Photo a Day: 19th January

There are days when I am convinced that I somehow magically do the laundry for another family along with my own.  We're a family of three and remember that one of us is still small, so how come we produce so much dirty laundry?  I think it multiplies in the basket ..

I too am convinced that the neighbours have a magic key and their ironing appears in my basket daily. There are 4 of us- but surely we can't generate that much stuff!

I haven't had a washing machine for the last 2 weeks, our laundry basket is flowing over the bedroom. Looks like I might have a machine by to night. Oh no then I have to do some ironing!

Oh I'm with you there! it is never ending!!

I'm convinced it multiplies! One of my possible photos for today is something similar to yours only mine is the ironing that's come back and needs to be put away.

Yep. It's because, even though we are a family of four, only one of us does any laundry. Sometimes, naturism is appealing!!

My lot have a tendancy to put clean things BACK in the washing basket even tho it's clean so I spend my time sorting it all out a again and we have 10 baskets...one for everyone, white one, towel one, school washing one and brights one...it's never ending!!!

I do know what you mean, Ruth! When Doug comes home and his laundry is done he'll say, "Hey! The laundry fairy came today" so which I reply, "She must like you better because she never does mine!" :o)

Is that it? Where's the rest? Mine looks like Ben Nevis and I've just done a load of ironing!!

Mine seems to breed also... I have my mother's bed linen once a fortnight now; it's surprising how much that has upset my previous laundry routine. I still haven't sorted out a balance...
And the laundry seems to increase exponentially all the same - though I finally realised that one reason I have so many extra loads these days, is that The Boy puts stuff for washing when it doesn't really need it ("but I wore it 2 days..." - "yes, but only for a couple of hours after school; you could wear it another evening...") AND also he has had yet another growth spurt - he is Big. His clothes are also Big... so I can't wash so many garments in one load any more... Why didn't I realise that sooner?
Sympathy with your washing. I must catch up with mine by the end of the weekend... besides, I'm off to Spain for a week next Friday. If it's not up to date before I go, it will be chaos while I'm away and guess who'll end up sorting it all out on my return (clue, the only female member of the household)
Good luck with the laundry pile!

I'm just nodding in agreement. After being away for three weeks and TE being here for two, it has taken me four days to catch up on his alone!

Washing? I have to do that but ironing, well, I have a daughter and she lives ten doors away in the same street. They are struggling at the moment because they are trying to sell the house in Manchester while buying the house here. Two morgages means tight budget.
I suggested that I pay her ten pounds to do my ironing. She likes ironing I used to like it but not any more - problems solved.
