I was ironing sheets I had just brought in from the line, saw a small lump under the sheet just as I was about to iron, tentatively removed sheet to see (it could have been a spider) but it was a little ladybird. I removed it and put it outside, but it dropped to the floor and I couldn't find it ....so I carried on with my ironing, and Sad Sad Sad when I lifted my sheet up it was all squashed on the ironing board.

Now it either had a twin or it teleported itself back under the sheet, but either way....I ironed it. Crying or Very sad

What is a ladybird?  I assume you mean a small insect with black dots on its back.  In other parts of the world, they are called ladybugs.

Was it in the morning?  Ladybugs seldom fly at your request.  They are temperature stimulated...meaning they will only fly when the temperature is high enough.

Garden Style wrote:Once ladybugs warm up, their first impulse is to disperse and seek food and water to replenish their energy reserves. If you release ladybugs during the day, they disperse AWAY from your landscape, leaving you sad and wondering where all of the ladybugs went!

HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL LADYBUG RELEASE IN YOUR LANDSCAPE:

Place the ladybug container near plants with heavy populations of pest insects (aphids, mealybugs) on which the ladybugs will feed and lay eggs.

Release ladybugs in the early evening when temperatures are cooler. Consider opening their container under a box and leaving there during the night.

Spritz the surrounding vegetation with a mist of water so they can hydrate while acclimating to the area overnight.

If there is dew, the spritz of water isn’t necessary. Some experts even recommend a spritz of water inside of their container in lieu of applying it to vegetation.

Consider placing an index card with a few drops of honey on it near the ladybug container while leaving it overnight. Ladybugs will feed on the honey as a quick energy source until they start eating aphids.

DO NOT release ladybugs during the day or in the mornings.

You probably ironed the ladybug's sister.

We call them ladybirds, usually red with black spots, there seems to be lots around at the moment.....different coloured ones too.

Interesting about them only flying if the temp is high enough, I didn't know that.

Well there is a reason for this.
We have some huge trees in the garden, a Christmas tree especially, once stood in the lounge now planted in the garden. Over the years it has grown like a Redwood, with branches that spread right  over the washing line....which in turn attracts lots of birds. So to avoid dropout the  sheets dont have chance to spread out and dry crease free.

I haven't seen clothes hung on a line in a million years.

And I don't own an iron. Shocked

Sometimes the old fashioned ways are the best imo, obviously living in Manchester the weather plays a factor, but leaving clothes out overnight when it's raining, the smell is amazing when the clothes are dry.

Presumably someone irons your clothes for you, shirts etc.
