Hello and welcome to the home of Word of the Week. A nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. The idea of the linky is to reflect back on your past week and share it with us. It’s great if you can sum it up in a word or phrase, hence giving us your Word of the Week. My word this week is ‘washing machine’ and you can read more about that below.
I’m not totally strict on using just a word or phrase. But please try to stick to the theme of summing up your week.There are not too many rules with this linky, just remember to read at least another couple of posts in the link up after adding your link. I will read and comment on all posts and tweet them out for you. I also have a Pinterest board devoted to Word of the Week and I will add posts to Mix Please add the badge below to your post so that others may find us and join in.

MY WORD OF THE WEEK – Washing Machine
First of all, back to last Friday. It was a lovely day so I put a load in the washing machine in the hopes of getting it out on my new washing line. But the machine broke and while attempting to fix it Graham had an accident. He managed to cut his hand and sever a tendon. I won’t talk about the blood. He went to hospital and was patched up and had to go back on Saturday for minor surgery. He was lucky, a little more and he would have lost the use of his thumb!
So, I decided to get rid of the washing machine (Which was now full of blood…sorry, I forgot, I’m not talking about the blood) and bought a new one. Delivery day, Monday.
So, Monday I managed to get some washing done in my new machine. Oh, I love it so much. It plays lots of little tunes, and when it’s done it gives you an almost full rendition of Schubert’s ‘Die Forelle’ (The Trout.) I looked on Youtube for Samsung Die Forelle and it seems to be very popular with people posting videos of themselves playing along with their instruments. You can find a violin, double bass, classical guitar, electric guitar and drums. There is even a heavy metal mix! Yes, people play along to their washing machines. I haven’t found someone singing yet though, maybe I’ll brush up on my German and give it a go (Only Joking!)
This isn’t my video (and my new washing machine is charcoal not white, but it’s so cute)
Disclosure: Other things have happened this week (We got new garden furniture just before the rain came, and I got to see my brother at a social distance outside in my garden) but getting a new washing machine is pretty exciting. (Even if it did mean Graham nearly losing his thumb!)
Now it’s over to you, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
