Second of today's longer posts

Crisps, chocolate and cake for lunch again today - so much for Steve enjoying cooking and family walks!  Steve says one thing but totally avoids doing them!


Just waiting for our tea to arrive... real proper Burger King at last!  Yaaaay!


First of the twice a day long blog posts

Well, we've lost all our UKTV channels and there's a 10 (read 30 in reality) minute wait on the Virgin support line.

I haven't got a clue how much the strop was about, but 4 million Virgin customers aren't happy this morning and if Virgin had just put their prices up by £1 a month, they would have had happy customers and still been able to pay an extra £4 million a month to UKTV!

They had better intend to invest the savings into making more stable internet and employing more staff at their call centres!

Walked and fed the pup... no poo on the walk and she was really starvey hungey when we got back!  She got her nose into her food bowl before I'd even finished emptying it in, bless 'er likkle heart!


Supplements taken.  The Calcium crumbs went everywhere and the Iron disintegrated on my tongue again, but the multi went down really easily for some reason, so I don't know what happened to make the first two misbehave!

Just taken me hayfever pill... run out next Sunday so I hope I've remembered to put more on the shopping order coming tomorrow!!

Second of the 2-a-day long posts

Should I put times on each of the posts or not?  Should I just leave it as having the dashes between what was, until this morning, an individual post?
 We're having Burger King meals for tea tonight 'cos Steve was paid for his week of work!  Yumsk!
We're at 92% with the virus scan, so as soon as that's finished I'll back everything up and shut down then put my likkle laptop on the floor so that it doesn't get damaged with the heat from me meal or the ice from the drink!
Virus free for another week, thankfully, just gotta back up everything to the external hard drive then I can turn the laptop off and let the battery cool down.
Burger King isn't accepting online orders again, so we're going with Yummies Kebab on Just Eat and I'm having a veggie burger, cheesy chips and a can of Dr Pepper 'cos I'm a pig lol

Going to turn me laptop off now until the morning... nite nite orl!

First of the long, twice a day posts!

Just taken the pup out for her morning stroll.  100% and no poo today. Fed her too, so she's sorted for the day now!
Virgin Media are going to lose so many customers and those who stay with them will be downgrading their TV package because as of midnight tonight Virgin Media customers are going to be losing all their UKTV channels for things like W and Really and Drama and Dave and Yesterday - basically all the chanels we watch so we and Steve's family and hopefully many more will be downgrading their TV package and Virgin will lose money.

You can still see them on the UKTV site though so all is not lost entirely... just the TV channels are now viewed online is all.

Steve's just done something with our telly that connects our TV to the UKTV site though, so hopefully that means we can still see the programmes we want to see on the telly instead of having to use our laptops!

This isn't even the first time that Virgin have screwed up... the same thing happened a few years ago but we had more notice about it then!

Apparently we still don't get W or Alibi on the telly version which are the only channels we watch and Steve's part way through watching a series on both of those and I want to be able to watch Masterchef when the new series start too, so maybe we do have to watch them on our computers after all!  😔

Not good, Virgin Media, not good at all.  👎
Supplements taken now... had to crunch up the Multi for some bizarre reason though.  Total grossness  😞

Just testing if I can save a draft

Just trying out to see if it saves a draft or not... if it does, there only needs to be one long blog post a day instead of the 3 that I've already posted this morning!

I can, so I'll try and remember to do a maximum of two (one in the morning and one before bed) longer posts from now on!  Hopefully that'll be more interesting than reading a couple of sentences per post!

Virus scan started too

I'm liking Thunderbird more than Windows Live Mail because it reminded me to set the virus scan going - WLM never did!

It's at 26% already too, so hopefully it'll be finished by lunchtime tomorrow!

Hayfever pill and supplements taken

Just taken me hayfever pill and 3 supplements.  Got 15 days left of the Iron so I'm guessing it's around that many Calcium too, then I'll be opening up my last bottle, and thinking about ordering more pills to see me through another year.

150% and a poo this morning!

The pup was eager to go on her morning walkies this morning and I would have been happy to come home after 100% of the walk, but our little girl kept walking so I followed her lead and she squatted down for a poo at 125%.

She got her measurements just right because if the poo was literally a couple of centimetres further out I wouldn't have been able to pick it up, but like the responsible owner that I am, I took the bag off her lead and nervously picked it up without falling over which was a major accomplishment for me!

We finished off the last 25% then came home and I was rewarded with a steaming mug of coffee, so I poured the last bit of Mitzi's food into her bowl, washed me hands and came to sit down.

I'm not intending to go any further than the bathroom any more today!

Hayfever pill and supplements taken

Just taken me morning cocktail of pills and they all went down pretty easily this morning!

Hash browns for lunch at last!!

Steve's "later" is definitely at least a week 'cos he's been promising me hash browns for the last 7 days but we had them at lunchtime today, so I'm gonna try and remember to use the "later" comment next time Steve asks me to do something!

Just gotta remember to do it now!  lol
