Ordinary (kinda) Days 2

Took a short time out to kick the washing machine as I still couldn't work out how to get the knob (not my cheaper half) to give me a cooler wash, so I had to succumb to getting Trevor to show me. I'm trying not to leave my carbon footprint in the world so much, although I thought the machine deserved a muddy one!

I noted that Adam (my youngest)'s head cold was getting him down. Worried that he was missing valuable time from his drama production (Disco Inferno) by way of moaning too much, I said I'd go over his lines ect, with him to cheer him up. Thought it a bit weird with the Kathy and Heathcliff characters and pictured strong winds and moors instead of dodgy clothes and mirror-balls. We ended up harmonizing to Foo Fighters 'Times Like These" instead which has nothing to do with the musical. Adam was a bit pissed when I told him that his voice actually sounded better with a bit of phlegm behind it!

Then I had a nice 'conversation' with a member of staff at my local bank when I realised that for the past three months I had been charged for being overdrawn while there was no record of it on checking my account online. They were suppose to waive a charge in August, so I think this is all a knock-on effect from that! I am waiting on a phone call back to see where the problem is lying. If only you could send punches down a phone line! Any banking experts out there feel free to help........

Then late evening I shouted at my older son who, for the past month STILL hasn't bought a router to go with his new laptop, as he preferred a vanity night out with the money instead. So the rows as to who gets on the computer (via modem) are still existing! At least I'm no longer scared as to what 'history' may pop up - or pop out!!

Apart from that - the usual!

With all this 'automation', stupidity still reigns, unfortunately.
