I fitted the cabinets etc and wired it in. I have little interest in actually using it. A bit like the washing machine. It's scientifically proven anyway that women have smaller feet so as to stand closer to kitchen appliances. 

 

I have little interest in using the oven too. Life’s too short lol. Washing machine however is a necessary evil in this life especially in houses where showering is a challenge ;)

Im a domestic goddess. Anything you can think of, I can tip it over toast. 

 

After microwaving it.

That’s about my level of culinary expertise, and the point at which I lose interest too. I’ve generally lost interest before the microwave dings in fact.

Men don't use ovens, they get BBQs.

 

That’s why gas and electric bbqs are a feminist conspiracy to domesticate men. 

 

It’s worked on some.

I was domesticated long before I had a barbeque.

I think I’ve already answered that in this thread with the old Greek proverb “the mountains are used to the snow” ;)

She did say that sitting in one is supposed to lower blood pressure as it relaxes you. I said not when you're sitting there thinking of the leccy and water bill! :(

 

One of her reasons for buying it was "The kids loved the paddling pool...you couldn't get them out of it!"

On a water meter too! Ouch! Water can stay forever mind as long as you don’t mind sitting in rancid stuff, but leccy - gulp! :S Can’t you wire it into next door somehow? ;)

 

You could have just reinstated the paddling pool! :)

Given TIME I could have used the solar thermal panels to supplement the heating side I'm sure.

I’m surprised you bought something like that TBH. You could have rigged a plasterer’s bath up to the solar and something to bubble the water. Job done :D

I sold the old wood burner from our bungalow to a neighbour who plumbed it into an old large bath out in the garden to use as a hot tub, initially the water was very rusty but cleared after rinsing. Just need the bubbles somehow now.

Came in to SWMBO moaning the temperature wasn't going up and staying at 16degC.

 

"Erm...press the big button with the FIRE icon dear!"

See, MAN make fire, woman cook with it!

I’m impressed! It’s been there for 24 hours and she’s not yet bored of it. You do realise that the fire ? button sends the leccy meter into orbit? ;) 

 

MAN opens gob and pays for it. Literally :D

Mentioned to a lad at work we'd just bought a Lazy Spa...

 

The up shot is I'm now picking up a 6-person oval Lazy Spa c/w pump for nothing. Needs a new outer cover which is circa £150.

Bicycle pump + hosepipe + child.

 

Simples.

So that will be £250 for the original spa, plus another £150 for a part on the new one, so £400 quid.

Then a much larger bill to run it.

Bargain!

 

Who is going to be the first to mention putting a bit of washing up liquid in it Matey.

Plus my fuel to go and get it!

 

Think of the rise-and-fall-shower-scissor-lift bits I could buy with that...

My turn for some bubbles, some skin soup is an optional extra.
