Now I have traumatized myself

Having asked for advice about cookers. I went and bought one today,and you know how I like spending money!

Thinking that my fridge freezer was also on it's last legs and that Comet's misfortune might as well be my bit of good luck I also bought a Samsung American fridge freezer.

Now I am in shock at having spent the money.

You know that in the long run it will be beneficial as you have saved money. The shock will pass I'm sure :-D

Ahhhh Sharon,,you need a big glass of Brandy for the shock and your feet up and have a rest to get over the shock.

Forget the money I am sure you will have saved loads in the long run. :-0
