I think some of you ladies have missed a trick on the ironing front. When OH and I first got together over 30 years ago we both worked long hours (software development) so, since he was already used to ironing his own shirts for work I said that if he wanted to hog the TV watching sport he had to do the ironing at the same time. He still does it - very useful habit now there's so much golf/football/rubgy/cricket/whatever on TV. I think the only sport he doesn't watch is synchronised swimming.
Now he's retired he also does most of the vacuum cleaning because he chose the bloody Dyson!
Loved the ghost soldier tribute and yes, it does put into perspective the recent behaviour of both citizens and politicians. Don't think it'll change much though. Short memories. Short vision.
I now have bright sunshine and blue bits to the front of the house and a whopping great black thing at the back.
