Well... cleaner.

(That's a half-quote from a Disney film; guess it and you win a cookie.)

This weekend was vaguely productive. We had to go out on Saturday to pick up some bits of shopping as we have a freezer full of various fish-like products and very little else. Managed to get a very nice half-leg of lamb for about a fiver for Sunday lunch.

Midway through Saturday the attic door was rattling again because of the wind, so I constructed a make-shift draught excluder from a couple of pillows. Seems to have worked, amazingly, and hopefully the heat won't escape through the gap at the bottom of the door now...

In other news, if there are any other Council employees on my f-list who happen to have a Council ID pass, you can get 20% off at Cafe Rouge by flashing it, until July 2009. Nice. :) Typical Council, though - they put a poster up in the Council House and that was it. Luckily someone from Legal spotted it and circulated an email. ;) (As Rob put it on Friday: "Does anyone actually work at the Council House? And I use that term very loosely...")

My birthday is very very soon and seems to have snuck up on me. Ordinarily I make the first Saturday post-birthday my drinking-with-friends day, but I'll be in London. I am provisionally announcing the next Saturday (25th) as the drinking-with-friends day, but I'll announce it properly nearer the time or when I've decided if I can be bothered or not...

Some messages:

jackiesjottings - I didn't get chance to send your stuff on Saturday but I'm going to find / make a box tonight and go to the Post Office tomorrow, so it should be with you very soon. :) I haven't forgotten!

thefleshfailure - Judging by train times, it might be easier if we meet up before the show instead of after on the 18th. We'll be getting in just after 11.00am so I would suggest about 11.30am? Just let me know where's best for you to get to and we'll make our way over there. That gives us three hours instead of about one, given we'll have to find food and stuff after the show...

I think that's about it.
