Pillow cases galore by happypat

Pillow cases galore

I spent the afternoon ironing all todays bedding used by the B&Bers.
I actually like ironing bedding. I have one of those ironing presses you can use sitting down. I watch TV while I’m doing it, usually Escape to the Country.
I managed to get the sheets reasonably dry outside & finished them off over the Aga.

I must remember to order a new cover as it was a real nuisance coming off the board today.

Three good things:
1. Cathy & Garth finally got off on their holiday this morning. Plane delayed over three hours & diverted via Doha to Auckland & then on to Christchurch. This flight has been a real saga over the last few weeks.
2. Stir fry tonight, my favourite.
3. I was a bit cross with the b&bers last night. They asked for a lift to the Cartford , said they would text me around 10.30pm but had t heard anything by10.45.
In the end I had to go & root them out, they had met other staff from their workplace. I told them it took me back to picking up wayward teenagers....they did laugh! A grand bunch of chaps with important jobs. Then they stayed downstairs chatting so I had to get out of bed to put the lights off!
Quite a pile of pillow slips.. Sounds like those B&Ber's were a bit of a pain... even if they were nice chaps.. Hope C&G's holiday all goes well from here ..

We had a discussion with friends about their mid thirties nephew just last night. He stayed with them 4 days, took Uber to his training every morning and then back to their place in the evening. Did not eat breakfast, big IT job, drank way more alcohol than they thought he should, wanted dinner late at night, very self centered. We decided he is the typical Millennial, just thinks about himself. We call those sit down itinerary “mangles”. They are amazing and fast when you know what you are doing. Your pillowcases are crisp and lovely.

@julzmaioro @louannwarren Well the guys were a bit of a pain last night but really they are great guests....the only ones I have these days, they stay often & a great source of ready cash. It was a meet up that ended up as a sort on business meeting. I think they were a bit thoughtless but men are sometimes. They have incredible stressful jobs so give them lots of leeway.

You have some beautiful linen. It has to be a true pleasure to stay at your B&B.

I haven't ironed anything in years
February 13th, 2020  
I can feel the softness of the pile!

@essiesue Thank you Sue....I do like proper cotton sheets but they do need ironing...I’m really fussy about the beds!

Not my favourite job these days I am afraid - it gets my arms and shoulders in no time ! But that piles looks lovely and I can almost smell it from here !!

Ironing and watching TV - linking the useful to the pleasant!
Hubby and I often watch Escape to the country. We love your beautiful countryside.

What @essiesue days and also @louannwarren ! As you say men are naturally thoughtless! I would put rules down- if I don’t hear from you by.....I’m not coming. And. Please turn out the lights when you retire to bed!

VML this shot...these attractive sheets. They look sensous especially with those deep hems.

@gijsje Thank you Bep....like wise with your country which I have got to know a little through your lovely photos!
February 13th, 2020  
@maggiemae Yes I should do exactly that but after three years it’s the first blip we have had....I’m sure they thought nothing of it! Otherwise they are no trouble....away early after breakfast & the6 never bother if they have the same sheets on from the week before if they are only in for a couple of nights.

Ironing, not a job I enjoy
February 13th, 2020  
I was ironing and watching Escape to the country today as I do most days. My pet hate ironing ( I need that press you have!) at least I can dream of a lovely house in the country while doing it! It always amazes me how much money these people have to buy a house - especially if they live in a London!

I despise ironing like Pamand don’t have a TV to watch while doing it...I do get to look out my windows into the forest and down to the ocean though so I have nothing to complain about

Lovely shot ; watch that programme too 😉
February 14th, 2020  
@pamknowler Plus how young some of them are to have all that money.....selling a house in London area & coming up North seems to be a good move Pam! Wish they would come & buy ours, 🤨

@jgpittenger Well who would look at TV with that view Jane....we get to see it too through your photos!
February 14th, 2020  
Wow... I've never ironed a sheet or pillowcase in my life. I like he look of he stacked linens.
February 14th, 2020  
Well done, not my favourite job
February 14th, 2020  
Oh I do love a good pile of ironing!!!! So satisfying getting it all done, folded up and away!
I'm laughing at all the different responses to the ironing thing!!! I must say having taken up with Marie Kondo there are some things I now fold rather than iron but I'm with you when it's cotton.
I like to have tv on too!!!
