How's your day?

MargieH   stop having coffee, tried it once and tried tea and green tea , worst 30 mins of my life, black coffee to me is an essential to life, cigarettes were just  an additional bonus. Keeping busy I find I just don't think about or need the weed. Have I been that sad all my life.

All good days this week.

After returning from hols at the weekend the first 2 bags on the carousel were ours what are the odds of that happening?

 

Then on Tuesday we went to the Rod Stewart show at Motorpoint Nottingham, seated someway back on the floor section we were approached by an official who offered an upgrade FOC to seating 9 rows from the front.

 

To-day expecting the worst we went to KRCS on Lenton Lane who are authorised Apple device repairers, Barb's 4 year old phone had the battery replaced at a cost £45 and is now working perfectly. My 2 year old phone had a swollen battery which had distorted the screen I was told this would also cost £45 but in this case for the £45 I was given a new replacement. Might do the Lottery to-night.

The upgraded seats was brilliant luck Dave.  We were at the Arena on Tuesday too and I was rather disappointed with our seats which I’d booked online the day before general release about 6 months ago.  They cost twice as much as the seats we had for Rod 18 months ago and weren’t nearly as close to the stage.   Fantastic show though!

Just finished packing for a weeks fishing in the Highlands. Leave at 6 am for the 483 mile trip. Won't be posting during that time - my phone is not up to it. Taking warm clothes - it is 10 deg colder up there and out on a wet and windy Loch it feels freezing. The whiskey helps :biggrin:

I am alone in the house.  Mrs Col has gone to Manchester to 'Cat sit' for our oldest.  We used to have the cat here, but it all got to be too much of a faff for all concerned.  I'm not going to stay in a house with a cat for any length of time anyway, as I've always been a bit allergic to them, though not as bad as my brother, who gets something close to anaphalaxis around them.

 

So, here all alone with nothing but my itchy skin for company.  Three days of relief on the steroids, now back to square one.  See 'Ailments, Aches... etc...'

 

The long forecast warm sunny weekend hasn't materialised and it's cloudy with rain instead, before getting cooler again next week.  May potter a bit in the garden but really I'm a fair weather gardener.

 

May have a play at fixing my 3 year old Samsung A3 phone while it's quiet here. I've now assembled all of the tools, adhesives and the new battery for replacing the old.  Not 100% sure it's tha battery but seems logical as it's taking all day to charge and not holding a charge for long.  All for under 12 quid.  So it has to be worth a punt c.f. the cost of a new one. You have to remove the glass back from the phone, which is glued on.  Bit of a delicate process, but plenty of online tutorials for how to do it.  If it fails, or I break anything, or the new battery doesn't solve the problem, I'll just get a new phone. Couple of hundred quid I could do without spending but 'hey'.

It's TOO HOT.   It was 27 degrees in the shade an hour ago, but Paul now tells me it's only 24 degrees.  There's no wind so it's a bit oppressive.  Got the washing dry very quickly, though.   By the time I'd hung out the last item, the first one was nearly ready to bring in!

Swap with you Margie.  About 20 degrees here, cloudy and miserable.

Not this morning but this afternoon I sat out in the sun and then went to dip my legs in the pool. The water was 24 c but the outside temperature reached 35 c. About time too as we've had about our limit of rain and cold. Caught the sun so tomorrow it's costumes on and swimming. Bought a new life buoy ring to hang in the water and stretch my back. It's so relaxing. Picnic round the pool already prepared.

Not quite our place PF but yesterday all the local dogs including ours were barking . The noise was unbelievable. I went out to see what it was all about when I could see cycles , lots of them and going fairly fast, past our gate. Thought to myself "didn't know the giro d'italia was coming round here "( although it comes quite near)

 I then saw that the group was slowing down and I recognized the children from the schools doing their end of term cycle ride. They do it every year so it's the junior school and secondary schools that do it so there are hundreds of children. It's well organized with Carabinieri, ambulances and school buses in case some don't quite make it.

Sounds great Nonna,we have small local rides for the children (about 12-15 kids) from the local schools but nothing on that scale,makes sense to teach the children road sense,long may it continue

PF The giro d'italia near us was on May 23rd. Between Cuneo and Pinerolo ( Turin) we are between both. Thought it was a bit nearer but maybe that was a few years back. Seem to remember it came through the village. Will have a look.

Just checked yes it came through our village last year

Been moving loads of stuff out of the lounge as we're having a new carpet fitted. The fellows that do it are happy to move the main furniture as they just need to lift it about 10ins. All they ask is for us to clear all personal stuff, (of which there's loads). Been packing and moving ornaments records etc., bit of a bugger ! Thought I would be doing it again tomorrow but Sheffield park & garden came to my rescue. Sent me an email asking if I could go in and help out Sunday. Saved by the bell (or maybe the notification). If it's anything like today's weather, it will be a killer.

Sat through a pretty poor Champion's League final.  Not really a footie fan anyway.. but nice to see Mrs Col's city win..   Also watched the new Montalbano.  It's whimsical and a bit different.  I enjoy it.

 

I'm going to play some vinyl now... because I can..  :)

DJ360 .If you like Luca Zingaretti ( Montalbano) he was in a new tv film the other day not playing Montalbano but another similar part. He played a judge whose friend was killed by the mafia. I don't know if it will be televised in UK but watch it if they do. I think he's a great actor and this time he played along side his wife .
