One of those days….

16 Nov

I’m not sure you’ll remember but I posted at the beginning of this blog about the oven. The element had blown and I was attempting to clean it before replacing the element.

Well today the task was completed, i found a chemical cleaner ‘Easy Off’ the smell was noxious and the fumes unbelievable but it did the job! I now have an oven that looks like new (well almost).

We had to go and pick up the element today after waiting two weeks for it to come it….it’s almost 33 degrees (Celsius) here and out car has no air conditioning but I was determined to have that element if it killed me…and it damn near did I tell ya! We hoped in the car ready for a quick 25 minute trip to the shop…drove and drove then drove some more….after about 40 minutes we decided that we had missed the turn :(….so turned around, went back and would you believe we managed to miss the turn again on our return trip!!!! Finally found the place and paid $108.00 for an element that would have cost us 12.00 pounds in the UK. We did look at bringing one in but weren’t confident we could order the right one without seeing it. You have no idea how many different oven elements there are out there.

Anyway photo op coming up! Unfortunately I didn’t take a before photo but believe me this is an improvement.
