I think it’s called displacement or is it deferral? Anyway instead if tackling a pile of ironing I baked a cake-
Pineapple Upside-down Cake.
If it comes out badly cover it with custard and if it comes out well take some photos and blog it!
I am so happy now August is almost over…..September and October are my favourite months – well Autumn really; a few more weeks and I might be able to get away with lighting up the wood burner!
Because of the huge increase in fuel prices I am going to see how long I can keep away from using my tumble dryer. I know most eco aware people are probably crossing themselves when they hear mention of a tumble dryer but if you don’t want your house looking like a Chinese laundry and it’s pouring with rain outside then what can you do?
I have bought myself a new clothes horse and plan do dry things out in my lean-to as much as is possible but clothes can and do go musty if you can’t dry them quickly and that defeats the whole point of washing them doesn’t it?
At the end of my road a new development of luxury flats have been built….but the sadness of it is there is no provision for drying washing outside….some of the new owners in the social block have been hanging washing over their balconies which looks awful but if there is nowhere else for them to dry their laundry what can they do?
