new cooker

the new cooker has arrived. it has a ceramic top, double oven, with grill in the top oven, and have a fan in the bottom one. no timer though. and it is narrower. brand is miele milano e50. i have googled miele, it seems to be a pricey brand. this one costs £250 which i could not find online at all. simon bought it from argos. i forgot how long my old oven lasted, simon said it was here when he first came to the flat when we first met. that was 2000. so that oven has lasted me about 15yrs, which is not too bad a time. i have lived here for 25yrs and so far this is my third cooker.

and it seems simon has got the buying bug. he tells me he tried to hoover the kitchen and said the two hoovers i got did not work. well, one is good for hoovering, the other is good for hose vacuuming… but he would not know that and so he thinks they dont work. so he says he went and ordered a new one. !! 

ah well, i suppose it is nice to have new stuff that works fresh instead of second hand. simon does not believe in recycling stuff. he is typical of a lot of people really. they all like new stuff… new is king. ah well, we are now doing our part to keep the modern economy running haha. we are becoming consumers. does married life make people more consumers? i wonder? it certainly seems to have affected him. 

well, it is a fact that if u are on your own you can live a more simple life. at least that seems to be so in my case. now that we are a couple, i just hope simon will settle down and stop buying new stuff.

but generally my life is beautiful and serene. 

i dont even know how to pronounce that brand name.

    Miele is a good brand. Especially washer, no lint or fluff!

    i cannot find this model anywhere online. it is a very pricey brand… usually £1000. thank goodness he did not buy at that price. £250 is a good price. so far i have not cooked on it. been using my induction hob for cooking the turkey curry. turned out very nice. hope simon dont find fault with the washing machine and buy a new one!
