Wishy washy, all dry

We were lucky in that the previous home owners decided to leave us the washing machine in the kitchen. It saved us about two hundred pounds, which as things turned out, has been a bit of a life saver in the money stakes.
Hubby has been sanding down the dining table today.
It’s a bit marked and scratched, but that’s actually part of the attraction for something of this age and quality. It is SOLID and has come up a treat.
The idea was not to sand it down completely, just to take off the top layer of old varnish and redo it, thus keeping the character of the piece.

Hubby was grubby, dusty, and sweaty, so decided to strip and put everything he’d been wearing in the wash.
The machine has an economy setting which only takes 20 minutes and is perfect for  lightly soiled clothes. We have also discovered a separate setting for an extra spin of 16 minutes, which means less time out on the line.
The beep informed me the load was done, so I got my new laundry basket and started to unload the machine.
I knew the spinner was good, but not THAT good, as everything was dry and Hubby’s joggers no cleaner than when he’d put them in.
Ah. I saw the problem.
The machine had still been set on spin, so we have just spent 16 minutes waiting for dry clothes to spin, unwashed.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    hahaha Oh dear! But haven’t we all done something like that at one time or another? I washed my husband’s shirts with no soap powder once! 🙂
