Have you thought about getting a steamer? You just hang the clothes on a hanger and steam them. I am seriously thinking of getting one. A friend of mine had one. She only had an iron because she did a lot of sewing and you need the iron to open/flatten seams. You also need one if you want to put creases in trousers or pleated skirts, etc.

I actually like ironing. I don't like having to set up the ironing board.

Taxy, that sounds like a good idea

I will have a look into that as it certainly does sound easier and quicker, thank you

I'm drinking a cheats mint julep. I didn't have any bourbon, so I used Scotch. It's pretty good.

I am really getting into this cleaning mode. I just took all my silk lamp shades and put them in the shower and cleaned them. I took off all the table cloths on the small round tables and put them in the laundry to wash.

We leave for the airport at 4:30 am, we just started packing, there is still laundry in the dryer.

Luckily we will be somewhere where we can easily pick up something if we forget it. I am usually so much more organized than this, and well my partner, isn't...

Wow, that should be a blast BC!

Do you know if there are loads of people going?

Hope you can still recognise some of them

My DH just got done getting a bat out of our house. We also had one in here last summer. We still can't figure out how they get in. Thank goodness our grandson saw it come up from the cellar. I had to get DH out of bed to find it, while grandson and I stayed in the bedroom with the door shut. He found it in the bathroom and finally got it out the front door. It is going to be hard trying to get to sleep now, I am petrified of bats.
