Yes that is true … some have their machine on the rocks in the local stream. Mine wanders around the house doing chores, vacuuming, dusting, cooking etc.

But a bit more seriously we have a room for the washing machine and drier.  Canada

Most detached houses have two floors … the main living space and bedrooms tend to be upstairs, and the washer drier combination can be found on either floor.

I might be having a blonde moment. If we are 9 hours ahead, doesn't that mean that English folk are reading our contributions after they've been made?

Funnily enough for me you guys are 8 hours behind, but tomorrow?

Not everyone has the luxury of having a choice of washing machine locations. 

Indeed, our house growing up had a utility room where the washing machine was, I've recently upgraded to a flat where the washing machine is in the kitchen from a flat where the washing machine was in the bathroom, largely because the kitchen took up half my living room.  At least I'm heading in the right direction.

Very true. 

Washing machine in the kitchen would be unheard of here. Always in bathroom or separate room, and always in a waterproof room. Which kind of makes sense, I think.

Always in bathroom

Yeah, but our kitchens are tiny.

Not really, though I would guess the median house size is slightly higher here. If you have a smallish bathroom, like a lot of smaller flats do have, you either get one of those small top-loading numbers, or use the laundry room. I seriously don’t think I’ve ever seen a washing machine in a Norwegian kitchen. Much like I’ve not seen wall-to-wall carpeting on a Norwegian floor since the early nineties :D

As a child I saw a three dimensional orb of intense glowing blue light floating in the 'utility room'.

Sounds like ET went undefeated in this game of hide and seek.

Bathroom seems pretty common. Which makes more sense really. 

Once I move out of a flat an into a house I won’t have my washing machine in the kitchen if I can help it.

Electricians hat on. 

That wouldn't be acceptable in the UK. 

Special location regulations

I'd want more than an electrician's hat on taking a shit there.

If you have a bird on it, is that allowed? My outback bathroom, a bit ago.

Jeff Lynne is talented, but he's a nose. 

Steve Winwood is talented, but he's a godbotherer.

Must be Lawrence (Felt, Denim, Go Kart Mozart) then, they've even made a film about him (Lawrence of Belgravia)  - I am joking but... He did write Blowin' in a Secular Breeze (Anti Blair Anti War Song), Mickie Made the Most (Namechecks Gary Shaw) and West Brom Blues (all of which are blocked in the UK on Youtube)

Wasn't aware of this.   Has this always been the case?
