Five surprising facts about Californians

1 They own tumble dryers, which they use on a daily basis. This in a state that hasn’t seen rain for three years, has sun almost every day and where people complain about the cost of utility bills. Haven’t they heard of the linen line?

2 They wash the dishes under running water, despite the 3 year drought, seeming to be more concerned about the risk of getting sick as a result of accidentally ingesting an iota of washing up liquid than about running out of water.

3 I’ve been at my coldest in Californian (and Spanish) houses. They haven’t got the hang of central heating, or of letting the sun shine in!

4 No matter how small the home there’s always room for a monster fridge (or two!) See comment above re utility bills.

5 Fruit and vegetables are no cheaper than in England despite being grown on their doorstep. Must be the drought!

Crochet, colour, braiding, macrame, jewellery - some of the things I'm currently loving and learning about, often inspired by travel. I also want to explore more about eco-friendly materials.
