  • I had forgotten about nail oil, SpinningJen! I am glad my advice has been well received. I have been doing my nails for nearing 30 years, so am a bit of an expert. I definitely love my vanity. In fact, I gave myself a French manicure this morning. I didn’t do a full French manicure, but I did follow the above steps and used base coat and two clear…[Read more]

  • There will always be bullies: and I don’t want to be one of them. They take advantage of kindness and are very selfish. I am nice to everyone. The mistake I made with Michael I won’t make again. Michael had been a kind, dear man, yet I was short with him: he didn’t deserve that. No one does. But – again – I did not bully him. In fact, the club we…[Read more]

  • As usual I have drunk my morning caffetterie coffee. I have also put on a load of laundry and am airing out my apartment. I gave myself a French manicure this morning, too. I have also been browsing* the Internet, as I do.

    Have a peaceful Sunday, everyone.

    *Using the term “surfing” [the Internet] is old and tacky.

  • The main part of the desk is done! The instructions were confusing at first, but I’m becoming familiar with the parts and finding it much better at step 15 out of 27. 🙂

    I’m going to tidy up the kitchen and then take my walk before resuming the work. Best to get fresh air before the day gets away from me! And then I’ll have to make room for the…[Read more]

  • I have to remember to buy some salmon to bake in the oven – the middle guy is now interested in foods that lead to more serotonin. Look what happens when we research while finding that a certain occupational therapy exercise isn’t working well… (Therapressure is what we’d been trying, and it’s supposed to trigger serotonin release, but it was…[Read more]

  • That’s exactly what my dad gave me!  Thanks for reminding me of the name, Jen.

  • My dad bought a Commodore 64, so that was my first exposure, when I was a young one. I think I had a chunky used IBM laptop by college, but it wasn’t any more useful than my typewriter (which I miss). Shared computers otherwise, including desktops with Linux. Then I got a laptop all to myself in 2006. By then, the Internet was my social hangout…[Read more]

  • The kids are all done with their cuts, but I’m going to grow mine out again. I went from long-ish (midway down my back) six years ago to shoulder length, then to a bob. I think I’ll go with shoulder length again and get used to it.

    Friday night, I unpacked the parts for a desk but decided to tackle the assembly in the morning. Instead I watched…[Read more]

  • I had something very similar recently Kitty but using smoked haddock. It was delicious!

     

  • I had similar – An Amstrad 1512 IBM clone with 512 K of memory an twin floppy drives when I did my Open University course. That was the machine I learnt much of my programming on. In those days, at work, a PC would be the centerpiece of any office and almost be worshipped (or cursed) 😀
