Wonder Wash

Wanted to do some outfit posts today as have got some bangin' new clothes (and a new buying method- less stuff better quality)  but for several reasons this didn't quite come to fruition.

1. I still have no camera and forgot to ask Phee if I can borrow hers.
2. I have become quite chubby recently, and therefore less up for being photographed. I tried dieting on Tuesday but it didn't work. Dieting lasted from 7am till about 4pm by which time I was hungry, tired and pissed off. I had to eat 2 Buenos and most of a bag of Maltesers to placate the hunger rage. I have decided that dieting is for the rich, already thin, and neurotic. It is not for me.
3. I am reading a brilliant book that eats hours of the day away and I am reluctant to put it down.
4. The weather is shite and not conducive to looking lovely in dresses.

So for now here is a photo of me using our new washing machine- very exciting.
Yes my eyes are closed- obviously I have been transported by the paroxysms of joy this appliance brings me.

Its called a Wonder Wash and it is indeed wondrous, did 2 loads in no time at all. The happiness the Wonder Wash inspired in me was only slightly marred by a sneaking suspicion that my excitement was in some way letting down the sisterhood. To paraphrase a great woman 'you can tell if some sexism is going on by asking yourself this- are the boys doing it?' Would the boys be excited by a Wonder Wash? probably not. Does this make my joy at it's washing capabilities sexism? Fuck knows but to assuage these thoughts I have told myself that I will use the time I save not bending over the bath wringing out mangy tights doing something fabulous. So far fabulous has been eating the remaining Buenos from the multi-pack and writing this post...

Love to all xXx


  1. Your posts always make me giggle. :o)

  2. I know a few men who like doing laundry as much as I do and who appreciate their clothes and take care of them properly to make them last longer, and who get excited at the prospect of fresh-smelling clothes.
    So I guess that method to work out if something is sexist only works if your answer to the question isn't sexist, which defeats the point..
    I'm really intrigued by this thing though, I could do with one. I'm assuming it doesn't have a spin circle though does it?? That's the worst thing of handwashing clothes in the sink for me,all that wringing!

    1. You make a good point. I will no longer feel guilt over pleasure in the face of new appliances.

      It doesn't have a spin wash per se, but you can drain the water out and spin it really fast by hand. We have an electric spinner which is rather handy especially as leaves things almost dry.

      Glad to hear it Bette- Loved your evacuee feets! x

  3. Appliances are absolute joys all round (until they break) and never think other wise!

    also, AS IF diets!

    1. Wise words Florie on both counts :) xxx


Leave me a little bit of love.
