Midnight Laundry


Yesterday was cruel. I had to stay late for my laundry.

I segregated the coloured from the white clothes I have and washed the coloured ones first. I took me over an hour of waiting for the first batch to finish. I had to hang them for drying as we obviously don't have a dryer. It was getting 1AM at that time.

After that, it was time for the next batch the white clothes. I had to wait for another hour for it to finish. It was 2AM and while waiting for everything to finish, I was surfing the net and at the same time reading some blogs. It's a fun thing reading peoples' blogs and knowing the person who are not even part of any history. It's kind of awesome knowing and learning from their sojourns.

I woke up at around 6AM and then I realized that I left my laundry in the unit's washing machine. It was cruel. I didn't noticed that I slept with my laptop on and was sitting in my bed and with myself pushed back on the wall in one position which gave me a back ache. I had to rise from my bed and walk very sluggishly to the washing machine. I had to hang them as well and it was harsh because I feel that I was half asleep while doing it. I had my alarm set to 7AM because of the Gemalto Orientation Seminar. It took me 10-15 minutes hanging them. I had to hurry to my bed and slept again.

I woke up around 7:15AM and still very sleepy.

Reason for not being able to wash my clothes early because, there was a very small space to hang them. Even if there was nobody using the washing machine, I can 't hang them to dry, so there you go, I had to wait until some of my housemates have dried their clothes. There are some space available outside but I don't want to risk drying them there because we are in the 20th floor and it might be blown by the gust.

I can imagine what an ordeal it must have been! As it is doing laundry is not a fun job and if it keeps you from more important things then hats off to the effort!
Take care .

Oh thanks but it's just part of my being independent so it's also a learning experience :)

OMG, now I want blueberry cheesecake and I want a piece bad. Actually, that photo of it looks so darned good I might just take a bite out of the pic itself to see if it helps stop these intense cravings I am now having, lol. Oh, yummy! Before heading out to the bakery, though, I will first need to find me some shoes; "perhaps I'll bump into you at Zara, xgenesis007, and you can help me pick out the perfect pair," ha ha.

Great blog, thanx for sharing, I really enjoyed my visit and will surely be back for more.

All the best! :-)
