Fun Monday #28



Mum is the host this week and wants to look at our aprons. I think she chose this challenge to catch me out but about three months ago I finally grew up (a bit) and realised that it was easier to wear an apron than have to wash all my clothes every time I whipped up a mess something delicious in the kitchen. So I took myself off to Dunnes and purchased this rather bright apron for €10.

Unlike my mother I do not have any decorative tea towels and only a few working tea towels, I use the dishwasher and anything that needs hand washing is left to drip dry (I decided this as I wasted many hours drying up as a child because we weren't allowed to leave the dishes to dry)!

NOw that's what I call and apron! If you're going to wear one it might as well cover your clothes properly.

That is a lovely fun apron!

Very alluring! ;)
We don't have one either, but that's probably because we never cook anything...

swamp witch said...

Love the polka dots. That is one colorful apron. You could almost wear it as a dress...well, a backless dress.

Rachel said...

I love that apron!!!! I do not own one and therefore, always get stuff on my clothes when I cook.

Beccy said...

Her indoors, my problem is a complete lack of space, mum's problem too much space to fill and hoard!

Misslionheart, my heart bleeds for you!!! I hope you like my poll in your honour!

Thanks Barbara.

Frannie, is it a sign of ageing? as we become sensible.

Thank you for the compliment Asha.

Thanks MJD.

Hear, hear Nikki.

Thanks Debs.

Sam, do you have room to store them?

Thanks Kaytabug.

Mr X maybe if you get one you'll start cooking?

LOL Swampy, you're welcome to borrow it for a night out sometime!

Rachel, I used to be like that then I got fed up and bought my apron.

Stephanie said...

WOW! Awesome apron!!

And Dunnes *sigh*... I love that place. I could spend all day there, and I'm not even a shopper-person. I wish we had them here in the States.

JennieBoo said...

LOVE the red. This apron's kinds funky!

Thanks for sharing with us!

Happy Monday & rest of the week!

Steffi said...

cookiecrumb said...

I wouldn't have expected anything less from you.
Cute!

The Artist formerly Known as Purpleworms (!) said...

if one must wear an apron, then that is the kind to get - vivid and cheerful. I love it!!

Misslionheart said...

So, not wanting to be a party-pooper, here, I popped into Dunnes, bought me a pinny and came home test out my new Digital camera.

(This post is NOT for the faint-hearted)

dawn said...

That is a beautiful apron. It seems you learnt well under your mother's tutelage, even if not what she intended.

Karina said...

Love the apron! Bright and colorful!

So, what is so wrong with drip drying dishes? That's the only way to do it, I say!!

Melissa said...

All this apron talk has made me want an apron of my own. Maybe I should start cooking first? ;)

Love the bright red!

Sabrina said...

Festive and practical--love it!

theotherbear said...

I too spent many wasted hours as a child drying dishes. My sister would wash and I would wipe. Although I always used to say that she wet and I washed and wiped because she was very careless with her washing.

Christine said...

Love your colorful apron. Looks very good on you.
I don't have very many tea towels. I remember too, my mom setting everything out to dry!!

Happy Monday!

Pamela said...

three cheers for another drip dryer.

WT is correct... thats a great apron.
you look so EFFICIENT!

Debbie said...

Well, they'll definitely see ya comin'. ;)

Karmyn R said...

Love the polka dots. I just started wearing an apron too. (in fact, whenever I put it on, I get this weird sensation...I don't know how to describe it but it makes me want to bake)

Sally Lomax said...
