We need clothes for working during the hot days, and another change of 'smarter' clothing in the evening for work.
Add this to a young child who is constantly filthy, and a teenager who likes to change her clothes every 5 minutes..........and I assure you that I have literally tons of washing!!
I just cannot be bothered to do it if the weather looks dodgy............I'd rather wait until a sunny day, and do it all at once!! Having said that, on average I do a load per day, and the weather is good enough to dry it......if it gets 'left' for a couple of days I can do up to 4 loads in a day.
Don't even get me started on the ironing!!!
