In response to my post about my leaky water filter (which is now fixed) – My friend and fellow blogger – who’s taking a break from blogging, and has been so kind in helping me, in my comments section, left me this comment today :
On a somewhat related note, when we first move into our house we started receiving calls all day from a waterproofing company who just would not take no for an answer. My wife, who worked night shift, got tired of the calls waking her up as she tried to sleep during the daytime.
Next time they called and asked if we had a problem with water leaking in the basement she responded, “Yes, we have a terrible problem. When it rains the water comes in and starts filling up the basement, but before it can get more than two feet deep it starts leaking out. Can they come out immediately and stop it? We just can’t get it deep enough to do any serious swimming.”
They never called back, but for a couple weeks afterwards she got nervous whenever someone came to the house, assured it was going to be the men in white coats coming to take her away.

As I said they he is taking a break from blogging, so please bear that in mind if visiting his blog (I’ve linked to, because I always cite sources with links if possible).
And, the “And” part :
I’ve been slowly adding the flags of the countries of my commenters on my sidebar (as I’m proud of my own flag, I assume others are too). Just added Spain, Australia, Canada and Denmark. If I missed anyone please leave a comment which flag you want to see and I’ll add it for you.

No need to tell me the right answer, I’ve heard it on TV relating to UK 5G deal with Huawei.
But when I first saw the name on a phone in the phone shop … well … I tried to guess :
“Who are we”
“Who a wee”
And then I’m joking with a friend, and I’m like
“Who the hell are we ?”
(It’s funnier if you try to pronounce it in English out loud)
Kind of ironic though, with the controversy surrounding the company, and then the UK government striking a deal with them, whilst the rest of the world don’t want to touch them with a barge pole.
Comments invited 🙂

I’ve been using Transferwise for about three years now. I don’t recommend things I’ve never used to others, otherwise I’d have talked about Transferwise on my blog before. I’ve made maybe 70 transfers with them by now, each of which went flawlessly. It’s a service I use regularly, and is convenient and efficient for helping manage my money, and saves me money.
