So I got up this morning to find the laundry just awash with dirty clothes. As Miss O 1 said, just dumped in there waiting for the servants! Given neither of us are servants, while we were out shopping today we decided to establish some ORDER in our laundry!
A trip to Bunnings provided two laundry bins/baskets/buckets.
I did type up some lovely signs:
We found a cigarette lighter in the washing machine today. Where we washing Mr O’s work clothes? Yes we were!
In the end, I just went with the handwritten rules. I couldn’t find the sticky tape!
We also invested in a NEW iron and ironing board. The old iron was literally falling apart. This laundry is big enough for us to leave the ironing board up for that last minute pressing!
I tried to get the water out of the dishwasher tonight – I am worried about it stagnating – but it doesn’t drain and it leaked all over the kitchen floor again. I don’t think anyone has used this dishwasher for
YEARS quite some time. I also think the leaking has damaged the floor in the kitchen, as I can see a gap developing between the cupboards and the floor.
We bought scales today – the weigh the human body type, not the weigh the baking ingredients type. As I type this line I am eating a little ice-cream. I think this is not good.
What laundry battles do you face in your house and what rules do you have in place?
