where. "Shim shams for Meddlers" my Mum would say. Whenever we asked a 'nosey' question she would answer by saying "Shim Shams for Meddlers". "What's in that bag Mum?", "where are you going?", "What are you doing?", "who was that on the 'phone?"...if she didn't want to say we would get the standard reply! I have said it myself to Dan on many occasions - together with "have you had enough to eat?...are you sure? ...wouldn't you like something else?" - or - "Are you going to be warm enough dressed like that.." - or even my favourite "Where do you think you're going dressed like that...?". The kind of questions that all Mums ask - drive you nuts - and to which there are not really any answers apart from 'Kevin' type responses of "..Uh.." or something like that!

So - "where are you going today Tracy?"...........
