Water, water everywhere... [Jun. 16th, 2004|04:16 pm]

Had a half-day holiday last night, so went off home, cooked a yummy red thai curry, bunged the washing machine on and went to bed early...

Got up today, full of the joys of summer, went to the washing machine, opened the door and...


Yup, the drum is not spinning properly and sounds like it's about to die, and its not drained either. I have water all over the kitchen carpet and wet stuff in a bag waiting to be sorted out again.


Not much I could do about it in a hurry, so I went in town, sorted out the water rates arrears (now on 83 quid a month, on top of 100 a month electric, 80 council tax, 100 phone bill arrears, 465 rent, 100 loan repayment, 15 net, 9 tv licence, etceterah etceterah blah de blah...and a grand a month pay!), went to the cash exchange for repairman cash, bunged 80 in the bank to cover overdraft...

Bought Jui-ehh!! a mirror and a card for her 21st, which was yesterday but I won't see her till work tonight, then went to Argus for a new toaster, scales and a bloody great chopping board with a knife drawer.

Lugged all that home, will be making bread tommorrow morning, once I've dealt with the washing machine mess and kitchen in general - the repair man can't come till tommorrow afternoon - grah!!

Been out to the shop for breadmaking supplies - olive oil, salt, etc etc - and just eaten a rather yummy spinach and feta cheese pasty slice from Holland and Barrett.

Running a cold bath and I'll tackle the kitchen later *grin*

Oooh, what kind of bread will you be baking? I used to love making bread, but it's been awhile since I've had the chance!

Going to start with a basic white/wholegrain mix - then I shall progress to all sorts of other types - cinammon loaves are tempting me at present...

Oh god, cholesterol attack!!!

That mirror, why not include the message "Just look at yourself, young lady" in matronly script.

And... can you make currant bread with that thing? That would indeed be a wonder. Add a touch of cinnamon, yum. You could toast a few slices, a bit of butter.... pure luxury.

Er, I'm too full of 'good advice' today, me shuts up.

That would be cruel. Won't do it.

Of course I can make currant bread, pizza dough, gluten free stuff, herby italian stuff... It'll never last from baking rack to breadbin - too much temptation in a hot buttery loaf form.

Oh dear.

a few things.
1) thanks for the reply on my post. all (mostly) sorted now.)
2) use fresh yeast in foil packets. not dried, it never works right
3) breadmaker = pile on pounds. dont say i didnt warn you. ours is banished in light of my diet.
4) 100 per month electric? how? i leave my PC on 24/7 plus lights and tv and stuff, we're on like £60 per quarter.... are you on a key or something?

1) Cool! *big hugs*
2) I do - my mother has given me all the necessary stuff and got so excited she showed me how to make one in hers - I have the next model up hahah!!
3) Flatmate eats all the bread round here - much as I enjoy it, tis mostly an attempt to give him something to do apart from everquest and save me money as well;) Not that I shall not eat at least some of the bricks I turn out lol!
4) 100 electric is due to arrears beyond my control (re.above), as are most of my bills;)
5)I KNOW I KNOW!!!! Just pencil me in as being off doing rehearsals or something!! I'll get stuff written up in due course, and you can email me the notes for this saturdays game:)

*big hugs*
