It’s my Wife’s Birthday!
Just a quick posting for today to wish my wonderful wife a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY, even though she’s busy at work and taking everything in her stride.
Um… Yeah. She’s not really 50, not even anywhere close to that, but these were the only balloons that I could lay my hands on and so they just had to do – even if I did find them slightly amusing.
I’m sure there’ll be cake later.
In other news… Well, there’s not much to tell you actually. My Mother-in-Law is staying with us at the moment, so she’s been immersing herself with the kids, which leaves me with very little to do on that front. At least that gives me a chance to do other things. Which leads nicely to…
I looked and gasped in horror at the cracked and crumbling wood that I spotted on the TARDIS the other day, it’s rather shocking to see how it’s progressing – so that’s really going to require some attention soon. The gaps at the joins are opening up at an alarming rate too, but having given it the once over, it’s fairly cosmetic (on the whole), but action is required sooner, rather than later. It’s a restoration project in potentia.
Recently I was looking through eBay and someone has an MFX Replicas Sonic Screwdriver for sale and one of the pictures used in their sale advert is lifted from this very blog.
This image, in fact.
Now, I don’t mind them using it for illustrative purposes, but it would have been polite to at least ask me first. Not that I retain nor claim copyright over it. Yes I made the frame grabs, but the boxed out Sonic is my personal copy and isn’t for sale.
Oh well. Not that it bothers me.
Lastly then. Where does our stuff go in this house? One minute it’s there, the next minute it’s gone. Vanished into the ether! Over the last few months, all manner of things have disappeared – including the lid to our bin and that’s not something small enough to just fall down behind something, it’s well and truly evaporated. I’ve torn the house apart looking for the wretched thing. The latest thing to have taken its leave is the charger to our camera, so for now, I can’t take any pictures as the battery ran out this morning – great timing, eh? If we don’t find it, we’ll have to buy a new one and they cost £50… and I bet you that as soon as we do purchase the replacement, the original one will miraculously show up.
Oh well, back to the grind. Watch how I wait for people not to return my calls (yeah, I’m really popular me), be in awe at my increasing frustration and leap with glee as I just about lose it over small things. Beyond all that though, things are great, no really they are.
