Dear Self,

I’ve just hand washed four woollen jumpers.

Over the summer they have slowly accumulated in the laundry. I don’t need to wear them much in the summer.

It would have been easy to wash one at a time…always having all my woollen jumpers available to wear when I need them.

But I avoid doing it.

I don’t know why. It’s not like it is hard. Just fill a bucket and wash the damn thing.

I think it is the details that get me. The water temperature has to be right…so you don’t end up shrinking them, you have to be careful not to wring them out too much because they might end up becoming felt, that’s also why you can’t spin them in the washing machine, then you are meant to dry them flat in the shade so they don’t get stretched all out of proportion…how does that even work? What does flat in the shade look like?

When I don’t know how to do something right I avoid it.

This is bigger than woollen jumpers.
