Just when you thought everything was fine...

Greg James | 17:51 UK time, Tuesday, 2 December 2008

I thought everything in my new flat was sorted.  That was until I had a shower earlier this afternoon and the pump blew up.  The water stopped very suddenly and there I was standing like a div with shampoo in my hair.  No hot water, no cold water.  Nothing.  I literally didn't know what to do.  Picture these images of what happened next.  I decided to rub the suds off my head with a towel, put some clothes on and went to the shops and bought some bottled water like your mum might do if you're on holiday in somewhere where she doesn't like you drinking the 'foreign water'.  I then rinsed my head over the bath with the bottled water.  One can only imagine what that looked like.  A half asleep mess bent over the bath (ooo matron) spilling water everywhere.  Big idiot.  

Anyway, the landlord has had to come round again to fix it so hopefully it'll be fixed asap.  If not, I'll be smelling like a bin bag for the rest of the week which is not great considering it's the Radio 1 Christmas Party tomorrow night.  'Hi Fearne, ignore that smell, can I buy you a drink?'  Not that I'm trying to crack on to Fearne, but you know what I mean.
