Was a bit chilly in the shade, but it still made me feel so much better in myself.
Good morning Bob

Does that mean you are full weight bearing without crutches and can you do stairs or start driving?

Is the electric hospital bed ready to be returned?

Go carefully.

Good morning Jeff, thank you for sharing the photos of the Aston Martin. The internal photos must have been difficult to take from inside the back.

How is your week looking?

Get through to a menu, choose option, another menu, choose option, wait ................. finally get a chirpy chappie who needs to verify my details and sends a code via text, submit code, put on hold, checking file, put on hold, "Our engineer couldn't complete the work today, so you need to re-book!" Try again next Friday!!! ..................... and I am paying them for this "service"! I've had similar with British Gas too (trying to do a service on my boiler that isn't due until May - smart meter hasn't worked for years). It seems that anything with "British" in the title is going downhill rapidly! Rant over! Have a nice day y'all!
Good morning Mike

I stopped moaning about BT after I left them 2 years ago and went over to one of their subsidiaries. Then last summer the quality of the phone line was rubbish, so on the anniversary of the contract I pulled out of using the line for the phone and just have the line for internet only. I understand your frustration over the use of the title British. Years ago British Airways gave me lots of problems so now I never fly with them. During the pandemic I had accumulated 46,000 plus air miles and because I couldnít use them BA took them away. That was the last straw. They are slightly cheaper to fly direct from Nairobi to London but I refuse to fly with them on principle. They used to be a great airline.

Thank you for answering about your connection with Eire and for telling us you are related to Irish royals in your heritage, that is quite a thing.

My Grandfather was a blacksmith and had his own forge in Ennis Co Clare. I still have a connection with family in Eire. I sometimes think about getting an Irish passport.

Itís great news to hear your Mother is doing well, hopefully things are looking up.

I got another email from BT at 4 something o'clock this morning (the 28th), saying that my broadband installation was moving from the 26th to the 27th!!!! Suitable response sent back!



You couldn't make it up, could you?


EDIT:- Call from BT. We don't need an engineer. It's all been done at the "box"!

A six litre? As we used to say in Yorkshire "Aye! Three white leets at front and three red 'uns at back!"
