On Mondays I Have To Pretend . . . . . .

I am a housewife. I wash, shop and then the dreaded housework - what a bore - I hate it! Husband, being retired, comes to the supermarket and we reward ourselves with a cup of coffee and a yum yum. If you have not eaten a yum yum you are definitely missing out!

This afternoon Wonky Knees will be worn out so I shall sit and watch the Olympics. If you have read my profile you will have noticed I am an armchair sports fanatic - I like watching the sailing and cycling road races - they are like a game of chess. I was thinking to myself - if I could be in the Olympics which sport would I choose. I think I would be in a team rather than an individual because if success came your way - what a buzz you would get with your team mates. So I think I would like to be in the Badminton Doubles, Table Tennis, or sailing perhaps. One sport I would definitely not choose would be to be a gymnast - they look underfed and under a lot of pressure from their coaches.
Ah well - no more excuses - I must get on with the cleaning - what a horrible thought.

My mother always used to do the washing on Monday and the housework on Tuesday. I do the housework when it has to be done and I can't get out in the garden. Tidying the outside room is so much more enjoyable.

I do agree with you about housework - always something else to do. I not a huge fan of sport but I felt tremendously pleased and proud of our team when I heard England had got a gold medal yesterday and then another today.

If I was going in for the Olympics I think I would like to be a swimmer simply because I only learned to swim when I was in my mid forties and I'm not very good (don't believe everything you see in profile photos), and it must be wonderful to be able to achieve Olympic standard. Or perhaps a cyclist as I have NEVER learned to ride a bike!! I have led a sheltered life!

Strawberry Jam - Yum Yums are a kind of bun with icing on the top and lemon curd in the middle. What sets them apart is the fact they are very moist. I think they may be 'Waitrose Own'

Yep..for me...cleaning bathrooms is the worst. As this is a B&B (home right now) I have to clean 4 showers, 5 basins, 5 loos and 1 bath! I leave them until they get unbearable and then I clean them with venom and vim!
