Contemplating clothes in need of ironing, clothes being washed over by window light, and somehow feeling that there must be more to Life …

    Does anyone actually iron any more? I guess they do but I certainly don’t. Life is much too short ! I love this colour by the way

    Hmm… sand dunes in the moonlight maybe ?
    Maybe I just need to get out more ?
    Maybe I’ll just stick with my imagination for a while longer…the sand dunes would be frosty white not blue this morning. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        Ready… All together now…and don’t forget the dance…
        I’m a little teapot short and stout..
        Here’s my handle (place one hand on your hip), here’s my spout. (raise the other arm out in a spoutward direction)
        When the kettle’s boiling, hear me shout… (raise yourself on tip toes and lean over to the spout side of your chosen position)… Pick me up and pour me out. πŸ˜‚ 🀣 πŸ˜‚
        Don’t worry about overbalancing, you can lean on the walls of the padded cell if you topple. 😊


  3. Wrinkles are nice, right?

    Very nice light, textures – and that colour is lovely! Yep – life is too short for ironing; I haven’t ironed a thing in years (don’t tell my sister πŸ™‚ ).

      And here was me thinking you’re the model of the Modern Little Miss Homemaker ….. next you’ll be saying that you fail to sufficiently cherish your doilies! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        Ha, ha! I spent a good many years ironing school and work shirts and blouses for my brood – all with loving care. Many many years ago, I would iron towels, tea towels, underwear and socks!! These days, we simply don’t wear or buy clothes which need ironing (please don’t tell my sister who is the undisputed queen of cleanliness and housework πŸ™‚ ).
