I love spring, I do, but apart from the first flush of green that is always just wonderful, I love the chance to put a line of washing out and get that smell of sunshine on my bed clothes. I don’t have a tumble dryer in this house so at times I have been draping bed linen over my clothes horse and other times hubby has taken our bedlinen back to Warwickshire to wash and tumble dry for me.
So this Monday, I thought I’d chance it and was up and stripping our bed at just gone 7.00 a.m. and 2 1/2 hours later – I like extra rinses, it keeps the whiteness, trust me, hubby used to design commercial laundry machines, its the rinses, with extra water that keep your whites, white – I had this.
And then they were ready to air for a day on the radiators. So happy to get all that done in one day.
One winters worth of dirt, cleaned off the washing line before hanging the laundry out and it was a short winter at that.
