Today.. 8 years 1 month 2 weeks and 5 days since my first child was born I got to end of the wash basket, and not just one basket but ALL FOUR OF THEM!!!
It actually has a bottom, after all the years of thinking it was in fact bottomless I have discovered it has a very fine bottom indeed. I have my Mam to thank for helping me get through most of it during the kids midterm but I also owe it to the fact that since we moved house I am now in possession of a fully functional, easy to get to washing line!
Today is probably right up there in the top 5 best days of my life, let's ignore the fact that once himself gets home there will be more washing added and just bask in the glory that is my empty wash basket..
So for anyone who thinks the baskets will never empty, have hope, it will happen one day.. Probably not soon if you have small babies BUT someday!!!
