No mail…

Three weeks I’ve waited

Waited for my email

Email to be fixed..

Fixed, new phone

Phone number the same

Same…. No email

Email gone, lost

Lost – now connected

Connected, but no email!

For three or four weeks I waited.

The technician was ill

It’ll be fine now

He said this morning…

Now I can send,

But not receive…

Fired up my PC.

3800 emails!

NO!

Parking

I just realised my parking pass is due to expire and I’ve only just realised it. In the past out council used to send out a reminder. No more. They have closed the building where you could apply for them in person. Now the choice is either via email, or by post.

The postal service only has a 74% next day delivery rate, and there is no assurance that it will arrive in time.

My email is not working yet. I’m booked to get it done on Monday (long boring story, the repair man has been ill). But not everyone has email addresses. Not everyone with a car is online.

So I rang up for the address to send my information to. It’s a PO box, meaning there is no physical place for me to hand deliver my documents to. If it goes to a PO box, then the council courier service needs to sort the mail and deliver it, meaning there is another time delay added into the mix!

Better get my email sorted out!

Quiz night on Zoom

That was hard! After winning last time we could only come third this time with devilish questions.

Who knew a Cria is a baby Alpaca? Not a baby Llama by the way.

You had to know the scores on Scrabble tiles for heavens sake. I thought William Shakespeare had a score of 30? it was 32.

We came close, 43.5 against 48. Some inspired guesses, but who knew the train line across Australia is called the Gan, which in turn is based on the old name for camel trains?

These questions keep getting harder!

Drawing to scale

Oh I wish I’d done technical drawing at school. I’d know how to draw perfect circles and how to indicate cross sections. Yes I can draw around things, like this watch, but the line is very wobbly, then I wanted to draw an inner circle, but again its approximately a circle….. I’m a bit disappointed to be honest. I must find out if there is a particular template I can buy. If I’m going to learn, I need the right equipment. Another thing I need to invest in, and maybe an illustrated guide to technical drawing?

Jigsaw clock

Argh! My hubby got a clock as a Christmas present, for age 7 and above. It didn’t really have instructions and after half an hour of looking at it he asked me to help. I managed to put the major bits together ( it’s meant to slot together). But like a furniture kit, there are a lot if bits left over. I also think it needs glueing because a lot of it is a bit loose. It’s made of balsa wood and a few bits have snapped off! It has a little pendulum, but it’s only pretend.

It does have a real electric clock inside, with proper fingers etc, so if I can wangle it together we will have a useful clock. Tick tock……

Prevarication

IMG_20191120_223735_optimized

Why can’t I get things done?

I think and think,

Decide, then change my mind.

I wait till the time seems right,

Then miss acting on it.

Why? because I spend time thinking.

Then I think again…….

Too much to do, too little time?

But if I just started early…

Wasn’t so desperate to be perfect.

Took less thought and acted sooner.

Maybe then I could

Get

Things

Done!

But now…

I’m not lazy, not crazy, just hazy…

Stuck!
