    Re: Reasons to be cheerful...

    The synchronised cheerleading, from the Olympics, put a smile on my face...

    And, hoping the hand of friendship, being shown from both sides of Korea, is genuine...

    We used Appliances Direct, after getting peed off with Currys, and they were great as well. Was a bit concerned having never heard of them but the online reviews were generally good so we went with them. The two delivery drivers were brilliant and even though we hadn't paid for installation they installed everything for us, as long as we promised not to mention it in the review we left as they would've got in trouble with their bosses.

    Just back from swallowing a camera at the docs. All ok. Phew. Relieved is not the word.

    Still flipping uncomfortable swallowing, but not potentially fatal. Happy days, now where's the lager?

    Re: Reasons to be cheerful...

    Got some wall plastering done a week or so back - Tuesday evening (having had walls decorated) we noticed that under a strong downlight the plastering on one of the walls was terrible - really awful - we hadn't noticed it before.

    So I called the plasterer and said I wasn't happy. Now I rarely complain about this sort of stuff - things might not be perfect but usually OK. But this was frankly awful.

    He came round at 3:30pm yesterday pm; took a look at it, turned to me and told me that it was terrible and that he was very embarrassed that it was his work. He explained why it had happened and then just got on with replastering. It isn't much of a wall but he spent nearly four hours on it and it is like glass. Let's see how it stands up under the harsh glare of a strong downlight this evening.

    Reason to be cheerful? - is that I am - in my creeping dotage - realising that many if not most tradesmen want their work to be appreciated, and are as disappointed as the customer if it is not. And so I must not worry about complaining - for if they are worth their salt they will remediate the problem.
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Job done

    Good news. Not a pleasant experience but better than it travelling up from a different area
