Apparently most of the country had ground to a halt due to the arrival of about three flakes of snow. We’ve had nothing here. I can’t remember the last time we had proper snow here. It’s not fair, I want snow dammit.
Another “one of those days” at work again. I’m expecting tomorrow to be just the same.
I did manage to take back my old TV though, hopefully the refund cheque will arrive shortly. It’s also payday tomorrow, that’ll be the first pay for 6 long long weeks.
Wish I’d not gone back to work today, it was just one of those days which actually felt like two of those days rolled into one. Hopefully tomorrow will be slightly better.
Congratulations to Gray on becoming Dr. Gray.
Just got back with a replacement TV, this one appears, so far, to be much better in that white pictures are actually white. Now for some serious testing, currently it’s Monsters Inc.
Well, the new TV is faulty which is a major pain in the arse. Hopefully I’ll be able to get it exchanged on Monday as there is a supplier over it Bristol.
Otherwise a quiet day really.
The new TV has just been delivered. It was actually too big to fit through the front door whilst in it’s box, I had to get the assistance of a volunteer (well, volunteered by someone else), and unpack it before bringing it into the house. It’s now set up and installed, the picture geometry is far better than the Thomson was, and it has the ability to rotate the picture. All I need to do is to set the brightness/contrast/colour to more sensible levels.
In an attempt to use up my remaining 12 days leave before the end of March, I’m taking a nice long weekend. Hopefully my new TV will be delivered on Monday, which was the main reason for using it now. They took the money today but don’t appear to have dispatched it yet.
Today was the first time I’d commuted to work by bike since the beginning of December. This was down to the Inbred being off the road for 5 weeks with a broken freehub, and the weather being crap. I tend not to ride to work when it’s raining as I stay drier if I walk, and it doesn’t take that much longer. Ite felt wierd riding the Inbred with V brakes on it again. Maybe that front disk will come along sooner than I intended.
Well, Comet agreed a full refund for my current tv, once I take it back they’ll process the paperwork and send me a cheque. I’ve just ordered a slightly more expensive Philips to replace it which will hopefully not take too long to arrive.
Shopping is fun.
Hmm, Sanyo, Philips, Sharp? The choice is (almost) endless.
Maybe I’ll just offer them £100 for my current tv.
