Friday Fictioneers : 20th January

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is our hostess for the Friday Fictioneers and our PHOTO PROMPT is provided by Na’ama Yehuda.
You’re joking right?
It’ll be perfect for the daily wash.
Yeah, one sock or pair of knickers at a time. It’s ridiculous!
It says it uses one litre of water per wash, so that has to save money. I thought you’d be pleased I was making an effort to reduce the bills!
And how many washes do you think I’d have to do eh? I’d rather do the lot by hand!
Ah! They have a spinner and drier to match……….
Stop right there…………

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.

    Ha, topical one Di, a novel way to get the energy bills down, however unpractical!

  2. Nope, Not Pam says:

    Looks like the kind of thing you find in caravans – completely useless πŸ™„

  3. neilmacdon says:

    Aha. I suspect the doing it by hand was the whole aim of the exercise

  4. murisopsis says:

    Hehe!! Barbie is going to be looking for her appliances…

  5. A very pertinent tale to modern times. Mind you needing to do a 100 washes a day probably wont help with the bills, nice one, Di.

    Sock it to ‘im πŸ™‚

  7. One sock. Actually. Newborn size. πŸ˜‰

    Ha! Saving money isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

    Someone is having fun at someone’s expense. Fun and funny. πŸ™‚

    Hahaha! Back in the day, we used to have an old twin tub…it had such a tiny barrel. And they still make them, they still shudder so much with the spin, I wonder if the house foundations stay intact. I’ll have a front loader any day. Fun dialogue πŸ™‚

  11. We’ve come a long way baby. πŸ˜‰
