Now how many of you girls (or is that being sexist??) have lost an earring, and kept the remaining one for years on end hoping the pair would magically turn up?
Well a funny thing happened the other day – our washing machine stopped and displayed an error message and would not restart no matter what buttons we pressed or how we turned the dial (wait – I haven’t got the funny part yet!)
This was the washing machine we had shipped across from Australia to France and the instruction book was long gone. So while I searched the net to find information and instructions on how to fix the problem, (don’t you love how you can find absolutely anything on the internet?) Mr Fixit jumped straight into it and was already on his hands and knees draining the machine.
Then, by opening the drain access, we could remove whatever was obstructing the works… and lo and behold, along with a tile spacer (the final straw I guess), was a gold earring that I had “lost” literally years ago – in Australia!
Yay! I really hope I really did keep the pair to it… I’ll just have to check my collection of lonely earrings when we get back.
