And it just gets worse.
Turned on in my apartment were the living room light and the fridge. I put on an egg to boil. In the time it took to boil an egg the fuse tripped three times. I can use the low power appliances like lights or computer but anything that draws any higher power - cooker, kettle, water heater, iron etc blows the fuse in minutes. This can't be right. My administrator's response was "Well, you had the chance to move."
Indeed I did, to an apartment so dark and dingy that a mole wouldn't have wanted to live there.
I am promised that an electrician will come tomorrow. Let's hope so.
