10 on the 10th - July

10 things I'd rather be doing instead of tackling a huge pile of ironing
  1. Going to a crop.  If you want an example of what a good crop should be, head over to Eclectic Keepsakes and have a little look.  Lovely people, light and airy cropping room, a new project every month and cupcakes.  What's not to like?
  2. Checking out other people's blogs.  Honestly, this could delay turning that iron on for hours - my favourites are on the side bar here but I often click away on links that other people have shown and next thing I hear is 'What time did you say dinner was going to be?' and I find an hour has passed.
  3. Catching up on episodes of CSI:NY that I have recorded.  I love that programme!
  4. Eating cupcakes and muffins.  Look at these lovelies .....
  5. Checking out the hotel I'm going to for my summer holiday - if I close my eyes, I'm almost there ....
  6. Loading books onto my Kindle ready for my holiday
  7. I love cooking so I'm often looking for new recipes, checking out the obvious ones, Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Nigel Slater, Delia Smith etc but I love to try out new ones.  Yesterday my friend Jane told me about Ottolenghi so I will be checking that out.
  8. I hate ironing so much I may even prefer to be at work .  Well, maybe .......
  9. Scrapbooking - obviously!
  10. Checking out the latest class being organised by Shimelle !

Always open to reasons not to iron :) I think I would be daydreaming about Ibiza ALOT. The resort is stunning and adults exclusively...ahhhh yes! Blogging introduces me to many places I've never heard of, yay!

I'm with you...I hate to iron. If it has to be ironed, I don't buy it in the first place. :)

Yep - I can relate to most of those! Not sure I'll ever convert to a kindle though - can't beat the feel of a real book.

Cute post. Thank God I don't have to iron. Just a quick wrinkle free in the dryer and voila! I can't remember the last time I touched an iron...
