Our faithful old washing machine has finally bitten the dust ….. after many years of very robust and at times challenging service, it was a sad and poignant Hello Magazine type moment when I finally realised that it couldn’t be patched up yet again and that I would have to go online to find a replacement …… and Tesco came up trumps!
Who’d have thought it, one minute they are delivering our weekly comestible order, with the odd substitution …. and the next they are assisting with our requirements of a laundry nature!
Needless to say, the novelty of this new acquisition has kept Nigel occupied for many a long hour ….
….. especially as most it’s current contents have needed washing after his and Darrell’s escapades in the snow …..
and Countdown …….. where he closes his eyes and tries to guess how many minutes are left on the wash! Fortuitously, as the machine is very new, there is little, if any vibration, so Nigel’s attempts of sitting on it with a full stomach in an effort to feel his dinner go up and down when it is in rampant spin mode have been, thank goodness unsuccessful!! Sometimes I despair!
