Royally Annoyed

4 Feb

So my EDD is tomorrow. There’s gonna be a newborn baby any minute. My sister and niece are arriving tomorrow. And that’s the moment our boiler decided to break down! No hot water, no heat. Thank god, at least it’s a relatively warm winter this year. So far it’s 68 degrees indoors. I put some pots of water on the stove to heat up the house.

But really, REALLY bad timing.

And, of course, a technician charges 50% more on weekends. And what with the imminent labour and guests’ arrival, we cannot wait until Monday!!!

UPD: I’m a genius. Before forking up $200+ to a technician, I decided to switch the boiler’s fuse off and on. Seems to have done the trick! Had a nice HOT shower and it’s nice and cozy at home πŸ˜‰
