I am typing this whilst listening to the frantic pounding of the keyboard and the rattle of the mint tin as The Husband frantically consults with Prof Google trying to find a solution to the non-working coffee machine.
This is afterI had suggested that he shut the machine off and leave it alone for a while. He continued to press the button, causing the machine to overheat and vapour lock.
The Husband informs me that Prof Google has offered up the following solution; advising you to shut off the machine and leave it alone for a while. When I mentioned to The Husband that this is what I said to do, I received a thump on the arm and was told "you've done two things wrong - first off you were right and secondly, you told me you were right".
