Do you remember (those of you who are old enough) when we had white cloth diapers, and occasionally you would see a line of laundry hanging with pale blue diapers, or pale yellow, or pink? That was when we accidentally put something coloured in the washing machine to boil with the cotton things. Well, I thought all of that was a thing of the past. These days, husband and I are alone, no children around because difficult child is in Australia, four months already, hurrah! So you would think all of that would be behind me. Well, no! First of all, I must explain that my husband is a very conservative guy. He will not wear tight underwear, and will only wear white underwear. White cotton singlets and white cotton underpants, boxers. Today I was so pleased, I thought I had finished with the laundry. I did a warm wash, and then a boil wash with cotton things -- towels, underwear, socks, etc. And -- yes, you guessed, I put in a deep plum coloured towel by mistake -- well, it wasn't exactly a mistake. It had been washed so many times with the warm wash that I thought the colour wouldn't run. Big mistake. Everything came out a very deep pink. I called my husband to see, and I started to laugh and I couldn't stop. I laughed and laughed and laughed, very loud. I don't know what the neighbours must have thought! And I am still giggling. Just thought I'd share that with my "family." Love, Esther PS. Have to go tomorrow morning and buy him new underwear! I can cope with mine being deep pink!
