What’s that? You thought I was gone forever? Why, no! It’s REFEBIMATE! Nah, FEBJANIMATE! No, it’s..actually, I’m not making February a thing, but once you get the habit, you can’t just give it up! I might not post every day (I had a crazy early night last night, so nearly I literally fell asleep halfway through a glass of wine!) But I’m still going to Get Stuff Done.
This morning, I wanted to listen to the radio in the living room. You can play radio channels through the sky box, but as I had j in the room, I couldn’t do that without him immediately shouting for BOBBOB! aka Bob the Builder. So I started streaming through my tablet, but the battery was low (I know. The population of Darfur just weep for me) and so I turned to a nemesis of mine – the stereo. Bought into the room after it was decorated in August and then never wired up. All those months, it had sat there. Useless. Dust-gathering. Literally neither use nor ornament.
Ladies and gentlemen, I wired it back up. Even the fiddly old-school speaker wires you need to twiddle to get in properly. It wasn’t even difficult, really, but it wasn’t done. And so I listened to a CD which I just casually grabbed from under the stairs without swearing, or standing on anything, or a hoover falling on my head, which was nice.
Then we embarked upon what will end up as tomorrow’s task, and very satisfying that will be.
