washing woes

washing woes

Oops. I fell off the blogtoberfest wagon. In my defence - last week was a rough one. There was a family afflicted with gastro, a washing machine that had died (after being serviced twice in as many months) and a clothes line that snapped at the posts and fell down. Moreover it was school holidays and we had interstate visitors. *exhale* After drowning in washing, a few visits with three children in toe to the local laundry mat (@ $5/wash load – OMG!) eventually finding an afternoon to get to an electrical store to buy a new washing machine (that naturally was delivered on a rainy day!) and a Sunday afternoon installing a new clothes line - I have finally come up for air.

  1. wow! what a week. And snap! Our washing machine died the day before we headed off for our trip. Which means when we get home one of our first tasks will be going out to get a new one while jet-lagged! Here's hoping the jet lag isn't too bad and we can make a good decision. Otherwise $5 a pop! that's madness...

  3. I do feel so sorry for you. I've had the machine woes and the trip to the laundromat but not all the rest (except the three kids but mine are all adults, though whose to tell!). Hoping your life is filled with sunny days and sunflowers for a while now. Cherrie

  4. Suddenly the $1.50 a load at the caravan parks in the US seem mega-cheap. 5 bucks? Seriously?

    Hope this week is better for you. xx

  6. Oh no Sal it sounds like you weren't meant to get any washing done with all of that going against you. I hope that the sun is shining and it's a better week all round for all of you. Take care. xx
