I was in the exact same boat as you!
I was 18 when i left for OZ,lived with my parents my whole life and put it this way, i could't even tell the difference between the washing machine and the tumble dryer. It made the whole thing even more better and more challenging.

1 year later i came back a domestic goddess. I moved out of home to a city where i knew NO-ONE (from Hereford to Cardiff), and i can now knock up anything food-wise, im actually really experimental in the kitchen, i love cooking now. I had to move back home After my Africa trip cus i fel ill, but i dont let my mum anywhere near my washing, i do it myself, And im a cleaning freak. My mum is loving me being at home at the moment.

So i wouldnt worry about it you'll learn to do it because you will have to!

Alternatively.......... you could fly me out there and i could do it al for you????
please??? haha

thanks for the advise, its more of a case of im not allowed to at home, maybe its fear on my dads part ill flood the house... if all else fails ill fly you out haha. ive never been away from home for more than a week, and then i let my washing build up until i got sure ill get the hang of it, i heard in clothes there are these label type things that tell you what to do....ill start do i wash..."made in china" ill work it out ha ha..

Advise or someone who is "willing" to show me how its done a few times will be welcome
