How apt for today!
Boring old laundry day and it was my turn to sit with the tumbling as the dryer did its stuff.
It’s always hit and miss as to who is in the launderette as sometimes they can be a miserable lot and you’re lucky to get a grunt in response to a cheery good morning.
There were four people there this morning, one lady sitting by herself watching the smalls go round and three others who were chatting about languages, home life and properties.
I loaded up the dryer, and gate crashed the conversation as one guy was talking about a place where my in-laws used to live, and I can remember MIL forever going on about her wonderful house and how she wished they’d never moved.
They were an affable bunch and we ended up chatting about my home town, Wales, dogs, registry office weddings and how I hadn’t been allowed to take my French O level (even if I’d wanted to) as I spoke it with a Dorset accent!
Twenty minutes simply flew by!
