    Interesting day.

    First off, went to The Range to try to get some wallpaper but couldn't find what I wanted, but then went past some decent seeming plastic coated fabric that will be perfect. So now we have to figure out how to hang it

    And then I had an excellent result.

    A few weeks ago I bought an Evergreen Easy Spreader plus, used it to put lawn sand on my lawn, then found the adjuster would not work. Contacted Scotts (they make them) to find out if there was anything I could do about it, fairly sure it was down to using it for lawnsand. To cut a long story short it turned out that their head office is just about 3 miles from us, got a phone call while I was at The Range asking if someone could pop round to look at it this afternoon, along she came, concluded that the adjustment thingy would not adjust, went out to the car and came back with a far better one, so I ended up getting the spreader I really wanted for the price I wanted to pay

    When they change to confirmed it then usually takes a few days (sometimes weeks) - my Celebrations receipt was uploaded yesterday and has now changed to confirmed but not yet payable. An item uploaded on 11/4 is confirmed and payable.

    I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
