What a broken week

July 19th, 2014 by Richard Bairwell No comments »

With my car already being a bit broken (a wall jumped out of it on the 15th of June and it’s not getting repaired until the 14th of August), my wife broke on Sunday, the washing machine keeps breaking down and now the kettle has gone kaput. On the plus side, the boiler (in the property we are renting) seems to be semi working again. *sigh*
