1/ Last weekend. Set mobile phone alarm to wake me after a doze. Fails to work. Set many times to test. Fails to work. Monday it worked. Discover obscure and buried setting to choose days for alarm. Set for weekdays, off for weekends.
2/ Mid week clothes dryer stopped drying. Overheats and cuts out after five minutes. Lack of air movement. Investigate new dryer. Nothing compatible with present venting. Remove dryer from wall and discover belt has come off. Put belt back, dryer back up and strain chest muscle in process.
3/ Equipment at work breaking down left right and centre.
4/ R is fond of his little desktop printer at work. It never fails him. Now his pc will be hooked up to a large central printer. Because of privacy issues, he must be trained in how to print on the big printer without what is being printed being viewable by anyone else. He wants to keep his own little printer.
5/ I totally screw up recording two tv programs. I am still struggling with the digital tv recorder. Because it can do so much, I make it do so much. Then I get confused at times. All R wants to do is watch a program and loses patience while I struggle.
6/ Regardless of above, for some reason now the digital recorder has decided it does not want to send the signal to the tv via the HDMI cable and will only use the RF? cables. Lucky I have them hooked up for the very reason of HDMI problems.
7/ And never mind how hard it was to simply put money in Sis in Law's bank account.
8/ Not very old paper shredder has not been good from the start. Always paper jamming. Should have taken it back. Normally I clear it with a skewer but this time it would not clear. Tried triggering the sensor with a knife and shredder started to drag knife in. Won't work at all now. Note to self, pay more than $35 for a paper shredder.
9/ R's workplace aircon has broken down. Eight days before a tradesperson can attend.
I blame climate change, ex President Bush, Maggie Thatcher and State gov ministers Kosky and Madden.
