My neighbour's got more washing out on her line - and I think I see method in the besom's clartie madness.
The washing line was empty for all of five minutes, then, lo and behold, there was more washing on it.
I now see what she's up to:
She does a load of washing, then, come rain or shine, she puts it out on her line. She leaves it there until she's done another load of washing, whether that be an hour, a day or a week later. She brings the washing in off of the line and replaces it with the lot she's just done and then starts the cycle again.
The dirty midden.
I know her little game.
I should be a private detective!
