Labels and Champers

Bloggie friends!

There’s a reason why, on some clothes, the label instructs: “Hand wash only”.

Putting said clothes in the washing machine and then setting the programme to “Delicates” does NOT constitute the same thing. Ahem.

Charlie says: I am liking the sun on my belleh.


Would you believe it but the one day this week where the weather prediction is for lots of thundery rain for London is tomorrow – the Day of The Wedding?!?! Oh dear!

But I still got my champers chilling in the fridge though! Yay!

Cheers to everyone!

I bet the sun feels good on your belly. My mommy and I are setting the alarm to watch the wedding here in America. We love Royal weddings. I'll be dusting off my crown.

Oh, that's always the way it is: rain when you don't want it. And I've never been able to pray away such rain!

I have done that very thing: washed something I shouldn't have. It was a long time ago. At least I learned my lesson.

Jen and I do hope you have a good day, despite the rain. Maybe it will take a detour!!

I'm not sure when I last washed anything, but hosiery, by hand. Enjoy the wedding ... and the champagne!

Kea said...

Try your hand-washables in an appropriate-sized mesh laundry bag, on delicate. :-)

Well, that's the most I do. Actually, I don't think I really have any delicates, and even if I do, they go in on regular...in a mesh bag. LOL.

Charlie, that sunshine looks so blissful!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Yay for royal weddings! Although it's so early for us, I doubt I'll be seeing it live. Exciting time. Hopefully the rain holds off.

Lydia K said...

Hope that weather isn't a portent of how the marriage shall be.

Charlie has the cutest belleh.

ABBY said...

Oh dear what happened to said clothing item?

The sun suits you well.

mshatch said...

what? putting the setting to delicate does not constitute a hand wash? uh oh, I'm in trouble now...

but I'm not going to feel too badly for Kate and Will. Rain or no I expect they'll manage :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Charlie doesn't have to worry about hand wash or dry clean!

klahanie said...

Aha, and I note you have continued on with my fascinating theme in regards to laundry :)
I shall not be watching the wedding. Much rather stare at my clothesline :)
Take care,

The Words Crafter said...

I've got my dvr set to record the whole thing. I do hope it's pretty!!!!

Um, do you know how often I just throw stuff in the laundry that even says dry clean? I've only ever ruined one thing and all it really did was change the color.....

m.q said...

Niki said...

Champers? ohhhh champaine! hahaha you ole slosh you. hehe

Ann said...

I think I will pop some Champers too. Any excuse!!!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

sadly I have found out about the washing thing one too many times! I am stubborn and tend to try and wash some things that I am not supposed to wash. You would think that I would learn.
Thunderstorms for the Royal Wedding? Ohhhh nooooooo!!
I am getting up at 4am here to watch...what time is it on for your time? Can't wait! I wish them nothing but the best. Hugs to you and Charlie! xoxoxo

Jemi Fraser said...

I hope the weather clears up for the wedding - it will disappoint so many people if the weather is miserable!

Summer Ross said...

Well have fun at the wedding! And charlie looks to really be enjoying himself

Simon Kewin said...

Really? Darn. I thought it just meant, you know, put the items in the machine by hand ...

Ellie said...

I'm keeping everything crossed for good weather tomorrow! Please let it be sunny . . .please!

Madeleine said...

Good for Charlie, My ginger Princess also likes to adopt that pose. I once put a dry clean only Laura Ashley dress in the wash by mistake. Aaaargh! Never again.
Yes I hope the rain stays off the happy couple. :O)

Al said...

My philosophy is if clothes don't survive the 'delicates' cycle they don't deserve to survive at all :-)

Pk Hrezo said...

Oh dear, William and Kate will have rain on their wedding day? Such a bother.

But Charlie's looking handsome and relaxed as always. :)

stacy said...

This must be so exciting for you guys!

Hannah and Lucy said...

Isn't it typical of the British weather to choose the "The Wedding" to be the only wet day for weeks!
Hope Charlie going to keep topping up your glass with bubbly so you don't miss a minute.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

KarenMcG said...

