Our telly finally gave up the ghost at the weekend. By Monday, Mr. Java has a new wan ordered, will be ready for collection Wednesday. It’s the fastest ah’ve seen him make a decision in years, but he swears the football has nothing tae do wi it. Anyways, phones this morning tae make sure telly is there before we set off, tae Newcastle of all places…

“Wey aye Mrs. Java, ah’m sittin here lookin arit as we speak”…

Ah don’t know if ye’ve ever been in Newcastle drivin…they have a wonderful traffic system…all roads take ye intae the town centre and then they jist hit ye wi big signs sayin ‘no car lane’…so ah presume some great big hand is supposed tae jist come oot the sky and lift ye up and put ye somewhere else, but it didny for us, so forty six traffic violations later, we finally get tae John Lewis.

Every telly in the place is the size of a wee hoose, so ah’m a bit concerned at exactly whit Mr. Java has agreed tae…however…
“Here ye are Mr. Java, lovely new telly”
“It is indeed, but it’s not the one we ordered”
“It must be…”
“It isn’t!”
“Well ah’ll joost call wor manager – he’ll sort yas oot”

The ‘manager’ is six if he’s a day…..awfy sorry blah blah, don’t know how this could happen, blah blah…sure we can sort something oot…..bein six, he clearly disny realise that when ye’ve already gone through yer weans grow up, the UN's clamourin for yer negotiatin skills…so wi’ two hundred pounds off the price and a boxa dvd’s for wur inconvenience, we leave wi temporary telly and delivery promised for Friday….laugh.gif

Posted by: RonD 10th Oct 2007, 11:32pm

Hello Marion: When you say that dryer is a necessity, do you mean you can't hang out a wash, as in not allowed by a city bylaw? Here in Ontario, the provincial governement is going on about saving electricty in every heat spell and turn up your air conditioning and not to do laundry at peak hours etc. However, the ludricous thing is that in towns and city is a by law that you are not allowed to hang out a wash because of estetics (sp?) It really makes you wonder?

It seems to be a condominium law down this way, no hanging out your laundry, the result is we are using lots of electricity. You know that stuff that we're supposed to be using lightly (pardon the pun). Another no-no is you can't have a TV satellite!!! Condo living has some drawbacks.

Posted by: maryhillgal 22nd Oct 2007, 12:19am

Toerag - try and get ham bones/ribs or a ham hoch [don't know if that's how you spell it] or if you are really stuck try ham stock cubes. Bring your bones/ribs,hoch/ham joint to the boil and then let it simmer away for a few hours. Steep your lentils and split peas overnight [I always add split peas but if you don't want to then don't add them] then dice up your carrot, turnip and leek [potato is optional]. Bring to the boil then simmer until all the vegetables are soft. I leave it to cool and then put it through the blender. You can sprinkle with parsley [optional also].

Sometimes I buy a nice ham or gammon joint for boiling and the stock from it gives you a great pot of soup also. If it is smoked ham then I bring it to the boil, chuck out the water and boil it again because the first boiling is very salty.

Hope this helps you.

Posted by: maryhillgal 24th Oct 2007, 01:09pm

Aw the best Stuarty wae yer breast screening. I am going to the Western Infirmary today to see the 'hip man.' [Orthopaedics]. I was offered injections before but turned them down [I have bursitis in my hips]. I think today I will opt to have the injections as I am sick of the pain and the amount of sleep I lose because of it. I hope they work. I was reluctant to have them because they are steroid injections and I already take steroids for polymyalgia in my shoulders plus I have to take booster dozes of them when I get a chest infection. I'm not complaining because there are people a helluva lot worse than me but I hate putting stuff into my body because of side effects. Steroids help some things but cause a lot of others [weight gain, thinning of skin etc to name but two]. Anyway, as the song goes "Always look on the bright side of life!!"

Stuarty I don't envy, you as Breast Screening is painful but necessary.

I decided to start putting up the winter curtains today. Started on the sitting room and wore myself out as the curtains are very heavy, lined and double width as our downstairs windows are almost 8feet wide.. Of course I had to wash the windows again, as you can't put clean curtains up on dirty windows. smile.gif

Getting the valance/ pelmet even is annoying, and makes me wish for the days we had wooden pelmets. I put fancy clips on mine to give them a scalloped shape and because it looks nice. laugh.gif

No.10 Girl, I don't like iced doughnuts, just the sugary one's and I bought a bag of them, some Belgium Buns, and Fruit Square's. But there are some doughnuts left, so put the kettle on and help yourself. Yummy. smile.gif

Lass, the hand I hold the iron with is worn out. I had to iron the sheets because they have frills around the edges. I don't like creased frills. laugh.gif

Stuarty, Greigs the Bakers is down our Main St. and there is always a big queue in it. I'll get you a couple of your choice on Thursday. It's so cold I'm staying in doors 'till then, and do some of my knitting. smile.gif
