Imagine our surprise on Thursday night when the water just wouldn't go down the plug hole and started to come back up.
Friday morning I headed out on the hunt for a plunger to see if that would help us - it's amazing how many different styles there are available. I opted for this snazzy little number, but alas it didn't really help much and my plumbing skills failed me.
Luckily our landlord popped round later with a bottle of Drano to unblock the pipes, which worked a treat! So panic over, but it did highlight to us the teething problems we're having with the simplest things settling in here in L.A. The funny thing is that in our London flat we had a waste disposal, but we never used it, so we're not exactly novices with this sort of thing.
Anyway, Friday night we headed out to try another local restaurant in West Hollywood, this time Taste on Melrose Avenue and shock, horror, we even walked there!
Anyway, we're off on an adventure today as we've been invited to a BBQ in Alta Loma, which is about 52 miles away. Lucky for Charlie I'm not going to be driving there, although my shiny new car is parked downstairs in the garage and I do plan to go for a little spin in it this morning, so watch out L.A., Jason is finally behind the wheel, God save us all....
