Disaster again!!!

I hate heaters. Am never buying another second hand one ever. 😦 £300 in two years and they’re both done in….

Got a phone call of the other half today, the baby tank heater has malfunctioned. Raising the temperature from 12d to 29d… crap. 

Babies all sulking on the bottom. 

He turned the heater off opened up all the flaps. Babies are now swimming about. Temp down to 28d but going the steam off it is unreal.  

I am gutted. Going to have to pull it all off at the weekend and see why it’s gone kaput. 

Could be blanket weed all wrapped around the inside. Don’t know. 

At least they didn’t cook. Although pinked up and a little stressed. I am hoping they’ll recover quickly. 

Adding in some salt to help ease the stress. Last parasite check only a a few weeks ago so fingers all crossed. 

 Still not happy it is the second year running. Last year heater packed in and temp dropped from 20 to 10 in one night. 

Seneye isn’t plugged in due to no funds for the slides at present.  another sucky reason or I would have known something was wrong.

This has really been a rough week. With our producer for Best Friends being let down. My co-writer and I had to do a pretty quick re-write. Good job even though the time difference sucks my friend and I work well together. 

The car wouldn’t start on Monday leading to a mad rush. Battery had gone done. £50 for a new one. 

 

And my poor coach/editor E.J had a small accident and hurt her arm. 

 

Jeeze, this week has been a real nightmare. Hope tomorrow brings something nice for us all. 

 

Hopefully we can pull the baby tank apart and see if there is indeed something blocking the heater. Least I can get rid of some blanket weed and clean the tunnel. 

 

Fingers crossed tormorrow is easier than the rest of this week has been. Think we might as well eat out tonight 🙂 

 

Catch you soon.
