That's really great! I'm hoping we don't have to spend and arm and a leg for appliances in the new house.

We got a significant discount; but appliances here ARE an arm and a leg.

Nice start on your garden. DH planted a few items for us last weekend. I can't wait for it to start producing.

O.M.G. It's a little more than the cost of fixing the existing machine; but not enough for DH and I to ask where we sign on the dotted line.

Even better....they will come tomorrow, deliver and install plus remove the old machine. Free.of.charge.

Nice score!!!

My washing machine is going to need replacing soon and I'm dreading it.

I scored some good car rental rates for DL ($108) and the Big Island ($137) for May.

A friend sent me a link. It could be that I guess. Knowing me I've picked up a punnet of round ones by mistake.

Our current dishwasher is 15 years old. A well loved member of my kitchen and well used and abused.
We realised there were a couple of things wrong with it when it wouldn't start up about a month ago. And as I have a philosophy of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it or replace it", we decided to get the Service guy out.

The call out was $$$ and there were a few things wrong with it. Fixing it would have cost $$$$.

So, we went looking. Turns out to replace it with a brand new model would have meant spending twice the cost of fixing it. And we would have fixed it......

IF......

....if I hadn't remembered that that particular manufacturer warehouse was not 7 km away from us. So, I coerced DH to go visit the warehouse today.

They had a showroom and when they heard what we told them about our current machine (and we really wanted to buy a replacement model in their brand rather than getting a different brand), they offered us a new machine at cost. It's 45% off the retail price.

O.M.G. It's a little more than the cost of fixing the existing machine; but not enough for DH and I to ask where we sign on the dotted line.

Even better....they will come tomorrow, deliver and install plus remove the old machine. Free.of.charge.

That's so great! I miss our dishwasher that we put in our last house. I can't wait until we have the money to renovate this one. I'm putting in a double Fisher and Paykel dish drawer next time.

A lovely windy day here today but still warm. I'm looking for cooler weather so I can try out a new jacket I bought. Maybe I can take it to a supermarket and stand in their cold room for a while

Before you lock it in, take your biggest stock pot with you and see if you can fit it into the double dish drawer. The double drawers are a great concept but the common complaint I hear about them is that they might not be deep enough for some pots.

It's cooling down here and I'm enjoying the weather at the moment.

BTW - Congrats on 1K!

1K? My post count? Woohoo! It doesn't show on the app do that's cool to know

We had the single dish drawer and I think it took everything but I tended to hand wash my La Creusset (sp?) stuff, but I'll keep that in mind for next time - which will be a few years away.

I'm so glad it's Friday night. This Old Fogie sure needs to catch up sleep this weekend.

Me too (says she who is still online at 10.30pm )

But, I've got a protest rally/march on tomorrow afternoon and I had to bribe DS with a trip to the beach afterwards to get him to agree to go with me - and tell him that he can hide under his hat in case the media was there so he couldn't get spotted on tv by his friends so no sleeping in for me tomorrow.
