How's your day?

Recommended Posts

Gonalston Farm Shop near Lowdham is open to 9pm. throughout Easter. Good luck to them, they'll be busy. I believe Easter opening depends on floor area. Too far for you though.

I don't need any more food thanks Phil.

We've farmed a load out to neighbours.. but the waste and incovenience is still very annoying.

Was it a new Fridge/Freezer when you had the kitchen fitted last year Col?

Nope.  It's a Samsung probably ten years old.  It failed shortly after purchase and was fixed by Samsung.  Been fine since but only the fan is running, the compressor isn't. I'm for getting a new one.. 'Er Indoors who hates change, thinks we should try to get it fixed.. which will take until at least Tuesday even if it's an economic proposition... which I doubt.

Probably just the capacitor on the motor which is simple if you’re into that sort of thing. After 10 years probably best to bite the bullet and buy a new one.

Usually one of two things fail in fridges, thermostat or starter capacitor, more modern units also have a small electronic board, but at ten years old, I'd go for the cap, ten minutes to change out, most of that is removing and replacing covers. The cap will knock you back around 10 to 15 quid or less. It's not a difficult job and you don't need a serviceman, usually a plug in, or one with two leads.

I keep spares for my well pump, been caught out before, and not much fun when you don't have water.

My freezer is over 20 years old, plenty of life in it and need to order a new starter cap for it, just in case, at over 20 yrs of continuous service, the cap has to be running on hope by now.

I got a Mars bar egg, not opened it yet but the box states there are two FULL SIZE Mars bars in there.  Full size nowadays are not the same as full-size when I was a kid.

Isn't it annoying when somethings " goes" when all the shops are closed over the festivities. A few years ago in a short space of time the fridge went, the oven went, the freezer followed and to top it all the washing machine, not to mention a couple of heaters. Mad scramble to get all the frozen goods taken care of.

I find things let me down at the wrong moment, ie, oven igniter went out just when I was ready to do dinner, washing machine when the wife filled it with water and clothes. I now keep three sets of ratchet pawls for that one, might just order a spare igniter for the oven...LOL

Today I have mostly been sulking. We had a 'little man round to clean the gutters awhile ago and he managed to move a join and it now leaks down the wall in the middle of the run.

Grumble grumble grumble but not really a problem as the join is over the kitchen extension and if I stand on  the roof I can reach it - easy peasy...  Except the way I access the roof (make that used to access the roof) is out of a small bedroom window and today I managed to get myself stuck half way. Herself was not impressed to find me stuck on the window cill cursing fit to burst and to add insult to injury I've twisted my back in the process. I'm almost positive my legs bent much further than they do now...

Seems to me it's the starter relay on the compressor, or some of the associated electronics.. but I really can't be bothered faffiing.

Sounds like a scene from a TV comedy!   Were you stuck outside the window or inside?   Seriously though, I'm sorry about your twisted back - hope it will feel better soon.

 Top half outside hands on the tiles for support (the roof slopes down) and bum in the air on the inside knees on the cill.

I was eyeing the gutter from the patio about an hour ago but got the 'dead eye' and a "don't even think about it"

While the weather’s been beautiful the washing machine has been on overtime and today is no exception,  I’m washing things I didn’t even remember we had and at the same time I’m chucking stuff out, already been to the charity shop and now filling the bin.  Must mention one important point ....... we’re having a water meter fitted on Wednesday, may as well make use of the water before we get metered!
