    do all your washing!!

    i made a huge mistake of not getting completly on top of my washing..when super ted was born i had a basket full.. and alex has been doing 1 load of washing and drying a day.. and ive just looked in the kitchen.. and the baskets still full.. and now the upstairs baskets full.. humfff so im taking over the washing.. tbh.. he has been amazing.. but he is crap at cleaning..the house always looks untidy after he has been let loose.. i havent stepped in the kitchen for a few hrs.. im dreading it coz i know i will have to get the bleach out and go round cleaning everywhere..:(

    i also really need to wash my bedding..gah! i forgot how much hard work house work is with a newborn!

    Sounds like good advice! - unfortunately we dont have a washing machine at the moment - should be working by the weekend but both me and DH are down to our last pair of pants and socks - :roll:

    Since we got the dryer I've been on top of it :) Before that I was kinda on top of it, but we cos we live in a flat we don't actually have any outside drying space... or much of it...

    Dunno if its because I have tweenie living in the house, that can't actually put an item of clothing on more than once and kids here don't have school uniforms, that if I was to let the washing go for more than three days... I'd soon be swimming in oceans of Tia sized clothes and have a whingy child crying because she can't find any clean clothes... :roll:

    Aww don't even mention washing and ironing as I have a mountain of both and can't get motivated to do it. I hate ironing and would rather clean toilets than do it. Luckily hubby usually does most of it on a weekend while he is watching the footie :D

    I am addicted to washing at the moment since I have been off work and even putting it away- used to have huge piles of clean washing sitting when I was at work that never got round to making it to the drawers.

    Can't imagine how much we are going to have to do after the birth though :shock:

    i HATE washing, i'm so sick of it, my washing basket is maybe empty once a month if i'm lucky. I do at least 2 loads a day, god know whats gonna happen when baby arrives, part the reason i'm using disposables as i'd never keep on top of it.

    Most of it is chucked in wardrobes on hangers at mo and i'll ironing it as i need it or i will get round to taking the iron upstairs one day and doing one wardrobe at a time to get on top of it, if i leave it in a pile to iron after washing it just seems to build and build and i never get round to it or putting it away until everyone runs outta clothes.

    I must admit though i have been frantically trying to keep on top of it these last few days, washer and dryer is going constantly all morning to night, but it just seems to appear from nowhere..KIDS :shock:

    i've put it all away today and think i got one load left to do which i think i will go and do now to get it out the way :D :dance:
