Trouble In Threes

My mum said that trouble always comes in threes and so it appears this week.

First off was the dishwasher that decided to turn our kitchen in to an indoor swimming pool. I know it’s a first world problem but with dishes for six people every morning and night it’s something we decided to deal with straight away.

Second was the car. A minor service turned in to a minor raid on the bank. I acknowledge that I know nothing about cars but there’s always that underlying feeling you’re being ripped off when the mechanic tells you the long list of things they have found. Note to self, must explain to clients a lot better when I want them to spend money to make their site better.

And this morning confirmation on the worse trouble of all. It looks like my coffee machine has something wrong with it. I know, I know! How will I get through? Sigh. I love my coffee but after the last two hits to the wallet my caffeine habit is going to have to take a back seat until I find another machine on sale.

Hopefully the money gods have had their fill for now.
