The cardigan is almost finished. I've no idea what I'm making for tea tonight. Shortly, we are off to the old Mill of Dunhelm. That almost sounds glamorous!
Not when you find out I'm going shopping for a new curtain pole! They are half price in the sale. I've neeeeeeeded one forever!
Also, I will be purchasing a new washing line.
This, dear reader, is necessary because as you know, one snapped on me last post. Well I had another line up too.....THAT SNAPPED ON ME YESTERDAY!!!
I buy the steel core ones too. But enough was enough it said yesterday. The neighbours will have heard loud swearing. I was mad! The HG asked me if I wanted a rotary airer. No, I do not!. I have a superkingsize bed with superkingsize bedding. It's hard enough to get it draping over a long straight line without dealing with angular corners and other lines. Plus I admit to having a bit of a washing fetish. I do like to look out of the upstairs window down onto my neatly pegged out line of washing. I will admit to being proud of the fact my clothes pole ( hand made and painted blue ) is taller than anyone else's and my washing dries a lot quicker because it's closer to the sun up in the straosphere. I also will admit to looking at my neighbours ( poor ) efforts on pegging out and feeling far superior at both length and height of my washing lines. I admit to a smug smile when mines out first too. I have also been known to venture out into the garden to run my hand through the washing and sniff it! ( When I've dropped the pole of course! ) I sniff it as I fold it into the basket in the garden once it's dried. I much prefer pegging out light washing than dark. On the very very rare occasions I let the HG or the teen peg out...I do then go out and repeg. Towels by the corners - NOT folded over! Trousers - now I've switched! I used to be a leg pegger but now I'm one for a neatly secured waist. I do like a matching set of pegs on an item too! My favourite pegs were some bird pegs I got from Lakeland. Best pegs ever. Sadly they don't make them anymore. The few surviving ones are very brittle now - they are over ten years old folks, so I just keep them in my peg bag for posterity!! I just went outside to take this shot for you...
Sigh, I had a whole flock!
Indeed, one of my proudest moments was when the brand new neighbour's mother looked over and complemented me on how gorgeous my washing smelt. It was the first time we'd met! We then chatted at length and quite seriously about fabric conditioners and powders. My washing smelt so lush on this particular day because I'd bought those new ( marketing man's dream me! ) fabric conditioner pearl things. They were on offer. I do onlyever buy things on offer! I gave her some for her next wash! We bonded over laundry matters!
I hope you are not all backing. Away. From. The. Crazy. Washing. Lady.
TOTALLY NUTS WHOLE HAZELNUTS!!
I then might go to a food shop to look for something for tea. I've got the spuds and veg. I might find a chicken to roast. We might have beans on toast too. I'm in *that* kinda lazy mood!
Ah well it's time to head out! Have a good day everyone!
I'll let you know how I got on line wise and tea wise next post!!
Lots of love from
