The day so far…

When we did some washing last night we had these crystals appear in the wash. We thought it was because we’d mixed the old and new detergent in the bottle, but no, of course there’s a better explanation – we have a toddler in the house.

Turns out, Mr A was helping with the washing and put a disposable nappy in the clothes basket, which in turn all got dumped in the machine. The nappy is a lot lighter and super clean but lacking in crystals and padding. Our clothes are washed and abundant in crystals and padding.

I rang Mr G to tell him I’d solved the mystery and managed to catch him with a plumber who in turn gave us some advice on removing the crystals from the pump. And in the background? Well lets just say there were primates watching The Jungle Book on TV. Seriously.

And this afternoon we visit the surgeon for a little local and a few cuts. And then we pack.

Honestly, you can’t make this stuff up.

Catch ya…

    LOL, too funny. We have had all sorts of things go through the wash, but never a nappy, LOL.

    Have a fabbo holiday and hope G recovers enough to still enjoy your little getaway. Have fun and catch up when you get back.
    Am 🙂

    Hope everything goes well for you Karen and that the procedure went well. Have a great trip.

    I’ve had that happen too — what did the plumber tell you? There are probably a lot of us who’d love to know ;o)

    You’re right Lisa – I should have said!!
    He said to run it through on the hottest water setting. He was concerned it might clog the pump. I did it twice and it seems fine (we wash in cold and have done several since then).
    Phew! Might have been trouble before we’d even left the house!

    Oh yes I have done this one before a couple of times. In fact it was only a couple of weeks ago for the last episode and we managed to put 2 through!!!! Thank you Little Miss 2! 😐
