Day 267..#Pillows

These past 3 weeks (this final week especially) have been the busiest I’ve had this summer.

Now, I can’t complain because I remember for the longest time, I had also been bored.. So now I have been kept busy I cannot justify complaining yet again!

Today I continued adding touches to my room, going back and forth to town, which would explain why my body is so tired.

I also decided that today I would wash my pillows before using them, seeming as they had been in storage in excess of one year.

I put two of my eight pillows in our washing machine that has a drum size of 6.5kg (yes, I have eight pillows..I only sleep on two of the eight though!), however when washing synthetics on the setting I was using, I was only allowed to load up 3 kg of items.

Now, I’m not sure if you are supposed to wash pillows in the washing machine, but I think I am sure that my pillows were part of the “do not wash these” type.

The wash took 82 minutes, and when I took it out of the washing machine the interior of the pillow had disintegrated.

Needless to say those two pillows have now been disposed of..soaking wet, and I have pre-ordered two new pillows that I will go and pick up either tomorrow or on Monday from Argos 🙂

On another note, I am slowly but surely getting through my emails!

School is about to start and I’ve been running around like a headless chicken trying to sort out books, work, scheduling and timetables and everything else.

I’m telling you this because I want to let you all know that I appreciate the comments left on some of my posts and I promise by the end of tomorrow, I would have checked and responded to the comments that have been left for me, as well as read and respond to your own posts.

Please bear with me..

  1. we are very understanding, u have to get everything prepared for another big year!!! good luck and once in a while, peek in!!! LOL

  2. Oh Apple, how I can relate to the hectic nature of your life right now! In fact, we’re washing lots of bedding today too and our washing machine has decided to play up. Thankfully things aren’t disintegrated, just soaking wet! Hmm…

    Enjoy! 🙂

    • It’s so crazy isn’t it!
      It didn’t feel like this in my first why now in final year I don’t know!
      I put my soaking wet pillows in a giant Wilkinson bag then into a bigger Argos one..this morning there was a puddle by my door..oopsies.
      I hope your washing machine is working now =)

  3. Bummer about the pillows, but probably good to try to wash them anyway. Hope school goes well!

    • Thanks Rumpy.
      I’m buying pillow protectors in addition to the pillows this time. That should reduce how much they need to be washed. Or maybe next time I’ll dry clean them instead? hmm..
      I’ll let you know how the first day of University goes..thanks for the well wishes 🙂

  4. A lovely happy post despite the destruction to two innocent pillows! Good luck with the beginning of school!

  5. thats enough raw material there to build me a nice pillow throne!
