    As I took four builders bags of garden waste to the tip yesterday and used up one of my six yearly allowances, I will probably be joining them in the near future.

    It is endemic. Doing deliveries this morning and there are several heaps of stuff dumped at the side of the dual carriageway. Plus the usual plastic shit that has "accidentally" blown out the back of the pick-up.
    We give 350m a week to the EU. Let's give it to Dido Harding instead.

    We needed to get an external doorframe replaced and it needed to be custom made as doorway is non standard. Wednesday it arrived old frame taken out new one fitted and door rehung. However the fitter ran out of time and could not come back until tomorrow to finish the job. Today and tonight are not a good time to have a storm come through when there is a half inch gap around the outside of the frame! it is fecking draughty..............

    I think that's piss poor. Recently had backdoor fitted. It took half a day but about 15mins to squirt in the polystyrene foam and then they left it sealed and came back two days later to finish off cosmetics. Bet the fitter had run out of the foam sealant!
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    Apple

    SWMBO now has an iphone.....FFFFFFFFFFFFS I just knew this was a bad idea.

    Madam cannot receive texts from me. Though she can send texts to me. Other messaging systems work OK. New SIM card en route from Virgin just in case. We have been through all the help facilities from Apple, VM, interweb etc. So far I have tried Old Speckled Hen, gin, and madam is trying prosecco to improve the connection.

    Nectar are pants at changing passwords. They issue emails with a ten minute time limit that take twenty minutes to arrive FFS, so totally useless.

    SWMBO uses books and paper to keep track of passwords, and now we discover that not all the books are up to date. Oh what joy.

    FFS quite a lot of stress moving from Samsung to the Devil Incarnate* and we still cannot access Nectar points**.

    For some reason my phone seems to be receiving up to three days text messages all at one go when I turn it on in the morning. Why they are not coming through before that, who knows.

    It is trying to get you to leave it on 24/7 so you can wake up at 03.21 and check it like young people do.

    Mine is on 7/24 but mutes overnight.

    Too many years in the electronics business has taught me that power cycling is when things break.

    Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.
