lesley crewe

This ALWAYS happens. The only time there is a washer/dryer crisis, it involves your BEST clothes. It also involves a spouse who doesn’t listen.

“DO NOT put my black sweater in the washing machine. I’m going to do it later by hand.” I said this three times. Three times! So what does he do? He puts my black sweater in the washing machine with a load of dark crappy clothes that have dirt on them. Not only that…..he puts it on super-duper cycle….the one where the machine beats the shit out of your stuff.

He brings the wash to the cottage. On top of the laundry basket is my black sweater.

“Did you put this in the washing machine?”


“Did you put this in the dryer?”


“You COMPLETE BONEHEAD!”  My favourite sweater is now pilly, shrunken and destroyed!!

“What’s the matter?” He looks offended. “I thought I was doing you a favour. Next time wash your own clothes!”

“That’s what I wanted to do but you and your bonehead got to it first!” I pick up my favourite sweater and weep into the fabric.

“Get another one,” he says.

This is when I turn on him. “Do you know how difficult it is to get a lightweight v-neck sweater with 3/4 sleeves??”

“The manufacturer made one sweater, is that what you’re telling me?”

“YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! The only thing I can do now is go shopping for a completely new sweater.”

“So go.”

“That is not the point, mister!”

Yes, it is. My female brain kicks in. Go shopping, spend money and blame him.

I like it.

    Heya, i am a blogger just like you, and was wondering if you by chance tried those addthis.
    com like it buttons and if they will be any good.
    I noticed they load quite a ton of code, so i’m not sure if its well worth adding them, due the massive raise of KB of the overall filesize. Have you ever tried it? I am very interested to hear what you think about that? I would highly appreciate if you could sent me a message to franciscorace@zoho.com if you have any knowledge with those add-ons. Thx .. btw, luv your site ever since!

    Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an
    established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks

  5. Wow! This blog looks just like my old one!
    It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!

  6. Hello your internet site url: http://lesleycrewe.wordpress.
    com/2012/09/10/brain-washed/ appears to be redirecting to a completely different internet site when I click the homepage link.
    You may want to have this checked.

  7. Greetings! I was interested to know if setting up a blog site such your own:
    https://lesleycrewe.wordpress.com/2012/09/10/brain-washed/ is tough to do for unskilled people?
    I have been hoping to set up my own website for a while now
    but have been turned off mainly because I’ve always assumed it required tons of work. What do you think? Thank you

  8. Whats up! I am about to begin my own website and was wondering
    if you know where the best place to buy a website url is? I’m not even sure if that’s what its known as?
    (I’m new to this) I’m referring to “https://lesleycrewe.wordpress.com/2012/09/10/brain-washed/”.
    How do I go about obtaining one of these for the website I’m making? Thanks

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  10. Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about
    creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks

    That’s a bit Offtopic, but i assumed you could possibly give me an advice. On the subject of registering and hosting a domain name, I have no idea what I must do. A. Must I register and host at the same place? Or B. Should I register my domain name with one company and host it with another? I would want to do A, but therein lies my dilemma. I want to register my domain name with NameCheap, since I like their fees. On the other hand, I’d rather not host my site with them.
    What would be your solution?

    I run a baking blog where I share my tasty recipes and secrets that I know coming from my many years of creating meals.
    I try actually hard to enhance my blog not less than 3 times weekly.
    I have had the blog for around ninety days, which I assume is a pretty good
    amount of time. But, my blog doesn’t get lots of visitors this is annoying. When I look for my posts on Msn, it is certainly challenging for me to uncover them. I found this site on the first page of Aol while i looked for Brain-washed | lesley crewe, for this reason i believe you must be a specialist, care to share some information with me?

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
    I could get a captcha tool for my comment form?
    Seems I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

  14. Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look
    when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using
    WIFI, just 4G .. Anyhow, excellent site!

  15. Hey! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website
    with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking
    and will be tweeting this to my followers!
    Fantastic blog and excellent design.
