Autumn in the air
Sliding door wardrobe fitted on Saturday has transformed my upstairs office. 20 minutes later and I'd stripped all the flowery wallpaper from the walls (surprisingly easy!) from the previous owners, and the place was more my own. Now 2 x bookcases from the dining room moved up for better access and the room is done...for now, in one afternoon! (after 7 months of being a dumping ground).
Electrician coming round again next Monday. I think I am his retirement fund provider - he's been employed by me for about 11 days in total. The most work he's ever done for one person!
I made the decision to acoustically treat my office rather than buy a vocal booth. I live in a quiet area so outside noise isn't an issue. Apart from the man with the very small penis who has a loud Harley Davidson who drives up and down every so often. He's a twat.
So is Simon Cowell. There's most of Britain recyling, in fear of the British Government's bully-boy green lobby, and then on X Factor, Simon Cowell and the other judges arriving at destinations separately in 4 - yes FOUR helicopters flying within 50 yards of one another in the air. Couldn't you all get in ONE helicopter? Do you all have BO? What the fuck is going on there?
There's talk of incandescent light bulb hoarders. I'm not one, but I do have over 200 halogen bulbs spare. Mainly due to me losing a box of 100 and needing new ones urgently. Anyway, I have about 90 downlighters in my house and in 6 months only one bulb has needed to be replaced. I have a secret on how to achieve such a low blow rate. Underload your transformer by 10 watts and only have 2 lights per transformer (i.e. 2 x 20w bulbs per 1 x 60VA trans). There, saved you pounds!
