Even as I write my new washing-machine is busy washing away.
After much research Husband decided the German makes were best for reliability (shame the same can't be said for their cars!) so we invested in a bottom of the range Miele and here it is. Pretty as a picture.
It looks as though it has lots of buttons but it's very simple to use and I only use the basic settings so I am a very happy and soon-to-be-clean bunnykins.
Unlike Harvey who was not happy when the washing-machine was brought into the kitchen by Husband with scant regard for dog's personal space.
Harvey has mastered the art of 'Don't you feel sorry for me, having such a dog's life?'
In case you're not convinced!
