Despite the fact that I’ve had some lovely presents over the years – diamonds and designer handbags spring to mind – my best present ever, received from Ashley for Christmas about 8 years ago, was my Dyson washing machine!
And before you – like all my friends did at the time – say ‘God, I’d KILL my husband if he bought me washing machine for Christmas’ – I did actually ASK him to buy it for me for Christmas. And I was thrilled with it.
I could wax lyrical for hours – and bore you rigid, no doubt – about the contra-rotating drums, the huge wash capacity which means I only have to do one whites and one coloureds wash most weeks, the pretty colours etc etc.
But I won’t.
I’m sure you’re all suitably relieved about that.
PS My iPad was a close second!
