When we arrived home from Alice Springs, we of course had a mound of washing to do.... that I promptly did (the first moment I had a chance) - what a wonderful housewife! The problem with doing a LOT of clothes washing is that there's an inevitable LOAD of clothes folding. Thus my problem is created.
I have no problem washing the clothing. I have no problem hanging the clothing on the line or putting it in the dryer. I have no problem taking it out of the dryer or taking it off the line. But when it comes to ironing and folding, I find both tasks so arduous! I usually just leave the clothes in the baskets until we've used most of those clothes again - then I'll drag myself to the few clothes that are left to fold and put them away.
The problem with this method - we just didn't have enough baskets or floor space to contain all the clothes that were washed after our holiday. But I was not going to be beaten! I found the perfect spot for all the clothes.
LQ doesn't sleep in her cot anymore (unfortunately), so why not find a more practical use for it?
P.S. I finally spent a good full morning folding the all the clothes that were dumped in the cot. It turns out sometimes I can't even stand having that amount of laundry left unfolded - and it was getting too hard searching out specific pieces of clothing.
