I saved enough pennies to help my mother and father buy the washing machine . One day me and my mother were sitting down at the table when my father walked in with a big smile on his face. Below him was a brand new washing machine. I had never seen anything like it! I was gobbsmacked. The washing machine was a dull brown colour .Since electricity came I am much happier doing my chores and I no longer have to do my homework under the faint candle. Now i have a bright illuminous lamp in my house.
