Excitement !!!!!


   An interesting day yesterday. Work was as usual, just work. But as I drove into the village, I was amazed at the size of police presence. To be honest, seeing two police officers in the same street is something special, but there was about six or seven of them wandering around. It then clicked !!! The post office has been hit again. That is the third time in two years. Two youths armed with a crowbar !! I’m not sure if they got anything this time though. I don’t mean to be sexist about this, but the place is run by two women. One in her late fifties, and the other in her late forties. It must look like an easy target.

   All the new doors have been hung. Mrs H is going oil them with linseed oil, to get a decent colour, and then we shall apply a silk varnish. Should look great.

   Time to go now. Youngest has gone to his bed (finally). He awoke at around 03:30 this morning, and of course so were we. He is still chattering away to himself, but I think both me and Mrs H will soon be asleep.

It’s Saturday…or did you guess ?


The long awaited phone adaptor arrived this morning. It was in a padded envelope, about the size of a postcard with the thickness of a pen. As was proven today, it went through the letterbox without any problems. So why was it returned to the Post Office? I phoned to complain yesterday, and was told that ‘it will be investigated and I’ll get back to you’. I will not hold my breath.

Latest email from the Money Saving Expert, had links to free music downloads. Two whole albums of mp3’s. One by Marillion – Crash Course and a second by Hugh Cornwell (ex stranglers) called Hooverdam. Both sound very good from the little I’ve heard. The Marillion one was downloaded from the ‘iLike’ website.

Looks like my latest following on Twitter, “@wossy “is the genuine article. He Tweeted yesterday about his son having lots of friends round causing havoc, and then he mentioned it on the radio today.
