It Will All Come Out in the Wash


Mr Uhdd has finished The Three Peaks Yacht Race, the team had a really good time and are very happy with their overall place, in the top ten.


He’s not back home yet but his dirty laundry is! My brother in law BiL who has been  driving around by road supporting the event, rolled up here last night with a rucksack of the stuff. Yuk.

Mr Uhdd checked in at lunch time today, it seems they will be sailing back down in the general direction of home, via a Scottish whisky distillery and with a quick hop across to Ireland and he’ll probably be back on Monday. His laundry may be sorted, but we’ve one or two other tasks lined up for him on his return.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Cool.

    Have fun doing the laundry. :\

  2. well done to mr uhdd. respect.
    he just keeps going and going.

  3. Is he fitted with Duracell batteries?

    Well done, Mr UHDD. And good luck to you, Mrs UHDD, when it comes to the laundry …

    • Fee, it would appear he is running on rechargeable batteries. The laundry made a flying leap from the rucksack to the washing machine, if there was anything in the pockets, tough. I didn’t hang about to investigate

  4. Impressive achievement.

    I suppose there will be more laundry when he gets back. I recommend you put it in the pond with Spud, who will agitate it, whirl it around, and shake it out until it’s more or less dry.

  5. Top ten is impressive!

  6. What an amazing feat! Well, both feet, actually 😉 Congratulations Mr. UHDD, and to you Mrs. UHDD for being a good sport in dealing with what came home before him…

    I’ve just been reading about the race on the website – “The Barmouth to Fort William Three Peaks Yacht Race, the original running & yachting race, and one of the oldest extreme multi-sport endurance races in the world.”

  7. Looks and sounds like an amazing adventure!!!

  8. Sounds like a fun trip. 🙂

  9. Brilliant!! Well Done Mt Uhdd!
