Sentimental Over the Laundry

If there's one thing Nelson and I have in common, it's that we both have the tendency to be attached to certain things that connote pleasant and irreplaceable memories. So when the very first washing machine we ever bought as husband and wife began showing signs of ageing a few weeks ago and almost stopped working, Nelson got creative beyond imagination and did all he could to revive it.

Alas, on a  Sunday, Ms. Sharp, who spent 6 lovely years with us, finally conked out and is now in machinery heaven.

Rest in peace, Ms. Sharp...

Well, all good things come to an end. It's a fact of life. And because we direly needed a new one, we spent the rest of the afternoon scouting for a reliable laundry helper and ended up choosing a sturdy 6.0 kg capacity washer in powder blue.

Welcome to the family, Mr. Pana!

We look forward to an even longer and prolific fabric washing affair with this one.
