The birds are chirping, the sun is smiling in and a gentle breeze is ruffling the dark green leaves. An idyllic morning to wake up to. Oh darn! I almost forgot it’s laundry day! Time for a situation analysis – maybe I can have my cake and eat it too.
Ok, so let’s take stock.
(Rummaging in the closet)
Ha! Found some underwear. I guess the jeans I wore yesterday can last another day. But what do I do about a top? I can’t seem to find anything that is clean. Ummm… (thinking cap on – still rummaging in the closet) Oh wait, this skirt can double up as a tube top! Perfect! Laundry day tomorrow, fun day today!
Off to catch some sun….Ciao!
Had a smashing day yesterday and am ready to do my laundry today. I’m just going to have my morning coffee and get right down to it.
(30 minutes later – coffee finished, daydreaming mode broken by thoughts of laundry)
I really should do my laundry….or maybe after breakfast. I do have the whole day free so there is plenty of time.
(2 hours later – breakfast is done, binge-watching House of Cards, laundry temporarily forgotten)
(4 hours later – stomach rumbles as I emerge from the captivating drama of British politics) I’m going to grab a quick bite before I load the washing machine.
(Sometime later – 2-course lunch finished, time for laundry…finally)
I am going to make a quick call to mum and I can get on with the laundry right after. It will just take 5 minutes and then I’m free to concentrate on chores.
“Good Lord! Mum, I have to run. It’s 7 pm already and I don’t have any clothes for work tomorrow so I need to get my laundry done ASAP! Good chat though. I’ll call you later. Bye.”
Hmmm…Maybe I should shower so I can put my PJ’s into the wash as well.
(1 hour and an invigorating hot shower later)
Ok, I’m ready to do laundry now!
Oh no no no! I’m out of laundry detergent. Well, Sunday is almost over and I am way too lazy to venture out of my comfort zone now! I may as well use a couple of hours to unwind before the weekly grind starts and tackle the laundry tomorrow. I’ll figure something out.
I wish I had tackled my laundry yesterday. Well, nothing to do but get through the day. I can wear my swimsuit under those trousers I bought 4 years ago and never used. They accentuate all the wrong curves but are the only fresh bottoms I have. As for a shirt, I wonder if I can wear the one I wore 4 days ago. It should work with a generous dose of floral perfume. I will pick up some detergent on my way home.
(Evening after work)
Guess what? Ed asked me out!! So I went on a shopping spree and managed to kill 2 birds with one stone. I found the most flattering, semi-formal summer dress for dinner tomorrow and a couple of other outfits to keep me going till I finish my laundry since I didn’t have enough time to buy some detergent.
Now I can look forward to my date in peace, without thoughts of laundry swirling around my head constantly.
I have some major, life-changing news!
(Can’t stop jumping with glee)
I have found the perfect solution to my laundry woes – all thanks to Ed. The dinner was scrumptious, Ed was charming, funny and smart, but the icing on the cake was when he told me about Laundryheap!
He said that he’s been using it for months now and it’s extremely convenient. They collect dirty laundry, wash it and deliver it back, all within 24 hours! Isn’t that great!
Seems like a win-win situation to me. All I have to do is book a time-slot online and they take care of everything. It’s like magic – a few taps and hey presto, my clothes are clean!
Goodbye laundry duty, hello freedom!
Until next time…Adios!
