The good morning thread
  • where did y'all go?

    mornin'
  • weekend, innit.

    I get to WFH today cos my housemate killed the washer. Washer repair person gave a 5-hour window to show up lol
  • Morning! Slept like shit, went to work...

    Oh, fitted a new GoPro mount to my helmet in work (bought by work). I was using a suction mount on the side of the bike, but it was pretty vibey...
  • My washer is repaired.
  • huzzah!

    apparently one of our dryers started smoking the other day, so the missus turned it off, re-washed the clothes and stuck them in the other dryer.

    i think the one which was smoking was the same make that has caused a number of electrical fires in the UK, so there's that...
  • oh yeah...remember how the generator was fixed last week. and then yesterday. and then today.

    how i ran the generator yesterday extra long to make sure i would have power all night. and now, on the flukiest of flukes (meaning, i called it yesterday as well), not only did the batteries not have enough charge but power from the grid did not come back at all so far today.

    so, it's being fixed today.

    i am pretty certain that i will stay in a hotel tonight because when i test it at 2pm and it's not working i am going to bitch and scream like i am doing every day and then i'm leaving.

    ps: so stressed out by this i did not sleep at all last night...trying to do that now...

    pps: i can't wait until we leave this place for good.
  • I think I might oversleep tomorrow, so I'll say MORNING now!

    Washers! Silent killers! Of your socks mainly but sometimes people as well! Be careful...
  • happy july 4th! for yesterday! oops!
  • morning :D
  • we are finally owners of our apt in gijon! my goodness, it took forever. everything was complicated - the apt was an inheritance so it had many owners and sorting everybody took too much time. at times, i thought it wasn't going to ever be finalized. renovations begin in sept!

    morn
  • Evenin'

    New hire at the hotel is working out ... OK. And the person she's replacing had her last day today. She was at times tediously obnoxious with co-workers, other times great to get along with. Meh.

    New hire can only stay till end of September (work visa's expiring), sooooo... yeah.

  • I had the poo.

    Sun/Mon are my weekend... another 8 hours and I'm freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ...

  • My housemates just informed me that the washer is, once again, broken. FML.
  • Oh?

    Today I dremel'd off an attachment that was proper screwed into the housemate's bathroom's shower thingy. Had about 10 yards of silicone tape put around the thread, about 10 years ago, so you know that thing wasn't coming off, even with a spanner and much swearing

    I replaced it with what I was attaching, including a new 10 yards of silicone tape :D
  • Morning!
