Okay, just to attempt to hide the picture of myself in the previous post (oh, I am modest and shy) without actually deleting it, I’m posting a picture of the toy of the moment. It’s the new washing machine (quite obviously). I just love it. It has flashing lights and it beeps when it’s done. So I know it’s finished washing but it doesn’t have the buzzer of old machines that used to scare the crap out of me. Yes, I know, small things and all that…..
And I can’t post a picture of that without posting a picture of this – the old washing machine. It’s still sitting in the living room waiting for the son of a friend to come and buy it for a bargain, take it away, fix it, and sell it for as much as I paid for the new machine… Problem is, I don’t know this guy and his phone is always engaged so I can’t get hold of him and I want this old machine OUT of my house very soon.
Other news: I just went garage sale-ing again and bought six plants and fifteen books for ten dollars. And a straightening iron for twenty dollars (not from a garage sale). And petrol for an insane price, before it becomes more insane later this week due to oil company profiteering (don’t tell me it’s not, unless you can explain how the North Korea missile issue should affect how much I pay for petrol in regional Australia). And I forgot to buy orange juice.
