It's finally time for Wordless Wednesday with a Twist, over at American Mum's blog. I say finally, because she moved a few weeks ago, so WWWAT fell to the wayside in the midst of that chaos.
But I have to admit that when Rachel announced the theme, I was apprehensive. You see, for the most part, all of the WWWAT'ers are in the North American continent. And now that she's moved home, even American Mum is back in the USofA.
See, I'm the only one in the Southern Hemisphere. And so a theme called, "Summertime/July" strikes fear in my heart. So with that said, here's My Personal Take on July. I won't call it Summertime, coz... well... I can't. I'm writing this with two shirts, a polar fleece jacket, and jeans on. Obviously Summertime would be beyond irony.
July for me is termed up in one phrase. "I hate laundry". You see, in NZ it's kind of unusual to own a drier, and besides, it's expensive to run. So in NZ, where snow (in my area) is a not-happening, you deal with rain. Days upon days of rain. That means the laundry piles up and piles up and then I do half a dozen loads in one day to get caught up.
Yesterday we didn't have enough line space, so we had the drying rack out too.
Laundry is everywhere! Here's one of Oce's pile, ready to make a trip up to her dresser.
Sweatshirts, runny noses, jeans and a bit of cabin fever. I love playing with pegs on a clothes rack.
This is the pile of clean laundry. That's not all of it. And it all needed folding. Imagine my excitement when I came home to find it all folded! I had to stop from jumping up and down.
Sheepies and sleepers. Is that girl gorgeous OR WHAT?
I heart footed sleepers. They are awesome! Can you tell by the pilling that she wears this sleeper constantly? It's only 4 months old.
Wellies, rain boots, or gummies - gumboots are a staple. You need boots so you don't spend the whole winter drying out baby shoes!
Lots of cuddles. They keep you warm you know!
