Tilda with Hearts

What a disaster yesterday turned out to be., the gas man was supposed to be coming 8-1 in the morning as we had no heating or hot water, BG rang at 12.45 to say man held up with a gas leak was it ok to come later....... at 3.15 hubby said water is ok and put heating on so l asked him to ring BG and cancel repair man. When  l came back from school pick up at 4 water and heating off...hubby rang to ask Bg to come after all but as we cancelled 10 mins earlier it would be tomorrow they said. Well tomorrow is here and gas man been and yes you guessed it needs a part and will be coming back tomorrow (wednesday) so no heating or water again and my l have never needed a bath so much in my life. Little electric heater on in craft room so nice and cosy in here.

Todays disaster my sewing machine was 30 years old last month it was a gift for my 21st birthday - my daughter borrowed it a couple of months ago. To get mine back l ended up buying her a machine, then when she returned mine it had a little 'accident' in the car which she did'nt tell me about and when l opened it the bobbin pin was broken off and you have to replace the whole bracket to repair and for those who said how old is the machine........... obsolite and parts no longer available anywhere (spent ages playing with Mr Google but no luck)  Hubby said "go treat yourself to a new one" while fiddling with the snapped off spool pin which is plastic just like the bracket.
He disappeared into the kitchen and returned asking if this will do.... he melted the bracket and pin to weld it back together.... yippee it works....asked if l can have the sewing machine money for crafty bits lol (no reply)
