The Day My Pad Went Mad

Last night, as I was boiling some sweet potatoes and listening to Led Zeppelin IV, my dish washer - which has been on the blink for months - suddenly started working again. I was bewildered. I don't even remember switching it on. Perhaps I rubbed up against it while gyrating to Rock and Roll or Black Dog. I will get some tablets on the way home and cross my fingers that last night's come back wasn't temporary.

Then when I woke up this morning I found that the boiler had been on all night and wouldn't switch off from the control in the airing cupboard. I called British Gas. They can't come until Monday but they have told me how to attempt to switch off the device itself directly.

Oh, and Man v. Food's Adam Richman has been vegan for three months.
