The dirty washing is taking over the house!
On Sunday, the pile of washing was getting ready to take over the house BUT I am sticking to my guns and refusing to tackle it. Why, you may ask - well it all started a couple of weeks ago when my girl wanted an item of clothing that hadn't been washed. She considered that it had been in the washing basket too long and should have been washed already. The discussion became heated when I said that she was fully capable of using the washing machine. Silly girl replied "I have been out all week, when could I have done any washing?" As any parent would do I pointed out that perhaps she should stay in and do her washing. Her reply was to tell me to shut up. That was the moment when she waved goodbye to any possibility of me ever doing any washing for her again - so I put up with the huge washing pile. Unfortunately, her dad hates it and has now taken to doing her washing - the pile had gone and clean washing was on the line when I got home from work today! I only hope she appreciates what a good dad he is. When she saw the washing on the line she did point out that she had at least one good parent :) I am assured that this was in jest.
He has taken the week off work to decorate the new half of the lounge. Although it is a small room it will take all week because of the thorough preparation he has to do. Yes he is a perfectionist - I joke that's the reason he married me but he will say that I am the exception to the rule!
