It never rains...

Ok, it does actually, I live in Wales.  They say things come in threes... well I must be going for a multiple of then.  The huge gas and electricity bill... the car failing its MOT (but passing after a job done, costing double what we'd hoped)... it looks like the power steering pump is on its way out as well.  Last night and this morning, my kitchen floor was sodden.  We thought the washing machine had packed in - further investigation, the sink cupboard was flooded, and it's a leaking pipe in there.  Waiting for the plumber to call now.  Within 24 hours, said the lady in the Maintenance Department.  Then my Kindle decides to pack up on me - so there's my sanity gone.   Small mercies is - that it isn't the washing machine, that would have been a major disaster for a family of six!

Life seems to go in extremes for me.  Extremely amazing and extremely disasterous.  No happy-medium - which I'd settle for sometimes!  Especially when I'm skint and things are packing up around me!  Ah well, happy, positive thoughts for the rest of today.  Nothing else can go wrong... can it?

Don't answer that.  Await my answer in my next post...

    1. I get you Cindy! It took a brief turn for the worse when the plumber came as I was trying to cook a hasty tea for the other five, only to leave 2 minutes later, claiming he couldn't fix it and arranged an appointment for THURSDAY! Still, I went out with 'the ladies' - my Mum, family and her friends for a female only meal, and we had a great evening :-)

  2. Oh dear... a month has passed now. I wonder if life has improved? I certainly hope so! These things always seem to happen all at once!

    1. Yes thankfully Suzy, no major mishaps since Good Friday (yay!) :-)

      Won't hold my breath though...

  3. When it rains, it pours. Sorry, I couldn't help it. Jokes aside, I hope that the plumbers were able to fix the leak quickly, so no further damage could be done. And as Suzy said, I also hope that things are going well for you and the family. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Indeed :-) Yes, very quickly, literally 20 seconds, I didn't even have time to ask him if he wanted a coffee! That's what I call service, and no issues since. Well, not the pipe anyway >.<

      Thank you for your lovely comment :-)

I love receiving comments, so if you should stop by, just give a little wave to me and be sure to say 'Hi!' :-)

I know, I know... poetry also not my strong point...
