Re: The insomniacs thread

Another day to forget . . . it all started about 10am when I hoovered the whole house from top to bottom . . . then I graduated to the cooker in the kitchen and scrubbed that clean . . . then the kitchen floor needed scrubbing because of muddy Rottie paw prints . . . . then the pump in the garden pond needed cleaning out . . . . by this time it was after lunch time . . . but lunch is for wimps so I proceeded to attend to the plants in the greenhouse . . . I emerged from the greenhouse and was greeted by 4 hungry looking Rottie faces . . . sodditt . . .I had forgotton to give em their breakfast.

Then it was time for a visit to Tescos, and joy of joys, the car park was full . . . I eventually got parked but inside the store it was mobbed with demented shoppers running around like headless chickens . . . after elbowing my way through the throng of shoppers who stand and look at products on the shelves as though their life depended on them picking the correct thing, I managed to get to the express checkout where the machine asked if I had my own bag . . . . I was sorely tempted to do it harm but managed to control myself . . . after grinding my teeth and loosing more tooth enamel, I emerged from Tescos to be greeted by yet another shower of rain . . . it was a blessing because it cooled me down after all that stress.

This evening I cleaned out both filters in the large aquarium in the living room . . . they aint been cleand for 6 months . . . that took me 90 mins . . . . I then sat down to enjoy a coffee and the phone rang . . . . I was sorely tempted to bounce it off the wall but took a deep breath and politely answered it saying . . . " someone had better be dead " . . . it was my daughter asking if I'd had a good day . . . . . well, what could I say to that ? . . . I replied "yes indeed, it was a lovely day my dear" . . . she replied "bloody liar, I know you dad . . . you can't sit on your ass for more than 2 minutes" . . . .

It's now 01:10am and I've had enough . . . . I shall now go and collapse in the sack so I'll wish youse all a restfull night . . . there'se no rest for the wicked is there, so no doubt I'll have a restless night . . . I hope this story makes you feel like you've had a better day than I . . . g'night offers.

Re: The insomniacs thread

Oh well . . . that's another day nearer eternity for me . . . next door neighbour's concrete mullion on their lower window gave way today . . . I noticed yesterday it had big cracks in it and suggested they get it fixed.

The chap walloped it with a hammer today and the whole thing came crashing down . . . I made a shuttering casement for them and put it in place, wedged it with a wooden plank, then filled it with a concrete mix, there was also a bit of steel reinforcing rod which went back into the core too, so tomorrow it should be set nicely.

The mullion is 6 inches square and 5 foot high . . . if it had hit someone when it gave way the outcome could've been tragic . . . that was my good deed for today folks so I shall now shuffle off to the land of nod . . . sleep well offers . . . see yez tomorrow.

It's the upright pillar between window sashes Eileen, usually concrete but sometimes made of wood, some windows have 3 sashes with 2 mullions, the window I repaired had two with one mullion between them.

Here's a a link DM.
