Things I Know

I saw this today on Tina's blog so I thought I would play along

Things I know .......
  • When you call Telstra to get a connection in your house moved not only will you not be able to understand half the stuff they are saying  but they will also screw up the work order 
  • The speed of your internet doesn't mean shit if your connection isn't wired properly                               
  •  When the Gas plumber tells you in march that your hot water system is on its last legs don't wait till august before you do anything about it.
  • It is not at all pleasant to wash your hair in cold water in winter when you hot water system packs it in half way through your shower .
  • The bathroom will not clean itself while you blog........but I still hold out hope.
  • Don't bother getting quotes for someone to come and dig a hole for an above ground pool because it will cost just as much as the pool. 
Thank god it is Friday and im off out tonight have a great weekend all :)

I hear you on the hot water factor. We went the first half of winter with out hot water. OMG! Boy did we save some water, mind you I think we have more than made up for it now.

Bummer about the hot water system. I'm thinking something is up with ours. It's not heating up as much as it used to and I don't think anyone has turned down the heat :s

Have a great weekend! x

Oh no to the hot water. My big boy often gets up early and has a bath before I get in the shower... I'm too scared to even start washing my hair these days, been caught out too many times!

I too have been a victim of water heater death. I had to walk to my Mums every day before work to have my shower, pain in the ass!

Hope you get some service soon from Telstra.
We just replaced our electric HWS ... My 18 always uses all the hot water , I am the last to shower . Hate cold showers.

totally bummer about the hot water... nothing worse then a cold shower... ooch! hope it gets fixed soon and you can get back to the nice warm relaxing showers.... ive been caught out mid way through shower and the hot water pilot light goes off... even worse when the hair still has shampoo in it!
