This is an outrage

:mrgreen: When did it happen? Why? How?

I just glanced at my washing line and realised, to my horror, that Mr SW and I are turning beige :shock: He has two beige shirts on there. I have one beige shirt and a pair of beige trousers. This cannot be. We are not beige people. We are, in our heads at least, youthful, colourful (certainly in our language), bright and cheerful. Beige we are not.

I demand an explanation. I can't help but wonder if there is some connection with our 4 yr old grandson's recent introduction of us to a neighbour. “These are my grandparents. They're from England and they're very old.”

    Ah, beige: the refuge of the boring, the colourless, the dull. From the tone of your posts I cannot come to terms with you as having any of those 'characteristics' so please go and buy some Dylon in bright, cheerful colours and sort yourselves out. DD

    I'm sure it is only because there has been an accident in the washing machine. I think if you mix lots of bright colours together, you will get beige.

    Thank you, one and all. It's heartwarming to realise that I am not perceived as being beige - at least by those who've never seen me :lol:

    My lovely white lace knickers and my OH's white T-shirts turned beige, we tried everything but it doesn't come out. It just meant buying some new ones!! :)

    LOL!! Stickywicket.... perhaps it was a wardrobe malfunction :) Best you just donate the offending beige items to your local charity and go get yourself something new for Easter.

    Sticky put a bright yellow duster in with the wash, they will come out a bit brighter.

    We seem to have gone Goth in this house, black is all the rage.

    :lol: Tony, no on so many fronts.

    1. Mr SW requires room in a car for his long legs.
    2. I haven't worn a hat since 1967.
    3. Mr SW's shorts are all a conservative navy, black or grey.
    4. He never, ever wears sandals.
    5. I don't think they've ever made a pair of socks, of any hue, which would reach his knees.

    It's OK. Today's washing line is all blues, greys and greens. We've escaped :wink:

    I, personally, just assume that the load on the line that day was actually pegged out b4 globe trotting commenced & the masses & masses of sun we've had bleached all of the amazeballs of technicolour clothing to a beige .... Nowt else could be true for you, not in my mind anyway!!!
