I need to take some time out.

Yesterday my oven and microwave both decided to stop working properly within an hour of one another in the middle of cooking the Sunday Roast.
I kid you not. I've heard of solidarity but this is ridiculous - one is gas and the other is electric! ;)
I confess I did utter expletives as I first tried to complete a half cooked meal and some more as I then thought about what I need to do next.
It's even less fun when you start to realise how impossible it is to get what you need when you need it now - right after Christmas when stocks are low! Get the picture? It vies for top awful kitchen equipment story of all time with the year when my fridge freezer packed up without any prior notice three days before Christmas.
So today I'm going to be off scouring the internet and the stores for new equipment and then arranging for it to be delivered and fixed up.
While I'm at it I'm also going to take the opportunity for short break as I've had a lot of "stuff" on my metaphorical plate of late and need both a breather and time to pay attention to other matters which need sorting and fixing.
