And my fridge died. It was the Fridge that Time Forgot, so no huge surprises there. However, my landlord is away for two weeks...
I think I see a pattern: I had just scrubby-cleaned the fridge (which was manky!!) and had done a defrag on the laptop. This may be the Universe telling me to stop tidying up.
The temporary replacement for the fridge is a lime-green mini-cooler, so it´s not all bad. Kinda feels like camping.
I´m in possession of spurious directions to a laptop repair place, so fingers crossed. My spidey-senses tell me that I shall neatly evade all problems by meandering through stationery stores buying notebooks (suitable for a writerly-type don´t you know), and checking out Pirates of the Caribbean.
And then... you guessed it! A beer or two in the sunshine :)
