Well this has been a funny old week.
So far i've had two surprises
If you remember I bought a plunger, all ready for washing and was full of grand plans for making a bucket washing machine, and then a very good friend turns up with this!
So that was surprise number one,how's that for ironic? haha :)
The bad news, is that after a look under the sink, we don't actually have the pipe that attaches to the waste trap...which is no surprise in this house!
So, i reported it to the housing association, and am waiting to hear back.
I gave it a try and put the pipe in my washing tub to catch the water!
My goodness it is loud! After going for so long without one, the noise level gave me quite a shock! Especially on the spin cycle.
Surprise number two was this!
A gas cooker! Brought to me by the same friend, it cost only £20!
More bad news is the gas pipe won't fit because when they refurbished the kitchen before we moved in (though you wouldn't know to look at it lol) they built an extra cupboard next to the sink and now the gas pipe won't fit because the gap between the pipe on the wall and the cupboard is too narrow, and also the pipe is capped, so another problem to report to the housing association!
I have beautiful cooker and i can't even cook on it yet :(
But i have lots of ideas for what i'm going to make :)
On a happier note, i made my first French onion soup! Oh my goodness! It was delicious!
I sprinkled cheese on top and made cheese on toast to go with it :)
I also spotted my first ever toadstool on a walk with friends.
Isn't it adorable? :)
I couldn't get a very good picture due to slow shutter speed
What have you been up to?
