Ouch - all that static

China ladies did ironing in the 1st century

Mum bought nylon sheets to save ironing - young as I was i refused to sleeo in them! OOOOH that static

17/10/2012 at 16:30

Satin sheets- good idea-or do you shoot out of the door if you turn over?

17/10/2012 at 16:32

I know that the Earl of Grantham has his newspapers ironed.

There is a live episode of Emmedale tonight-they are hoping for a dry evening as is not studio based and is going to involve a lot of outside scenes

One of the actors said yesterday the figures will go up as people will just sit there looking for mistakes

Made it back from the blackboard, or rather whiteboard, well, actually smartboard jungle. Natives a little restless (they are only aged 6 and 7) but overwhelmingly helpful. My former colleagues looked harrassed and knackered :- (

Lots of stuff happened here but it's too far back to comment now. Whoever said she wants to learn knitting but can crochet anything, I'm exactly the opposite! The shrug is now 13cm long at the back and I'm commencing armholes!

Afternoon all, have tried to keep up with the thread but you all move too fast for me!

Is it wrong of me to wish for bad weather over the area of Emmerdale Farm tonight? 

17/10/2012 at 17:05

Leggi, I think it is heartily to be wished ;- ) Perhaps they will anticipate and close the roof so play can continue. Can they do that in soaps?

Never try and keep up, the ivy and brambles will take over your garden - well, that's my excuse. It's very stream of consciousness round here!

Nylon school blouses that went yellowish over time ...  nylon underpants from M&S??? Not that I would know much about those of course, but I'm sure other forkers might.

It is very difficult to decide which smiley face to put on the message, good job I am usually on the ipad, where I can't include them. I am so indecisive

Worse than the nylon were the wool vests - a nightmare of itchiness - could never wear one! And they were a sort of dirty cream colour - yuck.

Commencing armholes sounds like a military order

-ok chaps- going in- just commencing armholes.

Was it an experience to be repeated again soon Flo?

Why would you wish it to rain on Emmerdale-will nobody think of the children?

I've ironed wrapping paper before now.

Socks that fell down, 

17/10/2012 at 17:17

My MIL would save all christmas paper, iron, and put it away for the next year.

A bad look is bare leg between trouser and sock-especially white, old, hairy leg.

Armholes :- D:- D  I had a friend at college who used that as a substitute swear word.

Geoff, I'll need a period of recovery, at least a couple of weeks. I would like to pay for my new glasses, so far I've only earned a monocle.

17/10/2012 at 17:26

It has got very dark- not yet 5.30 yet and is chucking it down-did you send that over Flo?

17/10/2012 at 17:32

It's gone very dark here too and meanacing looking clouds.

Good job I'm squirrelled away in the spare room whilst the noises from housework filter upstairs, think I'll stay here til I hear the hoover switch off... 

17/10/2012 at 17:33

Yes. To pay back for the apple you flung over that landed on my head.

17/10/2012 at 17:37

Thunder now -the world is coming to and end

17/10/2012 at 17:38

Oops, pardon me
