Finger on the pulse

You remember that broken hoover? the one that prevented me cleaning last week? Well, at the weekend I said to Husband, 'Can you fix my hoover, please?'
'What's the matter with it?'
'It just stopped.'

So he plugged it in and switched it on and, yes, it started straightaway. 'How did you do that?' I asked.
'I just switched it on and it started.'

For the last two days I've been grumbling at my hair straighteners because they wouldn't work. Today I discovered they have an On/Off switch.

I am just not made for this technological world.

You make me laugh! How many times has something like that happened to me? Especially when the car stops and won't go and I have to call the automobile association and they come and guess what? It starts! Duh!

Oooops! And did you know that both kettles and toasters work a lot better when you switch them on? When not switched on, my kettle drives me mad by taking so long to boil, and the thingy (technical term) on the toaster that you press down to start it WON'T STAY DOWN!

Sometimes vacuum cleaners (hoovers to you) will overheat. After they've cooled down they will restart. But it's like taking the car to the mechanic to check out the noise that never sounds when youa re at the mechanic's.
