The cold has done some mischief to our plumbing here.
The same laundry room pipes as last year froze up first. Not great, but increasing the house temperature from 20 degrees to 28 degrees C and setting up some directed heaters will (I hope) eventually unthaw that. But then we made things worse.
I just got back from the dentist. Nearly two hours in the chair: in itself, that’s tiring. But the part that is bugging me at the moment is that the freezing is still fully active. My mouth feels like its stuffed with cotton or something. And of course you have to answer a bunch of questions while you are standing at the dentist. The best part was when my credit card was “declined”: Citibank likes to refuse approval on “unusual” charges periodically. Trying to talk through that situation is great fun when half your mouth is frozen.
