It turns out this blog is quite the family affair. After seeing yesterday's post, my brother offered to write one as well.   I love it.  So here he is, my brother, writing his first ever blog post and bringing boring back... 

Boring is the new black. No, honestly it is. Last Sunday there was even a conference dedicated to all things boring in East London (Boring 2011) - it was pitched as "a one-day event dedicated to the boring, the mundane, the obvious and the over-looked". It was sold out.

Which leads me on to my washing machine. 

On Sunday 6th November we returned home from holidays at around 7pm and I decided there and then to do a long-overdue load of washing.

So, on this occasion I had to decide whether or not to do a load of whites or coloureds. Ultimately I decided on the latter option due to the fact that there were more coloured garments in the proposed load than white ones.
