Yes fluffy, but the only reason why I love hot weather is that I can catch up on my laundry!

I'm on my third load now.  Sheets, winter coats, everything...and all dry within an hour or two!  

Ah, the things I get excited about nowadays!  Tounge1.gif

Lol none! Not even the promise of fast drying washing will get me out of the air conditioning!

None - it's all smokey here today.

I put one out at 8am and I am not going back out there - DH can bring it in when he gets home.

Have done two.
Contemplating getting the nappies out of the shed as I want to do a strip wash on them so I can sell some of the ones I don't want anymore.
However that means going outside, which is definitely NOT appealing Tounge1.gif

On load number 4 here biggrin.gif
And I still have to tackle the black hole of DS1's bedroom (his father is teaching him early the concept of a 'floordrobe'), DH's mystery pile and the bedlinens.

On the plus side, I'll have heaps of ironing tonight as an excuse to get out of bath time duties happy.gif

I have a load of towels on right now.

I wash clothes at night and hang out before bed.

None.  I'm rather afraid I'd have to collect it from neighbour's yards if I hung anything out today.  laughing2.gif

Besides, I washed yesterday.  I almost never wash two days in a row.

I am using the weather as a good opportunity to teach the kids how to sort laundry and use the machine.  Lots of practice today!

None, though I did some last night and hung it on clothes airers that are out on the deck now original.gif

I've been in aircon since 7am at work so I think I'm in for a shock when I get home at 3 to my non aircon house.

Never mind, kiddie pools were invented for a reason tthumbs.gif

Only one today but 2 everyday for the last few days prior to today as we were away and had no washing machine.

I am a bit strange really, I love washing and everything to do with it.  I especially love smelling the clothes when they come out and I am hanging them up atm (I even put a bit more liquid in so the clothes smell extra nice).  I think it must be a weird pregnancy thing biggrin.gif

1 load, I was going to do another but couldn't be bothered.

Most days I do a load though so, it's not like I've done more or less than I would have if it wasn't insanely hot.

Damnit.. the smoke blew away!

Just about to hang out #1.
