Green fingers, red fingers, and pale tan shoes. - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
Green fingers, red fingers, and pale tan shoes.
I had a busy and productive weekend.

First was a trip to B&Q on Saturday. Although I forgot the measurements to the kitchen, we managed to buy some pots and plants to put in them. I also got an electric drill to put the TV stand up.

Whilst in B&Q I got a phone call from ntl: They are coming on Tuesday to upgrade our broadband connection! I'll have a 1meg downstream and a 256k upstream! It's so good I could pee!

The weather had turned a bit shit in the afternoon, and I wasn't really keen on going out again, so we painted. The stair well and upper landing is looking decidedly un-pink now! :) The "English Fire" paint looks fab on the stair wall. After breaking my back with the roller we settled down to chill and watch the 100 greatest films ever...

Sunday I was feeling a little achy, but we walked over the hill to the Hobby Shop, only to find it closed. Luckily Woolies was open, and they had the rawl plugs and screws I wanted. They also had power tools at toy prices! £7.99 for a jig saw, 9.99 for a drill, £7.99 for an orbital sander! I got the sander, it will come in handy for ridding the house of pink doors!

After popping in to see Mum on the way home Misty and I potted a few plants, and I dismantled and cleaned the deep fat fryer. Whilst Misty cooked dinner I attached the TV stand to the wall in the office, so now Misty can watch Neighbours whilst playing EVE :)

After dinner we finally got some EVE played. We managed to kill a few 'roids - we should get a bucket load of minerals if we get one of the boys to refine for us.

Current Mood: aches all over

PALE tan shoes eh? Not what I saw. Did they clean up or didn't you bother? Wouldn't mind but when you were a lad you wouldn't have been seen dead in PALE tan shoes!!!!!How did today go?(what with the back and all?) You going to be working from home any time this week- if so you might want to pop in.

I've got a new job starting tomorrow. It's gonna be coffee packing! Wont be as good as yours but a couple of samples will do me I reckon.

Love and hugs to you and "Flower Child"! xx
