Before I had children I usually did washing when I was running out of clothes for work.
Now however the washing machine is on most days at least once.
How does one small person generate so much washing? How people go on with more than one child, I don’t know. What must twins be like?!!
My last washing machine broke when Boo was about six months old and so I opted for a washer-dryer.
People tried to put me off but we were short of space and when it’s raining outside and, at the time, we had no spare room, I opted for it so at least in a (stomach bug) emergency, I would be able to wash and dry quickly.
So the washer-dryer has lasted 15 months. I didn’t even use the dryer much.
Today it stopped mid-cycle so I called out the local washer repair man (£40 callout fee) to come tomorrow.
M husband went mad when he got in saying I should have waited to speak to him as it is cheaper to just buy a new one.
I am torn. While if it is fixable, surely £40 is cheaper than buying a new machine, that £40 can go towards the new machine if it is not fixable.
So as well as being gutted at the extra expense so close to Christmas, I now have the added decision of whether to try and fix it or just go with hubbie and buy a new one.
Quite possibly the most boring post ever but in my life, the washing machine is a big thing.
Although, at least I will be let off ironing for a while.
