Well, still living outside the basket, in that the role reversal has continued with consent form both parties.
I'm not entirely managing to maintain full distance from the basket, but have refrained from all but a tiny couple of bits of necessary ironing that I wanted to wear immediately.
Which begs a question.... Do I need to rename the Blog? Not sure that any other name would suit it, although if I come across suggestions then I might give it a try. My whole OU journey began because of the basket so I would like to keep some reference to it at least!
