There's mounds off washing to catch up with, even although there's only hubby and I at home! I remember when I was little, my Mum only did a washing once a week. She had a twin tub which had to be pulled out, filled with water which was then heated up. The clothes were done in batches, starting with the whites working down to my Dad's working clothes and my brother's football gear which went in last, because by this time the water wasn't quite so clean. Then it all had to be rinsed and spun and the machine emptied! Phew, no wonder she only did that once a week!
When the broken machine came out I noticed this retro wallpaper in the space under the worktop. Very "vintage" with its brown and orange design. There's probably a "new" version of this on the go! I've given it a bit of colour to jazz it up a bit.
