Michael please gather some sticks and a spill, whilst I fill the copper. Soon steam is rising.
Water and soda has worked its magic, and the peg has twisted and turned in the dolly tub.
Now its time to turn the mangle, then work out now to drape the clothes on the clothes horse, drying the important items.

Wash day over, its time for a slice of bacon jack followed by the last of the lardy cake.
