Pegging

I think I have finally battered my OH into pegging me. I know we will need loads of lube but does anyone have any other advice? Must admit I'm nervous to find out what her choice of strap on is lol

Pegging is more of a summer activity. It all goes in the drier in winter. If DH doesn't stop leaving tissues in his clothes that go through the wash and drier I'll peg him to within an inch of his life.

I know it is properly autumn when I stop pegging out smile

I pegged out on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. It was so bright and clear my sheets and towels dried beautifully.
Currently I've a load in the machine (including the bed sheet that DD whipped off my bed because it's blue for her children in need table angry)
I am optimistic my DH will deal with the pegging later.

My ds thinks my pegs are toys for him to play with so they go missing... Keep buying cheap to replace & they break is it best to invest in more expensive ones?!!

I'm having a hot toasted Pegwidge for breakfast, anybody else want one?

The person who owned our house before us put the washing line dispenser thingy (that's the technical term), the wrong way up so we can't use it. This means no pegging in Casa Vince and lots of tumble drier action.

Is that the kind of information you need OP?

I don't like to see pegs left on the line after the washing is fetched in, anyone else? I have one of those naff peg bags to put them in though.

Pegwidge? Is that bread peg bread?

Sounds like the collective wisdom of MN only pegs...
1. In summer
2. Outside
3. Peg choice is up to the individual

<takes pegwidge from JudyJudgy, adds ketchup. Sits and reads paper waiting for OP to return>

I think you should 'peg' him hard. I've always been tempted to suggest this to dp, not that I'd take any pleasure in it, I just want him to be fully aware how much it bloody hurts to have things rammed up your anus.smile

Pegwidge

Peg Bread Peg, bash square, toast, put pegwidge in round hole.
Mmmmmm Naice.

Pegs go rusty if left out in the line do they not insanity? I have a peg bag too

I have no idea what this means and am bit scared to Google it.smile. We don't have any pegs in my house, just an indoor aerier, joys of living in a flat.

My pegs are on sabbatical until spring. I like to imagine them on a naice cruise or something.....

I went to a craft fair yesterday that sold lovely dolly pegs with painted bit so the end. I thought "how sweet".

Pegs should not be left on the line - it's slovenly.

Pegs should be matching.

Clothes need to be hung out in 'groups' & be organised by size/shape.

I line dried 3 loads of washing yesterday - bliss in November!

This is why I love Mumsnet. grin

I finally have a garden after years of living in flats without. I was MOST excited about having a washing line and the bliss of pegging grin

Is it bad peg etiquette to use the same pegs to hang my washing as I do for holding bags of frozen peas closed?

Should I get a separate set?

thornrose Sat 16-Nov-13 07:50:01

Ooh, ooh, I use pegs on all sorts of packaging. Especially those "re sealable" bags that never, ever work!

do you wash your pegs?

Monkeyandanimal Sat 16-Nov-13 07:54:42

Not as such, ivy, but I do splash them about in a bit in a beaker of water after heavy use.

I find plastic pegs far better than the wooden types. Also a rotary line is brilliant on a windy day for drying lots of washing. grin
