New Year's curse??? by kazzzz on 1 January 2009 10:25am
 
I can't believe it!!
I got up this morning and opened the blind and the whole thing fell off the wall and smashed me in the head!

THEN right outside the house a water main burst, we have no water and they're out there drilling up the footpath and half of our drive (right outside Ava's window where she's trying to sleep) and we can't get the car out. They said they will be there till after midnight.

We needed to go out so Ray thought he'd take the work truck (which strictly he's not allowed to do) and he's just come back in to say the battery is flat!!

AAAAAAAAAARGH and it's only the 1st! Cursed I tellya.

Sounds like a black cloud is following you, Kaz! Hope things turn around for the better real soon.

Things can only improve.

OUCH. kazzz, I send you a virtual creme egg. Maybe if you get all the bad stuff out of the way today, you will have nothing but peace, prosperity and joy the rest of the time.

Bad luck is supposed to come in threes, so you've had all you're going to get this time around. I hope it all gets sorted and back to normal soon!

I commiserate kazzz - I woke up to a freezing cold flat. The heating system had broken and I could not get any heat although I did have hot water. I rang the contractors at 9.30am but they didn't arrive until 00.45am. They couldn't fix it properly but bypassed the control system to leave the heating on - permanently. I am now waiting in for them to come and fix it properly.

Good luck Linz.

I hope they come soon, Linz. Sounds like something from "Brazil"--lol!
 
Re: New Year's curse??? by perfectbitch on 2 January 2009 2:48pm
 
Bloody Hell. They're now telling me that they can't come until Monday. I am worried that I won't be able to afford to pay for 3 days non-stop heating.

Oh, dear, what a chapter of accidents, indeed. Kazzz, hope your bad luck is indeed all over at once for 2009: Linz, hope you're fixed soon, with energy prices as they are.

My (Indian-born, Hindu) newsagent asked me about bad-luck crossed knives, things going in threes, etc. I said I thought they were Christian-based but couldn't exactly articulate how.

Anyway I hope things sort soon!
