    I rarely win out on deals and strokes of good fortune, so tonight I am quietly celebrating being on the receiving end of a bit of good luck akin to Basil Fawlty winning £20 on the horses.

    My six year old washing machine that has served us well and was beginning to show signs of wear to the point of being on my to-do list of replacements, but so far hasn't burned the house down would appear to be one of the potential fireballs subject to a safety recall.

    A quick check, a couple of emails and a brand new replacement arrives free of cost in ten days, gets fitted and the weapon of mass destruction taken away. :D

    Want to bet the bastard burns the house down next week? :roll:

    Washing machines are full of water, it's tumble dryers you have to keep an eye on.

    Mine is a tinderbox built by the lowest bidder located where it can quietly smoulder away until it's properly taken hold of my best pair of Levi's.

    Our tumble dryer is in the garden shed. If it goes up it will be quite a show as all the assorted gas cylinders, meths, turps. a couple of 20 litre petrol cans and two compressed air diving cylinders will go up. It would sort out the fucking rats under my shed though. :]

    That’s a bastard, couple of weeks earlier and it could have been Bev’s Christmas!

    I'm still mulling over whether to tell her or say I decided it needed replacing and she owes me £150 for her half. :D

    2 results Kev, I saw on the news you managed to get rid of the 320 car tyres from your shed.
