Then when I was checking the electric fence, the red button was loose, so I took it off to straighten the copper wire, and the bolt came off. So, no electric fence :(. Switched it out to a solar one today, and don't think it's working at all.
Back inside, in the kitchen, I turned the tap off, and the whole lever came off in my hand ! Scrabbled under the sink to turn off the taps under there as water was just gushing out. Went to Menards and found a repair kit, Herbie started fixing it when he came home, but all the pieces are currently spread on the counter. Still no water in the kitchen. I'm not very experienced in plumbing. Happy times.
Went down to milk this afternoon, and the instant hot water heater isn't working again. This is the replacement one. They told me that the rust in our water was to blame for the previous one stopping working. So had to schlepp 4 buckets of hot water through the flooded tunnel. More happy times.
So that's 4 things that have gone wrong, wait, there are 5, 6 & 7, three days the sheep have busted their fence and I've had to remove nails, and screw the boards back into place.
Rained today. On top of all the melted snow, so the back yard is a mud pond. Lisa has been taking the goose egg out of the window well. I've told her no, and smacked her about it, but today found the egg next to the path to the chicken house. So I broke it for the chickens to eat. Not sure how I'm going to protect future eggs from her.
Have a progressive Italian supper with the neighbours on Sunday. I was given the soup or salad to make. Seemingly I was last on the list and didn't get to choose anything. Oh well, let's see how it goes.
