More of the same I am afraid. A little trip around Longford and a visit to the shop. This time the local Bottlo to purchase the weekend supply of IPA.
How are you all going in this time of restrictions? We are knocking over home type tasks that have been wanting for some time. Cleaned up the back bedroom/junk room/ironing room this week. Then I washed my down sleeping bag. Worked out it is 36 years old – bought when we first moved to Tasmania. It has had busy times in it’s life but quite a lot of down time too. But a first wash after 36 years – that’s appalling gear maintenance. I washed it in the bath then realised to rinse it therein would be a time-consuming hassle. So I pulled the agitator out of the washing machine and taught myself how to do a couple of rinse / spin cycles. That seemed to clean it up OK. Then, how to dry? Well the answer was to stick it in the dryer on a setting of “delicates”. The end result is a nicely fluffed sleeping bag with only a slight reminiscence of Darwin market’s smelly anti-bug cream.
Next week we move on to the visitors bedroom. It has a lot of cupboards into which has been put a lot of stuff over the past 10 years. That should keep us occupied.
Before then though :
