uch, you can tell I'm working


One more post! One more post!

I changed all the beds last night, something I could do far more often - but not doing it frequently enough makes it feel doubly good when I finally do it!

Yesterday I took the winter duvets off the bed (huge relief, our kingsize duck feather duvet was so heavy it pinned us to the mattress, oof) and put on new white bedlinen. The baby slept well and stayed in his cot all night, it all felt so light and cool and loveleeeeee - and I even realised I'd actually shaved my legs so it was even whooshier!

The sensual joy of it all!

Rush out and change your sheets now, go on. Better still, buy lovely new stuff. High thread count. Treat yourselves, do it!

You've no idea how disappointing it is when you see 'shaved my legs' underlined and then find it's not a link to a photo of your shaved legs ;)

Alas, you're better off - I have the fat, pale, stumpy, thick ankled, mottled legs of an elderly aul one. There will be no leg photos of me, I can tell you that for nothing.

We really must be sure never to meet, you'll be so disappointed!

love fresh bedlinen, love linen sheets (we had a some old ones in my mums house but don't own any now), love 100 percent cotton! line dried outside, or tumble dried...
hate the work involved... tell me, do you iron your bedlinen? i really appreciate ironed cotton, but whenever i aspire to do it i end up with all my bedlinen bunch up in the ironing basket and in the end i have to pull it out and put it wrinkly on the bed...

I would LOVE ironed bedlinen, would love it, a nd one day I may have it, when I can employ someone to do it for me.

Even when I attempt to iron it, it stays wrinkled. Life's too short.

My mother inlaw however, can iron a fitted sheet impecably, on a blanket on a table, no ironing board. Astounding.

hm... a blanket on the table... good idea!
am i being really stupid for attempting to iron bedlinen on the ironing board? should i try to do it on the bed? have i missed the point completely?
i assume as long as i wouldn't use steam it wouldn't damage the mattress? although, i suppose you couldn't really iron cotton without steam...
