Washing machine reprise

When the washing machine man said it might take as long as until Monday to get the new belt for the broken washing machine we sort of expected them to be in touch to arrange a time by Monday at the latest for the refitting of a washing machine belt. I've been idly wandering the web today, and I've discovered that slim washing machines that fit into stupidly positioned areas of a bathroom are now more common than they were two years ago, and also much cheaper. They have until the end of Monday to contact me if they want to get their £115 service charge, and if it doesn't happen I'm going to throw more money at the hassle and just get the damn thing replaced. For £230 I can get a brand new machine with good reviews delivered on a next-day delivery option. I hope by Wednesday night to be able to perform the amazing feat of washing clothes at home.

Plumber's coming to fix the bath taps the same day.

I am spending money on home maintenance. I seem to be a grown-up. This would be easier if I were a richer grown-up. Ah well.
