How's your Washing Hanging?

Towels not paired.

Have you ever thought about washing on a clothes line.
Are socks in pairs of the same kind!
Are underpants  of the male persons all together!
Are the women/children of the house's knickers all neatly put in place!
Are handkerchiefs if used all pegged together!
Are your white's snow white!

All of these things I was taught to be placed towards the inside of the clothes line.

Are all the towels put in pairs!

So you get my drift...thicker clothes on the outside of the clothes line and smaller items towards the middle.
I was also taught to hang the wet clothes in a tidy manner, plus your washing reflects upon your cleanliness and tidiness of inside your house and yourself. Being taught this when I went to school years ago I still try and carry out what I was taught regardless how strapped for time I am, and I am appalled at some women's plus men's clothes lines. 
I wonder what their houses look like inside.

A house inside I was taught should be clean and tidy but looked lived in.

How many women know how to iron a table cloth correctly these days!  Though not used often many of these items these days are geared towards easiness which is good :)
We don't iron much at all, if at all only when necessarily.

Thinking back I remember taking great pride in ironing, which included sheets, towels, table clothes, shirts with the seam at the back ironed, the serviettes white ones crisp and spotless.  Even to this day my 87 year old father has white crisp serviettes, of course I am refereeing to cloth ones.  Who does this for him, ME :)  At my home I use paper ones.

Sometimes The Colour Doesn't Work!

The Pink Iceberg Rose is what I call a delicate colour.  I recall when this rose was first sold and it was unbelievable that it had pink in it, it was bred to have that colour.  However many people believed it wasn't pink after being planted for 1 year.  Each year I take a photo of it and it's always got pink in it.  Iceberg Roses are known for blooming and blooming.
