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

Onto my 4th now. The first 2 loads are dry and waiting to be put away.
Thinking of doing bath mats next

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

Also have our doona, pillows, mattresses, underlays, etc, out in the sun for some UV and airing...

3rd load is about to finish!

#22 IShallWearMidnight

Posted 08 January 2013 - 01:14 PM

same as always, 1 load. I put the nappies on at night, then put the clothes on top, then long wash, and hang

#23 Tall Poppy

Posted 08 January 2013 - 02:43 PM

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.

#24 HRH Countrymel

Posted 08 January 2013 - 02:46 PM

Damnit.. the smoke blew away!

Just about to hang out #1.

Only 2.

All the bedding plus the doona. All dry in an hour, gotta love that.
