You are never on your own-there's always someone watching but not interacting! Weird.

Did you know that English TVs donĀ“t work in NZ ? you will have no sound !
That's not true. We have a Grundig which even tuned itself in! It is not new. It must be 8 years old by now and works fine (touch wood). it also did the same when we lived in Australia.

I like my top loader too. It cleans much better than the ones I used back in UK but its harsh on some clothes so you just have to be aware of that. I prefer it.

nayyyyy.... no I havnt tried actually.... only horsey things to go in there are saddle clothes and my synthetic bridle (in a pillowcase). I just think it washes things better than the front loader used to... and with a 2 year old who gets into everything (and I mean everything.... yesterday it was a tin of brown paint!!)... its important that its a good washer.

Its a F and P... dont know the model but I'm quite happy with it. I know other people who dont like their top loaders though... most complaints being that they are just too harsh and damage things.
