Day of rest

06:30-10:30 Ironing [while catching up on video tape and copious amounts of tea].

10:30-11:30 Dog walking.

11:30-11:40 Start hoovering, decide to find attachment to clean lampshades.

11:40-13:05 Attachment buried in assorted clutter of glory hole cupboard under the stairs. Decide to pull everything out and have a good sort out. Not A Good Idea.

13:05 Vacuum one carpet. Remove enough dog hairs to knit not just another dog but a whole team.

13:45-14:00 Lunch

14:00-14:45 Clean bathroom, remove enough human hairs to recreate a Cher wig. Resolve to book haircut next weekend.

15:00 Settle down to watch the rugby, Wasps v Toulouse. Sit as close to tv as possible in case I spot Dragon.

16:15 Wake up in time to see Rob Howley score the winning try for the Wasps.

16:30-17:30 Get more bloody washing in from the line, decide not to iron it immediately, thereby creating yet another pile of ironing that Has To Be Done.

17:30 Discover that the dogs have broken into the garage and eaten another (much smaller) bucket of groundbait.

17:30-18:00 Hose down back garden.

18:00-19:00 Dog walk. Decide to go to non public area to avoid having to clear up runny poo.

19:00-19:15 Listen to The Archers while playing Solitaire. (There are cheats for Solitaire? Blimey.)

19:15-23:00 Domestic crisis, best not talked about.

23:00 Log on at last, find I’ve missed a couple of important emails. Feel guilty. Decide to post silly links instead.

01:00 Realise the time, head off to bed.

So how was your day of rest?

    The ironing thing. It’s much better dealt with on a “need to wear” basis! Then you’re never standing doing a whole pile at once :-D

    Ha, ha, glad you spotted that Jo. I thought my father was pulling my leg when he told me about it (he has previous for this) but no, there it is in black and white.
