Vani has been getting me early birthday presents through the week (my birthday is today!), including very not-safe-for-work (but not like you think) curiously strong magnets!
In raw weight the biggest early birthday present came yesterday, when these four guys brought us our new refrigerator. They tried to deliver it a few weeks ago but needed to come back with more people to get it down the stairs.
It is "counter depth" and apart from looking out of place in its shinyness, it fits the space in the kitchen rather well. The old one wasn't as tall or wide as the space, but was sticking out a few inches too much. Shiny. My first ice-maker!
Our old dishwasher was 25-30 years old and we got a new swedish one too that I finally finished installing last Saturday (bye-bye strange-installation-of-the-old-one). I must be getting used to this house thing when I get slightly excited about new appliances. Only major disappointment: The curiously-strong-magnets doesn't stick to the curiously-shiny-surfaces of the fridge and dishwasher. What's up with that?
