'They cannae tek ma frrrreedom' whilst being dragged off to be hung, drawn and quartered.
Yes, a tad over dramatic but it's how I feel!
We have two scintillating days of INSET before the cherubs descend on Friday!
Oh you know me, I LOVE my job and my work chums! It's actually great catching up with everyone, setting up the classroom, everything all new, clean and tidy! I'm looking forward to seeing my little clan on Friday - I've missed them!
It's also a bit strange not to be getting a child up for school! He's still applying for apprentice accountancy positions. Fingers crossed someone takes him on and gives him a chance.
Before we went away, my washing machine, which is only three years old, started showing me distressing pictures on its fancy pants LED display. It wouldn't drain, telling me there was a blockage and I'd to check the drainage hose/filter thingy which we duly did. It got a good clean too but refused to work! I was covered by insurance but the engineer couldn't come till Tuesday ( yesterday ).
He rang at 9am to say he'd be here betwixt 4 and 6. I spent the day pottering around in house and garden.
At 4.30pm he turned up. All 6ft 8" of him!! He'd brought a new pump with him. He was rather bemused though.
His paperwork said house no.18 ( I live nextdoor to No. 18!!!! )
He knocked. The door opened and he was talked at non stop. He couldn't get a word in. He was taken right through the house to the outside shed. He was wearing a T Shirt with the words
ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE REPAIRS.
He managed to interject with.
"No, I'm here to look at a washing machine."
My neighbour said no, my washer is fine, you are here to look at my shed
He had quite a discussion with her over it!
He was glad to get away!! She is a bit nuts whole hazelnuts, but lovely with it. It made me laugh though! Things that didn't make me laugh was the absolutely rank sewer like smell radiating from my washer as he fixed it!! It was pungent. It'd been sat for a week mind but I will make more of an effort to do the Tub Clean cycle more often!
Are you lot 'back to' anything this week?
Lots of love from
