Bluebell came this morning for us to go shopping . As she came through the door , Hi , are you alright ? well yes and no I replied . Whats wrong now, she ask .
The thread broke on the overlocker and I cannot find 1 hook that the cotton should go through . Tut tut and more tutting , let me look sez she with all the confidence of a solver of life's problems . This is a new machine so we are both on unfamiliar terrortory . I have had an overlock machine previously but this one is a super duper . Bluebell tilted the specs on her nose and peered inside with all the confidence that the problem would be solved in the blink of an eye .
Then what does this do and how does that work , what is the number 1 bit .
after a short time , no joy . In the words of the song , things were getting nowhere , so we put plan B into action . Phoned Steve our machine man . We worship the ground he walks on . I told him the problem , and, can we come and see you . when sez he , today said I , what time sez he , we will be leaving home in 10 minutes I told him .
He takes the machine out of the box , shows us where the missing link is , threads it up and bingo . Sorted in seconds . thats why we worship the ground he walks on .
