Day 164 - Thursday 12th June

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead” — Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888), novelist


I don't have any aspirations today other than trying reduce the ironing pile which is the highest I have ever seen it - so it is a high aspiration. I only did the essential ironing before we went away and so now I have added another 4 loads of washing to it. I may not reach the end of the pile, it isn't quite so high that I have to look up to it and I definitely cannot see it's beauty. I cannot believe there is so much there but hopefully if I start at the top it will lead to the end!


Update: 3 1/2 hours later all done!!!! Now I am going to pretend the washing machine is broken so I don't get anymore ironing to do.

Wow, that is some pile of ironing! But there is nothing like putting on freshly ironed clothes, can't understand when people don't iron! Good luck with it!

I seem to develop one like that every now and again. I tend to hide it in a cupboard and do the essentials plus and extra few items 'til it's gone :D
