but it's so hard to know when you have somtimes. Like, i'll use a launderette machine, which can take quite a large load, and then i'll use my mum's, which doesn't take as big a load, and the difference can be hard to judge. I will remember now that 5 man's shirts, or 2 towels, is equivalent to 1kg. But then, what about pants and panties? How many of them does it take to make 1kg

I had to stand and watch it until it got to a certain point in the cycle, where I knew it wouldn't leak. Before I knew I needed to watch it, it flooded the kichen and almost half of the front room. That was before 'visitor' moved in with me, he was living in Birmingham, and thought me very strange 'cause' while I was telling him on the phone about the flood and damage, I was laughing. It was one of those or situations, and I usually prefer to

oh towels are a thorny issue here. So much so that only _I_ am allowed to wash them.
