Mrs Who?

This evening I have purchased the Christmas 2 week edition of the Radio Times. After a quick flick through I discovered - and complained in an irritated fashion about - the fact that BBC2 on Christmas day has 2 programmes on at prime time (9pm and 10pm) that we watched just last night. Immediately I started to gurn and chunter and winge about 'repeats' and 'license fees'.

It was then with abject horror that I realised I had turned into Mrs Middle-class Middle aged Twat from the home counties.

Please somebody shoot me :)

Crapberry


I have just ordered my new phone. Apparently my contract phone was due for an upgrade about 8 months ago.  Shame that Vodaphone neglected to inform me of this (..yes - I know - it's my responsibility to remember these things - but I have all on these days remembering what day it is). Anyway I have ordered a Crapberry. I had one before when I worked within the realms of madness and people would send me shitty e mails at stupid o clock telling me off for being crap at something - and I vowed never to have another one. But my life is much calmer now - and my e mail traffic consists mainly of love messages from my beautiful daughter, and 'hi - how are you doing?' messages from old friends, together with e mails from Posselq during the day...all of which are lovely to receive. I also get "spend more" e mails from e bay and Amazon - non of which I mind because I tell myself that these people are my friends(!).

I have also noticed that a lot of my facebook friends are updating their status's via blackberry - and I figured I'd get myself a piece of that action!

It is also 3G which means that it will work up here in Sheepsville. Oh yes - my contract is better and cheaper - ie more minutes for less spondoolies. It also has free web browsing which means I can google  the answers when I'm stuck at the pub quiz - which is NOT CHEATING - oh no - it's called 'being creative'.

It's arriving on Monday. It'll be three years on Friday before I've worked out how to use it :)

Jesus

A soap in the shape of Jesus was being sold by BHS. A catholic couple complained. Not because the soap was in the shape of Jesus - but because the writing on the box said that the soap would 'Wash away your sins". Classic! The product has now been withdrawn!

Winter

The winter is well and truly here. Yesterday my car was white over with frost when I went to set off for work. Short days and long nights, chilly mornings and freezing evenings.  It's nearly Christmas and that is always a time for reflection for me. Another year has passed and a lot has changed in the last twelve months. Some good, and some not so good.

Can't wait to see what next year brings.....
