Sewing for life

Lazy Laundry

1 Comment

This poem made me laugh and yes, it does describe my housework regime! I found it in Inside the Victorian Home (A portrait of Domestic Life in Victorian England) by Judith Flanders.

They that wash on Monday

Have all the week to dry.

They that wash on Tuesday

Are not so much awry.

They that wash on Wednesday

Are not so much to blame.

They that wash on Thursday

Wash for very shame.

They that wash on Friday

Wash in sorry need.

They that wash on Saturday

Are lazy sluts indeed.
