This is a very boring post today because all I'm doing is singing the praises of my new washing machine and Currys.
After spending 3 hours messing around with our old one on Friday evening we decided a new one would have to be bought. The fact it was stood in the middle of the kitchen with the top off because the only way to open the door was for Mark to stick his hand inside and release the catch manually, sort of sealed the deal.
The remit was basic. I definitely didn't want a washer/dryer this time but I did want one with a short wash cycle and I wanted it as cheap as possible because I hate spending money on things like this.
After a little bit of research - not too much I might add - we were still trying to salvage some of our Friday night - Currys came up trumps.
The added bonus was they offered free next day delivery and would also take the old one away for £15. So, we ordered it at 11am yesterday and it was at the house for 8.15am this morning. You can't grumble at that service can you.
And what did we choose. Well, I'm not loyal to brands or makes and as long as it washes my clothes I'm happy. It's a Logik and I love it - as much as anybody can love a washing machine that is. Plus it was in the sale and had £110 discounted.
It has a 40C wash that's done and dusted in precisely 26 minutes and if I want an extra spin that takes just 14 minutes. It also has a countdown clock which I think is brilliant. Since our last purchase around 6/7 years ago this might be pretty standard but it's new to me and I'm mightily impressed.
I've happily played with my new toy today and worked my way through 3 loads. All clean, all dry and all folded up in the basket waiting to be ironed. The cycles are that quick that we even took advantage of Thomas being at a party and went to our local for Sunday lunch.
I am one happy housewife :) Warning: Extremely boring picture of new washing machine coming up!
