Googling 'birds with hands' then hitting the image button.
I recommend it. You will not be disappointed

Oh bollox, don't get Pingu started.
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

SFA, that's what I'm doing.  Ought to be out in the workshop but it's too cold.  Don't got no oughts, anyway, I'm retired.
But they never got to Carcassonne.

Ripping an actual physical CD.
Supplied with a language course, to be used on a PC with no CR-ROM drive.

So to my older PC which does have such a drive.
It's been so long since I did that, the physical drive in the PC was gummed shut and needed to be gently prised open.
And windows has been re-installed since last time too, so had to re-install EAC.
And then add the LAME MP3 encoder.
And then un-block the LAME exe which windows had kindly blocked for me.

Finally. A pile of MP3s to copy onto the target PC.

Sitting with a cat on my lap that must not be disturbed listening to the toilet failing to stop flushing and needing a bit of a pee.

When you finally get up to the bathroom to change your clothes (and bathe the scratches) check if the rising ball arm gets stuck on the side of the siphon on the way back up - ours does (and we haven't even got a cat).  Good luck!

I appear to have turned into the kind of mother who gets up at 6 to prepare vegetables on Christmas day.

Our push button bottom fed siphons tend to do this. If one of these just repush the button and it will break the siphon.

Hah!  I put the cheesecake I made the other day on the top shelf of the fridge to consolidate.  Opened the door next morning expecting the wonderful aroma thereof to come wafting down, but instead found myself with my nose practically into a lightly-clad dish of left-over sprouts.

Much as I enjoy sprouts, :sick:

Having my first beer of the night and researching our next oven while I wait for the next item in the dinner plan to need attention.
