Washing machine fixed! A lovely man talked me through how to repair it myself. It seems that there was something stuck in the pipe to the pump that we have managed to move enough that it is working again. I just need to keep checking for when it finally dislodges enough for me to be able to pull it out.
Looks can be deceiving CJ, especially when you've had several years of practising hiding things.
Weight is a strange thing CJ. I'm feeling huge today which doesn't tally with my skirt being so lose that I have to keep pulling it up. But at least weight isn't one of my hang ups and I don't tend to weigh myself so have no idea whether I am gaining or losing.
