Oh no!

I'm out of book!

I finished The Villa in Italy by Elizabeth Edmondson last night - it was fantastic. Great story and well written.

So now I am left with Seventh Heaven (the 7th book in the Princess Diaries series) and The Poison Principle by Gail Bell - which is not a book I feel like reading just before bed. Not surprisingly considering that it is an examination of poisons and poisoners. Interesting though.

We are starting our book club on Scrapbook Divas next week so I dropped into the library to see if they had got the book in for me but it wasn't there. We are reading The Rain Queen by Katherine Scholes. I really enjoyed The Stone Angel so I am hoping this book will be in a similar style. So I picked up Make me an Idol instead. I also realised that I have a Michael Pryor book (Blaze of Glory) to read that someone lent to me last year, so I had better pick that one up and check it out.

Oh, and I didn't win the CC (except for the bring a friend prize!) but I had a really good time and it was good to get some scrapping done - finally! Hope you all enjoyed the layouts!

Out of the mouths...

We have recently suffered a few power outages, one of which happened this morning. Of course, I had to explain to the girlie just why the lights had all gone out.

Later this afternoon, when I wanted her to pay attention to what I was saying, I asked her as usual, to "turn her ears on". (No she's not deaf - I just like her to concentrate!). When I asked her if she was listening she said "I think my power's gone..."

Back to the Stone Age!!!!!!

Well, I don't seem to be having much luck with electrical appliances.

After deciding that the lino really wasn't that bad (Max the moving man bringing my washing machine home early helped in that decision!) I moved the new little freezer into place (well, Max did) and then helped him move the washing machine in. After I had cleaned the floor of course. I'm not sure which of us was more excited about the new freezer actually...

After he had left and I had sorted out a few bits and pieces, I turned it on.

2 hours later it was a little bit cool.

The next morning it was a little bit cooler.

I decided not to test it with icecream but with esky freezer blocks instead.

When I got home, the freezer blocks were a little bit cool but as close to frozen as a snowball in...well, you know.

So I turned it off and hoped that there wasn't something I missed in the manual. Now I get to play another round of phone tiggy with a repairman. Oh, joy...

...at least it is still in warranty.

On the up side, my washing machine is working fine. It's still dirty in parts I can't reach to clean so no doubt it will clog again, but at least it is working. Now I can just sit back and wait for the bill...
