    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    Maybe there was a tear in the space - time continuum.
    Things seem more 'normal' today already somehow.

    Off to do some more walking now, hopefully catch everybody later.

    Realising that if we have to print out all the evidence documents for Mrs MbW's visa renewal in October, since we have an inkjet printer, we're going to need at least 3 sets of the extra capacity cartridges - for our Epson XP-332, that's about 55 per set, or around 220

    I wonder if I can hire a laser printer that can do double sided printing for that purpose, or find a company that can print the stuff off for me (I've tried Google, but I mostly get the commercial printers who do flyers and business stationery) for a better rate since there's monthly bank statements, bills, letters and emails from mid-April 2017 onwards, and the list will keep growing until we submit the application

    Enter your postcode and the type of company (eg photocopying and printing) and you will get a list of local small companies that offer that service.

    The site is Trading Standards approved, and I've found lots of really good - and good value - companies from this.

    Good question - I haven't totalled it up yet, and there are still some documents I'm waiting for Mrs MbW to bring back with her from her current visit to her family, and they'll need to be translated as well, so I'm going to write an Excel spreadsheet with macros to automate that for me, but we're looking at hundreds, possibly over 1,000, and I'll want to get 2 copies - one for our application and one for our solicitor's files so she doesn't have to photocopy them all (and charge us more).

    This would be so much easier if we could do this with all the electronic copies.

    I also wish Mozilla would hurry up and OK an update to an addin for the Thunderbird email program that allows you to save emails in a folder to PDF files with a few clicks - it doesn't work since they released Thunderbird 60, but the developer's fixed it, released the new version to Mozilla, and is waiting for them to publish it on the updates server.

    Is it something you're going to have to do again in the future MBW?
    Could you justify buying a mono laser printer?

    You could always resell the printer on eBay after you'd finished with it I suppose.

    *plinky music* Thank you for your patience - your call is important to us.*plinky music*

    If it was that important to you, you'd have more people answering the sodding phones.

    I was going to log in and post yesterday but I could not be doing with that troll that was about

    Is it just me or does the 60 seconds between posts seem to take longer on a Sunday

    My kitchen was supposed to be finished on friday but it's not. Whilst I'm very pleased that it's being done I thought 5 days would've been long enough.
