People my age are forever being told we should invest in the property market on all those TV programmes like 'spanish loft conversions property ladder auction' or whatever they are called. Well that's a little out of my league at the moment but I have decided to invest in the laundry market instead. Me and my Indian housemate have gone halves on a lovely clothes drier. The intention is for me to 'buy him out' when he goes back to Bombay in the summer. It's just too much to handle in one day, the responsibility of having my first foot on and laundry ladder and dry clothes too!
