A Blue Sunday?

Today is one of those days that did not work out so well. The plan was to go to my sister for the day but I slept too late. Not a good start.thumbs down

I went to bed too late and still read for a while before finally switching the light off. I silenced the alarm when it went off at 9 am and went back to sleep. I woke up again at 11:30am when my sister phoned to hear where the hell I was. Not very impressed with me at all.mumbling

Then I found a lot of water on the kitchen floor. Fridge packed up. Dried the floor and transferred the contents of the freezer compartment to the chest freezer before breakfast. Not my day.sigh

It is raining outside; cold and heavy overcast with a slight breeze. Winter has arrived early this year. So much for global warming.snowed in

While trying to think what to make for lunch the doorbell rang. It was my favorite neighbor telling he will withdraw the assault case I would only apologize. Not being in the best frame of mind I told him I’m sorry for not giving him the hiding that he deserved before telling him in not so polite terms what to do with himself. What did he expect me to say? Come in and let’s drink on it?doh

And I still don’t know what to eat. I’m not in a mood to make food. Maybe KFC; if I feel like driving later. Otherwise I have a few meat pies in the freezer. To hell with Sunday lunch today.burger

I should crawl back into bed with my book. Some days are not made for human consumption. blues

I hope your day pans out better than mine.wave

maybe you need a good bowel movement.laugh
Hello dear friend. .....your refrigerator just needs a new start relay for the compressor. Its an easy fix. I just replaced one on my sisters refrigerator and it is good for another 15 years. It just snaps in without the need for tools...usually. ......I wish all of your other problems were as easy a fix.......and you handled your neighbor correctly. I knew his stupid self would eventually address you.....

Hi Candykid
I fix most things myself but fridges is not my strong point. Thanks for the advice. I think I know what part you;re talking about. Does it sit close to the motor; about the size of a fuse in a black plastic casing?

Hi Viking
I don't really care about the rest of my day. I'm back it bed with my laptop, a chunk of cheese and half a jar of olives. I'll see how I feel later. Luckily I never get visitors on a Sunday as everybody knows that I normally visit my family on Sundays.

Hey Mr. Cat, day is still young down there. I missed the morning mass due to blogging. Then had to catch up with a tri lingual mass.
Get the charcoal out and some boerewors on the braii. Sure that will keep you warm. Damn I miss Africa. crying crying cheers
Yes exactly. It is on or near the compressor. It will have 2 or 3 wires that can easily slide off. I did alot of research about this as I had never done it before, and I did not want my sis to have to buy a new refrigerator. It is the most common problem with refrigerators. When you take it off, shake it and listen to the sound. If it rattles or makes any kind of sound like there is something shaking around in it. That is definitely the problem.

Hi 123butterflies. .....an interesting fact about butterflies. ...... Butterflies drink crocodiles tears.

I'm actually quite sorry about dispatching him the way I did. He just arrived at the wrong time. But what is done is done.

Hi Flutterby
Yes, I think I must get my a** out of bed, open a bottle of wine and get something substantial in my stomach. I had breakfast at noon, so perhaps it is time to start thinking about rustling up something to eat.doh

@ Cat - Sorry to hear that your day was a fizzer.....blues ... but honestly... "Some days are not made for human consumption" ...... when was the last time that you ate a human.... wow confused ..... grin cheers

Hi Usha
Yes it is great in Africa. But the weather is not conducive for a braai today. Though my barbeque is under a roof, two sides are open and it is cold and unpleasant outside.

Ok then, I will have a look at it tomorrow. The fridge is barely out of guarantee and I would have blown a gasket if I had to buy a new one. Actually I thought it was the thermostat. I did replace that once or twice before. Just as well you told me because I would have gone to buy one tomorrow. I did not know about that little gadget also giving problems.doh

Hi Hans.
This is Africa; we eat a lot of funny things here.laugh

Did you think that long pig was restricted to the south sea islands.rolling on the floor laughing

@ Cat - Well.... I hear that long pig tastes the same as pork..... laugh rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing .... confused .... maybe this is just a big cat thing.... laugh rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing .... grin cheers

It is always something...dishwasher...freezer...what's next?...then your neighbour...hide in the bed covers with your cheese and olives til it is safe to come out!!Hoping Monday is better!!wine

oh Catfoot.... my Sunday was not too good too...

