SIGH!!! Do you ever have one of those days where you just should have stayed in bed?!? Well ... I've been having one of THOSE days!!
Firstly, I woke up with a nasty crick in my neck that means I can only turn my head a little to my left and not at all to my right ... which I keep forgetting!!! OUCH! But ... Friday is my day off work each week and it's washing day ... so I dutifully ... if somewhat awkwardly!! ... put a load of towels into the washing machine. No problems there right? WRONG!!! I came back an hour later to hang the washing, only to find that my Beloved Geek Boy had piled some things in the wash tub and they had blocked the drain, so instead of the washing water draining away as it should ... it went OVER THE SIDE!! Now, that wouldn't be such a problem, except the two dogs sleep in the laundry and guess what all that overflowing wash water did? You guessed it ... flooded the dogs' bedding!!! SIGH! OK, so I'll hang the dog blankets on the clothesline to dry THEN hang out the washing. So I lugged the first of the heavy, waterlogged dog blankets to the line, nearly busted my foo-foo flinging it over, then went back for the next one. I came back out ... hmmm ... that's funny, I didn't think the first blanket was touching the ground when I originally hung it. Wait ... is it just me, or is that blanket getting closer and closer to the ground???
(Insert slow-motion toppling and loud clanging sound effect here!!!)
Never mind London Bridge ... my CLOTHESLINE has fallen down!! EEK!!
Not the Hills Hoist!!! Now how am I going to dry my clean towels?!?! SIGH ... so much for reducing the carbon footprint ... it will have to be a dryer job. I wonder how much a new clothesline is going to cost???
So, you see, some days it just DOESN'T pay to get out of bed! :0) Oh ... in case you were wondering ... yes ... the mowing of our backyard jungle is definitely on the agenda for weekend jobs ... right after we go and buy a new clothesline! :0)
Hopefully YOUR day hasn't been quite so SIGH-worthy as mine and I'm sure tomorrow will be better, but in the meantime, I think I'm off to pop a heatpack on my poor cricked neck and curl up in a corner with a book so nothing else can go wrong!
Don't forget, OPAM gals, it's time to update your sidebar list of finishes for April and email your number of finished projects to Peg or I. I'll be blog-hopping around in the next couple of days to collect finishes that aren't emailed in, so up-to-date lists are a great help. I've been seeing some gorgeous photos of finished projects around blogland, so why not make yourself a cuppa and go for a little bloghop through the OPAM list on my sidebar - I guarantee you'll enjoy it more than watching clothes dry ...Oops! :0) Til next time ...
