It never rains but it pours

It’s a good job we’re not out on Herbie lately ‘cos I wouldn’t want her to experience the run of bad luck we are having at home. Everything seems to be breaking.  How’s this for a list:

Just before Christmas our freezer stopped working – luckily under guarantee and now fixed

then since Christmas, all of the following

One of our loos (yes like M Lautrec we have two) stopped flushing.  I managed to fix that by making a new valve flap in the syphon lift pump

Our rotary washing line pole broke in the strong wind (now five inches shorter)

Our microwave started acting up so we got a new one

Our fridge (OK it was 20 odd years old) packed up, so today we ordered a new one.

What next? I wonder.

Appliances do tend to break down in clusters - I've always put it own to aliens!

As long the humans are not breaking down then the rest is easiy fixed at Curry's :-D

Oh dear. How depressing. I hope the run of break downs is now over!
