@TheDrummerWithTheAutoMail I hope the past few weeks have been going better.
@Razzy I'm glad you're feeling better and well done for the good grades!
@jacksparrow589 I'm glad you and your room mate are getting on well! And I hope your shoulder feels better soon!
-I've been in the new house with one of my flatmates for one week now, and I think we've settled in quite nicely. (Our third flatmate arrived this morning.) Although, throughout the week we ran into some mishaps and problems.
My friend has an awful habit of leaving appliances on; the hot water tap in the bathroom was left running for a few hours until I woke up during the night and heard it (then turned it off.) Then the day before yesterday, after using the oven in the evening, she thought she had turned the oven off (I thought so, too, since according to the dial it was set to "off".) But, again, I woke up at about 2am and smelled burning --and I knew it was kind of worrying that I could smell burning and I'm in the attic bedroom. I went downstairs and it turned out that the oven was still on, even though the dial said it was off! I grabbed the dial and realised it was loose and could come straight off, and when it was turned, it wasn't turning the actual switch. So I took off the dial and tried turning the switch, but it was stuck. So after about half an hour of stomping around, opening windows and doors, huffing and puffing and muttering "oh, bloody hell", wondering what to do, I looked in the cutlery drawer, hoping to find something that could help me turn the switch. And I found....the almighty potato masher! I hooked the switch into one of the gaps and managed to turn the switch to the off position. I wasn't making any effort to be quiet throughout that little saga, but my friend didn't even wake up --and she has the ground floor bedroom which is right next door to the kitchen. xP
We also found out our carbon monoxide alarm doesn't work. :S
- Having no internet in the house is annoying and boring. xP
