My emails

February 9th, 2014 · Comments Off · Life, Technology

Huge apologies to anybody who has tried to contact me by e-mail on the old Skuds@blueyonder address in the last four or five (or maybe more) months. I didn’t read your e-mails. Here’s the thing. I decided to use my gmail more because it was dead easy to set up on my tablet and phone. […]

A slight mistake from Sky

July 17th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Life, Politics

I saw something hilarious on Sky News earlier. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be on YouTube yet. I’m sure it will be soon thoough. I’m equally sure that Sky News won’t be repeating it like they do with all their other interviews. Not in its entirety anyway. They were after some opinions on the G4S […]

Time flies at the Crawley Observer

October 26th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Life, Politics

Breakfast was made much more amusing today courtesy of the Crawley Observer and what the youth of today would no doubt call an epic fail. In such a busy environment as the Obby offices maybe it does only feel like a few months since May 2010…

You’ve got mail

July 31st, 2011 · Comments Off · Life

I have a very bad habit.  I sometimes don’t open post for months.  The thing is that every bill I have to pay regularly is on a direct debit so anything that looks like a bill is really just a statement of account requiring no action other than filing or shredding. When I do open […]

No comment

June 29th, 2011 · Comments Off · Technology

It turns out that I effectively turned off comments here when I upgraded WordPress the other day. I forgot that the captcha plug-in I use always screws up when I upgrade WordPress and I have to de-activate and re-activate it to make it all work again. I always forget.  I expect I will forget next […]

Blind, deaf and stupid

May 26th, 2011 · Comments Off · Life

I already knew my eyesight was getting worse as I get older but obviously my hearing and thinking are plummetting too. Just tonight I cameout of the supermarket and went to get in the car.  My first thought was “bloody hell Jayne, when were you going to tell me you put a huge dent in […]

The road to Wembley

January 10th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Life

Crawley Town’s FA Cup road might not go all the way to Wembley, but tonight they discovered that it will at least go as far as Torquay.   It would have been good to get a ‘glamour’ tie against Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal or someone like that (but please not West Ham!)  but on the other […]

Alarming inability

June 9th, 2010 · Comments Off · Life

I have a licence to drive cars.  It will also allow me to drive pretty large vans and minibuses.  I can operate computers with some confidence and figure out the various combinations of settings and buttons to do all sorts of things on hi-fi separates.  So why do I have some sort of dyspraxia when […]

Kicking myself

April 28th, 2010 · Comments Off · Politics, Technology

When I get home from work each day and fetch the day’s stack of emails my normal routine is to go through them quickly and delete all the obvious spam and junk.  Then I go through the junk mail folder and extract any ‘real’ mails that have found their way in there. After that I […]

Busting a nut

April 9th, 2010 · Comments Off · Life

The decorating is done, with minimal damage.  The emulsion should come off the kitten’s face eventually.  The only significant casualty seems to be my bass guitar.  It was propped up in the cupboard and allowed to fall to the floor, strings down, which broke the nut. Only one end of the nut, so three strings […]
