Mildly Out of Sorts

I've been feeling a bit glum despite efforts to cheer myself up. Today was one of those days when, if I were still in the cycles, I would think I had PMS. Without that excuse, I guess I'm just ... a bit out of sorts. I locked myself out of my office, I kept dropping things, I spilled something greasy on my favourite pants. There is a strong, rather cold, wind blowing, and my walk with Robinson in the park this afternoon was not all that pleasant. I did badly on all my exercises on Wii Fit, and it told me I had a fit age of about 65 :( (previously, I had come in at considerably under my age). Robinson now appears to have an upset tummy, which is going to necessitate my giving his bum a wash...

It's not late, but I feel that I should go to bed and get this day over with.

Some days are just like that. I hope you -- and Robinson -- feel better in the morning.

Ugh. In the hopes that you'll be feeling back in sorts by the time you read this, I'll offer a wonderful grease-cleaning tip. If you don't need it, or if the trousers are delicate dry-clean only, skip the rest!

Take an old, clean toothbrush, dunk it in washing-up liquid (just regular, not for machine dish-washers!) and rub into the grease spot in circular motions. Then wash as normal. I found a video on-line a while ago done by a woman who'd been 'a lady's maid for many years', and it's worked so far for me.

lady schrapnell is right about using washing-up liquid (dish soap for us North Americans) for grease on fabric. This often works even after you've washed and dried the item.

Some days just seem to go slightly wrong from beginning to end. I hope Robinson feels better soon.

Sometimes, the universe is an obstacle course. Some other times, it's a downhill walk toward a field of flowers. Your other times are coming.
