This week’s, now last week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is/was “Broken”
(I should have removed the greasy fingerprints from the oven door BEFORE taking the photo!)
I trawled through my photographs for over an hour looking for inspiration as to a suitable photo for this weeks now last week’s photo challenge “Broken”
The photo I wanted to use was nowhere to be found (mental note: reorganise photo files) and I’d given up hope! Now, as they say, be careful what you wish for because during this time I’d also turned on the oven to cook dinner. Yes you know what’s coming next.
Grrrrrr the pigging oven turned itself off. It was BROKEN, Kaput!
Frustrated, I fiddled with all the oven controls (as you do) praying I had inadvertently set it to timer. No such luck! After further knob twiddling and button pushing I resigned myself to the fact that my oven was indeed broken.
Under normal circumstances I would have just shrugged it off, but tonight was a “special night” – I’d finally picked my Rhubarb which I’d been growing for two years and my long-awaited Rhubarb Crumble was now destined for the freezer instead of the oven!
We immediately called an appliance engineer however, trying to make yourself understood in pigeon Portuguese on the telephone is nigh on impossible. I “think” an engineer is coming next week. We will see!
