Hanging Out!

indigo in the breeze

Did you know today is National Hanging Out Day? I always hang my washing on the line outside, unless it is raining in which case I hang it up indoors. I do not own a tumble dryer (or “money machine” as my Nan would have referred to it!) and can’t say that my life is any the worse for it. I was astonished to read that in some places, hanging washing outdoors is prohibited for “aesthetic reasons”. That’s just bonkers. I, for one, really love to see washing hanging on a line, especially when it’s yummy indigo fabrics like in my picture above. So, save yourself some money, reduce your carbon footprint and ditch the money machine :-). Go here to check out all the reasons to hang your washing on the line.

Now if only it would stop raining!
