Good Afternoon. Heavy rain this morning lashing against the windows. O H went out this morning to check the car , we haven't used it for a few weeks It's kept in the garage which is a nice solid brick one and we have laid old carpet on the floor. Luckily it started first time so O H sat there for a while , doors open, with the engine running. We had a new battery from the AA a few years ago which lasted until the guarantee ran out, so we're wary now , got a decent one from our dealer ,

Fourth attempt to reply, This damn stupid pooter keeps cancelling - sure that damn cat who walks across my keyboard has put a hex on it.
I got that message to, but doesn't one need a TV, and a bit of copper wire connected to either an aerial, or to that box on the wall that predates my living here for 39 years?(if it is still in service which I doubt) and a Licence?

Good Morning. Bright here. Lots going on here -not. Gas hole still not being dealt with. Dentist - people complaining it hasn't been open for a couple of weeks now and they can't get through on the phone. Hairdresser closed down and application to turn the premises in to two flats turned down,

Yup, Complications here too. High Court, decreed that My address was in Perpetuity, But The Council has not tighted it, and neither has Royal Mail. Insurers (inc Legal matters) are exceeding difficult when one does not have an address... I thought Insurers were sorting this, but their Underwriters are making life Complicated - Seems to be "Pass-the-Parcel-Time". Some sort of Agency sent me to an outfit in Wydahmm - No Reply, Passed on to a Chelmsford e-mail address - gawdnose why. Then on the another outfit in Colchester - they sent me a Lengthy Questionaire to select a Solicitor from, which I did - now they want permisiok'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''============ Sorry, thats my Moggy stamping on the keyboard to demand food. Where was I! Oh yes I'm susposed to sighn something for permission to share my details - Is there a form?? is it a signature - and where is it to be sent to, and is to permission that my insurers sent to pay the cost. Tried to get hold of CAB, but no staff, so I should go to another town... Then I've been to bank on pretty much the same address problem - Mainly that I won't sign to pay my Mortgage to an address that is not the one I have a morgage for.
Thats Enough - I'll go out into the Forest and have a good scream...

Good Afternoon. 'Twas windy here in the early hours. Calmer now but chilly. Bins flying down the road so I've retrieved what I can and restored them to their homes. lol we also have small waste food bins ,get collected each week. One was laying in the road but the owners don't wrap anything so I'll let you imagine the state it's in. I kicked it on to their front lawn.

I know the problem, HW. This is all pedestrian here, so no road, just interconnected Courtyards right up to ones house (public Courtyard only, No Garden), Bagged rubbish (black) and Recycle bags (Pink) left on the pavement.. but I didn't like the idea of all those plastic sacks being dumped, so I got some decomposable bags .. Unfortunately, they don't get collected, so I now have to put them inside a black plastic bag .... Anyone remember that Advert "You KNOW it makes sense"

Good Morning . C'mon wake up !! Wet and windy here. OH struggled out to get some bits from the nearby small supermarket. He got cold and wet. gas hole no more . Wonder how long before the next one.
Council have been out and put orange markers across the path beside our garden. It's breaking up and the council bit of the drive to ours needs attention. It's higher than the path and a trip hazard. Been like that for years, I got used to stepping across it.
I only hope they don't undermine our drive in the quest to correct it. Will have to take some pictures for proof in case they damage our drive.
