I have been somewhat busy today.
For a start Herself had the idea of robbing my chair when she’s in this room. She tried it yesterday evening and found it very comfortable so has decided it’s now hers. Fuck! I tried the chair she normally uses but it’s not as comfortable. It’s one of those fancy electric ones that not only lifts your feet off the floor but has another button the flips the whole thing up to almost a standing position. I tried speeding it up to try flipping Herself out the door but that didn’t work. I had to make do with just tipping her onto the floor in a heap.
I decided to wage war on Penny and recapture her armchair which used to be mine until the newfangled ones arrived. I always liked it so I decided to reclaim it by moving all the furniture around. Penny isn’t happy as she is now reduced to a mere bed and sole use of a two seater couch in the sitting room. Having moved the chairs around I then had to clear all the rubbish I had thrown in behind the chairs for want of a bit of storage space. A lot of the rubbish has to be shredded too as there are some documents that may cause a wee problem should Revenue ever come poking around.
I have decided to give the Biography thing a bash. If it reaches a couple of thousand words I will be more than surprised. What I will probably do is scribble off a few pieces here on various topics and then flesh them out into proper chapters in the book. In the meantime I will write more material for the book only, as it would probably be too boring for here.
I discovered today that going into Windows and firing up Word doesn’t work any more. For some extremely irritating reason it wants me to buy a licence or something fucking stupid like that. Arseholes. So I’m using LibreOffice Writer which will be as good [if not better] as soon as I get used to it. I even found a formatting template for writing a novel which is novel?
I’m taking a break now. I’m waiting for a grocery delivery at the moment [life here is wildly exciting and hectic, isn’t it?] and need to conserve my energy for putting away stuff into cupboards, freezers and the fridge that are already full.
I can see the Electric Chair out of the corner of my eye. It’s big and black and is looking extremely unhappy at being shoved against the wall. It actually looks quite agressive as if it’s about to launch itself at me. I should be all right though, as I doubt it can attack me when it’s not plugged in?
But you can never tell with modern appliances?
