I know that from time to time we have threads about how often people wash bras/towels etc.
I am interested to know what people do when they are on holiday/when they get back. We have been away for 5 nights (Pontins) which was fab, but as it was quite cheap and cheerful we had to take our own towels.
I was just wondering; those of you that prefer to have fresh pjs, towels etc every day, do you relax your standards when you are away? Or do you go to the launderette while you are away? If I had changed our towels daily (which I don't do at home anyway) this would have been 20+ towels for the week, plus 20 sets of pjs, plus swimming towels etc etc.
I have about 5 loads of laundry waiting,, BUT tbh for 4 of us I think that is fairly modest.
I must admit that I had a when I saw your post as I knew you would reply if you were around.
I have to say that when we went away last year (caravan) it was wet weather and dd1 and I spent a very pleasant evening in the warm launderette.
I thought it was today (your due date for your new ds I mean) but didn't want to say. It can get a bit wearing everyone asking "any news" My fil used to phone daily and made me Hope all goes really well for the birth.
In the end (on about day 6 and she was 11 days overdue) I said v sarcastically to fil "oh yes we had the baby and didn't bother to tell you". He wasn't amused. Honestly, what is it with some of them, do they think you will "forget" to let them know!
The best thing we took to Devon last year was a plastic airer. The weather was rubbish but at least we had dry towels.
I am using the dryer but for one load only tonight. (towels, that is my excuse and I am sticking to it!) Load 2 is going on the airer, load 3 ready to go first thing in the washing machine.
I am hoping that load 3 and 4/5 can have a good flap on the line tomorrow. However the house was v chilly on our return (5 deg in our loft bedroom) otherwise I would have hung up more indoors). Haven't checked the forecast for tomorrow yet.
