You bet your life we are!

‘Monday is washing day, Tuesday’s soup, Wednesday’s roast beef, Thursday is shepherd’s pie, Friday’s fish, Saturday is pay day, Sunday is church, Is everybody happy?’ …. Your turn! ‘ You bet your life we are!’ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

A mingling of Algarve washing, with a splash of happy yellow. Are you joining Andrew at Monday Washing Lines? You’ll have to peg neatly!

    1. Actually, no – though it would have been the perfect day. I didn’t really have enough to justify it. Enjoyed a walk and a bit of company, though πŸ€—πŸ’•

  1. Had to look that one up – The Scaffold – not one I know. Nice selection of washing lines, but this gallery annoys me as I can’t scroll through or enlarge the photos. Anyway, I won’t be grumpy today as the sun is shining and I need to go shopping or there will be no soup or roast beef or fish and chips for tea! See ya later alligator!🐊

    1. You can right click on the individual photos to open them in a separate window. I just discovered this today because it annoyed me too. Happy shopping πŸ€£πŸ’•

  2. So in this scenario, is there no dinner on Monday, Saturday & Sunday? 😊 This was fun, Jo. I can still recall the sweet smell of the clothes that I’d take off the line at my Grandmother’s house when I was a child. Have a great week! 🌞

  3. I feel so out of all this as I couldn’t care less about seeing washing hanging on the line. I dislike all forms of housework and do washing as and when it needs it and it dries in the utility room (where the boiler is) as I refuse to have my garden remind me of work by having washing hanging about. My mother used to despair when she visited me – as does my sister even now. Meantime,l I do photograph washing lines on holiday if they contribute to the picture but that’s all. However, I’m enjoying this post and the comments. Keep it going.

    1. Sorry, Mari! Washing is the one household chore I don’t mind. The machine does it all then I get to admire the view while I peg out. Washing floors – now that’s a chore! πŸ™„πŸ’•

  4. I popped over to read Andrew’s post about washing lines when I saw it mentioned on yours. Whoever could have envisaged a whole thread of chats about washing! I only peg out from Spring til Autumn as my line doesn’t get any sunshine in winter due to the way the building shadows fall. I peg matching things close to each other (like Andrew!), so if there’s bedding then the pillow cases need to be next to the duvet cover, also the socks in pairs and definitely toe down. If husband puts the washing out I have to sneakily follow him and repeg things to my liking – no, am not a control freak – and yes, I still want him to do it occasionally so I don’t feel a slave to all the housework! (And yes, he does take the mickey out of me because of it!!!)

    1. Haha… love this comment. My OH doesn’t hang out the washing very often, and yes, I usually pop along to hang things out differently. The colour of the pegs doesn’t bother me though 😊

    2. I’m with you on most of it. Mick throws the washing at the line like some kind of free for all. Must be a man thing, or another way of getting out of chores you don’t like πŸ€£πŸ’•

      1. I have to hold my words back when I am cringing at him and how he hangs out – otherwise it would be another ‘job’ that is ‘only mine’ !

    1. You don’t know the version by Scaffold? Mike McCartney and Roger McGough. I was going to include the video but was sure everyone would know it, Margaret πŸ™„πŸ’•

      1. I wouldn’t say that. You know lots of much more worthwhile things that I don’t. This was just a bit of Monday morning daftness πŸ™„πŸ’•

  5. Jo, I don’t quite understand why but I find hanging washing out and watching it flapping away in the breeze oddly serene and comforting! These are lovely photos and I love the inventive way of hanging washing from high up. My funniest story regarding washing was when I called my son who was home to ask him to hang out the washing! Although he’d helped me as young and seen me to it endless times, the then teenager took it upon himself to hang everything on one side of the rotary washing line! It was sagging to the ground under the weight! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    1. I never ask my husband to do it because he throws it on the line as if the washing’s been in a fight, Annika πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ A lot of the apartments here have no choice other than to dangle the washing up high. Wash day where you are? I’m leaving mine till tomorrow. Monday’s walking day…like most of the others. πŸ™‚

      1. πŸ˜‚ I’m laughing at your clothes looking as if they’ve been in a battle … and my husband is just the same. I’ve actually seen him physically wrestle a duvet cover onto the line!πŸ˜€ Wash days from now on are the sunny days – tomorrow promises to be wonderfully Spring-like so a wash will definitely be out! I hope you’ve had a wonderful walking Monday … and a joy to join you from afar! xx

  6. For me everyday is pretty much the same. Classes,bath,lunch,studies,dinner ,bed..that is almost my everyday routine..sounds pretty boring right? Your weekdays seem pretty colourful! The pictures are so vibrant,brought an instant smile on my face (:
