1000 Flowers for the Planet - #60 Wash in Cold Water
Washing clothes has become so much easier with modern technology. We no longer need to boil water and use a mangle, a very physical, exhausting process that took our ancestors a whole day to attend to. Now we can chuck our clothes into a machine, push a few buttons and walk away while the machine does the work for us. How wonderful!
Let’s put a bit of thought into what we do, though. Try washing with cold water. The laundry detergents are designed to wash modern materials in cold water, so we can still get good results.
Plastic rules my life. Crazy Australian invention of plastic money. I can put it through the wash! Unlike my Euros!

2. what would you name your future kids?
Freyja! That’s the only name I’ve stuck with so far. I’ve thought of naming a son Patrick, as it’s dad’s middle name and I’m NOT adding another John to this family. I used to be adamant about the name Charlotte.
15. personality description
Uuuuuh. Hmm. I’ve always called myself shy, but it’s been attributed to the Finnish side of me - being comfortable being quiet. These days I like to think I’m a lot more confident and daring than I used to be! I’m passionate, that’s for sure. Fiercely loyal, loving and compassionate.
38. favourite comedian(s)
Dylan Moran! My dad because he is truly one hilarious man. Billy Connolly. And a bunch of dudes I don’t know the name of!
45. how you found out about your idol
David Attenborough has been my idol since I was a teensy child. I suppose I discovered him through his documentaries when they played on TV. I always wanted to be the next David Attenborough. I also hold Michael J. Fox in high esteem, and I discovered him through the Back to the Future films as I’ve been watching them my entire life! Nikki Sixx was my idol for a long time, because he saved my life through his first book, which is how I discovered him.
