Tried turning the heating on earlier and the boiler wouldn’t light. Just sitting here thinking maybe something wrong with gas when a guy knocks on the door ans says there’s been a burst main at the end of the road and they need to turn off my supply quick. These things only happen in winter don’t they!

Share Dealing

What a bloody nightmare it is trying to deal shares. I brought some years ago in the last company I worked for. I got 500 at 2.5p each but now the company has jigged round so it works out at 50 at 25p each. Spoke to someone at stocktrade which is who i’d originally brought them through and they said I had to re-register as the account was so old then they told me about crest/nominee and certificated accounts WTF! all I want to do is sell some bloody shares, can it really be that hard????

Got the Serendipity theme preatty much how I want it now. Got rid of the date showing on every topic title, added the time entry was made and made it so all entries for a particular day only come under one date heading.

Gallery? well scrapped 2 and went back to 1 and much happier for it.

I’m liking the new template (just need to make some tweaks) however Gallery2 won’t intergrate very easily and to be honest I don’t like the skins that come with it, they’re all to ‘fussy’ sooo thinking I might just go back to Gallery1 as I had that how I wanted it so that’s my next job. Sure I posted on my old blog ‘stick with what you know’ :rolleyes

What is your true element?

Your element is Fire: Strong, hot tempered,
powerful, and passionate. Well now lets see,
being fire you are quite strong and powerful,
people look up to you greatly and often seek
your protection. You have the ability to gain
many friends and you are always one people can
count on to do what you say you will do. You
are extremely loyal be it friends or family
you’ll stick up for them and you are never
willing to put them in a position that could
hurt them. You know what roll you play in life,
leader, and you intend to let people know it.
Not everyone is capable of leadership but you
certainly have the willpower and flare to do
it. You have quite a temper if it shows itself,
one that can often lead you into trouble. Once
your mind is made up there is no changing it
but no one said that was a bad thing.

Leah’s Leaving Do

The Crosse Keys pub in ‘Bank’ was the venue. As always Jon and I got there early only to find Leah there waiting. A couple of pints in and people started arriving, it was good to see everyone make the effort to turn up to see her off. I said my fairwells at about 10 and made my way home.

Thanks for everything Leah you will be missed and THE VERY BEST OF LUCK for the future

Pics can be found here curtosy of Franco
