    You joke Anne, but I’m sure everyone else will back me up in requesting your vocal rendition to complete the washing machine musical ensemble…I look forward to hearing it next week 😛 I hope Graham is recovering well, that sounds like a really nasty injury. If he’s open to a good laugh though you definitely missed an opportunity for a joke; to give the new washing machine the thumbs up… #wotw

    Ouch, poor Graham! That sounds like it was nasty – I’m glad that he won’t lose the use of his thumb though and hope that it heals soon. I love the idea of a washing machine that plays little tunes to you and people playing along to it. The video made me smile. Makes my washing machine seem very boring in comparison. Hope you have a good weekend. Thanks for hosting #WotW

      We are currently at the stage where we are gathering in the kitchen for the end of the washing cycle. I’m sure the novelty will wear off though 🙂 Yes, I’m glad that Graham still has the use of his thumb, it comes in very handy with driving. x

      There is something really exciting about getting new kitchen appliances from toasters to fridges and everything in between. I don’t know why, but I know a lot of people get excited 🙂

    I am torn between thinking your new washing machine is really really cool and thanking my lucky stars mine doesn’t do that because Sir is obsessed with washing machines, and if ours played classical music he’d never leave it alone! LOL! Hope your husband is recovering 🙂

      We have to wait until the cycle is finished before we hear it, but it plays some cute jingles while setting the program too. I’m just waiting for Graham to get back from his hospital appointment and hoping all is well. x

    Haha (for the tune-playing machine, not for poor Graham!) … but speaking of washing machines, our one packed up, and we had to wait to gte a new one. Delighted to have it in and whirring away! My word of the week is lockdown, which I am really fearing for, as my post explains, Anne! #WotW

      I’ve read your post Enda and I share your fears…I’ll wait until tomorrow now to share your post though. It’s been kind of exciting getting a new washing machine, especially one that plays Schubert. 🙂

      Graham is now in a splint rather than plaster which is good news. We just hope he gets the use of his thumb back as it’s not working properly just yet. x

    Thanks for introducing me to Word of the Week. I have been thinking about my grandmother a lot lately. Her last washing machine was a wringer model out in the garage. She would do a load, wring the clothes, empty the sudsy water and then do a rinse load. The water ran out with a hose directly to the flower gardens outside the garage since there was no sewer plumbing in the old building. She dried the clothes on the line and I remember the cloth pouch she had hanging nearby to grab clothes pins as needed. She did have one “new fangled” item for ironing, a mangle to iron sheets. I’m sure it was called that because you pushed the sheets through the hot rollers with your fingers.

      I remember my nan’s mangle…I think everyone of her grandkids had their kids mangled at some point…but it wasn’t heated. We had a twin tub which you had to fill up with a hose pipe from the kitchen tap. We are so lucky these days, I could just imagine my nan with a singing washing machine. 🙂

    I read your article and found it informative and very helpful. I want to add more about washing machine. It is likewise critical to apply simply the proper quantity of detergent at the same time as washing your laundry. Too a lot detergent can cause better put on and tear of clothes, at the same time as too little can cause unclean clothes. Keep writing informative and beneficial content. Thanks again for providing us a great information.

    These are a few awesome tips! My favorite two strategies are to keep the gasket clean and to take off the entryways open so that the water can dry out. Much appreciated for sharing!
