A Week of Positive

Things just keep getting better and better , well in my little world they do . This week we had been stalking a new washer in the Argos sale only to find the sale had ended and it had gone up £50 in a day!  So we looked on the comparison websites and found that although the prices were lower in some places once you added the "installation"  delivery and removing the old machine they all came to the same price , the point is we didnt need installation,  delivery or removal but you cant not have them . we stripped the old washer down took out the drum to use in the garden , recycled some of the parts smashed up the plastics and popped them in the bin , kept the door and we were just left with the shell for the travelling wombles to take when theyre about . How they have the cheek to charge for installation i dont know a chimp can do it , but one i emailed stated they just abandon it on your doorstop if you dont pay for installation , plus you cant just collect a washer from a shop these days ..
Anyway i told Mr Bah Humbug that enough was enough and i was off down to Terrys Auction Room to get a washer whether he liked it or not . So for the stunning total of £30 i have a washer , far from new but it works a treat and if i get a year out of it I will be well happy. I will keep my eyes peeled for a newer bigger one when im flush . I ended up staying at the auction all afternoon just for a bit of me time and as usual as the afternoon wore on  the crowd and the internet died a death , they had five flatscreen TVs from house clearances and they were going cheap so with the rest of the washer budget i bought a TV for the bedroom nobody wanted it because it was so thick with dust and weve been without one for nearly a year since one of the kids cast offs died , cant say ive missed it at all but his lordship likes TV when he cant sleep . Got it home dusted it and Mr Bah Humbug started moaning it was to big for the bedroom because its the same size as the one in the living room , he says This is weird theres an awful lot of stuff on this control and its got tons of different sockets on the back ,
 He went on the internet got the manual and then said

How does this always  happen to you ?

What

Youve gone and bought a posh make smart TV with onboard everything.  how much ?

£22 with free dust !!

He was speechless , doesnt happen often .

  5. Our son brought a £400 motor lawn mower at a car boot sale for £25. We were stunned. It was nearly new and in perfect condition but needed the right kind of oil put in. Advice from Granddad and they were away! Nothing wrong with second hand!
