Monday ... washing day!

As a child I always remember Monday as washing day.
My mum would buzz around the house and grab anything not nailed down to wash.
She had at one point an old fashioned boiler and would stand with these wooden grabbers, fishing around the tub! It was then my job to catch the washing as she rolled it through the wooden rollers to get rid of the water. I loved to grab it as it came through, and I must say it did a good job.
Today we don't tend to have a Wash day, but on Monday I always think of my mum and her red face as she worked over that tub!
