and the bletch.First the good
I finally gave in to MWNN's
suggestion to switch to Mozilla, both on the laptop and the PC. When I went online today to have the second lesson in Helen Steven's Introductory Masterclass
, instead of the real player window playing the lesson, (as it did under IE) it downloaded it to my PC. That means I can take the lessons with me to the boat if I want because they are now burned onto CD.The Bad
The washing machine broke down two weeks ago. I made an appointment for a man
to come and repair it last Friday. When he hadn't materialised by 2pm for a 'morning appointment', I phoned the company. They had no record of me or my appointment. I managed to get another firm to send someone out this morning. I now have a working machine again but my bank account is now £90 lighter.
I forgot to watch 'Deadwood' last night, which means I'm in for some late night viewing tonight and I really don't feel up to it.The bletch
I have seen the Sock Monster
and it's not pretty.. The reason why the washing machine was refusing to pump out was that there were two (non-matching, of course) socks (and a lot of other shredded ones) clogging up the filter that sits between the drum and the pump.
Add to that the fact that one glass of bubbly and a half pint of cider shandy at the weekend seem to have thrown me into a state of tharg with a touch of 'can't be bothered'
, and the bad and the bletch outweigh the good.
