Oh my..... its a bit hot for me....

Sunny days and staying indoors....
that sums me up...
I don't mind a bit of sunshine...
I quite like the way it makes me feel happier and that I am suddenly far more productive,
in fact I was up at 5:30 am.... yep... uh huh... that's right, that time of day actually exists, I would not have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes!!

It was a shock I can tell you, but I could not stay in bed any longer... it was soooo stuffy and warm... and outside was much fresher and I put a load of washing on the line and had a lovely cup of tea watched the news....
Oh look another MP is swindling us! and oh dear... that lady off Britains got Talent is having a tough time and gone for a rest in The Priory... did you know that she will potentially make between 3 and 5 million this year! I wish I could sing!.... and of course a little crochet.....before everyone else got up at 7am.... I even did some ironing.....!!

This is not a true representation of "The Pink Feather".... commonly known as Alex!

Yes this is the right blog...
(Mum)
you are not reading about someone else....
I do actually know how to use an iron....
I just choose not to for the best part of the year! ;D

Actually I bought myself one of those "steam generator" irons and I love it... for a person that detests the back breaking monotonous chore of "IRONING" it is actually quite a joy to use... I must tell you it was a struggle with my conscience to spend £80 on an iron.....
(I know.... "HOW MUCH" I hear you cry) but my old iron was horribly horrible! and my board had no life left in it... its legs were bowing and every time I put any weight on it the board got lower and so did I!
Mentally and physically!

I bought a new "huge" board and if I ever go on holiday to Cornwall I am taking it with me I swear I could go surfing on it, it is that monstrous!

Still not a true likeness to me, I wish my legs were that thin, hell I wish my board could take my weight !!

Needless to say the steam generator actually "almost" irons both sides of the clothes at the same time... I very rarely have to turn the item over and press the reverse... I did a whole stack of ironing for 2 and a half hours and didn't get back ache or bored!

Well I got Mr P off to work and then Jamie off to school and then administered a plaster on Danny's index finger.... yep he had a minor dissagreement with the cutlery drawer....
needless to say it bit him!
He cried a little !
I put a plaster on it !!
and he cried a lot !!!
this is his first injury that I felt required a plaster and he hates it...
is that normal ?

Any who he's fallen asleep on the settee and I am on here.... Jamie is now home and upstairs in her room doing something, and she is a bit miffed because the girl she use to play with in the village won't talk to her.... because her cousin doesn't like Jamie...
I now remember how I hated being 11 !

I don't think Danny slept well last night.... bless him... I can't get him to go to bed without his pyjamas on and he won't have a sheet instead of a duvet... he was so hot last night... I have a fan in his room and he doesn't like that much either!

Jamie on the other hand, had the fan so close to her bed that if she had moved in her sleep she would have ended up with mesh print on her backside.... however I ruined her fun and moved it...!

We have a ceiling fan.... but I did spot Mr P researching air conditioning units... but that is not going to happen as I am not keen on them.... yes its warm and yes living on a busy road means the traffic noise is too much to have your windows open at night but we'll live....

Probably ! ;D



I am busy finishing off my FRIENDS swap.... I was hoping to have it posted today but as I am at the office tomorrow while Danny is at playgroup I will post it then...
hope that's okay Lesley!?

I am also part way through making my bits and bobs for my seaside swap with A Bun can Dance... and I have signed up for another one...
don't tell Mr P.... a cosy crochet swap over with Mel at A Country Dream I have asked if it can be open to knitters too, but I am not sure if it will be... there are so many knitted things out there that I love but I just can't knit... it eludes me! perhaps its trying to co-ordinate 2 needles... I am not particularly clumsy but I use to be ambidextrous and I get all con-fuddled!

Well I had better get going
I may pop to the Supermarket later, I really fancy some watermelon!

take care
Alex

What a great post!
Oh to be 11 again (not), I have the same problem with Jess and her friends. Girls can be so damn horrible at times. So much so, Jess' teacher who has been teaching many years told me she can't get her head round this year groups group of girls (how nasty and uncrontrollable they can be). I was quite pleased though when she assured me that my DD doesn't join in with them though.
At least we won't go through it with the boys.
((hugs))

Hey you, when you have done with your ironing please feel free to come over and tackle mine....go on, you know you want to!

OMG, you crack me up. Sounds like an interesting day. What does it say about us when an iron gets us all excited!? ha ha
Thanks for your well wishes. Mono is, well, really bad. Short for Mononeucleosis (however you spell it) It's like taking all the worst sicknesses you have ever had and combining them, reving them up 100 % and then slapping them on you overnight. AND it lasts for weeks. Don't get it.......Wash hands and don't share saliva, ie. sharing drinks, toothbrushes etc. Ok, ok I've calmed down.
Hope you have a great day.

Oh yes it has been a hot day, I to was up at around the same time, I love this time of the morning this time of the year and then I love the evenings around about 8 when it's just starting to get a little bet cooler.
Any way I've been to the beach today with the kiddies and had a great time we were the first on the beach and when we came on there was probably still only a few people on the beach it was fantastic.

Hope you have another productive day tomorrow.

hugs joanne

Girls!!! Some can be so mean! You are funny about ironing, but a good iron can make a BIG difference. What is a plaster? Hope it gets better.

Jenn said...

Alex, I don't know of anything that could make me happily get up that early in the morning...and ironing is just wrong, especially so happily. But if it makes you so happy, enjoy and I'll send you our ironing too :) So glad to hear from you and that you are alive, breathing and coping with the heat, terrible 11 year old girls and the little mans boo-boo.
Hugs,
Jenn

I got to you via country dream, saw that you had suggested the swap include knitted items, and of course, being a nosy old biddy, had to have a look and see what you're all about. Lovely blog, easy to read, great illustrations, sense of humour evident too. Thanks for a great read. Oh and I hate the heat too, even though some would say it hasn't been THAT hot, today's dip by five to eight degrees, suits me perfick. I am an autumn/winter woman myself, though I do love to see the garden at this time of year, sit in the shade for a moment or two.. any longer and I am bored!
Take care, look forward to looking in again.. .will the kettle be on next time?
