|Washing machine, redux

new washing machine is now all plumbed in.The |
I have two wet knees, a long gouge out of my right forearm, a couple of scratches on my left wrist and a bit of a scrape on my right ring finger.
The old machine is stood in the middle of the kitchen -- shortly I will haul it to the car and thence to the recycling people. Perhaps I should do that to the dead tumbler from last April too, at least that one is a bit lighter.
Ooh shiny! I occasionally consider replacing my washing machine, it is now old enough to vote, and doubtless not very energy efficient, but still works OK.
The energy cost of replacing things generally makes it more efficient to carry on using them until they die of their own accord.
Might as well shift them both and gain a bit more space.
There's a rather nice kitchen there, just waiting to be reclaimed...
Go on blitz the kitchen! Then use the new found space to get naked and bake muffins!
Cough syrup is much fun :)
Don't the people who bring the new washing machine take the old one away? They do here.
They would have done, had I asked for the new machine to be delivered. However that would have taken three or four days, having left me with no working machine meanwhile, and I had a pile of washing which I wanted to do now ... so I collected it from the shop instead.
I could then have taken the old unit back to the shop for them to dispose of, but the local recycling centre is the same distance on an easier route, and they'd only be sending it there (indirectly) anyway.
