Long day

August 13th, 2004 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

As you can guess from the title, its been a long day.

I was up at 6:15 so I could get down the station by 7:00 in time to renew my season ticket before catching my normal train.

After work I met up with Jayne in Crawley Town Centre so we could pick up some blinds for the kitchen – at the moment the windows are bare and everyone passing can (and does) look straight into the house. There are a couple of kids in the street in particular who are always staring in, which is a bit off-putting and annoying.

When we got home I put up some wall brackets in the kitchen for the microwave oven, and also for a portable TV. I was not too happy with the stability of the TV bracket though, and will probably take it down and move it to another wall at the weekend. At the moment it is fixed to a cavity wall and I don’t trust its sturdiness.

After those little jobs were done I started to unpack all my hi-fi separates from the cupboard so I could set it all up. That might sound like an easy, trivial job but it took ages. There is an amplifier and 5 inputs to it (plus inputs from the TV and DVD player), and 6 speakers to arrange and wire up together. I was only halfway through when I had to break for dinner. When I eventually finished I tried again to get Jayne’s PC to access the printer on mine. I still haven’t got it working, and feel sure I have missed something blindingly obvious. Maybe I was just too tired to think straight.

Anyway, having got all that done I have cleared away all the tools, boxes, piles of spare cables etc. and crammed them in the cupboard so that the room looks a bit civilised again, and now, after a refreshinhg shower, I am all done for the day, ready to go off to bed, but know I have to be up again in 4 hours…

I really do have a major lay-in planned for Saturday morning!
