Laundry tips

Living alone means having to do all household chores on your own.

Ever since B.T gave me the keys to his house some 2 years back and I'm practically living at The Studio, I've been sharing the load of household chores. I think my Mom would be pleased :)

We sweep, wash up after every session of cooking and meal, wash and hang the laundry, change the sheets etc. We have a part-time help that comes in every fortnight or so to give The Studio a thorough clean-over and ironing of clothes that need it. Now my biggest challenge is the washing. B.T complains that I have the most cumbersome type of clothes - toga tops and dresses, stretchy knit wear, all kinds of stuff that will possibly shrink or run -_- He says it's ironically all my expensive or too cheap stuff that need 'delicate care'. I try to avoid buying clothes with care labels that spell out - DRY CLEAN ONLY or HAND WASH ONLY. But I can't help it every now and then.

I found this video today on washing silk in the washing machine! Mmmm perhaps I shall experiment on a uh inexpensive 'silk type' garment that isn't my most favorite. The problem is, I don't think B.T will allow me to have just ONE item spinning in the machine.. -_- Right baby?

And another one here on washing bras. But hmm.. so far, I simply chuck them into the mesh bag and throw it into the washing machine and it comes out unspoiled.

Ooh. I found two more videos on curling your hair! Sweet!

Evening run

My new feet for the marathon :)

I love it when B.T asks me out on a run date :P

You have bad days run and good days run. It was a good day run this evening except for the first part where we tried to run a different route and landed up passing through uneven grounds, construction dust and urgh.

I felt strong on my run. We ran together - my tiny short legs pumping hard to keep up with his long strides.

Including traffic light stops and whatnots -

5.73mile run, 55:38:40, 9:42min/mile pace, steady heart rate zone

I hope these statistics will improve when I start training officially :)

Meanwhile, I'm planning to sell off my Polar HRM since I have my Garmin+HRM. More details coming soon!

P.S Thank you XXX for the lovely new feet which I found on my desk after I returned from my trip :D xoxo
