What really annoys me is the daft 'residents committees' that say youre not allowed to dry your clothes on balconies or in gardens. I think this is totally absurd - especially as in the UK there are only a few days a year when the weather would allow that anyway!! Thankfully our flat has a brilliant airing cupboard containing the hot water boiler which is big enough for a clothes horse. We also have a curtain pole accrossthe top of the cupboard for hanging jeans and shirts from - its out of the way and is dry ina couple of days! Perfect!
