Only three days in and so far May has turned out to be, well… different.
So far I have had to wait for two deliveries. One I waited in for, but had to nip out for a few minutes. Needless to say it arrived during those few minutes but the delivery bloke left the crate blocking the front door. It was really fucking heavy but I managed to shift it to get indoors. I then had to lug the contents upstairs and assemble it which damn near put my back out.
The other delivery was timed better. Or rather it would have been only he arrived early. I had had to go out again and timed things to arrive home before four [when the delivery was due] but the fucker arrived early and was blocking the lane so I couldn’t get in.
Apart from that I have had to do numerous trip around the neighbourhood, including one to Grandson’s school – the headmistress phoned me to say that he had been abandoned and could someone please collect him as she wanted to go home.
Then the cat somehow knocked my laptop onto the floor [with a very loud crash]. I don’t know how the fuck she did it, but it put the heart crossways in me. I think it still works. I’m not so sure about the cat.
While on the subject of the laptop, one of my more important programmes suddenly failed. I removed it and reinstalled it but it kept crashing. I searched the Interwebs but that was fuck all use. I did a quick re installation of Linux but that didn’t work either. I got it to work eventually but I’m not quite sure how.
Then there’s the two blocked toilets, where I could only be bothered to clear one.
And the Health Service nurse who was supposed to help with an audit of the house for disability purposes. All she did was order me to clear out the junk room. I don’t know why. None of her fucking business anyway.
Things have suddenly quietened down today.
I’m sitting here freezing with the door open.
I don’t mind the cold too much but the birdsong makes it worthwhile.
