Last night we lost all electric power except our lights. I went to bed worrying about it and we called the electrician this morning. He said it was the boiler or the pump.
We called the plumber and he said it was the fan in the boiler. He has taken it off to get a new one. I was going Christmas shopping but that looks a nono as the man who is fixing Ben’s rocking chair may bring it back today. Perhaps I’ll go, anyway, although it is raining and maybe we could do without a sausage ring and a meringue pudding.
Twas on a Monday morning the first man came to call-
We need the big chair fixing or through it Ben will fall!
Twas on Tuesday evening the heat began to go-
There’s something up electrically, but what , we do not know.
Twas on a Wednesday morning and, searching for the fault,
Off went computer, television, fridge – but all for nought.
So we called out the plumber and just hope it isn’t cold
Lets have it fixed for Christmas,’cos we are just too old
To huddle round the fire (It’s gas) and boil the water so-
We may be forced to go to bed, for warmth, of course, you know.