Ruh roh! Someone must have had some issue with the laundry! I hope it wasn't ruined.

Charlie, love your bellieh shot!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Our new washer has a hand wash cycle. Mommy says it leaves the clothes as sopping wet as when she actually hand washes the clothes.

Claudia Del Balso said...

Hi Jennifer & Charlie,
Hope this forecast is wrong. Wish you lots of sunshine for tomorrow. Charlie's so photogenic as always.

Stephen Tremp said...

Don't they have two carriages, om covered with plastic in the event of rain? Are you going to the wedding? If so, please say hi to the queen for me.

Manzanita said...

But I heard that rain is usually predicted on royal events but at the last minute the sun comes shining through. (reminds me of a song) We'll see.

Bossy Betty said...

Charlie is loving the sun! What is he wearing to the wedding?

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Can't wait to see Kate's dress!

Sorry about the washing incident. I've done it too.

Marg said...

It will really be too bad if it rains tomorrow on the wedding. Maybe it will hold off long enough for them to get out of the church and in their carriage. Should be a fun day. Charlie, are you going to the wedding?? You need your own carriage. Take care.

Brian said...

Charlie looks ready for the wedding, rain or not!

notesfromnadir said...

Unfortunately, hand wash only is there for a reason--I've ruined too many outfits by ignoring that label. Now I actually make sure that my clothes don't contain that label!

Charlie looks like he's in his element!

Rain rain go away, it's a big important Wedding Day! :)

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

We purr that you have both had a very happy day today.......and mama would love to share the champers with you....rain or not.....:)

India Drummond said...

Oops. I do that 'delicate wash' thing, if that. Honestly, I don't buy hand wash clothes! I'm a jeans and t shirts kind of girl.

Here's hoping the showers hold off! Yay for the wedding! Yay for champers!

Holly Ruggiero said...

Oooo, I always try to avoid the hand wash only labels.

Elizabeth Mueller said...

oooh, I LOVE thundery rain... Let me know if you capture any rainbows! ;)

The Golden Eagle said...

I hope your clothes weren't irreparably washed . . . especially if they were ones you really liked. It's sad to see a favorite piece of clothing get damaged.

I hope it doesn't rain tomorrow in London!

Clarissa Draper said...

Well, it may not rain.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Oh, no! It can't be yucky tomorrow, of all days. So, how do Londerners (and Charlie) like Kate? :-)

Brigid said...

Enjoy the wedding on Friday, we are going to watch it too. Champers at 11.00am anyone?

Tracy said...

so what did you ruin by putting it in the wash machine on delicates? I've runied many a pieces of clothing and it makes me so irritated!
I certainly hope that the storms stay away from the fairy tale wedding...will be checking in, no doubt!

Lynda R Young said...

it depends on the item... I've set a hand wash only item to delicate and it worked... (I might have been lucky)

lupie said...

Sun looks perfect on your belleh Charlie dear!!! :)

Royal wedding with thunderly rain?!!
Well, all I can say is, "Rain, rain, go away?" Hope Mr. Sun shines up tomorrow for the Royal Wedding!!!

Rahma Krambo said...

Where will you and Charlie be during the wedding? Stay dry!

Susan Fields said...

You look so comfy, Charlie! We haven't had much sun around here lately at all, but today we finally got some!

Theresa Milstein said...

Sorry about the destroyed garment. I hate when that happens!

Turns out the weather cooperated for the wedding. Hope you're enjoying your holiday!

Hart Johnson said...

Oi! I tend to wash anyway, but it's hit and miss, isn't it? I hope you enjoyed the wedding!

Rene said...

LOL, yes, hand washing is important for some items. Ask me how I know. . . .

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

We are glad it did not rain on the wedding!
Thank you for the kind words about 'our' eagles.
Happy Friday,

fairyhedgehog said...

Some washing machines have a handwash program. Sadly, mine doesn't and a mohair shawl was almost felted!

Ann Dziemianowicz said...

Cheers to you too! Thanks for stopping by my bloggie and helping out Janine! So appreciated. :)

Looks like the Royals got a nice day after all.
