    Today I decided enough was enough, we were going to tackle the tip that is currently Ana bedroom.

    I went up there armed with a roll of black bags, a pitch fork and a grumpy pre-teen.

    Half way through finishing I stripped Ana's bed and dumped the sheets out on the landing ready to take down to the washing machine. Now, because I was expecting a call from Social Services I brought up our portable home phone and placed it on the banister on the landing. Ana picked it up and asked if I wanted her to take it downstairs.

    No, leave it there. I said.

    So, we finish Ana's bedroom THREE HOURS later and I grab the bedsheets and put them on to wash.

    The phone rings, can't find it. The phone keeps ringing. It sounds like its in the kitchen but I cannot find it. I ask Ana where the phone was and she says upstairs. No sign of it, so I forget about it.

    Empty the washing machine to put the sheets on the line and what comes out with them? The chuffing phone!

    Now its not working

    The whole time it was wooshing round in the washing machine it was able to ring, now nothing.

    Gosh & what's worse some companies will not replace due to water damage. If the plastic thingy has gone red it will be void, as they recommend you don't take them into the bathroom even........... hope I'm wrong.

    Sorry to laugh but.....
    At least the bedroom is tidy. As for the phone you may find it starts to work again once it's fully dried out.

    Oh dear.

    I think you can have your calls diverted to your mobile (if you have one).

    I have another home phone, so people can still contact me. But I likes having a portable one as I could walk about the house doing stuff as my mother waffled at me. I may have to actually listen to her the next time she calls.

    See, I KNEW housework was bad!

    Sahunk, it was *goes to check* Surf small and might with essential oils. So my phone should smell lovely.
