Tag Archives: Christmas Eve Dinner

Mid week menu – 24 to 26 October ’17

The chap came to look at the new fridge that doesn’t chill properly.He asked if it had power (yes) had we left the door open (no) was the thermostat properly set (yes). He then suggested that the factory may not have gassed it up properly (they had) or that the delivery men had knocked it causing a leak( they hadn’t). Next he attached a gizmo to the back and linked it to his phone to run a diagnostic check which told him that the compressor was faulty and needed replacing. Did he have the part on his van I asked……of course he didn’t. His miracle phone would order the part which, providing it was in stock, would be sent to us by courier, his office would be notified once it arrived here and an engineer would be booked to return and fit it. It will come as no surprise that we had to work all weekend without the use of our new fridge and of course we were fully booked too….fabulous!

Weekend menu – 6 & 7 October 2014

Apologies for the scaffolding out front as building repairs continue. The 200 year old bits are fine but typically the dodgy work done in the 70’s needs attention.          It was chilly again this morning. Maybe time to pack away the courtyard furniture and admit that autumn is here. By the way the Christmas menus are done and on our blog page and I saw selection boxes in Tesco this week!………Too soon?
