in other news….Blinds!

I knew I’d forgotten some major flat event – The Blinds!!!

– Purchased painlessly and pleasantly parsimoniously from The Discount Blind Centre shop just off Northcote Road, from the young and helpful Gerhard.

– Collected (breathless after a 7 minute dash from Clapham Junction so as to arrive before the 6pm closing time – it rained, so ‘SWT services were subject to delays’) on Tuesday evening, in advance of annoyed/ing Antoinette’s visitation.

– Installed the same evening (after le depart d’Antoinette) with assistance (and drill) from the lovely Phil.

Dad will remind me that venetian blinds are plagued by dust, but I think mine look Just Right

The Roons is 30!

Went to The Lark in the Park, Islington (“borders”) to celebrate Juls’ 30th.

Ummed and ahhed between their 30th and Azeem’s, opting for Juls’ on the basis that Tom & Jo, Chris and Sara, Andy Stephens as well as Steve and Juls would be there, whereas the revellers at Adam Street were rather less well known.

Great Mooney-Rooney party, complete with vodka-serving ice maiden torso. The pictures reveal all!!

Barbie As Rapunzel

aka, that’s my Christmas present(s) for Rosa (and Barney on a brother-borrowing-basis) sorted!!

The film Cait’s brother directed is out on DVD – so the bairns are getting the Barbie As Rapunzel DVD for Chrimbo….

uh-oh…. but they don’t *have* a DVD player (yet).

Time for a word in bro’s shell-like methinks…..

Revo Repairs

Figured out what was wrong with my Revo when I eventually managed to jiggle one of the rattling bits out – the spring which holds it shut. Not worth spending £70 for Psion to diagnose that prior to repairing (at cost), so I jiggled out the other spring and now use and elastic band to keep it shut. Parfait!

…and ::breathe::

I’ve just checked Friends Reunited and the guy I fancied *for ages* at school and Sixth Form is on there for the first time.

I’m this >|< close to hyperventilating.

Half a lifetime later and I’m still acting 16 whenever I visit that site.
