Would you like my electricity bill?

Fred puts everything in the tumble drier. Much is mullered!

I did get him to try pegging a tea towel on the line but even I relented after that.

I've got a basket full of grotty clothes Himself wore in the garden. Very stinky :-(

I would have washed them today, but it has rained all day....... no way am I putting grotty things that may have chemicals on them in the dryer.

With the run of bad luck we've had, the dryer is likely to catch fire & explode.

Would you like some excitement Sharron?

Can you imagine how I would be if I wasn't?!


GinN Report 25 Jan 2014 11:43

Just chill and stay relaxed, Sharron - that's the way! :-D :-D ;-)


Sharron Report 25 Jan 2014 10:46

I don't think so.

It doesn't sound as loud as that.

His mate will be here soon, he can deal with it all.


GinN Report 25 Jan 2014 10:21

He hasn't put the crockery in there again, has he, Sharron? :-0 :-D ;-)


Sharron Report 25 Jan 2014 10:00

Don't know what is going on down there this morning. The washing machine is going so he must have something he has fond to wash and there is a lot of banging and rattling down there.

Don't think I really want to go down and see what he is up to.

On there way :-D :-D :-D


Sharron Report 24 Jan 2014 09:37

He is hyper-active. I have run out of dirty washing.

Please send your sweaty socks, skiddy dungers, unspeakable underpinnings.

An old man's welfare depends on them.
