Day 1627 - When the washing machine breaks


It's incredible the impact it makes when home machinery breaks.  Like the dishwasher, or hairdryer, or car, or hotwater system ... or washing machine.

Our washer has been struggling for a while.  It hasn't been spinning very well which means that after some washes we've had to wring the clothes out by hand.  Shock, horror! Really? I have to work?

Instead of getting the repair man we got into the habit of setting it for a second or third spin.  Well now it's completely buggered. Of course. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out it would eventually die completely.

We now have an enormous pile of laundry and kids going to school in dirty uniforms.  Luckily I had a clean shirt for Darby on Tuesday for school photo day. Today, however, he's wearing a dirt flecked one.  I could hand wash ... but really ... this is me you're talking to.  I am no Betty Homemaker.  Besides, he'll just go into the playground at lunch time and get all boy-like and muddy it up again.  So what's the point?

Washing machine repair man comes tomorrow.  Some time between 8.30am and 12.30pm. Gotta love having to leave open that entire window.  Sigh.

Yep, #FirstWorldProblems.
