Another misty day. Misty Yorkshire. Is there a world beyond the farmers field. I’m not entirely sure.

I think the mist might be seeping into my mind as well.

Yesterday our telephone gave up the ghost. On a call and suddenly nothing. Well apart from a clicking noise from the handset combined with a slight whiff off internal components burning up. So a replacement phone arrived this morning. Two hours later I’m sat looking at another dead phone. I’ve put batteries in. Turned it on as per the instructions. The display is working but no ringing tone. Whatever I did. Nothing.

Here’s a free technical tip.

It does help if you remember to plug the phone into the wall socket first. For some unexplained reason when you do that suddenly the phone starts to work perfectly. Most bizarre that.

If that wasn’t bad enough I then went into the kitchen to make lunch. It’s not a great idea to put a microwave risotto packet into the microwave – without ripping the corner open first. Will be cleaning the end results up for weeks.

Definitely a misty head day….

  1. LOL!! I can’t recall what I exploded in a microwave… maybe an egg (in the shell)?? I haven’t had a micro in years.

    And is your phone a land line?? I can understand why you’d need one out in the country but I think I gave mine up around 2002!!

      1. I totally understand that!
        You should have seen my block after a power outage years ago. Only 1 cell tower worked, about half way down the block… everyone was standing in front of some guy’s house, trying to make calls!

  3. Brings bacj memories when my mum thought her twin tub stopped working.
    As she explained the issue, I noticed she hadn’t turned it on at the socket.
    So holding my smile, I said to her, have you turned it on? expecting her to check it all. But she didn’t and said yes, I have turned it on.
    So I then smiled and said, but yes, have you gone back to the basics, making my eyes divert to the socket as a hint, saying have you really turned it on?
    Mum was just going to say yes, but stopped and got the message. She could see she hadn’t and so we had a laugh.
    As long as you can have a laugh about it, that’s all that matters.

      1. Glad to hear you found it funny. I know I really wanted to crack up laughing from the start with my mum, but I kept a straight face and dragged it out a little. 😁

  4. Years ago I bought a new car. Got to the gas station and had to call back to the dealer and ask him how to re-start. He’d told me I needed to step on the brake but within 5 minutes I’d forgotten. I felt a real idiot.
