Two Things Work/Book


This idea for Two/Things came almost immediately because I have just done a posting on Lily and her laundry methods, which involved labour saving devices such as carefully folding slightly damp clothes on driers which then dried perfectly straight. I thought this was a very good idea (being essentially lazy), and incorporated this into my own laundry techniques, but then took this concept a stage further by fashioning a trouser press for my son's school trousers between two heavy encyclopedias. Disgraceful.

We have a lot of books which I like to read, but sometimes I like to get some work out of them. And sometimes I have to put down the book and work too. LOL

like that.
I needed the reminder... Maybe I will get something done... maybe I won't - I forgot about it yesterday. Hopeless.

Very good interpretation! I love how your mind interprets these challenges every week. It's such a treat.

I just left this information re: Harry Potter over on my blog in response to your comment, but I thought I'd post it here, too.

Re: Harry Potter... I didn't get into the craze while it was happening because the books weren't alive for me. I've seen all the movies, but still couldn't get into the books. Then my brother gave me the audio books read by English actor Jim Dale and I became a total convert! My suggestion: get the books in audio format and listen to them. Jim Dale does an EXCELLENT job. There's also an audio version read by Stephen Fry that's suppose to be quite good, too, but I haven't heard his. My recommendation would be to go with Jim Dale.

Hmmm, what a great idea! I'm going to have to try this dryer technique when I get my own dryer...
