While I can justify a little mess, some jobs needs doing wether I like it or not. Washing is one job that I really don't like. In my opinion it is one of the least rewarding jobs around the house, because even if you have washed every possible thing, you are still wearing clothes and they too will need to be washed and so it means that the job is never finished - you can never have an empty laundry basket!
I write about this tonight because I am drowning in washing. You see coupled with bad weather, a broken washing machine and lots of sewing, the washing has been mounting. And so today, with sunshine and a working machine I did 8, yes 8, loads of washing! Madness. You would think that I would feel content, the job is finally done. But no, not really, because now there are 8 loads of clean washing that needs folding and putting away and I am sure that come morning there will be enough washing to justify another load. See never ending!
So, if anyone out there has got any wonderful ideas to help me get on top and stay on top of the washing it would be much appreciated. Or better still, if you wanted to drop in a help me out that would be ideal!

Giving Miss A's crazy hair a crazy makeover
Doing school with boy. Here he is learning about the letter 'T'.
Playing in the rain
Making spacemen out of styrofoam balls and aluminium foil
It has been a lot of fun coming up with things to capture and keep their attention. It however has also meant that I have not been able to get around to doing any sewing or craft. This was getting a little frustrating, and so today, while the sun was shining, I pushed then out the door and made a bee-line for my sewing machine. That reversable coat is finally getting some attention and I should have some pictures up soon.

When each of my babies were born it took me a good couple of days to get to know them. It was partly because when I first saw them they looked nothing like what I thought they would.
Boy was blond with blue eyes and I did not think this was even possible, given my dark features. So when little Anja was born, tiny and dark, I was again surprised and a little confused - weren't they all suppose to look the same? And then when baby girl was born she was dark like her sister but had features more similar to her brother.
I was looking through some photos today I realised how similar they really are. It turns out that I was wrong. They fit. They're ours. We'll keep them.
