I realise that this may sound really peculiar, especially to any new readers who are not conversant with my unpredictable family, or anyone who is accidentally passing through, but I honestly don't think that all the laundry in the wash actually belongs to the regular inhabitants of this house...
For starters, the amount of laundry I have been working through since late last week is of truly epic proportions, even for the girls, and secondly, I don't recognise some of it at all! We have had a few visitors lately, friends of the girls, and Middlest did bring back a veritable Everest of washing last week from her room at school, but even those points don't explain it.
Do you think its possible for someone to be breaking in whilst I'm at work and dumping their clothes and linen in our laundry basket? I've heard of laundry thieves who rob things off clothes lines, but have you ever come across someone who deposits their laundry in someone else's wash basket? Sort of like a 'laundy cuckoo' I suppose?
Me neither...so just who do these jeans and tee-shirts belong to?
Its a mystery! (but a clean one!)
