Well, in testament to Ireland's new professional image, our pump was completely replaced within 36 hours of it exploding. Pretty neat, eh? And they say there's a recession on. And so, the showers run on time and the toilets fill in seconds.
I won a table from Amnesty International. In a draw. That's one of those things where you feel guilty about claiming your prize - like when you win money on charity scratchcards. I was only entering - and only once - in order to show support for Amnesty. Now I'm costing them something. What a dilemma. But it is a nice table.
