Our Laundry Room

Our laundry was partway through being stripped of wallpaper when the earthquakes hit.  Like everything else it's waiting for Fletchers/EQC to do their thing before I can finish it off.  
The wall where everything lives.  We have the 8kg Bosch washer, the 6kg Smeg condensor dryer (I love this beast), the microwave with my dye stuff above it in the box.  Above the washer is paper towels, some chiengora in the plastic bag (that's dog fur), the shoe care kit, vinegar and washing powder.   Left is the sink, with the cat carry cages in front seeing as we no longer have the garage to store them in.

The cat bowls, they're messy eaters; the brown thing in the corner isn't food or a mouse, it's the wooden pull off the blind

Our well worn kitchen stool, and the bucket of homegrown spuds.   Behind is the hot water cupboard.

The medicine/dyeing/cleaning cupboard.  This is one of the next things to be cleaned out.  There's preserves up there that are about 10 years old; more than time they went.

The windowsill where I shouldn't keep the wool wash, dishwashing liquid etc.   Hopefully some of this can go in the cupboard once it's cleaned out.

In knitting news I've less than an inch to go on the back of the vest, then onto the final front.   Hopefully I'll get it finished in the next couple of days.

Also have to make a new cover for George's guitar; the material is on the line drying so it won't shrink when it inevitably needs washing.

It must be such a pain not having a garage :( Hope it gets built quickly. You do keep a lot of stuff in your laundry as I do, I can't imagine now having one can you??

Thanks for sharing!
Ps that's why I put the cat dishes on a tray, cause they are such messy eaters.

My washer & dryer's in my bathroom I'm a no laundry lady, hence no post from me this week! See you next week at MPAY's.

I have no idea how you manage without a garage! You do well fitting everything in the laundry.

Hope it is not too long before EQC fix you all up

We're lucky, a storage unit came free and we were next on the wait list so a lot is there; quite a bit is still in our deck area as well. Not ideal, but needs must...

Apparently it's going to be a while, the chap we've been dealing with for the emergency works hoped it had got to the Fletchers stage so he could get the lot done soon (garages are their particular nightmare apparently), but it's not got past the assessing and approval stage yet.

Sorry but had a chuckle when I looked through your photos - because your laundry reminds me of my mums!!! She has overflowing cupboards and more than likely has 10 yr old preserves in it too. I also hope things with the EQC hurries up for you. I can't imagine not having a garage to dump my things into.
