Being back from holiday means facing an inevitable mountain of laundry.
Thank goodness for washing machines and good weather. Four people and one fortnight’s worth of laundry has meant my washing machine has been working overtime this week just to get the laundry pile back to more manageable proportions.
The fact that Jessica had a very enjoyable time was quite clear from some of her clothes – the packet of chocolate rice cakes that she discovered in a shopping bag in the back of the car en route to the hotel which then ended up decorating one of her dresses (and the bed in the hotel when she threw herself face first on it on arrival – but washing that wasn’t my problem!); the chocolate ice-cream that had a similar effect and despite my best attempts to soak the offending items as soon as possible, the stains were still apparent and quite stubborn to get rid of.
Now if the ironing fairy could just pay me a visit, that would be just perfect…
