"I really like washing machines" i wrote and a friend posted the clip below in response.
My mother in law brought up 4 kids with no washing machine. I was thinking about that today as I did a load of washing. I've got a cold, and when you're not feeling well doing small things take a lot of effort, so I'm especially grateful for access to a washing machine this week! But even when I'm well, I can't imagine hand washing all my clothes.
