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

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.
I've dusted off all those old bottles and set them up straight

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!

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

The sprouts got their revenge here, accompanied by Foul Norse Swearing.  Professor Larrington now has an ElastoplastTM on her finger.

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:

I am currently being force fed 'Radio Builder'.  More specifically, 'Radio Scaffolder'.
About 6 houses away, but very ,very loud.  Plus the constant noise of their ratchet tools. Which is probably why the radio is so loud.
Must be hell for the poor sods next-door.
Admission.  I'm actually not that fussed about cake.

Putting off sub-desk grovelling.  New PC in Estate Office needs to come downstairs for addition of parts.  More than once, coz I want to get the disks working prior to faffing with Sound and Vision.  Oooh oooh electric blue.

This morning I chauffeured my Good Pal Penelope to Currys so that she could buy a cooker. It's the first new cooker she has ever bought, despite being into her 75th year. She didn't really want to buy it but her son was a bit ham-fisted when he last visited from Finland and somehow broke some knobs on the old one she was given about 40 years ago. Pen has a large murmuration of relatives descending upon her next month from different parts of the globe and feels that it is important that she has a working cooker.

After her Currys transaction I treated her to a coffee in a rather good coffee shop named Anke's. We shared a slice of rhubarb cake.

Waiting for UPS to deliver my parcel so I can go to Mr Sainsbury’s House of Toothy Comestibles.  A four-hour window is a bit of a Rubbish when:
  • shite couriers can give you a one-hour window, and
  • you've got other Stuffs to do

Looking for undershorts. Something without the elastic that sits right under the sore bit after a long ride.

Sitting around at the start of LEL and occasionally waving a languid arm to direct riders to registration.
