Well, the end of yet another week… and Saturday can be confined to the dustbin… but it hasn’t been an unproductive day. In fact it’s been a busy day, although not without it’s downside.
It all started with a ringing door bell… yup I had a hearty sleep of 10 & half hours… and boy did it feel good. I can see the next sleep being of similar proportion. I’m a tired wee boy these days. But back to the bell… instead of being the builders (here to repair a dodgy balcony roof) it was in fact the postie… who left me one of those notes I hate. Special Delivery item, requiring signature… meaning I’ll have to go to the Sorting Office in the next week… i.e. next Saturday morning… and if I don’t go… well my post will be returned to sender. Commence Rant. The post office do a great job, however, their collection service stinks. I work 0900 to 1700… infact I actually work 0800 to 1700… so if their office only opens from 0800 to 1300 during the week, when am I supposed to collect my post?!?! I basically have next Saturday morning to collect my post… and if I was away on that day?! Well post would be gone. It’s a disgrace… do these companies not realise that PEOPLE WORK?!
Here endeth the rant.
Anyways, I got the car washed (and did some essential food shopping whilst waiting) and then proceeded to brush the rust off & use some hamerite to cover over the damage. It might be that the rust causes JIL to fail the MOT (and if it does, I’ll be buying a new car). I sincerely hope that it doesn’t, but next weekend, I’ll either be a very happy chappy, or a very depressed new car owner.
Once I’d the car sorted & lunch consumed, I was off to East Grinstead to visit Mr Andrews (and wife) in the Queen Victoria Hosptial. As mentioned in yesterday’s entry, LA had bit of a firework accident… but his surgery seems to have gone well… and with a bit more time under the knife on Monday, it sounds like he’ll be fighting fit soon. Good to here & Lord willing he’ll be a repaired man soon. He has however, given up the fireworks… so I suppose lesson has been learnt (the hard way unfortunately).
After that, home & actually been spending some time googling people who I’ve not heard of in quite a while… and it appears that I’m the only geek as none of them appear online…
Anyways… another weekend is half way through. Take care & speak to you soon.
