Yes I’m still kicking, a lot has happened and although I still have a lot to upload (the blog sort of continues on my laptop most of the time so if you keep an eye out you might see that missing month plus soon).
Just to recap – Decided to cut the contract short with the last company when it became clear friends where being brought in (I was strung along for a couple of weeks before I realised what was happening) I think that the person in charge was getting money from the recruitment company every time someone was placed so made sense coming up to Christmas to place a lot of mates.. *sigh* I should add for the record this is my opinion, nothing more.
Got back home and started packing more boxes of stuff moving bits down from the last loft (what a nightmare) had lots of arguments with Angel (sorry) before we started moving bits over (got the Pinball tables over on ourselves.
The phone-line that was put in while I was working failed and took over a week for it to be fixed, I then noticed that BT must have been confused when they run in the replacement cable as it is strung out in the trees as if it’s a set of outdoor Christmas tree lights!.. Not sure it will last long! And the Fibre broadband is a cack 1-4mb down and 0.1-.5 up (depending on crossed lines etc), not worth over £50 a month I think you will agree.
Managed to stick up part of a fence (chicken wire) after Smudge did a runner across the road (the day before a dog was knocked down and killed on same road too), got some more to stick up and then try and secure it as best as can.
The Chickens have laid two eggs to date, but seem happy so far.
Been going around replacing bulbs with LED’s and had a quote for solar panels.
Waiting on information on a log cabin for the office.. And going to start calling about come Monday for work for the coming year.
I have missed out a fair bit but that will probably pop up in the next couple of days (between unpacking more boxes and sorting out the garden/garage/sheds).
Happy New Year everyone!
