As I type, I've got a load of washing going around the machine [that's what you can hear in the background] and I hope to get it pegged out on the line once it's done [despite those grubby looking grey clouds that are drifting in!].
And all this domestic goddess behaviour has reminded me to share a few more of my scavenger hunt photos [for more details on the hunt ... check out this post by its organiser Rinda] ... starting with this one ...
2. A clothesline:
As the photo probably shows, our garden is pretty petite. And when the clothesline is full ... so is the garden.
But there was no way I was going to forgo one.
Ironing, cleaning, dusting, hoovering ... I can [and very often do] do without. But yet there's something about 'pegging out' clean laundry on a dry day that I find ridiculously satisfying and so we boughta retractable line which only gets strung across when it's needed.
This has meant that:
- our washing gets that lovely line-dried smell ...
- meanwhile when it's not in use, it's safely tucked away and we don't get garroted by a line stretched across the garden.
5. A train:
Overall I think that sums up British summer holidays quite well.
10. A horse:
But this chap - with his amazing platinum blonde mane with brunette fringe - was clearly used to seeing people ... and he began to wander over to greet us:
This is James, on a bike, speaking to someone who rang him for work-related advice on the phone wedged between his chin and shoulder ... while simultaneously trying to convince a horse that he has no more food in his hands.
Who said men can't multi-task? ;-)
So, there's 3 more to cross of the list ... only 6 to go ...
Right, I'm off to peg-out!
