So far, this year has been anything but happy.
I just hope that it’s not laying down a pattern for the rest of the year?
Firstly the cat went missing. This was unusual as she normally spends the evening pissing me off looking for food or something. So while I was enjoying the peace and tranquillity, there was a nagging suspicion that if Cat was indeed a gonner then I was going to have to put up with Herself and her demands for a new [probably non-housetrained] cat.
Fortunately Cat did turn up. She had somehow locked herself in the downstairs bedroom. Honest, Judge. I didn’t do it. It was probably Penny. Good dog!
Then my pipe lighter sprung a leak. I discovered where the leak is but can’t find a way to fix it without spare parts. I have two other [broken] lighters of the same make but do you think I could find them?
The kitchen drains need cleaning. I noticed that the sink was taking longer than usual to empty, and it’s getting worse. I haven’t plucked up the courage yet for that one.
Yesterday I went down to the library because I was out of books. There was a sign on the door saying they were retuning to normal hours on the 2nd January. Yesterday was the 2nd January. They were closed!
Then this morning the fresh bottle of milk I opened was grand and sour so I had to nip down to the village for more.
ANow I have a headache..
