Nearly there and other things …


It's painting time. Eldest son came around to do the ceiling as Mrs H thought I would struggle. I'm not sure if she thought I was too short or too old. He is about 5' 7" and I'm 5' 4". I don't think it was a height issue. There was huge amount to cover, but … Continue reading Nearly there and other things …

Wasn’t expecting that …


I got a text message from my boss, who is in Mexico at the moment for their annual holiday. The text said that she had received a ‘picture message’ from me, but could not open it. I quickly checked my phone, but I hadn’t sent a picture message to anyone, which I explained. It was … Continue reading Wasn’t expecting that …

Birthday and other things …


I went on my old chat site Monday night. It’s a site I used to use a lot a few years ago. It was before Facebook became really popular and I used to chat most nights. But as with all things, it changed, became a bit of a hunting ground for not so nice persons … Continue reading Birthday and other things …

A good day ….


   Surprisingly, today turned out quite well. Thought we may have problems, when R*** woke up at half past three, but after getting him a drink, he settled back to sleep around quarter past four. For the majority of the day, he has been fine. The odd glitch, here and there, but nothing serious. A … Continue reading A good day ….

Today just happened


   Quite an uninteresting day today. A fall out from a disagreement, that I was expecting did not happen, which was unusual. I was just about ready for a fight. Never mind, it is bound to happen sooner or later. The problem is, that I’ve been sat opposite the same person now, for nearly four … Continue reading Today just happened

Late nights and early mornings ……


   These late night and early mornings are beginning to disagree with me somewhat. In my youth (if I can remember that far back) I would have thought nothing of getting to bed at 12:30 and up again at 06:30. Now it is a little different. I suppose one late night that a week is … Continue reading Late nights and early mornings ……

TGIF…..


   I’m glad that week is over. Work wise it’s been quite a successful week. All my PDA’s came back from repair, although one has to go back. That was hard work. They don’t realise that I’ve working with the kit for 5 years, so I know when a problem is real. Hardest is part, … Continue reading TGIF…..

A longish day


Well I was tired, before I started today. Yesterdays late night seemed to do for me a little. Work went okay. The usual minor irritations caused by people who just rush things, without checking all the facts. Eldest is at a gig in York tonight. A lot of his drama friends have gone, because R**** … Continue reading A longish day

Two more days to go…….


That’s right. Only two more days, then I get a week annual leave. To be honest, I think I need it. It has been a long July, and August looks like it could be the same. The eldest lad phoned at lunchtime, to say he was not feeling so good. Sounds like he has had … Continue reading Two more days to go…….

…. and it is still only Thursday


This week seems to be dragging on somewhat. As I expected, the software house rang me at twenty past four … “hello … I finish around four pm as I start around seven thirty am”. Yet again W**l came up with a theory, that I instantly demolished. Does this guy not have any experts that … Continue reading …. and it is still only Thursday

Only a week and one day ….


The above refers to a celebration, of which I will speak no further. Them that know, know! So that's Sunday over. The quick walk to the pub was a none starter, as expected. In fact, it may have been that thought that set the youngest off last night. Just before midnight, and he’s getting worked … Continue reading Only a week and one day ….

A bit of a change


It has been a reasonable day today, after the youngest sons ‘episode’ this morning. He had wanted some movie clips downloading last night, and of course, it was too late when I got in. So working on my theory, that he wakes up with 'unfinished business’, that resulted in the episode. I did the clips … Continue reading A bit of a change

Another day older and deeper in ………


I’ve had a good birthday. There were lots of nice presents and cards, and a surprising number of birthday messages on facebook. It’s really strange how I have taken to this ‘social networking’. Two years ago, I would not have touched any of this with a barge pole. Now look at me …… I’m on … Continue reading Another day older and deeper in ………

A little bit of this ….. a little bit of that …..


Saturday went well. Potted on some of my seedlings. They are looking quite good, fingers (and everything else) crossed, they will survive the holiday. No luck with the Lottery again. There should be a prize for nearly numbers. You know, where you nearly get the right numbers. Maybe get you money back if 4 or … Continue reading A little bit of this ….. a little bit of that …..

Why……


You know, sometimes, not often, but occasionally, I get to thinking ‘Why do I bother with it’. Not life you understand, but this ‘social networking’ I have gotten into. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good laugh, and I do enjoy the ‘chatting’ and the silly games, but … what is the point? There are … Continue reading Why……
