bought a bottle of "craft" gin yesterday, with one of those foil caps and a cork.  not noticing that I'd not fully removed the rip strip, I gripped the cork and twisted, slicing my fingertip on the sharp edge of the partially removed rip strip in the process.

my high-pitched yelp was enough to call swmbo from the living room, followed by a pithy comment "told you alcohol was bad for you"

So much for mother's ruin.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

In spite of putting gaffer tape over the button I managed to incinerate last night's dinner by accidentally operating the grill, thereby filling half the house with 'orrid stinky smoke again.  The only plus in the whole sorry business was that this time it wasn't fish.

I spent most of the morning trying to get the colour printer at work to print for me only to find I'd been sending my test pages to the black and white one. In my defense I was given the IP address for the black and white one and not the colour one that I'd requested.

Strove with might & main to open a plastic Wolfcraft box then hauled it over to the workshop threatening doom & screwdrivers; where, in the different lighting, I perceived the wide piece of sticky tape holding it closed.

I'm sure that when I reached up to grab my can of deodorant, I didn't so much as touch the clock that was sitting on top of the bathroom cabinet alongside it. And yet I must have done because a moment later...

Today I have mostly been researching new bathroom basins.

The bathroom clock now sits on the window sill.

My new, temporary, job requires me to either drive or train /cycle.

I decided on the latter, naturally. Bought a folder, for train reasons, starting to get into a routine. This morning I needed to swap bags as I need to take my laptop home. Bag duly swapped and off to work I went. Once at work I realised that the polo shirt that I had found out for work was in my other bag. Cue having to sit at work in sweaty, damp (it was raining too) cycling jersey and undershirt all day!

I am taking multiple ones in tomorrow, as emergency spares.
