Yesterday one of my radiators just stopped working. Like literally went kaput as I stood against it - it was freezing yesterday, and I had the heating up high, and was having a whale of a time leaning up against the rad while people watching out the window. What a great Sunday lol!
So I figured first thing to do would be try bleeding the radiator. I searched high and low for something to do it with. I was thinking maybe an allen key, or better even a pliers. Anyway (a) I don't possess any of these anymore - I really need to work on getting a basic tool kit together and (b) in my heart I knew I needed the proper utensil for it (a proper radiator key)
This little bad boy cost me the princely sum of €2.50 in a dodgy little huckster type hardware shop in Talbot Street. To be fair in larger shops they wouldn't stock this type of thing so Talbot Street rocks for these kind of things.
As I walked to the hardware shop I saw this pub which gave me a good laugh.
It's a long story, I won't go into the details but I was in this pub (it's verrrrry touristy) for drinks quite recently and had a really great night!
It still makes me laugh however, thinking of how twee and touristy it is - and let's not forget - it'sTalbot Street!!!! Dodgy!!!
Anyway, I digress, The good news is that my heating is back working after bleeding the rad. Good because it's cold at the moment. And in other good news tomorrow I get to defrost my freezer with a hairdryer. The good times just keep on coming!
