As the title says... I totally freak out whenever I see a magpie on its own and always have to say "Hello Mr Magpie, Hello Mrs Magpie." I really wish I could get out of the habit as we have hundreds of them around here. I saw one a minute ago and although I said the 'magic words' a few seconds later the cat came in (who appears to have a dodgy tummy ) and ended up wiping poo on the sofa and my work!! I also avoid 3drains religiously! My OH thinks im mad! What other susperstitions does everyone have???
