I have a laundry!

I organised a plumber about 3 months ago. Got all the stuff, and then waited. And waited. And waited.
For those weeks, I have been using a washing machine that needs to be filled with a garden hose, twice each cycle. A washing machine that needed to be rebalanced at least three times each spin cycle. A washing machine that only rotated on every 2nd rotation.....And to get to that machine I had to go up and down about a kajillion stairs.
I said last night to Mick that I loved that machine because it mean that I didn't have to go down to the river and beat my washing on rocks. It was at least a step up from that...
And now look!
Its upstairs, I can put a load on and leave it until its done.
I even put a load through the dryer last night instead of hanging it on the line, just to truly appreciate the luxuriousness (?!?!? new word???) of the laundry.
Best gift my husband has ever bought me. Bar none!
