Guess The Theme 17

Yesterday I heard the neighbours bickering in the bath.  I took Merlin out so he could go to the toilet and I could hear arguing.  And splashing noises. And then she shouted "You should be thanking me for letting you share my bath!"  Thanks for spelling it out for me.  Really didn't need that image.  Think I'll start taking my mp3 player when I take the dog out in the future to prevent myself accidentally overhearing things I don't want to hear.

And now I've shared that with you, let's get on with Guess The Theme.  I think it should be fairly easy for Brits but I don't think the rest of you will have a clue.  Sorry rest of the world!  If you think you know the answer you can share your guess here, on the Buy Handmade British facebook page or on twitter (@cutekidsclocks).
