A First This Year .. Washing On The Line ... Hurrah.!

 Hello there ...
Well what a lovely day we have had .. lots of sunshine this morning.

It tempted me to have a wander outside .. and even try some washing on the line ..

Hurrah ...!

Clothes smell so deliciously fresh when dried in the free fresh air and sunshine.

Still feeling really rather Yuck with this cold-y flu-y type bug .. but to be honest I'm a bit bored of it .. so much I want to do ..

 And now Mr Sunshine is playing out .. I want to be out there too ..

The little Daffs are peeping out .. there should be a nice showing for St Davids Day on Sunday.

I'm 'Girding my Loins' .. as they say .. to work on Sunday .. we will just have to .. I'm hopeful I will feel much better by then.
Poor Hubby P had to work today .. a long standing booking .. not that really he was fit to work with having this flu bug .. but hey ho' that's being self employed for you.
 I had a hot lemon drink and hot water bottle ready for him when he returned ..
and he had a little nap to recover.

 I chained myself to the ironing board again .. and sorted and pressed more of the linen.

 I think I am getting to the end of this lot ... I'm getting a bit tired of it .. I keep looking out of the window at the sunshine.
Mind you I feel that sickly and generally Yuck  .. I wouldn't be up to much gardening wise.

It went a bit cooler this afternoon .. so I sat by the fire and listed on eBay .. a few bits more of the linen
... got to move it on.

 I did manage a few minutes .. when I went to get the washing off the line ..
I kinda potted up the polyanthus I bought .. they will be glad of a bit more root room .. but they are rather bunged in.

All bright and cheerful ..!
They are in an old 'soil' bucket .. not really a topic of conversation you would want to encourage around the dinner table.
Soil buckets were used to collect the waste in toilets and emptied often by 'night soil men' who would go around the streets with a cart collecting the waste... nice job!
Or in our case .. living in the wilds of the countryside .. Dad would empty it in a special pit he had dug ..
Yes ..
The joys of modern plumbing...!

On that note ... nite nite x
