A good start ….


   The borders in the living room came off a treat. It lImage019ooks like the ones in the dining room will be the same. We/I think that I will have to decorate the living room  first, before I start on the dining room. The hardest part, I suppose, will be moving the large furniture. That is the sideboard and drinks cabinet. Both are full and very heavy. Fun times ahead !!

   I’m not too keen on the new facebook setup. The status update seem to be all over the place. The best idea would be to invite a number of people to test out the new ideas, then implement them, with the option of going back to the old version.

   Still having a few problems with the updated phone. The email seems to keep disconnecting. I will try and look on the forums tomorrow. There may be a setting that needs to be altered. I have also been having a bit of trouble with the bluetooth. I keep getting asked for authorisation, although I may have sorted that one, just now. I cannot seem to send files to the PC at the moment. The phone says they have been sent, but I have no idea as to where they are ending up. Certainly not in the place they went to before.

Sorted .. I think


   I updated my phone yesterday !!!!! Well at least that is what I intended to do !! It did not go quite to plan. I misread what I was updating. I suppose, misread is not quite correct. To be more precise, I did not read what I was updating. As a consequence, I did not create a back-up. So after the update, I was left with a phone that was more or less in factory state. All the personalisation’s gone !!! What a tw*t !!!! Image018I have now got it back to a reasonable state, but am still having problems with the email client.

   I’m starting the big decorating job tomorrow.   Living room and dining room. I think it is going to take a week or two to complete. I’m hoping, that the borders in this room will not be as hard to get off as the ones in the kitchen.

OMG !!!! I have a full week to do !


   Managed to finally get the borders of the kitchen wall. Four hours of scraping, wetting and four letter expletives later, and the wall is now good enough to start the proper prep. Did I mention that Mrs H wants all the rooms doing ???? I don’t think she means the youngest lads bedroom (at least I hope she doesn’t), but all the rest of the rooms to do have at least one border. I know what you’re thinking, but when we (I) put the borders up, they were the height of fashion, and they do help create a straight line where the wall meets the roof. Oh yes, we are painting the kitchen.

   It will seem strange, working a full week.  Some departments work a flexi-time system, whereby you can have a day off every week, providing you have the time up. Well I would not get one every week, but I reckon I might make one every two weeks. Saying that though, last year I only managed to have one and a half days in the whole year !
