We started the day with a bacon sandwich and coffee – perfect!
We then caught up with episode two of the excellent Edge of Darkness DVD. It’s amazing how well the plot has stood up to the passage of time. So much stuff from TV in the 80s looks horribly dated crap when watching it in 2009. If you like eco-political thrillers, then get this DVD – you won’t be disappointed!
Ann then got on with a bit of baking whilst I gave the car a really good clean. I can’t remember the last time I washed it – not because it hasn’t been washed, but because I’ve been using the 50-strong Polish car cleaning team down the road! All for a fiver!!!
We then reviewed Ann’s redundancy paperwork and generated a some queries for her boss next week (lucky boss!). Ann then finished off her CV after speaking to Sam.
In the afternoon, Ann tackled the ironing whilst watching The Lost Prince by Steven Poliakoff on DVD. I popped round to Paul and Karen’s to sort out why their copy of Microsoft Money wasn’t remembering any entries entered after August last year – strange!! I think it has something to do with the backup strategy that I put on their PC. I think the backup is ‘restoring itself’ and over-writing the main file. I’ve switched off the timed-backup, so we’ll know by tomorrow evening when the timed back-up is due to run. We can then check to see if Money is showing the revised data entries we put in today.
Ann went for a walk with Jo around 4.30 whilst I caught up with my reading.
…a busy, but rewarding day…
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
