Let’s see, what exciting things have I been doing?
Well, for a start, after nattering with the group of 3rd year undergrads I’ve got to know quite well at happy hour on Friday, I got invited to a slap up meal with them at one of their rooms. It was just like being a student again! 🙂
I finally got home at about 1am and went to bed. I could have done with an early night on Friday as i’d stayed up a bit late the night before getting my PC up and running again after it’s regrade to XP.
Saturday morning came and went. Let’s say that Saturday was a bit of a blur due to sleep deprivation. I did manage to get the main shopping done, however. Actually, that’s about all I got done other than watch the grand prix qualifying.
Yesterday, I managed to get the meadow in the back garden mown, lots of washing done and watch the grand prix, despite having the worst sinus headache I’ve had in a long while.
Today, I’ve managed to get out to do the supplimentry shopping. Brake blocks for the bike from Halfords and various items from B&Q to flush out the radiators next weekend when my parents come up country to visit. I’ve now replaced the brake blocks.
I’ve discovered that I have ants which have infested part of the house wall and that how they’ve managed to do this is to burrow into the very poor mortar. It looks like a lot of the mortar holding my house together is very poorly made and is crumbling badly.. and my house is less than 7 years old! Methinks I might have to get a report done and try to get the NHBC to fix it. Somehow I don’t think I’ll have much luck with that and will just have to get it repointed myself.
Anyway, I shall sign off for tonight, fix some food and get ready for work again in the morning.
