    Not much going on, so I thought I'd start a thread about it..

    Yep......Anyway I've just taken the bins out. Now I'm sitting here waiting for something exciting to happen.

    So what do you do when there's not much going on?

    Gary Numan, my wee sisters crush

    You know she has fibres she plucked from his carpet over 30 years ago

    She still goes to all his concerts, think he's still big in Oz where she lives now

    What part of Dorset Roz? I'm in Poole next week, I need to check up on my Peacock who lives on Brownsea Island.

    Apparently there's a few Squirrels running around with Squirrel Plague or something..I dunno? Very worrying.

    Not everyone has carpet fibres


    Seriously she posted a pic up on face book the other week

    He used to live in Vaginia Waters and she used to skip school and head up there. One day he was in and invited her and bf in for coffee , she plucked the carpet


    I'm just grateful his name wasn't James

    Bins are out now. Cats are in. Alarm needs to go on and lights need to go off.

    We are renting a cottage in Burton Bradstock. I hope to go on a guided fossil hunt, ride a speed boat, bod around the market towns, drink plenty of cider, and eat copious amounts of cream teas. I also think a trip to the tank museum at Bovington is probably in order.

    It's also meant to be a bit of therapy for my husband, who is having a tough time at the moment and could do with getting away for a while. I hope that our daughter is in a sweet-angelic-child mood, instead of her possessed-by-demons mood.

    A bit of nice weather wouldn't go amiss, either...

    I thought I'd report back to let you all know that after putting my bins out last night, they have been collected. That's that ordeal over for another fortnight.

    Well I de-frosted the freezer, watched the film and went to bed.

    I'm now in Surrey, sitting here with the missus who's asleep on the Sofa.

    You can use a mouse on a laptop I think, never done it myself but I guess you just plug it in. I think the keypad will still work too, same as if I plug a second mouse into my computer bother work, I some times do that so that my hands can fight over were the pointers goes.

    Hours of fun.

    Today I folded some washing and ventured out to the bins. In the dark. With a torch. Oh the exciting life I lead.
