Then my life changed and I became a step-mother and then a mother and things were very different. With 6 of us in the house the never ending laundry meant that I invested in a couple of different laundry baskets to cope. My original bog standard laundry basket often ended up performing other tasks instead of being used for carrying laundry in:
Collecting stray items to return them
A carriage for Barbies
A comfortable seat
A cage for dinosaurs
What alternative missions has your laundry basket been used for?
