If you have been following along with my family blog, The Oliver’s Madhouse you will know that I have just spent the last month recuperating after major abdominal reconstructive surgery.
As part of my recuperation my husband has been left looking after the house, the kids and even me.
This week he is due back to work and as part of the weekend we have got so many household jobs completed although the washing is not one of them.
We have an ok washing machine, however it’s beginning to drive me nuts, it’s very quickest wash is 30 minutes long not the normal 20 minutes that some machines have on them. Not to mention our ancient tumble drier, it has a calendar not a timer.
The drier is about 9 years old now and I loved the fact it was a condenser dryer meaning no extractor pipe needed but it beyond ineffective and its left my kitchen and house damp … having to resort once again turning up the heating and drying clothes on the radiators in every single room.
I guess I have never really looked at white goods as an investment but I am beginning to think that a purchase or two of something that will save me time and sanity not to mention heating costs might just be the way to go.
As part of my job I get lots of press releases and one recently had me somewhat intrigued.
The new washer and dryer from AEG has some great sounding features and has left me with white goods envy:
So just to clarify with their new machines … that school PE t-shirt that appears at breakfast on Monday morning and needed for first lesson at school in an hours time … with these it’s a doddle … 20mins to wash and dry and out the door on time. I love it.
Am I alone in thinking a white goods investment is the way forward?
