Walk Like A Penguin
There was a heavy frost yesterday morning but it was a beautiful day, all blue skies and sparkling. This morning was very different, damp and misty when Paul set off with Rick for his early walk. Within minutes they were back, the footpaths were covered in black ice and Paul was struggling to stand upright. Apparently you should walk like a penguin on icy surfaces. Some people would say that I always walk like a penguin. Rick had to be content with a wander around the garden until the ice had melted later in the morning.
I stayed indoors and decided to christen the new bath. It was wonderful, luxuriating in the hot, bubbly water. But as I wallowed I noticed that the water level seemed to be going down. Surely not? I topped up with some more hot water and watched. Yup, very slowly the water was disappearing. The super duper modern pop-up plug was not working properly. It will have to be replaced. We never had this problem with the good old fashioned rubber plugs.
