Lol, pretty much. :lol: One of those things where I'll start thinking about what I could do, then i get a bit obsessive over it till I get it out of my head.

I wasn't able to do anything hands-on due to having surgery and radiotherapy for breast cancer and made the mistake of saying so. Guy wanted to know how to make his development beautiful as well as eco-friendly and all the guff that people say.....know now but went along for the ride.......
I did loads of work for him and produced some scaled drawings/plans. Luckily I didn't give him anything more than a rough drawing (had done much research into site-specific indigenous plants and all the rest) which would be buggerall use to your average man with digger/motorised soil cultivator ( I know OK! But I've met them).
The guy in question said he'd get in touch......still waiting :roll:
Came across him once in a shop nearby. Never seen anyone his age move so fast...........expletive deleted.
The whole thing put down as 'experience'......
:twisted:


Nice guy. :lol:

I think the same way. Learned some stuff you didn't know before and it could help you later.

Someone's smoke detector seems to have a defect/ low battery. It's beeping every 30 or so seconds. I feel a bit like in a U-boat movie. Ping....., Ping......
It's not really loud, but I guess I'm a bit stressed out (studying for an exam on Monday) and it's getting on my nerves to the point where it becomes a major niggle.
Add to that they're working on the railroad tracks on the side of the Rhine and everytime a train approaches there are warning honks so the workers can get off the track.
Drives my crazy.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools

Don't get me on the subject of smoke detectors. I rent my place and the landlord decided to fit one above the oven and grill. How often do you think that went off. :roll:

Checked my lease and I have to have the smoke detector in the kitchen. I do it's now in a drawer with no power supply :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Sorry CB, that would be really annoying.

Another pair of running shoes down. I was hoping not to have to order another pair before the con, but they're making my feet hurt. :(

I think I've seen ads for a version that has an Off switch for when you're cooking.

My father in law, who I otherwise adore, is driving me crazy. He wants to come to the horse show the girls are in, and celebrate Thing 2's birthday at the same time. Which is great, that's our usual plan! However, he's stuck on the idea that the show is in the morning and it isn't. We keep going around and around about when to do what and I'm just feeling done with it.

But how would I be able to tell if my dinner's cooked? ;)

Print out the day's schedule, in big letters, and stick it on his fridge.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Agreed. Then text him an hour before he needs to set off.
