I have to say I’ve had the worst week for a long time this week, if the flood wasn’t bad enough the mud we have now is terrible. It’s been walked into the entrance hall mainly by visitors to the apartments who obviously couldn’t care less.
Yesterday our boiler started leaking and I had to ring for someone to come out who arrived at teatime. He was a nice smiley young man who although nice couldn’t fix the leak because he needed a part, So he turned off our hot water instead. 😳 So we have no hot water. I said WHAT! You mean we have to live with no hot water now? I’m sure he found it funny,
Has he was leaving I said “enjoy your hot shower tonight” and almost said think of me, luckily I stopped myself because it would have sounded a bit weird! 😬☺️
After he had gone our online supermarket shopping came and John told him to wait at the entrance and we would come down. We rang down the stairs and then heard the lift moving! Yep, someone had let him through the main door with his big wheeler trolly. We rang back up the stairs just as the lift opened and he pushed the trolley on to the beige carpet on our floor. STOP we shouted and made him stay in the lift whilst we took the shopping. I can’t tell you how bad the carpet looked when he had gone! I got a bowl of COLD water and some vanish stain remover and gave it a good scrub, luckily it cleaned up good and then I mopped out the lift. By then I could have done with a shower myself ….. but guess what! no hot water!
This morning John had to go out after boiling the kettle to get washed in ( it was like the old days ) and after he had gone the building fire alarm went off. Now we have a stay put procedure in our apartments but I couldn’t resist looking out into the hallway. Nearly everyone on our floor was out there ! “What’s happening I asked”.? but obviously nobody knew.
I went back into my apartment and the cat was freaking out because of the alarm! I thought if we had to vacate she would have to go into the cat basket which we hates. If I had to force her in no doubt I would get scratched and being a warfarin taker ☺️ I would probably bleed 🩸 to death.
I weighed up the pros and cons, die in a fire or die from fighting with the cat and bleeding to death. It was a tough choice. Then I saw the fire engine 🚒 arrive and breathed a sigh of relief. Five minutes later the alarm stopped and I popped my head out of the door to find the other tenants still around and asked “ What happened “ It was the lady at number 4 who burnt her toast 🤬 she was the lady who let the supermarket order in through the door last night. I wonder if I can get her evicted 🧐😏😉
It’s nearly 4pm and still no hot water 😩 I’m not enjoying this week at all. Never mind it’s another blood test tomorrow, I hope she has some beef recipes. 👍
