Cor What an Evening

Its been rainy and wet and went milder here today; so much so I ended up getting very hot at work and took my thick jumper off which is something I don't normally do.  Its colder though here this evening at home and my jumper has stayed well and truly on.

Things have been a tad busy around here especially at work, with me leaving work a lot later than I should do and then being all in a rush to do things when I eventually get home.   And then with the blog going different on me last night I had to have a rapid tutorial on what to do and what not to do - I am still not sure whether I have finished re-arranging the furniture.  Thanks to the assistance in some part of Rose of Second Hand Rose I think I have managed to sort out the two word verification for entering comments on the blog.  Mind you I had to go back into the old interface to actually do it as I could not locate it on the new interface, but I hope I now have managed to sort it out.  Go on post me and see if Blogger will let you and if you have any problems just let me know on fluffupyourfairy@hotmail.co.uk if you are still having problems and I will then have another look at it.  Might speak to the IT chappie at work to see if he can assist if there are further problems.

Now on leaving work late but not as late as I have been, I jumped into the car with my partner waiting for me and being "kissed" to death by Missy.  We went up the Boulevard, came to the Queensgate Roundabout was just going over the junction and the car packed up, wouldn't go into gear came to a stop wouldn't drive forward.  Everyone was leaving work, we were in the way - OH hadn't bought his phone or his wallet out with the recovery service details that he pays for on his insurance card in.  OH had flashers on the car  lit up but silly devils still kept coming up behind us, beeping their horns etc.  Only one person stopped a cyclist who came back because he thought we needed a push bless him.  In the end I phoned the Police and they got a patrol car to come out to us; they stopped the traffic so that we could push the car round to the other side of the Boulevard into a lay by.  We then walked home.  It was 7 pm by the time we got home (I left work at 5.30 p.m). OH then contacted the chap who we bought the car off - as we have had problems on and off with it since we bought it and the car is to be taken to him.  He has no recovery vehicle, but the car is to go back to him.  OH rang the insurance company.  Office closed so he rang the recovery team.  We then found a problem, we had no cover despite carrying on with the same policy that we have had for the past three years and receiving no notification of any changes at all; the recovery people have however sent someone out and once OH has contacted the insurance people tomorrow to try and get things sorted out because we certainly haven't changed the details of the policy and the insurance company have some explaining to do.

OH then walked back into town after arranging for the recovery people to meet him where he left the car.  By the time he got back in was gone 8.00 p.m.  We then sat down and had chilli and baked potatos with lashings of cheese and by golly was it good.  

I have been sat on the sofa since playing catchup on the TV - the Midwifes and now Whitechapel.  I still have Demetri to get in, and then I am off to bed - I have to walk into work again tomorrow by the looks of things.  If its not one thing its another. 

Let me know if there are any problems in leaving a comment.

Am off to potter and to find the cat.

Take care wherever you are

Sweet dreams

  9. Hi ladies

    Thank you for your good wishes and for your comments.

    These things are sent to try us; mutter mutter. I have thoroughly enjoyed the Midwives series [I hadn't realised that was the last one - oh dear now what is going to keep me entertained!].

    The car - well OH got to speak to someone sensible at the insurance place today who informed us that we were insured and would not have to pay anything towards the collection of the car; the recovery people had got it wrong and he apologised on their behalf. We haven't heard anything about the car yet!

    Sorry it has been so small on the page, this is partly due to the design templates and the layout of the information I choose to have on my blog. You can however increase the pitch of the type on any computer screen by pressing down the control (Ctrl key) on the keyboard and whilst this is depressed clicking on either the plus or minus key on the right hand side of the keyboard.

    Pressing the control and plus key together increases the size of the screen font and equally pressing the control key and the minus key reduces it. You can do this on anything you cannot read clearly on the screen on any blog or anything you are reading online. Hope this helps
