The garden is now looking cool, with all the weeds and the rubbish out of the way. We've had a problem lately with kids being in the front garden and chucking rubbish in our glass only recycling box. I've been very cunning and turned it upside down, that'll fox 'em.
Now I'm off to get a nice cold glass of cider before I melt away......

Having got the wap connection set up on the new mobiles yesterday, I've wasted no time in downloading Rayman Golf! I've only had time to play a couple of practice holes, but from what I've seen so far I'm impressed. It's easy to play (not so easy to master) and the graphics are ace for a little java game. Waiting around in the Chinese takeaway will never be the same. I'll wait and see what appears on the phone bill before I try downloading any more.

Today is going well for a change, working in IT and getting the problems that no-one else can solve, I can spend days getting to the bottom of some of these queries. Long gone are the days when you could ask questions like "have you switched the printer on" or "is the mouse plugged in". Everyone's a bit more computer literate these days and that presents it's own problems. Take the meddler, for instance, someone who has a go at fixing something and ends up making it considerably less fixed than it was in the first place. Then of course when they do finally admit defeat and call for help, they deny that they ever touched anything just to make it more of a challenge.

So, with that off the schedule for today, it leaves me free to do absolultley nothing which is what Sundays were made for.
I've still got some beer left from last night, only four bottles but they are big ones. I went for the offer at the local supermarket yesterday, buy three bottles for four pounds, so I just picked the six of the big 750ml bottles of Castle Lager. Looks like I'll be performing my special vanishing beer trick again later on today.

It's Friday, it's five to five, it's Crackerjack! It's not really, well it is Friday. Back in my school days, Crackerjack always meant it was Friday tea time and no more school for a couple of days. It also meant trying to hold on to a whole load of cabbages, honestly! More recently Cadbury used the Friday feeling message in their advertising with the slogan 'Thank Crunchie it's Friday'. Before Debbie moved over here, we used to take it in turns to travel over the Pennines on a Friday night to see each other over the weekend and we always referred to Fridays as Crunchie Day and have done ever since. The odd thing is that neither of us is all that keen on chocolate, appart from the film starring Johnny Depp.

We need a bluetooth adapter now for the PC, but not at the prices they were asking at the mobile phone shop, we'll shop around for somewhere cheaper.
Last year, when we got the old phones, we weren't that bothered about taking photos with a phone, we'd just use the digital camera, but now we can we wouldn't be without it.
It's cool for showing friends and family pictures of Lucy and Harvey, instead of getting a creased photo out of your purse or wallet, you can show them whole selection on your phone and really bore them silly. It will also be good for taking a picture of 'the moment', when something interesting happens and naturally, you haven't got the camera with you.
There is a real danger of me nodding off now, sitting here poised with the phone waiting for something interesting to happen.

I chose Sheffield Airport as the location being the nearest airport to us, however, I noticed that there weren't that many updates, well none to be honest. I think it's because the bloke on top of a step ladder, sorry, in the watch tower next to the field, sorry, runway, hasn't got time for the updates.
So, I've changed it to Leeds Bradford Airport which is the second closest airport to us and that seems to have done the trick.
Hopefully in a few months time, it'll be showing snow on there

I thought about it again after last night's meeting and if I were ever to do something like this, it would probably read like a script for a Carry On Film.

I've called O2 today to cancel and they suggested getting a PAC code so we could keep the same numbers and they explained that the current contract would end as soon as we with started with T-Mobile. Just the ticket I thought, where's the catch........ the phones are down at the department that issues PAC codes so I've got to call back in an hour. Not a very good advert for a phone company.

Here's a quick recap of the last thirty-four years.........
I was born and bread in Yorkshire, near an old mining town made famous in a Monty Python sketch. I left home at the tender age of twenty-nine to share a flat with a mad South African gent in town. He was seduced by the bright lights of the big city, so unable to afford to keep the flat on my own, I left for a doomed relationship before coming back home to my roots. A few weeks after vowing never to get involved in a relationship again, Snowman met Buttercup through Feesch and in less than six months time I'll be getting married to the love of my life :-)
That's the introduction done and now I've forgotten what I was going to write about. It'll come back to me later, this is always happening, I've got a memory like fish with no brain, I'll have to go and get one of those electronic voice recorders so I can make notes to remind me what I was thinking about.
