110 diapers.......

Our Washing machine broke down yesterday, so we do have a crisis...... This morning I did the laundry together with Esther. That means than that I washed more than 110 diapers by hand!!!!! I tell you, that is not an easy job! On top of that than all the bibs, clothes, sheets and covering blankets....

Because of the Christmas holiday is half of our team free and tomorrow we have the big change over, the staff who worked this last week will be free for one week and the staff who was free for Christmas, will be joining us again. Having the washing machine breaking down, just in this time makes it all more difficult, since the laundry lady is also free. At least the sunshine helps us a lot, it dries fast and the Sun also bleaches the diapers a bit!

P.S. I just washed 30 more diapers this afternoon!!:)  ( and still by hand!)

  1. Oh Els I feel for you. I remember washing diapers on Sundays and it was hard work - and that was when there was nothing like 100 of them! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that the next week with reduced staff goes OK. Thinking of you. Love Helen xx
