Day before yesterday I noticed that my fridge wasn’t performing as it should, but I didn’t think more about it.
Then yesterday – where I was rather busy – I finally got home at 18:00 I was reminded by the fridge that it was only a light switch without any cooling power; as the butter was soft when I picked it up from the fridge. Oh what tedious problems!
After having slept on the thoughts: shall I get it mended or replaced? I determined after having spoken to my “white ware” mender that it properly wasn’t worth mending as the poor thin was between 8 and 10 years old; and as he couldn’t replace mine before Wednesday next week I had to look somewhere else; not Currys but I went to John Lewis; that is I checked online and found the fridge larder I wanted but couldn’t work their website for next day delivery.
After the U3A computer group session and running Vernon back home, I went shopping at JL and within 5 minutes my fridge was purchased and it will be delivered tomorrow afternoon; not only will they bring the new one but they will also dispose of my old one.
Then I went to the library for my 2 sessions of ITbuddy’ing.
It started with a creaky 1st step on my staircase. I had a builder/handyman in two days running.
On the 1st day he fixed the 1st step – beautiful! It is now not creaking and feels very safe.
On the 2nd day he converted the hollow below the stairs to a cupboard space.
See pictures below.
Isn’t that just a good use of wasted space?
Now all I need to do is paint the door and frame.
I teach 4½ days a week either in my classroom or privately at my student’s homes. In the remaining time I update or write my lessons. I also find time to fix PCs – now and again.
I play poker at least twice a week and I sometimes manage to squeeze Tuesday evening poker in as well.
I try once a month to visit my 98-year-old aunty, who is doing remarkably well for her age. She even plays bridge twice a week. It keeps her mind active.
I am also busy updating my “Cookery Book for my Mother” both the online and the paper version.
