Three strikes by Murphy

September 27th, 2009 at 03:51 am

Well, it's been a disaster of a weekend. In the last 48 hours the washing machine stopped functioning (I'm guessing a blocked pump); then an element on the stove top stopped functioning ( as it is a very old stove I'm expecting to be told it's not repairable so will have to buy a new stove); finally the electric kettle stopped functioning ( I went to KMart today to buy a cheapie replacement, but all the jugs they had were fancy schmancy stainless steel and cost too much, so I'm temporarily boiling water in a pan)

All this and I'm still smiling. I have over nz$3000 in my EF fund to deal with these setbacks. Murphy - you're out!

    Lift up your stove top and check to make sure the element is plugged in correctly. We have trouble with one of our stove elements occasionally when we remove the pan to clean it.

    I am washing dishes the old fashioned way, Murphy visited my dishwasher. He just did in the washer and dryer. I am praying for the furnace! Stick Out Tongue
