The morning was also spent with Anais and Roman coming and going in between the showers. This afternoon was much brighter so they have been out again for most of the day playing with their friends.
This afternoon as it was nice I thought I would try to wash the double duvet covers in the washing machine. The biggest thing I have washed in there before today was bath towels (one at a time) and double sheets.
We have a portable twin tub washing machine bought from Towsure in May 2012. Towsure don't sell it anymore but it is the same as this one. Anyone who goes away a lot would find one useful if they have the space for it, we keep ours in the awning. It is invaluable for doing tea towels, undies, clothes, freshening towels and today I can confirm it also washes double duvet covers too! It is worth it just for the spin drying feature. Lets hope we have nice weather now to finish drying them as they have been blowing lovely in the wind this afternoon.
