|Hestia and the ironing monster
I have a monster mountain of ironing that needs slaying and I CAN'T DO IT!
Yessiree - yesterday my vorpal blade (ie the iron) threw its hand in and promptly tripped the main circuit breaker every time I tried to iron something. Three times the power went down!
The final time was when my beamish boy was doing something on the mac with a binweevil or some such social networking crap for under 12s. He called upstairs to me 'You need to stop doing the housework - the electricity doesn't like it!'
And who is to argue with either a grumpy beamish boy or the Bandersnatch that is Electricity?
Yes, I know that the FIRST thing that I should have done this morning is nip out and buy a new iron, but, well, I need to do a LOT of research into WHICH iron is going to best meet our needs. That should take me at least until the weekend!
Frabjous day! NO IRONING CAN BE DONE!! I may go outside and check that there is plenty of mimsy in my borogroves. Or maybe I'll just sit down with a cup of tea and read a book.
