Three Things and the Latest Podcast

I wonder if there’s any reasoning to the fact that things seem to happen in threes?

Last weekend, the microwave packed up … no great sweat, it was twenty years old, if it was a day. Then, the car started running rough … again, no drama, as it’s still under the manufacturer’s guarantee. The worst part was waiting for the third event to happen. Would it be something vital? Was it going to cost? Finally, yesterday, the lawnmower started giving off gouts of smoke before it stopped short, never to go again, as the song goes.

Don’t worry, I said; it’s still under guarantee … I think! Wouldn’t you know it, the guarantee ran out last month! Oh, well!

  3. Hi, Selma!

    At the moment, I can count the hits on my podcasts without taking my shoes off, but they are gaining a small but faithful following, although the BBC aren’t going to sign me up any time soon.

    But, thanks for your comments!
