A Week of Gremlins

A Week of Gremlins

There is a saying that everything comes in 3s, it's usually true for me, this week though it seems it comes in 7s. It started with the cooker failing, it's funny but it has been working perfectly until this week, we are having a new kitchen in soon and I was thinking of putting the old cooker back in (it's a built in one) as it worked well, but as it is brown it crossed my mind that maybe it would look out of place with all the new silver things that will be going into the new kitchen and just wondered if to invest in a silver one, so I went to have a look at a few in a showroom, the next day my old cooker failed, it is as if it knew I had fallen out with it!!

The next day my fire in the dining room failed, will not light at all so waiting for service men coming out to it. I waited for the 3rd thing to fail and yes it happened. The car's clutch had been playing up a bit for a while, now it refuses to go up even the smallest hill so is booked in for a new one in a couple of days. I thought that would be it and said to hubby "oh well everything comes in 3s".

BUT, the next day, can't believe it, my kettle is leaking, my iron has failed and my hair tongs are flickering, sometimes working and sometimes not, also British Telecom came up the street to do a job for a neighbor and when they went away I noticed my house phone dead. I rang them from my mobile phone and they had to send somebody out to connect us again. It is Friday now and hopefully the gremlins have now gone to spend next week somewhere else, not that I would wish all this on anybody else.

In between the bad bits I did finish this pretty little girl who is on Ebay until Sunday, her name is Lola, just 5 inches, I am feeling like using brighter colours as spring is on the way!
