Anybody who knows me or how has spent any time in my house, knows that I am not a very good housekeeper. No matter how hard I try, my house never looks as tidy as what I would like it, there is always a cup left somewhere or a toy that is not packed way or books (piles of them) beside my bed or that one sock left laying in the corner of the room. And that is on a good day. You see while I do not put up with dirt and grime (dirty sheets and towels, dirty bathroom and kitchen especially), a little mess and disorganisation seems to match my personality and really doesn't bother me much. I would rather our house to be welcoming and comfortable, a place where people can relax and feel at home, than a hotel where everything is prestine and unlived in.
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!
