28. My Clothesline
There is something so pleasing about a line of clean clothes blowing in the wind.
It is such a simple thing, but it makes my life so much easier and I love the smell of clothes dried in the sun. Today may be the last time I use the line before Spring comes around.
I run a load of laundry almost daily. With no dryer, all items have to air dry and that can take ages in a semi-damp terraced house. We have limited square footage and the clothes airer takes up quite a bit of space. The more I can hang outside, the better.
Of course, there is also the occasional scramble to get the clothes off the line when the inevitable rain shower moves in unexpectedly. I should know better in London, but I still try to steal every ray of sun, even if it’s weakened by the cloud cover.
Sometimes it’s the simple things.
