However, there has been a surprising development. In today's post came news of the January sales - prominent in which was an ultra cheap tumble drier (our favourite kind) on sale at Leclerc. The fact that a tumble drier appears in a sale less than 12 hours after our previous one explodes can only mean one of two things. One, fate has forgiven me and an abundance of good fortune is filling the horizon. Or, two, Leclerc sabotaged our old drier.
Knowing my luck, I know which one I believe.
So other householders beware: retailers are taking these January sales more seriously than usual. Guard your appliances. You never know when one might explode.
