Today was your classic 'chores' day. Or in our case, spend your afternoon sitting in the garage, keeping an eye that the washing machine doesn't flood the place.
We have a problem in that UK washing machines use hot and cold taps or pipes (don't ask me to get technical) to do a wash, whereas they only use the cold one here. It meant us moving various pipes about and putting them in places they probably shouldn't be. It also meant it leaked, a lot, whilst we did our wash(es).
Still, it allowed us to make use of the deck chairs which we sat on, watching the washing machine, whilst eating the remains of last night's Chinese. Foreign life, eh?!
