Saturday afternoon ironing someone else’s sheets
My second favorite household chore is ironing.

I have a hard and fast rule that sheets that are bought by me for use in this house MUST NOT NEED IRONING. So what am I doing on this summer, Saturday afternoon? Ironing.
I have told you that one of the things I do is assist my real Estate Agent friend in her business. Apart from selling RE she also manages investment apartments for her clients. This week we have to prepare an apartment for lease and as she is away for a few days R & R in Sydney, Australia, I said I would do the basics for her. This entailed making an inventory, making up the beds, setting up the bathroom etc. Of course, it also meant that I had to check the state of the bed linen and bathroom towels etc.
I can’t imagine what happened to the original bedlinen – it was gone, but in its place was several packets of new linen. So this is what I have laundered and am ironing this afternoon.
At present the towels are rolling around in the tumble dryer and fortunately don’t need to be ironed.
So now I am off to type the inventory and then go for a walk -yes a walk after so long – with my small companion, Lotte.
But before I go, I would like to share this with you. I just received it from an American friend who lives in Paris. I am not envious of her choice of city in which to live – well, not very much. Click here to watch the video is of a one year old baby playing ping pong. I hope you enjoy it too!
