It's nothing serious. Certainly nothing to get into a twist about. It seems that I have a few things to write/promote and to sort out at the moment and I simply don't know where to start.
Firstly my built in Neff oven started to play up. By that, I mean it suddenly decided that it had had enough and refused to rise to the correct temperature any more . No matter what I set it at, it wouldn't rise above 150c. Now, I agree that's fine if I needed to cook a stew or something similar on a low temp for a few hours. But it was no good at all if I wanted a higher temperature, which is often the case. Therefore after several attempts at fiddling around with the dial, I finally got the message that I needed to start looking for a new oven.
I have to say that our old oven has served us well for very nearly twenty years. I have no idea how long ovens/cooker last as my husband and I usually moved house every five years. (I am to blame here; it was a hobby of mine) But back in the old days, it was easier than it is now. Houses in the London area sold a lot quicker than they do in the current market.
Anyway, getting back to the oven situation, on Tuesday I made the decision to pop into a local shop to buy a brand new oven. I should add that our hob is separate and was working fine. Therefore, having chosen an oven similar to what I had, (it made sense as it would fit into the slot without any problems) only a more modern version, I am happy to say that it arrived today and is now installed and ready to use. The only problem is, it looks so lovely and clean, I don't feel the urge to use it!!!
