Daffodil  by beryl

Daffodil

Love my little daffs !

Just call me " Calamity Jane "!! - my saga goes on . After been pleased and exited in having purchased a new washing machine I preceded to clear out the broom cupboard to the side of the washing machine in preparation for the new one and discovered that after all my washing machine was not leaking but the leak was in the joint where the machine pipe was attached to the water supply !! Annoyed and frustrated that I had not checked this I went on the phone to cancel the order - but then I had to go back to the store to be refunded ! Argh , aargh so annoyed at my own stupidity ! So now I have just booked my plumber to see to the leak ! -- and the pile of washing gets larger and larger !
I hope I haven't bored you - but I had to get it out of my system !!!!

I hope today will be better as I wait for my hairdresser to come in to trim my hair I always feel better when I have had my hair done !
Beryl, keep calm and carry on!!

@quietpurplehaze - Ha ha - thanks Hazel ! these things come to try us ,don't they !!

I just hate it when that happens! I am glad though that they refunded your money without that crazy “re-stocking fee” so many places charge. I always laughed at mother, no matter how bad she felt, even if she had been sick in bed, she went to her hairdresser appointment. She always said “Lou Ann, the first thing people see when they look at you is your hair”. 😊

Uh Oh. At least you don't have to fork out for a new washing machine now and the plumber will be a much cheaper expense.

Oh Beryl how annoying is that but at least you will know which washing machine to buy next time. Hope you are having a better day today

The daffodils are beautiful. It's good that you didn't have to buy a new washing machine. It will only mean a delay in the laundry.

I get the frustration. I am so not a fix-it kind of person. No clue what's wrong most of the time, and machines of any sort (other than my camera, and sometimes even then) are well outside my comfort zone.

I can imagine your frustration, Beryl.
But anyway you saved a lot of money; you could buy a lovely present for yourself...

@gijsje What a lovely idea Bep !! - you've cheered me up no end !! ha ah !
January 9th, 2019  
Beautiful shot. I can certainly understand your frustration. Sounds like something that would happen to me. LOL I'm glad you got it rectified, though.

Lovely shot. Is spring on its way?

Lovely image. It could have been worse you could have ended up with two washing machines. Thank goodness you decided to clear out the broom cupboard. :)

Lovely spring-like image
January 9th, 2019  
Oh dear! Sounds more than a bit frustrating, but good you caught the error before delivery!
January 9th, 2019  
Oh that is an Aaaaaah moment, hope it’s all sorted out now and your pile a lot smaller! Nice daffs too.
January 9th, 2019  
A lovely image Beryl. It's good that your washing machine was actually broken. I'm sure you'll get through the washing pile in no time once the leak is fixed :)
January 9th, 2019  
A lovely image , but good your machine ok and pipes can be repaired
January 9th, 2019  
just delightful!
January 9th, 2019  
A lovely composition and capture. Fav!! 😀

Oh Beryl, I love this story....just the sort of thing could happen to anyone! If there’s water about round a washing machine of course it comes from the machine, it’s a definite as far as I’m concerned! Never mind, think of the money you saved although the plumber might be expensive too! I think I would rather have a new machine than pay someone to repair a water pipe! New machines are expensive so you must be saving some money thankfully! A hair cut is a real moral booster!
January 9th, 2019  
I feel your frustration Beryl. Everything will eventually get sorted and you’ll get on top of your laundry. Just hang in there. Thinking of you 😊.

I see you have some lovely daffodils to cheer you up. I do feel for you though. With our new kitchen the only appliance which didn't need replacing was the washing machine. Then in the middle of the walls being knocked down the washer failed so we had to get a new one in the end anyway.

Very pretty Fav

Hope the plumber doesn't charge as much as a new washing machine! This is lovely with this slim vase!
January 9th, 2019  
the Daffs are lovely beryl . at least you are only paying for a leak fix :)
January 9th, 2019  
Beautiful capture and editing. Fav.
January 9th, 2019  
A great story, though you probably don’t think so Beryl! The silver lining - all’s well that ends well!
January 9th, 2019  
Beautiful shot. Hope your washing machine problem is solved soon. Those household issues can really send me over the edge.

Pretty daffodil!

Lovely! We do not get daffodils in abundance until April. Oh dear...you are having a frustrating start to the year as well. I hope they make "braided metal mesh or fiberglass" hoses to attach to your washing machine there? Several years ago our rubber hose burst on the hot water of our washer machine! It flooded that level with 4" of hot water, peeled the paint off the walls and finish off the cabinets. Not fun at all. We now have the braided hoses on our toilets, under the sink plumbing and washing machine...anything with water.

Lovely color! It's annoying the way you found out about the pipe but you saved yourself some money! Great for you!
January 10th, 2019  
Fav. Beautiful presentation.
January 10th, 2019
