Lighting up

I felt so tired all day yesterday. It took me ages to fall asleep on Sunday night (I think due to over-consumption of caffeine) and so didn’t get anywhere enough sleep. It does tend to mean that I get a really nice night’s sleep on a Monday though, whicg did prove to be the case.

Anyway, yesterday sent someone an e-mail to ask about he colleague who has an interview for the same job as me. He came over to see me and said “she’s rubbish. She is a real worrier and panics about everything.” That’s what I like to hear. That doesn’t mean she isn’t fantastic at interviews though, of course...

I was looking in my airing cupboard yesterday and there is a strange cylinder attached to my hot water tank. It seems to serve no purpose and is just slowly rusting. I think the rusting is getting worse though so have arranged for someone to come round and look at it, as it’s either going to rust through one day and presumably cause a problem or it’s just dripping rust into my hot water tank, which isn’t great either. The firm I spoke to, who fitted my fire and serviced my boiler etc, are so helpful and I arranged an appointment for next week for them to come and assess it, but they phoned back and said they’d just drop round one evening and have a look and then presumably will just get on with the work next week instead. I so like having a firm I can call up and they just do what they can to help. I have no plumbing expertise and have to rely on people who do know what they are talking about and it’s so easy to get ripped off. So it’s good to feel confident in a company. I should perhaps look into getting some skills in that area though, just to deal with basic ‘incidents’ at home. You have to be corgi registered to deal with some things though and somehow I think that might be going a bit too far.

If you have some lighting expertise then you might want to try installing this though. Why bother with actual lights when you can get your wallpaper to glow. How very bizarre, and yet kind of cool at the same time.

Don't do plumbing, do carpentry... then you can come over and build me some built in bookshelves. Like the wallpaper TFX

TF - carpentry runs the risk of sawn off digits and so on though. My hands are one of my best features, so I need to protect my assets. Carpentry would be a handy skill though as I could do with some built in shelves too.

I do a fair bit of DIY. My handy hint... it is always important to have the right tools for the job.

kahless - I'll be calling you next time I need some DIY done then. Bring your toolkit.
