To have done ALL the washing?

I know I'm not. I just want to brag a bit. I don't think I've ever done all the washing before in my entire life.

Two empty hampers, everything washed, dried and put away. To achieve the putting away bit I had to do some pretty ruthless culling of everyone's drawers and wardrobe. DS2 had SIXTY THREE too small items in his drawers. The teenagers had loads too. I've Kondoed all their drawers so it all looks fabulous.

Anyway. I'm now onto the bedding, which I only did a few days ago, because I'm on a laundry roll and don't want to waste the sunshine. I might even iron my duvet cover.

Has anyone else ever achieved this wondrous feat? I feel like I should get a medal.

I feel like you should get a life wink. Well done you. When you're done, do you fancy sorting ours out too?

I am in awe. Well done Essie! star

What, you put it away? Actually all of it, away... in the cupboards?

No, I don't believe that. That's only happens in mythology.

EssieTregowan Thu 15-Jun-17 12:47:14

That's what I thought Aeryn.

But like a Laundry Goddess, I have made it happen.

I am basking in my own fabulousness right now.

If you have the urge to iron a duvet cover I would suggest you have been out in the sun too long. ....

EssieTregowan Thu 15-Jun-17 12:48:42

It probably won't happen tbf. I'm not even sure where we keep the iron.

Well done! Now for some cakebrew

My laundry basket is often empty but there's only me, my dh & baby son so not too much stuff (I also tumble dry a lot).

My iron is at the back of a cupboard somewhere. hair straighteners do the trick for collars and uniform labels.

Laundry though? Do you not have a handsome sea-captain to rob, Essie? And i hope you've left some food out for them shamrock

grin I'm book Essie though so I'm Cornish. Not sure what a Cornish emoji would be. A pasty?

Njordsgrrrl Thu 15-Jun-17 13:04:09

lololol. Pixie perhaps?

Njordsgrrrl Thu 15-Jun-17 13:16:47

Hahaha that's great grin

Wish I'd read it first but it's awesome and don't want to spoil it now by getting the book although I read GoT before the series so...

Seriously though <drags self back on topic> an empty laundry basket is a rare and fine occurrence. It should be celebrated.

I'm jealous you have sun.

I emptied our laundry baskets yesterday and did all the washing. I put mine away, and dds away, dhs will probably stay in a pile on the stairs for the next 3 weeks. That pile will get messier as he pulls things out of it as he wants them.

FreezerBird Thu 15-Jun-17 13:23:13

I did this yesterday as it was the first sunny day I was home for ages.

Unfortunately I got quite overexcited about it all and realised only later that I'd washed the sheets at 30 and delicates at 60.

It all seems okay though so far and I did - briefly - have an empty laundry basket.

NoWordForFluffy Thu 15-Jun-17 13:25:57

I did this on Sunday. 4 loads washed, dried and put away (except DH's stuff as he puts his own stuff away).

The basket was filling again nicely by the kids' bedtime!

This is so obviously a troll thread.

Next you'll be telling us that there were no odd socks lurking in the bottom of the baskets/hampers! shock

Away with you to your bridge. And take your freshly ironed duvet cover with you!. wink

Justmadeperfectflapjacks Thu 15-Jun-17 13:31:07

Tbf I did consider bringing in yesterday's dry washing from the line earlier but dcat is asleep in the basket. . Would surely be cruel to disturb him.

EssieTregowan Thu 15-Jun-17 13:31:24

Definitely not a troll.

Peanut Beaker, cups of poo, Pilates sex.

(Did I get those right?)

SquinkiesRule Thu 15-Jun-17 13:33:18

Load number 3 about to be finished in the machine. Two loads on the line.
Looks like a coat washing day, I think we need to raid the hooks in the hall.

robinia Thu 15-Jun-17 13:33:38

If you haven't ironed anything then you are not a laundry goddess wink

Njordsgrrrl Thu 15-Jun-17 13:36:30

grin yes they're perfect grin

yourcarisnotadiscovery Thu 15-Jun-17 13:42:03
