Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Getting through all the laundry seems to be a battle I never quite win. It doesn't help that I have a faulty washing machine that can take hours to get through a "short"(!) cycle and no tumble drier (combined with English weather).

It also doesn't help if I take my eye off Little Cherub while hanging out washing. Especially when I have forgotten to check the seat of her tricycle for puddles (English weather, remember). Yes, she sat in it. And yes, there was a puddle. A large one. That meant that by the time I had finished hanging out one load, I had half-filled the machine with wet toddler clothes, not to mention a soggy Beanie Baby I found sitting in her Little Tikes car.
