Today's challenge...

Ugh. Laundry.

At the moment I seem to be able to get the laundry washed and dried no problem. I get some of it folded, but then I don't get it away. So the house is full of piles of clean unfolded laundry, and baskets of folded laundry waiting to be put away. I HATE sorting though baskets of clean laundry looking for something to put on, but yet I find myself here more often than I would like to.

I think part of the issue is that the time I have to do the folding and the putting-away is when Chubs is asleep (either for the night or a nap) which therefore means I don't want to go into whichever bedroom she's in (hers or ours) to put clothes or linen away. I also think that the I'm-too-exhausted-to-get-up-off-this-couch-right-now-so-I'll-just-sit-here-for-five-minutes-oh-no-it's-now-an-hour-later-and-Chubs-has-woken-up situation is a factor, too.

What is your laundry rate limiting step? How do you get past it (or not)?


  1. Urgh! I have a few stumbling blocks... firstly taking the clothes off the line...finding the perfect balance between not too hot that I'll get sunburnt and not so late that it has started to collect dew.

    If I don't fold it as I take it off the line then it perishes in the basket for another few days but if it gets folded it waits on the dining room table until we set the table for dinner when it hastily gets shoved back into the basket...nicely folded until the next day when we go digging through to find what we need.


    1. I got everything folded and Chubs' clothes away. One lot just hung out and nappies in the machine. I just need to put my clothes away. I probably should do that now since Chubs is actually asleep in HER cot in HER bedroom which rarely happens. You know, instead of late night blogging... :)

      Hmmm, nudist colony? Maybe you could organise the portraits? :)
