Environmental Whore

“Mum!”
“Yes dear?”
“Can you explain something to me?”
“I’ll try.”
“Why did I spend all day yesterday rigging up a washing line for you if you still insist on using the bloody tumble drier!”
“Well if you look outside you’ll see that it’s already full.”
“Full?”
“Yes……this is just a little overflow.”
"Ah.....you're so trying!"
"I shall endeavour to try harder."




But it's just a seasonal issue:

Giveaway at Balsam Hill

Now I wonder which is worse?

Buy a fake one that can be used again and again until I'm old and "grey?"

Go out to a Christmas tree farm and chop one down? That wouldn't be "popular."

Although the smell of real pine can be "enticing."

Probably best to take it to a "vote" although I expect we'll do the usual = cut off the top of the one in the "garden."

I found myself wishing I had an outdoor clothesline today as it would have been the perfect day to hang out laundry. Alas - no such thing here and I am stuck with the tumble dryer. I can still remember how great stuff used to smell when I had to bring the clothes in off the line for my mom. If they could make a dryer sheet that smelled like that, I'd be in heaven - almost!
