There's a hole in the bucket.... To fix or not to fix....
You know this song? There's a hole in the bucket dear Liza, dear Liza..
It's cold outside, it's Holland, so it's mostly grey and wet... my camera is stalling so I need to get it fixed. Soon.
Went to the dentist this afternoon, got a tooth fixed...temporarily!
Switched on the ceiling light upstairs and there was a flicker and darkness..needs fixing.
Tried to finish a pair of trousers I'm sewing and the machine is stuttering, eh...needs a thorough cleaning and eh fixing?
The moment I use the hot water tap our heating system stops (and only resumes action after manually switching a tiny stubborn knob which is clearly not meant to be switched manually) so this needs fixing too.
The conversation with the local authorities concerning collecting garbage went surprisingly well, I was able to make an appointment this week (!) and they will come to collect the stuff that's too bulky/heavy. Reasonably priced too! But... I knew there had to be a cinch: someone (duh) needs to be present at our house from 7.30 in the morning till 16.00 hrs. That'll be me I guess... And all this junk has to be ready out on the street in the morning at 7.30! Not the evening before...
Well fix it, dear Karen, dear Karen fix it!
To cut a long story short, it's alcoholtime! Cheers!
