Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I thought it was about time to buy a tumble drier, since the winters here are so cold and so humid. It's always a pain to wait for the laundry to dry, and I want to avoid the chance of letting humidity build in the walls. It is quite an old house after all.

I chose a condenser one, since I do not have access to a window from the place where it will be installed, and I went for a Zanussi after reading some very good reviews on the internet. I hope it'll bring on a change for the better.

This Betsey Johnson necklace, perfect for the holidays!



I love her designs.

I also went to the Build-a-Bear store to buy a present for an "Angel Tree" child...my dad bought me my Christmas present while we were there, a Hello Kitty doll and outfit. Had fun watching the stuffing process!

I bought Sennheiser headphones for the Missus' iPhone, because the crap headphones that Apple sells were literally crumbling to pieces. Man, I -so- dislike Apple products.

I'm sure it will. Just be aware that when clothes first come out of a condenser drier, they'll still be a fraction damp to the touch and need airing for a few minutes or so to dry out fully, esp. if you set the drier setting to anything short of "super-fluffy" or whatever the extreme dry setting is called on your machine. It's just how the technology works.




Bought all my Christmas presents for colleagues yesterday so I can hand them out as and when I see them over the next couple of weeks.
