#AtoZChallenge – Battling the Laundry Pile

Are we halfway through the #AtoZChallenge already? Wow! Time is flying once again. Today I allocate the letter L to laundry. My reason for this is because it takes up so much of my time these days. My washing machine never stops, or at least that’s how it feels. My bedroom often resembles a Chinese laundry, and on dry days my washing line in the back garden is full.

Where does all this laundry come from? Mainly my children, and also my own clothes tend to get smeared with what I like to term ‘baby residue.’ Not a day goes by without me being covered in milk, or crushed biscuit, or something a little less appealing that leaks from baby’s nose… I really appreciate my automatic washing machine.


We just returned from a week away, leaving my husband at home to go out to work. Since we stayed with my mother-in-law I was able to wash clothes and nappies every other day, so I wasn’t expecting to return home to an overflowing laundry basket. I think I just washed a whole week’s worth of my husband’s boxer shorts, because he never quite got round to putting a load on to wash when he got home from work at night.

So there I am. My mission this week is to catch up with the laundry created by a family of four, by which time I will be preparing to wash bedding and towels… it never ends! Have a great week everyone!

  1. So funny you wrote about this today–I discovered this morning I’m WAY behind on my laundry, so my washer and dryer have been going all day. FYI, did you know your dryer uses more electricity than any appliance in your house?

    • It’s not just me then! Oh yes, my husband is a Chartered waste manager so he knows it all (at least in this aspect!) We don’t have a dryer and our washing machine is energy-efficient. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I hate doing the laundry, and I’m having to do extra because the pollen’s so bad in Washington, DC. Allergy season is upon us, and the pollen gets into everything.

  3. Oh my gosh its the same way around my house. But there’s only two people. I think perhaps that while we are away from the house, the dog and cat play dress up. Yes that’s why there is so much dirty cloths.
