… when there is no space in the fridge.
It’s BLOODY COLD in the apartment at the moment.
My friend, Mind the Gap (go over there and hassle her to tell you this story first hand) was freeeeezing in her apartment the other day. So she went to her real estate agent and asked them why the city put the heating on so low this winter.
“It’s because Ukraine hasn’t paid the gas bill,” said the agent. “The government owes Russia money. It’s the old government’s* fault,” she said.
So, next time we run out of fridge space, it may coincide with the gas getting turned off in Ukraine. Could be handy if I choose to do a big shop that week.
* While I was away, the government, headed up by Yulia Tymoshenko, was sacked by the President, Viktor Yushchenko. This is the second government he’s sacked since we’ve been in Ukraine.
