Madness, efficiency or sloth?

As I was sitting on the sofa, watching Wimbledon and listening to the rain hammer on the window, I had a blinding flash of inspiration.

This would be a perfect time to wash the car.  A sponge, some soap and it would be done.  No need to cart buckets of water through the house, the rain would rinse it for me.

Waterproofs donned, sponge and car shampoo in hand, I headed out, and five minutes later, the car was clean.  Well, cleaner than it has been for a while anyway.

But from the looks of the passers by, I can only conclude that washing one’s car in the rain is not the genius move I had assumed, but instead an act of utter folly.  Maybe my OH is right, and I really am a strange creature.  All I know is that in my world, it still makes perfect sense.

    Genius. That’s the only wash my car ever gets yours was lucky to get the soap too.
    I did think I should have taken shampoo out on my run with me today!

  4. I usually don’t even bother with the sponge etc and hope the rain is powerfull enough 😉 I am THAT lazy!! (when it comes that that sort of thing!)

    I’m as lazy as Catherine, I’m afraid (car never gets washed). I want to assert, however, that I am more regular about my own personal hygiene 🙂
