Good things from the last couple of weeks include meeting snapesbabe and shrublette, seeing matgb again after a long break, sorting out some stuff that has needed doing for too long and getting smiles from my wife for doing things without her asking. It doesn't happen very often as I just don't see things as she does, to her it's dirty, to me it's fine! Anyway, I got a surprised "oh, you already cleaned the kitchen" and then a cuddle and kiss, so we were both happy.
Bad things. Well, spent too much money again. No1 son (the 6' 1" target of shrublette's cushion attacks) had his 16th birthday, which wasn't cheap. Then, yesterday, it was decided by Tina that No2 son's (the one with hair, lots of hair) bedroom needed rearranging. To me this always seems to be an excuse for cleaning the bits of a room that never get seen, like behind the wardrobe. Anyway, said wardrobe promptly fell apart and had to be replaced by 2 chests of drawers??? Yes, I'm as confused as you are. Anyway, yesterday was then spent driving around until we found said chests of drawers, then buying them (financial ouch) and transporting them home so we could put them together. Except all the tools were at my step-daughters, so out we go again and then come back to put them together. They are solid wood and well constructed. 8 screws in each drawer, plus dowell's and glue. Much better than the wardrobe. Anyway, she likes it, he likes it and I have to pay for it at the end of the month. And we have had to tax the car, which isn't cheap dammit!
Ugly thing is this, which I find sickening. I don't expect the pathetic individual responsible for the death of this animal will ever be found, but I hope he gets his just rewards. What enjoyment is there in killing such a rare creature and mounting its head on a wall? It's so bloody pathetic that I am saying nothing more about it here.
Anyway, that's about it for my ramblings today. I'm off out to play with toy soldiers again tonight, so all of you behave while I'm gone.
