The very hungry washing machine

On Thursday, the washing machine started to drip.

On Friday, the repair man was asked to make the trip.

On Saturday, the man said the machine was broke.

On Sunday, the stench of the clothes pile made us choke.

On Monday, our neighbours' washing machines went into a spin.

On Tuesday, our washing machine was put in the bin!

On Wednesday, after research and reading of online buying guides and Choice websites and comparing of prices and checking for energy ratings and discussions with people and tossing up between front-loaders and top-loaders, a new washing machine was found.

And on Thursday, the replacement machine is homeward bound (free delivery too. Love love love online shopping!).

Hooray.

Yippee! I've gone right off conventional shopping, but I've never done online whitegoods. Well done. What did you end up getting - front or top? When we replaced earlier this year we went straight to energy efficient top having used front loaders for over 10 years. Haven't looked back. Just being able to lift the lid and drop in that pesky towel you overlooked is gold.

I like your little poem, very creative! I'd love a new washing machine, but ours just keeps on spinning and when it breaks hubby fixes it.

The Geege did try to fix it but was beyond help this time. You are lucky to have such a capable husband!

Love it. At least yours never took 3 hours to do a load. Might do a bit of online shopping myself...

Oh, how I wish mine would break so I could get a nice shiny new one! Maybe a sock or a diaper gets stuck somewhere funny...
