kitchen poltergiest

Things move around in the kitchen.  They move when I’m not looking. They are not malicious, just playful. Last week I lost the milk. Two days later I found a rather warm and lively milk bottle in the microwave.  My mugs often move from the dresser to the microwave. 

I wonder what I’ll find in the microwave this morning?

new stop cock

new stopcockThis weekend Kevin popped around with his supped-up white van and extensive De-Walt toolkit.   Kevin replaced the stop cock under the kitchen sink,   replaced a couple of washers,   showed me his toolkit and van customisations, offered me a half-price radiator, discussed replacing my kitchen, explained about the Canadian plummer training system,  and told me  about his courtcase against a tap manufacturer because their tap design is just so silly it breaks within 6 months and he’d installed 26 of them in a rich client’s house.  

part of Kevin's toolkitKevins weekly visits are definitely one of life’s luxuries.
