Fencing Sculptor's Diary

The Ramblings of a Reluctant Civil Servant

Ho hum.

Preparations ahead of Saturday's BBQ continue apace as does the gradual escalation of the Met Office's dire forecasts for Saturday. I fully expect Michael Fish to be replaced on Friday evening's forecast by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Fortunately we're high up on the North Downs....but I suspect it's Kayaks I'm going to be short of rather than chairs for the garden....

How I'm going to fit 25 people into the Living room? I really don't know...

I'm beginning to panic....If I don't clean the windows will anyone notice, what about washing to tops of the door frames..... I mean...argghh.

Disaster was narrowly averted yesterday when a colleague asked whether my stereo could accept an Ipoddy-thingyamewhatsit. I had told people that they were welcome to bring tunes as I somewhat doubted that the 100 odd soundtracks I have on CD would constitute a rockin' partayyyy. I said I doubted it as it the stereo was about 20 years old...then remembered that the CD part has 'passed on'.

Buggrit!

Fortunately I was over in Essex last night to drop off Sharon's Birthday presents, (Complete portfolio of Edwards S Curtis and a boxed set of Audrey Hepburn DVDs..Hope she likes them), and borrow a table from younger Bro and S.I.L (sister in law) - and I was also able to borrow their state of the art mini system which was unplugged and in a box while they redecorate their lounge.

...So Muzak shouldn't be a problem...

So just the remaining food to get, the cleaning to do, the hoovering and to find somewhere to put all the climbing mountaineering and camping $hit that I leave lying around the place. Find something/somewhere to put all the people....... and to cash any miracle points owing to me to ensure the ensuing Apocalypse doesn't wash the BBQ out completely..... After all during last weekends three day rain fest I worked tirelesly to create a 1/1 scale replica of a small part of Northern France circa 1916...including digging out shrubs and inadvertantly creating shell holes...

"Hello; the Somme Public Baths -- no running, shouting, or piddling in the shallow end..."

It took me most of Sunday to wash the mud off the patio.....
Oh yeah I have to clean a carefully stacked pile of mud from the patio too...

So all in vain as Fence contractor was unable to errect ne fences in time for the Fencing BBQ.....

....and anyway...someone's been sitting in my office chair......

...New (second hand)Phone.....Old brain......

Arggghhh !

Change baaaaaaaaaaaad.

I loved my old phone ...my really old one...it did useful things that served a purpose.... then it died. (I poured tea on it !) But If I said "answer" to it it would connect me...none of this stupid button pressing or having to wear flashing blue Cyberman ear pieces.....

Then I got a secondhand Nokia 8thingywhatsit second hand off my Bro when he upgraded to Deepthought. It was Basic..... brick like....it functioned.

...for a few years...but laterly when I have recieved a call the battery drained completely and apparently people were getting fed up calling me only to get me greeting them by saying...."hallo...Be quick the battery's about to di..............beeeeeeeeep"

Technology I hates it I does.

So I have now inherited S.I.Ls old Samsung...it's shiny , it's got coloured screens !! ...it has a camera, was featured in the Matrix and posesses the most annoying ringtones ever........WTF hasn't it just got a ring tone ...like oh I don't know ...a fecking telphone would be nice !!! and I can't even text on it without it doing weird stuff.....

I'd post a picture of it but I don't know how....

I want's the precious back ....give it to me......

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

...now where did I put my mug of tea...

..No No No!......

See I'm trying to send a text and I've photographed my nostril !

...Upside down !

This is most frustrating and not at all an intended outcome!

It's bad enough having to pay for stupid texts....I'm not paying to photograph hairy orifices !

Bad Phone !

I must set about 'housetraining' it!

Yaaaayyyyyyy
