Welcome to my ramblings on Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow xx
Tuesday, 28 June 2011
Drama and tears descended on the house when .... the washing machine stopped working ... and I was left with no machine for 24 hours ! It was if the world had stopped, time stood still, as I stood dumbstruck in the middle of the kitchen struggling with the concept of life with no washing machine.
But then it made me think - how on earth did our Mums cope. My own Mum did not get a washing machine or a tumble dryer until we had all left home ..... so how did she manage ? I definitely do not remember ducking under lines of washing hanging throughout the house, weaving through dryers laden with clothes and linen. The radiators in the house did not sack under the weight of socks and t-shirts - so how did she do it.
I have come to the conclusion that it is the miracle of Mums - those wonderful ladies, who we never truly appreciate until we become Mums ourselves and then look back and think - how we never noticed all the work she did for us - we just took for granted our clean clothes, the home-baked cakes, the days out and her endless time just for us xxx
