Rugby or ironing which to choose ?
December 2, 2017 8:31am CST
Wales are playing South Africa in a Rugby match and husband is watching. I can sit and watch too or go into another room and tackle the mountain of ironing that is looking at me accusingly. So far I have done three loads of washing, stripped and changed our bed sheets, cleaned our ensuite bathroom and swept the floor in the kitchen dining room. I have also addressed all my Christmas cards and will also have to write them in the next day or so. Tomorrow is my three year old grandson's birthday party so I have wrapped his gift ready and may have to pop out and buy a tub of sweets as my step daughter ordered one in her online shop yesterday which I unpacked and it didn't come and she wants it for the party! I will now get off my chair and go and get that ironing done in case I have to pop out for her. I suspect husband will be asleep in two minutes while the rugby plays on the TV. I'll just listen to the South Africa and Welsh National anthems which I love - ours is rubbish! I also like the German, French, Scottish, Australian, and US anthems. Husband has Welsh ancestry so supports them unless England are playing of course .

@MALUSE I certainly can but sometimes I just enjoy the repetitive nature of the ironing without having to think of concentrate on anything. I think I ironed about 30 pillow cases ours and from ours the previous change plus recent guests. I use double cases on ours to protect the pillows.

@MALUSE I know but I hate things hanging over me as a job that needs doing so try to get them all done. Christmas cars are now looking at me tauntingly . I have written the overseas ones and some I can hand out but there are still lots to write.
