I thought I'd share this picture with you. The label comes from my underpants (photographed when clean of course), sold by Sainsburys under their TU label. Good advice Mr Sainsbury, particularly when I'm in them.
Decorating starts today in our main living room. Now I can hear some moans and normally I would moan too except I don't decorate. This is done by my other half who is an expert decorator. I leave her with it. Now here's the thing: some 30 odd years ago when we moved into our then new house, my wife was putting up wallpaper having been taught by my uncle Les who is also an exceptionally talented decorator. I walked in to the room with a cup of tea admiring her work when I noticed that there was something not quite right somehow.
I couldn't work it out. The wallpaper was patterned, small roses if I remember and eventually I worked it out: in the corner, she had put a piece upside down. I complimented her on her work and told her that she'd put a piece upside down. I never thought about it. Needless to say, following her reaction, since that day when she decorates, I make my self scarce.
Should I have not said anything and wait for her to find out herself? Then she would have accused me of being blind and not admiring her work! Looking back, it was one of those situations where (I was) damned if I did and damned if I didn't.
Anyway, talking about domestic things which I know is dreadfully exciting, our washing machine has packed up and of course, Sod's Law, it was full of water and washing. We managed to get the door open and retrieve the clothes which consisted of a few items belonging to her ladyship. Wringing them out in the garden before putting them on the line to dry out brought back some memories of when I was at home with my parents, wringing out clothes after they'd come out of the tub.
My new mobile phone is really good. It even makes phone calls! There's so much else it does apart from making a phone call and it's so clever, it's frightening. I can use hip new language like 'Apps' (applications). As soon as the youngsters know us older ones can use their language, they'll change it again.
I do hope you've had a great weekend, wherever you are.
