My weekend started by being robbed.
You know how it is, Friday night your knackerd from the shopping excursion. You crash on the sofa whilst other people unload the car of all the shopping.
You fall asleep and in the confusion the car remains unlocked.
A tugger comes along during the night to check for open cars and they invade your car.
You only find out the next morning when you open the boot and you find the organised boot is scattered. At first you don’t realise and you tidy the boot.
Perhaps a mishap by the people who unloaded your car.
You place things back in the box and close the boot.
Next you climb in the car and you wonder why the contents of the glove compartment is scattered on the floor.
Then you find the contents of you continence bag scattered on the floor and the penny finally drops and you realise you have been robbed.
I suppose it’s the perils of living in central London where people are hungry.
I spent today writing to the manufacture of a hard drive in China.
I tired to explain politely that the goods I had purchased didn’t work and could they help me.
That was another fools errand when I thought I could upgrade my laptop to no avail.
He who steals from another steals from himself as my Great Grandmother used to say.
Did you hear of the great deal for disabled people.
If you pay £40 you can have a man plug in a box to upgrade one of your TV’s to digital.
I questioned who thought that one up. Even if I wanted to upgrade my 35 year old TV or even my
18 year old one I ask myself is it worth the bother.
I would also need to upgrade my TV Ariel which is more expense.
I have 5 TV’s about to be made redundant.
Why doesn’t someone come round with a new TV for a nominal fee and take away the old ones.
I converted an old computer into a TV and it only cost £10 and a bit of effort.
I don’t know how well the Keyboard and mouse will survive the Kitchen but the 20" HD LCD screen is brilliant.
