By my estimation I have four more washes at the laundrette before we have a washing machine installed. Hang out the bunting!
The kitchen is all paid for and the installation is scheduled so what could possibly go wrong… bahahahah!
Between service washes, dry cleaning and self service, we have spent much more than the cost of the washing machine and, given the joy of lumping large bags down the road on Sunday mornings when things are quiet, I have to say, I won’t miss it.
I have appreciated the time spent watching the clothes tumble around in the dirty brown water as I spend a few minutes writing or thinking. It’s quite conducive to mediation and not a bad way to spend half an hour.
Perhaps I shall watch the washing in our new kitchen but somehow I think not as there will be better things to do!
