  3. Hi Alison,
    This also bought a tear to my eye. The Thursday part sounds good to me! I just finished ironing a few things and my spray bottle broke so I remembered an old Sydney Poiter movie where the wife spends all day ironing with a shaker bottle as did my mum so I thought I should make one out of a water bottle. It did the job and made me smile as I did a little vintage housekeeping ;0)
