bah humbug

Mmmm, hot showers.

Getting a lift in with Suze this morning, so I'm leisurely slobbing around instead of cramming on a tram and reading Lord of the Rings on my ebook reader. I'm so glad the movies didn't keep all the songs of the book. I enjoy LOTR very much, it's just so overwritten!

Gassy update: Plumber turned up 4 hours late on Monday and was too tired to bother to try to fix the leak (it was 7.30pm). Instead, he turned off the valve to the stove, hoping that it was the very old hotplate knobs which were leaking, and told me to call him in the morning to let him know whether or not the smell went away (if yes, it was the stove that needed fixing. If no, it would mean tracking back the gas lines for the leak). Of course, the gas smell got worse once he turned off the stove. Turned out the copper pipe leading into the stove was split ... just where the pipe was buried in concrete. Took plumber junior (offsider) about 5 hours to dig up the concrete floor in front of the stove to uncover enough pipe to fix the leak. Still, all's well that ends well, right? Except, yesterday morning we had no hot water. Plumber junior had restarted our hot water cylinder, but air in the lines from the fixing made it go out again (unbeknownst to us). We couldn't restart it, and had to get him to drop around yesterday to relight it. Voila! Lovely, too long, hot shower this morning, and spanky-clean hair (I was sooo desperate to wash my hair yesterday - but not as desperate as Alana, who washed her hair in a freezing cold shower).

ION, I'm mentally screaming in terror as christmas approaches fast and I've yet to post a single card and still have to think of a few presents and then go get them. ARGH. One of these days, christmas will kill me. Or lead me to kill others. One or the other.
