Okay, so what started out to be a straight forward day has turned into a war zone in my kitchen. I woke this morning thinking ‘Hey, we’re in for another warm spring day, I’ll wash my nets while finish editing my short story. BUT no! while working on my computer, I heard a strange noise from downstairs and the power went off.
Even Willow sat up and gave me a puzzled cat stare. In the kitchen, I found the washing machine throwing up and bubbles everywhere. After checking that the lights were working, I found the circuit-breaker had throw its switch.
Willow decided not to stick around to help out and disappeared out the back door as soon as I opened it. Okay, so I’m on my own here.
Staring into the machine, I wondered how was I going to get all that water out without adding to the mess. It’s amazing when you switch on a washing machine and walk away you don’t think about the amount of water you use until you need to get it out quickly.
Once I switched the circuit-breaker back on I realised that there wasn’t anything wrong with my machine apart from too
many bubbles. I had added stuff to my wash which whitened my nets, this was too much for the machine. Turning the switch to spin solved the problem. I was able to drain the washing machine, get the nets out and rinse them through and peg them out. I ran the another wash through without adding any soap. Thank goodness, my machine works perfectly.
My kitchen is now clean, wet mat hanging up to dry. This afternoon, I shall clean the windows before rehanging them. All I need now is a warm day to dry everything.
Hopefully now, I can get back to my writing. 🙂
Have a great day,
