Books, Boilers and Broken Locks
Course-wise we are looking at The Secret Agent and The Ladies' Paradise this week.
On a less pleasant matter I'm still having issues in the non-Uni world. Yesterday I managed to lose my keys and, as T is away at the moment, I locked myself out. Luckily the locksmith came quickly and fitted a nice new lock for me. I must have looked very suspicious, just standing outside a door as it got darker and colder but at least it wasn't too cold and it was dry and I was back inside within an hour of calling the locksmith. About two hours later I realised my boiler wasn't working so no heating or hot water. Because of my schedule the first time I can get British Gas out is Friday morning. I can cope without the hot water (lots of kettles) and I've persuaded myself that it isn't that cold so I don't need the heating (and indeed this morning seems to be as bad as it will get) but please keep your fingers crossed for me it's only a little part that's needed and not a new boiler!
Thank you for reading & hopefully the next entry will be more cheerful. I'm hoping to finish Vile Bodies and the new Stephen King so will try and update on those. Thanks again ...
