Up at six this morning - still dark, the sea just about seen through the windows that really need cleaning.
As do I. But I can't do anything about that as my washing machine is broken and it's turning into one of those days of endless waiting for an engineer to come and fix it - it started to smell odd the last time it was used. There was a burning smell in case you are wondering. I turned it off before it ignited. Were I to take a bath now it would be the very moment that the engineer arrives. That 'now' is clearly extending into the whole morning. He/She has until 1pm at which point I shall dive in and damn them.
One of my neighbours must have had a similar dilemma only the other day but I think this is a rubbish solution to the problem.
