Scaffolding and online storage issues to start the working week.
We’ve had a decent quote for the gutters at South Lambeth Road. The only downside is that bloody scaffolding is required.
Meanwhile my library only iMac decided to tell me at a fairly critical time that it was pretty much bursting to the max.
I resolved a few weeks ago to replace it as some stage with a budget PC with a STONKING hard drive of storage. I only use this machine as a library for my CHOONS and images.
Solace was sought at the gym.
I took out my frustrations with a bloody decent treadmill session.
I’ve had the same workout since back in the Brixton Rec early 90s days: 10 minutes at 10kmh with a 5% incline, three minutes on 13kmh reduced to a 3% incline, and then finally a mad two minute 15kmh sprint.
I still felt good after the first minute of the sprint. I pushed it to 16kmh.
And then I fell over.
I was standing around a fair bit though for the weights. The traditional gym buddy twosome had been replaced by a threesome on Monday morning.
Two fellas and a girl were doing their sets simultaneously.
Gym buddies is a polite way of saying selfish machine hogs.
I was determined to get my full sets in. This meant that I was running a little late for the work shift back at base.
I cycled back in 17 minutes flat. The same route took 25 minutes on Sunday.
Some stop / start work; some window cleaning.
It wasn’t very successful. Luke warm water leaves your windows looking a little cloudy around the edges.
Some more stop / start work; some silly gardening as darkness descended.
I say gardening – it was more like trying rake up as many leaves as possible on the lawn. Cat shit featured around the borders.
Thankfully I had my gardening gloves on.
Anna disappeared to pick up the veg bag.
I listened to BBC Nottingham and Match Talk.
I’ve been googling Forest retro Kits with a little too much enthusiasm of late.
The scaffolding issue became a long ladder possibility late in the day. It also shaved a considerable chunk of the gutter budget.
A new domain name was bought early evening. I did the famous WordPress five minute installation in… 25 minutes – my best yet.
I now need some content to fill the new site with.
Why do I always agree to these things?
