Full pic: My internet issues got sorted.  Until it wasn't.  Then it was.  Then it wasn't.  Seems to be fine now but, of course, it cut out when I was watching the Stanley Odd livestream.  Right at the beginning of my favourite song of theirs. I mistimed going for a swim today and ended up…

    I'm having internet issues.  For the past 5 days, my internet has been cutting out completely.  I phoned my ISP and they confirmed that it's an external line problem, passed it on to BT Openreach and it should be sorted in 4-5 days. Still annoying when it kept cutting out during a Dropkick Murphy...

  • There are no words to express exactly how much I loathe my Prime Minister
    April 26, 2021
    Warning: political rant. There's a fair bit of sleeze surrounding the current Government and the PM, but this one starts with James Dyson. He decided he wanted to design and build ventilators for the NHS. He didn't however, want to pay taxes for some of the workers who would actually be doing thi...

    The title is a quote from the song Love and Death and an American Guitar by Jim Steinman. I'm a fan of his. Of course I am, none of you should be surprised to hear that. I was introduced to him, as with most folk I expect, through Bat Out of Hell. One day, I…

    Full pic: I finally watched Hamilton on Disney+ last night.  It's really, really good, I just wish I could see it live on stage. That was after I tried to watch La La Land.  I gave up after 45 minutes, or about 7 meet cutes, when I realised I was enjoying doing the backstitch on…

    I've discovered that I'm the last in my immediate family to be vaccinated.  Which, I was expecting and am fine with.  It's rumoured that they're opening up vaccines to those over 45 tomorrow, so my prediction to my mum that I'll have at least one shot by my brothers birthday next month seems to b...

    Next Monday, I'll be able to go for a swim and get my hair cut.  I won't, I'll be waiting for the weekend, but still.  I could. I've also just found out that the shop downstairs has been paying my electricity bill for a while.  Course, I found this out because they were threatening to cut…

    Snood.  The word you're looking for is snood. Had my eye test yesterday.  My prescription hasn't changed enough for me to need new glasses.  I just need to remember to wear the ones I have as much as I should. Finished making a bookmark this week: Well, I say finished.  I finished the design, I'v...

    I'm rewatching Party Down.  Hence the title.  Well, I'm currently watching Hidden Figures. I wanted to put the patch I told you about in my last entry on the back of my denim jacket, but I can't sew.  So... I also went out for my walk for the project today.  Here's the picture I took…
