Never ending laundry basket!!


Is it just me or does anyone else have a never fucking ending laundry/washing basket!!?



Seriously how many outfits does a family of four go through!!? This is the exact reason I salute those women that do the school run in their pyjama bottoms, just your pj's to wash? They are looked down on for been lazy but hey they sound like geniuses to me!!



I literally have such a sad life that when my washing basket is empty I do a little victory dance!! Even if it is just for 3 hours until the children and hubby get ready for bed and then it's full again for the next day. Well, I say the washing basket is full but it's not, it's all over the bloody floor as they can't seem to see the massive big washing bag that stands in the corner of the goddam room!!

Then of course, once it's washed it needs drying and ironing!! Ironing is the source of all fucking evil!! No wonder little mo decided to bump poor old Trevor around the head with one in EastEnders years ago!!  I'm surprised "death by iron" isn't a choice on death certificates. My body cringes when I see the amount of ironing that comes from doing the washing!! Every single day It gets washed, dried and then sits in a basket staring the shit out of me, taunting me, that at some point I'm going to have to stand and iron the fucker!!


As a stay at home mum, I have lots of jobs but washing and ironing are the worst!

I'm going to let you into a little secret here.....Sometimes I will inspect and sometimes even smell a certain item of clothing out of the basket and if it seems ok and doesn't have the "a la sweat" scent ill just hang it back up in the wardrobe and their none the wiser! !! SUCKKERRSS!!!!

I have a routine that I wash and dry them the same day but then I won't have the mental strength to look at the same clothes again whilst ironing the fuckers, so I leave the ironing until the day after!

Same shit, different day! Washing, drying, ironing......WASHING, DRYING, IRONING!

Do you have a house chore that you hate?
Do any of you love the ironing?

Thanks for reading.

  1. I DO NOT IRON :) I allow myself one day off from washing each week but some days I do 2-3 loads. @It is unbelievable how fast the washing basket fills up1 #coolmumclub

  2. I do not iron either!! Such a waste of time! I do The Boy's uniform, and anything that needs it, but not day to day!

    I probably wash every day. Sometimes, I have a day off...but then need to do 3 the next day...but I've only had 1 off?!

  3. I do not iron as well! Except for my husband's shirts sometimes and only if he has an important meeting the next day. So, stop ironing! Really, such a waste of your time and nerves;) #coolmumclub

  6. Argh Laundry is my nemesis! Especially in the winter when it's all jumpers, layers and jeans. Roll on summer and £2.99 H&M dresses...
    Gotta tell you this - nothing is being ironed in our house either! Not even the uniform, my hubbys work shirts, NADA. Well, maybe if I was going to a wedding or had a linen outfit (but it would basically just never get worn). Join our gang!
    Thanks for making me LOL via #coolmumclub

  8. Family of 7 here! I have one day off a week from laundry, and the eldest have assigned days for their washing. Otherwise it's mostly school clothes, and these are the only things I iron.

  10. Laundry sucks & it seems to pile up quicker than I can finish it. I hate when socks come up missing. Like WTF.

  11. I hate laundry here, too! With a family of 7, it is truly never ending. None of my kids are old enough to reach the top of the washing machine, so they can't even help yet. Though they do help with the folding and putting away. I only iron the boys' shirts once a week. The socks sit in a pile on the sofa until I get around to them. Right now, I'm 9 months pregnant (ugh, still pregnant!), so they can just get their own clothes off the couch from where they get dumped after they come out of the dryer! We're a homeschooling family, so wrinkles just aren't that big of a deal.

  12. I hate cleaning the bathrooms the most. And even when my husband does it I can see limescale lurking behind. But the washing is very tedious. We have loads of the stuff. My husband spills food on his clothes so easily - argh! I also do a small whoop of joy when the basket is clear. Until my husband comes home and piles it full. Know you are not alone! #CoolMumClub

    1. I clean the bathroom just before I'm having a bath so I get a nice treat at the end of it!

  13. I don't iron - that saves a lot of time! In fact even before children my husband and I have never ironed our clothes. As long as they are hung up soon after coming out of the tumble dryer you can't tell much difference :) #ThatFridayLinky

  14. I have this same conversation all the time. I can only assume that as clothes go into the basket they multiply! I am also sad enough to do a dance when the basket is empty for a few hours, in fact I've been know to put a status on facebook celebrating it, it is an achievement! I don't iron husbands stuff, I know, bad wifey but he tells me not to and I am not going to argue!

  15. I rarely iron!!! Boys school shirts and hubby's work shirts. I dry carefully and fold and straight into the draws. Five of us I would be attached to that bloody thing πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #thatfridaylinky

  20. The only thing I iron are Pops uniforms! That is it! The OH does his work shirts and trousers. Nothing else gets ironed, I just don't see the point! As for the wash basket, I do a little dance too when it's empty πŸ˜‚ X

  24. Oh my gosh its literally never ending isn't it! I refuse to do the ironing (best decision EVER!) Hubs knows if he needs anything ironing he does it himself. As for the little ones they're so little they don't need stuff ironed and my stuff is mum run type staff ;-) I love that you sometimes put stuff back in the wardrobe without washing it, ha! Fab post, thanks for sharing it on #MarvMondays. Emily

  25. Eurgh!!! I HATE laundry. I'd honesty rather scrub a toilet. Seriously. Sorting clothes and putting them into the washing machine isn't so bad. Its everything that has to be done afterwards. Putting some things in the dryer, hanging the others up... when they're dry i usually just shove them in a basket until the OH gets fed up of looking at them and puts them away. Haha. I never iron anything! #TriumphantTales

  29. Popping over from #TriumphantTales to say Hi.
    My dog creates most of the washing in our house, but there's only hubby and i at home now, one coloured wash, one white (inc towels) and bedding washed weekly, that's it, but i did used to have 5 kids at home so i feel your pain

  30. I actually love doing the washing, more so as it means I can orgnaise clothes into piles. But I hate ironing!!! I feel your pain here!
    Thank you for linking up to #TriumphantTales. I hope to see you back next week

  31. Oh lovely - life is too short for ironing!! I use the anti crease function on the washing machine and hope for the best! Usually so long as I get it out of the washer drier quick enough, the washing is absolutely fine. If something needs ironing - hubby does it! Hey he knew what he was marrying in to! This girl doesn't 'do' ironing!! πŸ˜†Thank you for linking up to #TriumphantTales :)
