The Kindness of Folk

Good morning everyone.  Well, I didn't sleep well again last night and the day has dawned dark, dank, wet and miserable but I do feel marginally better.  I was overwhelmed with all the replies I had to my last post, offering both sympathy and a wealth of tried and trusted remedies, some of which I have tried with a measure of success.  I hope the bugs have now decided I am no longer any fun and will booger off elsewhere!  On Monday I had to venture out to get some bread and spoke to one of my neighbours who had also been ill herself.  Yesterday she called round with this....




At the time I spoke to her I was not wearing a scarf and she commented on the fact, so she brought me this one which she had crocheted herself. Isn't it lovely? It's very warm too, bless her.  I will be cat sitting for her next month for 4 weeks so can repay her in that way.

People can be so kind and thoughtful.

I'm afraid my ironing has suffered with me feeling so rough and it is now a veritable mountain :/  That is my task for today, I think.  I just wish I could be like a colleague whom I worked with a few years ago, who never ironed anything !   I just can't do it...I like crisp and clean not wrinkled.

The only things I don't iron are towels, undies and socks. How about you? Do you iron everything? Or do you just fold and smooth?  Do tell!

Thanks so much for popping in x

  2. I iron except undies,towels,socks, wool things ( how could anyone bother with sock ironing!) and anything else that can be just put away without. I tried not ironing but it was the tea towels that I didn't like crumpled

  3. I am the same as Sue, I don't iron undies or socks, or woollens, sometimes if the drier has been used somethings can be folded up. Glad you are feeling a tad better.

  4. Gorgeous scarf, it looks lovely and warm and a perfect match for your jumper.
    I iron everything we wear with the exception of socks and undies.if things have been in the drier and not too creased they just get a quick lick with the iron :-)

    1. I'm always happy if something comes out of the dryer looking good and not needing an iron. It rarely happens though :)

  5. What a lovely scarf. We have an ironing mountain hidden in a cupboard, I iron t.shirts, work shirts, my work clothes and school uniform and that's it

    1. Unfortunately we don't have a spare cupboard so the pile is sitting in the basket on the kitchen floor staring at me reproachfully ...lol...
