Five Minute Friday: Laundry

It’s time for Five Minute Friday… five minutes of unedited, non stop writing on this week’s given theme ‘Laundry’

I’ve checked a few times and I can confirm there are only 2 people living in this apartment. I like to make sure of this every so often, because the amount of laundry I do suggests that there are at least 7 of us.

I have also looked for the secret tunnel leading from our apartment to numerous others.
Someone HAS to be adding to the washing basket in this place. Surely two people cannot get through so many items of clothing. And towels! What the heck is going on with all the towels?


One thing I do know is that if I don’t keep on top of it, it gets out of hand. If I get lazy and miss a day or two, it’s curtains. Well actually it’s towels and t-shirts… lots of them.

I used to find an overflowing laundry basket quite overwhelming. I always found it quite depressing. It was more than just the frustration of trying to find a clean pair of socks. It reminded me how unorganised i was and what a rubbish housewife I am.

Becoming a writer has only made that worse… I mean the pile of washing is worse. There is another difference too… and that is that these days I don’t care;
as long as I have a clean pair of socks 🙂

  1. Hi! I am stopping by from FMF. Don’t beat yourself up over laundry and being a good housewife. Laundry is one of those things that never seems to end or let us be caught up with. I look forward to other postings! Patti

    1. Thank you Patti. It’s never ending alright! My poor mother wasn’t great at the ol’ laundry and there were 8 kids. How come I’m no better with just me n’ him? 😀

  2.! I love your gift of being able to write something worthwhile and witty at the same time. So, Auntie Amo, you’ve left me no choice but to follow your blog so I can keep reading more. Glad I found you today. Visit me too when you get a minute away from the laundry? Blessings!

    1. Yes, would you believe I have it here! And is it possible you have one of my pink leg warmers? I haven’t been able to do my aerobics since I lost it and you know how committed I am to my fitness regimen…. D:

    Searching and digging through the baskets for socks and boxers…it’s what my boys do every morning. They look there before they look in their dresser. Sad, right?
