There are things that have no explanation...

They have so much because someone does it for them. LOL... Don't you remember? I do how I had so many loads when my mom did the laundry. When I first moved out those loads really shrunk. LOL... xo

About laundry: When my 16 year old left for boarding school this year it reduced by laundry by at 3/4ths (even though she is only 1/4 of our family!)

The move to Madrid sounds exciting!

your busy days look very beautiful ... and I have no explanation for the laundry mystery. My youngest brings about 20 kg of his laundry with him when he comes home for holiday, that is from Cph to Malaga :)
madrid! i don't know it...
(only just a little through your accounts....) ;)

It's a mystery to me, too. But a universal mystery, it seems...
I love the list (1 kilo especially ;))

And the photos !!!

Seems like a pretty good list to me. The laundry thing is something we have to deal with i'm afraid.

Adios!

You really have captured Madrid in those photos. I like Castille in winter.

Are you looking for a school for you or for your children? We average about 10 loads a week for 5 people. I am sure with a baby on the way we will add another 4 a weeks. I just don't like putting it away.
anushka said…
i do 2 or 3 loads a day... living on an island has increased our laundry because we use so many towels. love your list by the way. respeto. : )
jane said…
hey mp- the house was painted. i actually took its picture because there is a funky coffee shop across the street and i wanted to remember where it was. (i don´t use maps;))

I love seeing Spain through your camera lens. Beautiful images. Can't answer you about the laundry. It's the same world over :)
Holli said…
The second picture where the light is shining on the building? I just love that one....

What a shame, four days in Madrid and all you eat was international food!!
jane said…
hey begoña- 2 words, "hell yes!" ;)
Victoria said…
Great photos. Love Madrid. We spent our first wedding anniversary there - a wedding gift from my sister. Love your little list too!! Have to say that I always search out a Starbucks wherever we go!

I agree with ibb. Some things just don't equate.
