a shitty day indeed

my microwave blew up.  recently my friend carol came over for lunch and i thought i heard a small bang in the kitchen. the microwave, while heating up some pasta sauce, had stopped.  the light and timer were still on.  i pressed the start button and it seemed fine, although i was a bit wary of it.  well, yesterday, i was taking some rubbish out and i heard a loud bang.  i went back inside and the same thing had happened, only this time there was a nasty smell.  it took me forever to get it sorted.  i had to pull the fridge out and clean behind that and take the microwave outside.  that wasn't easy as it weighs a ton.  it was one of those combination ones but i very rarely used it for that.  i was finally getting that sorted out when for some reason my modem wouldn't work.  i didn't touch it, it just stopped working.  so i played around with that for nearly an hour thinking i'd have to ring telstra to come and look at the connection when it came back on again.  ahhhh.  i really want to empty the fish pond outside and clean it out but the mice have been going underneath it and i just can't bring myself to go near it.  i hadn't seen a mouse for ages but there he was this morning, happily frolicking in the back garden.  little b.  i hate mice.  i wouldn't mind but i'm so scared of them and anthony put some baits out there for me the other day.  why are they still there?  my girlfriend gave me about twenty+ little fish on saturday that i've got in a bowl in the kitchen.  they'll have to wait until my son comes over and helps me with the pond.  all that and some more 40 plus degree weather is expected this week. i'm over it.

lots of little fish all shapes and sizes

i'm wondering if i really need a new microwave or if i can do without one

  1. I couldn't go long without a microwave. Fortunately, they're much cheaper than they used to be.

  3. Love the fish.
    Sounds like you had a right proper mess with the microwave.
    I use mine every day for one thing or another. You will work it out if you need one or not.
    Keep cool, I see it's hot over your way. Xx
