It’s been one thing after another lately.

You might recall the succession of things breaking down and going wrong in this house over the last couple of months.

It began with one of the computers, then, if I remember correctly off the top of my head, continued with (in no particular order), having to replace or fix the dishwasher, dryer, minibus, ending up with a four month old fairly-expensive-in-the-first-place-quilting-machine-that-I-rely-on-for-work developing problems and needing to be sent for repair where it sustained further damage and of course the minibus needing replacing.

I’m sure more has gone wrong but I can’t be bothered to go back to previous posts to check and if I can’t remember then my mind has blocked it for a reason. Reason likely being that I probably can’t handle much more.

Last week a bath (well, basin actually) tap broke and needed replacing and then we discovered the new minibus leaking steering fluid.

New minibus was taken to the garage this morning for a look over and a quote.

We now have to find another £500 to repair the steering box or something. And we were meant to be going away for our little family two day trip (the only kind of “holiday” we’ll have taken since 2007). If we can’t get the bus fixed we will have to cancel and then lose the money we’ve paid for the hotel. Ok, so it was on a deal but we still paid something for it.

We just can’t keep doing this. When is this run of bad luck going to end? We can’t afford this constant rapid flow of money leaving this house. It’s been a battle of struggling to take a step forward but sliding back half a dozen. Uphill on ice.

Why is everything going wrong?

When will it end?

  1. That is awful! Hang in there. We will add you and your family to our prayer list. I especially hope that you can get away on that trip. Hang in there!

  2. This has gone on too long – it's time for it to stop! At this rate, everything that CAN go wrong WILL have done – darned Murphy!!
