Don't book swimming for Monday if you intend to go Tuesday, monkey boy (I was sure I booked today but the receipt reveals the full depth and depravity of my booking incompetence).

Now I have to walk up the bloody hill with the 100-step climb twice as punishment.

We’ve just watched the first two episodes of Line of Duty S6. Well watch two episodes tomorrow evening and then the final two on Sunday evening. Well that was the plan. We’re going to have to be content with watching on episode on Sunday and then have to wait a week for the finale.
We started watching Line of Duty S6 too bloody soon!!!!!11!!!1! :'( >:(

You will find that you need not tear out your hair because your game mod is not working, as long as you check the whole log file rather than just the end.  That way you will learn that "spawn_ratio" and "spanw_ratio" are not the same thing.

My air filter started making weird noises. So I took it apart to clean.

There's a nut in there holding the fan assembly together.

Guess who didn't notice it was left hand thread. In trying to undo it, I crushed the assembly...

Whole thing written off.

Bugger.

Fortunately for our numpties, all the Icebreaker and Assos survived being boil washed. Or they would have been sent an expensive bill.

That washing machine went on to have a full meltdown, with indoor rain from the condensation.  I think The Hobbit put it on a delicates wash or something, and its bitty little microcontroller couldn't cope.

Impressively, the landlord sent someone round to scratch his head at it, which is how I spotted the condensation forming on the *hot* feed hose.  Having swapped the hoses, I was able to persuade him to delay returning it to its cubbyhole while I scrounged up a marker pen and scrawled a warning to future generations on the wall beside the taps.

Same machine that I extracted a pair of tiny Y-fronts from the drain pump of.  We never worked out if they belonged to The Hobbit and had been subject to too many inadvertent boil-washes, or if they were genuine child's grundies courtesy of the machine's previous owner.   :hand:


As a result, I'm mildly nervous about our current machine with it's all-digital control panel and lack of an accessible SCRAM button.

If the washing machine had been fed with the hot and cold reversed, the full meltdown could have been caused by trying to cool down but just adding hot water.

That was my theory, too.  Though it doesn't readily explain how it (at least appeared to) get hotter than the hot feed water.

Fortunately we buried it in a concrete sarcophagus and moved to Yorkshire.

Mr L is partaking of a six-year overdue reshelving of books and.  And DVDs and Stuffs.  In alphabetical order.

Divvery #1.  Where is my copy of Ben Aaronovitch's Foxglove Summer?  Moreover, where is my copy of Ian Banks' Stonemouth?  Getting things wrong at this stage could have Major Repercussions.

Rnser:  They are on the shelf over there <<<< which you utterly failed to notice when extracting unsorted books from the TPsOC yesterday :facepalm:

Divvery #2:  What is that DVD-shaped object on the floor by my left foot?

Rnser:  It is Hvarf/Heim by Sigur Ros and needs to be filed at the left end of the top shelf of South Ivar 1.  Place it on shelf.  It falls down the back.  Grovel on the floor to retrieve it.  Repeat x3 then notice it should go AFTER Sherlock, which is a big fat box set and thus stable enough not to indulge in lemming-like plummeting from an altitude that even Mr L cannot reach save with arms at full stretch above his head.

Has a nice sit down and a cup of Brown Drink before doing battle with the letter “D”

Edit:  Have reached “M”.  Notice that the giant space at the bottom of South Ivar 2 can be partially filled by the oversized boks on East Ivar 1.  Which means moving some of “B” and all of “C-L”.  :facepalm:

Bah!  Paper cut on one of my fingers, in just the place for the edge of the cut to catch on things.   Smurf coloured plaster on finger & now my Apple trackpad won't recognise that finger.  Luckily I have 4 others.

4 trackpads? Seems a little excessive...
