Cooking with Gas

and washing with electricity (and water).

Today was the day for getting appliances connected. :hat:

We've had our cooker, dishwasher, and washing machine in the new house for a couple of weeks, but we needed to have a plumber come and connect them all. He did come last Friday, but without his tools. Seems his van was giving trouble and the dealer sent it off to a garage in another town without telling him or giving him a chance to get anything from it. But he had a look at all the different jobs and made a plan for what needed to be done.

He was due to come yesterday, but there was an emergency – flooded chapel – that he had to deal with. So finally he showed up and spent the whole day sorting out everything. It turned out everything that needed to be done was a bigger job than I had imagined. I would have been way over my head, though I had already realized when the connectors on the cooker had me flummoxed.

So tonight I made a hot, home-cooked dinner, loaded our dishes into the dishwasher, and tomorrow will be laundry day. 😀

  1. After a week of sandwiches and take-aways it sure was. ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ :star:Yeah, and we weren't even that bad off without. We had electricity, water, heat, a roof over our heads.Moved in, but there's still so much unpacking. :faint:

    Sounds like something that may happen in Serbia as normal thing :doh:

  3. In fairness, he had no idea that his van was going to go missing on him. It's really the garage's fault. At least he did come when he had promised to, which is more than you can say for some tradesmen. 🙄

  4. I have no decency…after what I went through with LWU….there is no decency left in this world :eyes:

  5. A 'c' before an 'e' has a soft sound as in /s/. If you write sceptic it sounds like septic as in tank. lolThen again maybe you are descending septically. :yuck:

  6. That stinks. :down:But according to Opera's dictionaries it's sceptical -> English (UK)skeptical -> English (US)So now I'm just confused.

  7. No, I'm being phonetically correct. The 'c' before the 'e' makes no sense at all. Besides, why would anyone want to be English (UK) anyway? Is that really any better than being American?

  8. The way I understood spellling, Canadian English could use either dictionary as long as it's consistent. And I couldn't stand being consistently American. :yuck:

  9. Oh well, let's all just switch to esperanto before WWIII breaks out.I'll still keep an OED by my side though.
