August Habit #11 A Little Encouragement

Dear FlyLady,

I live in Australia and also have a Hills Hoist clothes line, you can wind it up or down and it spins in the breeze.

I have three sons and my absolute favourite job is the laundry. I only ever wash when its not raining, as soon as socks, underwear, sheets, towels are dry I fold them up outside and place in laundry basket and wheel inside, then put them straight away.

I hang all tops and shirts on coat hangers on the clothes line, when dry I hang them straight up in the wardrobe, except for any that need ironing. They remain hanging on an indoor clothes rack until ironed. Long pants are hung from the cuffs and require less ironing, I do not have and ironing basket.

My favourite is to wash the sheets and remake the bed the same day, at night you can smell the sunshine on the sheets. If raining I have a pergola which I place a clothes horse on wheels, at night I just wheel the clothes horse inside.

Hope this is helpful.
