We finally have our washing machine. I can’t believe it, after two years of talking about it and researching what is the best one for us , plus getting the best price, we actually have it. I know it seems like such a boring thing but it is something we have desperately needed seeing we are on tank water.
We live in a big dry country, of course sometimes you wouldn’t know it but we do. Don’t forget the recent droughts and they were severe, towns running out of water, cities on high water restrictions and don’t forget the plight of the farmers, who are in my opinion, up there in the top five most important people in the country (probably at number one on the list).
We don’t think about water enough, especially if we live in towns and cities, as long as the water comes out of the tap that is all that matters. We don’t have to watch the dams and tanks getting lower and lower and wishing those rain clouds to form, just turn on a tap.
I know I sound like a broken record but it is really important, can you imagine turning on the tap and no water coming out. That happens to us when the power goes out as we have a water pump to pump water into the pipes and keep the pressure up. Not being about to even wash your hands or get a glass of water is a bit of a “oh my” moment.
I have realised that it is going to take me a little while to cross “washing machine” of my list, it is just that it has been on there for so long it is a bit hard to stop thinking about it. It is a relief to have finally bought it, we got the one I wanted and at a good price to and now at least this year if we have a very dry winter I know that we will be doing our utmost to save water and make it last as long as possible.
