The old swing-o-meter of patience under control is swinging dangerously towards the nuclear stratospheric blasting …….
The long-awaited, much-planned, excitedly-saved for trip to London has a Poe-like axe pendulum or possibly the sword of Damaclese hanging over it ….. there is a forty-eight hour strike planned by the RMT due that day. I have telephoned to see what my position is and as yet the strike is not comfirmed-confirmded it is only probably-confirmed, until it is confirmed-confirmed then I cannot be refunded or have my travel re-arranged. Travel aint all that easy for me, not only do I have to book ages in advance, I also have to book the wheelchair assistance and the wheelchair space. Also, on manic days, ‘stuff’ gets dumped in the wheelhair space and thanks to recent test cases, I nor the train peeps can make people shift their crap off of my seat as it were. I have before now been abandoned beside the toilet door [delightful].
My internet connection keeps going ‘poof’. The only thing that has changed in the last six months since switching to Sky, is the date. Yet regularly my connection will sudenly drop and will return between seconds and hours later. I have turned everything off, reconnected everything and tried again, no change. I have replaced the filter box widget that is supposed to make a difference, it didn’t.
The blog has been spam attacked. I reported the user, by hitting the ‘inappropriate’ button and also sending an email to customer support [ha!] of course it will not make the slightest bit of difference.
The slugs are invading. Like the annual Mods weekend and the Rockers convention, come the end of May trails appear around the washing machine as the slugs pop into my kitchen. It started when I had my backdoor replaced. Annoyingly we cannot see where they are getting in, possibly through the door seals. They wander half way down the kitchen and wander back again. What attracts them??
What else, what else … the weather, we are approaching June and the weather has arrived in April.
Oh well ….. another coffee I think.
