Some guys can erect garden furniture

Or remove washing machines. But not us. We now have a half removed washing machine blocking up the incredibly tiny kitchen, and managed to turn off the cold water, so we can unplumb the cold water tap. But the hot water tap eludes us. We've tried turning a variety of things to no avail. I'm at work now, and can't do anything about it, but I'm exceedingly worried that Comet will dump a new washing machine on us without removing the old one, on the grounds that the old one isn't unplumbed. Given that we live on the third floor it's going to be a fucking nightmare to get rid of an unwanted washing machine - even assuming we get that far... Of course the most likely thing is that Comet fail to turn up altogether, or the delivery bods take one look at the stairs and refuse to do the job, or the new machine turns out to have been eaten from the inside by mice.

Meanwhile work is being work and driving me nuts, but not in any worse way than usual. I've requested a couple of application packs, so I may get around to applying for something else, but I wouldn't bet on it. To be honest the job is so far from being the worst problem in my life that I feel I don't have the energy to deal with it until a few other things have settled down, but we'll see.

I'll be at The Filmhouse tonight come what may, and as Tesco can't deliver today and we're unlikely to have a working kitchen, I'll probably be turning up early and eating there, especially since I didn't get a nice dinner last night due to bloody plumbing. Bah.
