"Oh, By The Way, There's A Mystery Switch In My Room..."

So, after almost two weeks of not having a working TV, we now have one, complete with working digibox thing. Apparently, the mystery switch under my bed that I hadn't told anyone about was the switch to turn on the ariel... I was extremely popular with Jayne once she realised we could have been watching TV since we moved in... Our landlord came around the other night to go through some things and help us get the washing machine working - we'd filled it with clothes and washing powder a few days before, only to realise that it was a pile of crap that didn't work. There didn't seem to be any water going in and all it did was spin, occasionally making a noise that probaby shouldn't have been coming out of a home appliance. After sitting motionless and watching it for quarter of an hour, we decided to go to the library and find some help, alas to no avail. In the end we decided to just take the clothes out (after waiting forever for the door lock light to turn off) and leave it for the landlord. He switched the water switch at the back and now it is fully functioning, an exciting prospect in our dull lives. However, it could be slightly awkward the next time he comes around as Jayne wasted no time describing how fit he looks with his beard (which he really does) and then said, "I can't believe he's married!" before we realised he was actually still stood in the hallway putting on his shoes... We should totally write in to the Cringe! page of Mizz... 

Since getting the TV to work (yesterday), all motivation to do anything else has completely disappeared. Jayne decided that I had hit a new low after realising I hadn't moved since Jeremy Kyle had started in the morning and had sat there to watch Ricki Lake, Murder She Wrote, Monk (a "crime drama" apparently), and Countdown.  Things are not looking good for my new Doing-More-Work frame of mind...
