We had a friend we met in Canada, Blog readers may remember Gabe the 'old' French Canadian we met wile we were in Canada, he is over on holiday for 6 weeks. He will be in his element as he is studying like mad to learn Chinese and he is good, makes me feel inadequate! (at Chinese anyway).
Also had a hot water pipe leak again, this time it was the hot link to the kitchen sink, another of those pesky flexible pipes, I must have replaced nearly a dozen of them since I've been here. This one I couldn't actually replace as one end is fixed to the tap and doesn't screw off so I had to think of something else to do with it. I eventually (after turning off the hot water of course) made up some Araldite type glue and spread it all around the pipe over the small hole and about 1 inch or so above and below all round the pipe, Iet that dry, It only took 2 hours, and then applied another coating over that one, the next morning when it was all dry I added some of the plastic electrical tape round it and so far it is holding well. I think the Araldite is stronger than the original pipe anyway.
We wait till tomorrow to see if our little repair man comes through with the goods and we have a Tele again.
