i don't do much housework when it's very hot. i took friends to the airport yesterday morning (the traffic was dreadful) and had to empty out the car to fit the luggage in. to be fair, i do have the stroller and baby seat in there, and it's not a huge car. so the hundreds of shopping bags, a huge bag of donations for the op shop, all of the grandson's stuff, half of my wardrobe, a few pair of shoes???, a fold up chair i bought and have never used and just general junk is in the laundry waiting to be sorted and disposed of. i'm doing some washing which is long overdue as i haven't washed for over a week, probably two. the only trouble is my motivation is lacking atm so it's a struggle. at least i got some sleep last night because i wore earplugs. nice soft ones. they are necessary because a neighbour has acquired a rooster which wakes me up most mornings way too early.