I dont know what was going on in Ataturk airport (Istanbul) but today very long queues in passport checking have made some peoples got angry. I was in queues for 2 hours, dammnnn.....frustrated which usually I could got out from there just in 15 minutes.
Catfoot
Hi Hans
Yes, I believe so; that is why they call it long pig. Amazing as it may sound, even in our modern age, cannibalism is still practiced in certain parts of the world. It is believed that by eating your enemy's brain you can learn his plans. doh

Hi Loulou
Hmm, last month it was my microwave oven but I fixed that. Now it is the fridge. I wonder what is next?doh

Hi Smarty
I sent them an anonymous email hinting that their top scientist trying to board a plane to the USA with the blueprints of his latest laser gun. I hope you don't miss your flight. You should have told me that you would be at the airport and I would have postponed my prank until you had left.rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing

@Candykid
I hope you are still around. I have just switched the fridge on. The motor does not run but the fridge is getting HOT inside. The quarter inch gas pipes is getting so hot that it burned my finger when I touched it. Is that normal? I switched it off again.
confused dunno
Smartassss
that is a nice of you CF, but I only need a "green line" card from you so that I would not have to be on queues every I were at the any airports... laugh

Smartassss
I think I need your advise how to take a fun of flying, moreover for long hours flight... like more than 10 hours on the air... uufff... so boring and tired... frustrated

I think the fact that you didn't go out was a blessing from God. The fridge was going out and the Lord knew it so He wanted your damage minimal.

The only thing I would think about is to forgive the neighbor, but only you know what the details are and it's still up to you.

The other day the neighbor I thought was a friend got mad at me for waking him up at 8:45 am to invite him out to lunch. He blew his top off at me and threatened to knock me out. I just walked away from him.

I didn't get the chance to tell him he missed out on a great lunch! AND FREE, AT THAT!!
Catfoot
Hi Bung
True, and I think it's time to get my lazy a** out of bed. I'm getting hungry and the wine is taking its toll. It seems that the cheese and olives is not a good stomach liner.
Catfoot
Hi Samrty
It is just a matter of utilizing the time properly. The first four hours you drink, the next five hours you sleep and then the last hour yo spend apologizing to everybody about your snoring. If you don't snore, learn how to do it, otherwise you will have nothing to talk about while recovering from your hang over.

Hi Ed
The fella opted to manhandle his wife in his backyard and I jumped over the fence to pull him off his wife and he took a swipe at me. I guess he is not used to people hitting back.

I have no beef with him. He seems to be having a problem with me.doh
cheers wave
When you say it is getting hotter inside, do you mean that it is accumulating heat after it is plugged in more so than when it is not? Or is it the same? And what quarter inch pipes are you referring to? Refrigerators dont have gas pipes.
Catfoot
Hi Candykid
It is the pipe coming from the compressor into the fridge compartment and back to the compressor. It normally gets ice cold and accumulate ice on it. Not now, it gets so hot that I cannot touch it and the motor does not start up. confused dunno

Hi Cat, wave a day in bed with a book and a laptop is an ideal Sunday for me. laugh

Some bug is creeping up on me uh oh and not feeling great the last few days but a quiet day will help to shake it off.

Will dig around in my freezer tongue for a nice soup I know I have there and try to eat something. Slept for a good part of the day and started on book no. 2 myself.
Catfoot
Hi KN
That is a brilliant suggestion. I'm sure I have some soup in my freezer as well. This is soup weather. I wish I had some home baked bread with it but I guess bakery bread will have to do.doh

@Cat...wow....what a lousy start to your day...I hope the rest of the day settled down to a slow crawl with no further incidences.....Bed, book and KFC.....good plan of action....thumbs up handshake wine

@KNenagh...sorry to hear you feeling a bit under the weather...but seems like you have it all under control....soup, sleep and laptop in bed rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing sounds like good medicine to me hug
KNenagh
Soup weather here as well. sigh

Enjoy and hope you'll get the freezer going again. wave
Catfoot
Hi Kitty
I think the only thing that can go wrong when you are in bed is that you can wet the bed and that did not happen (yet).laugh

Mercifully the rest of the day went ok.
