Our washing line broke recently and so we bought a new one:-
Now this part of Umbria is, shall we say, biased towards the male so hanging washing like cooking, ironing, and most household chores are a no go area for the male.
If I was spotted hanging out the washing,as I do, then I would be drummed out of the olive oil producers association and pilloried throughout Trevi.
It is interesting to note however that this company is encouraging the fairer sex to sort out the TV aerial, fence the land, keep cattle and try to enjoy camping. Change is a coming.
