Apparently not, they have to be collected by a "named person" from the surgery.

A yukky smell appeared in the kitchen a couple of days ago. We searched high and low and couldn't find the source.

Then Pol told me she had spilt single cream in the fridge.

Some had run down the drain and into the evaporator tray on top of the motor.

PEEE EWWW! The trays are a bugger remove as they are often clipped and glued into place. And they are not available as spare parts.

I had to ask Asda security for video from their car park, No joy as the cameras are all off for servicing.

I returned to my car with my shopping and heard "Excuse me, are you travelling alone?" I turned to see a very well-dressed guy in a flash car with dark windows next to mine.

"Yes I am" I told him.

"Then I have some bad news for you. A young lad came over to your car, pulled out a small knife, and prised something round off one of your wheels. I beeped my horn and he legged-it".

The tw@t had stolen one of the hub covers.

The council still hadn't called to fix the upstairs flush, so I called them, and they apologised as their contractor had marked it as "complete".

So they got the contractor to call and get the job done today. But their boss called and offered next Wednesday!

I told him we will be in lockdown as of Saturday morning until the following Saturday. No visitors or leaving the house.

So he will "try to find a plumber" and call back this morning.

Meanwhile, all of us here has to have a covid test 3 days before the missus' op next Tuesday. No-one has called to arrange them, so I'll to chase that too.

And on top of all that, the lad wants to get to Sainsburys today to exchange the gas bottles for his Sodastream.

The sleepers HoN ordered the other day arrived a week early this morning. They placed them on the driveway and HoN (and I) had to move them to the back garden. 31 - 3m x 195mm x 95mm softwood tanalised sleepers. And one hardwood one the same size, as they must have added it by mistake. That one took about twice as long to move as it weighed about 50kg not 30kg! Took almost all day to move them all.

One waterbutt has been almost totally emptying overnight. SO I have been attacking it over a couple of weeks, thinking it was the tap seal.

I was inside it earlier and saw a line of light.

A 3" split.

Patched with flexible waterproof glue.

Fingers crossed.

Nipped over to Aldi. As I came out, 2 small gangs of 18-20 somethings were kicking-off. It seems one lot nicked a motorbike off the other and then burned it "as a message".

Whatever way you come in to the city, it's always packed in both directions at rush hour.

Did you go via Gabalfa Interchange, along the A48(M) then turn off near the top of the long hill to the garden centre roundabout?

A tall guy, all in black with his hood up, kept walking past the house looking furtively about. After an hour of this, he dropped to his knees and started rocking back-and-forth similar to muslim prayer. He then started wailing. I called over but got no response, so I called the police.

20 minutes later, a policeman phoned to say that I was not alone in finding his behaviour odd, but he had vanished.

Today I am shopping.

I've had two tins of emulsion to paint the bottom of the walls in the living room upstairs for the last six years 😳 and I intended starting it the other day.
A week ago, I found the paint
I found the roller
Day 3 and I moved a tin downstairs
Day 4 and I stared at it. Thought how I'd have to move the furniture and move the dog.
Day 5, son visited so I didn't start it and told him not to move the furniture
Today I'm looking at it
Tomorrow I'm blood testing so can't do it
Wednesday,  nurses are due, can't do it.

It was a problem of sorts. The installer had run the power behind wall panelling and not screwed the RCCB to the wall, but stuck it with silicone mastic!

I took me ages to notice the huge lift that had recently been fitted (free) as a stairlift was not suitable for him.

Of course. No accidents since 1979 (black ice) and under 2,000 miles a year helps. Plus a car they all say is worth £50, but would cost me £5k to replace.

A neighbour pays that per month for a smaller car because he commutes (you have to tell the insurer) and has had several accidents and traffic fines.

Lidl, Sainsburys and Asda.

A car rammed a schoolbus a few yards behind me, I reckon it was the bus driver's fault as it passed me around 40mph in a 20mph zone.

Took Pol for her blood test. As usual, the entire hospital site was in gridlock, with parked delivery vans making it worse.

The "drive thru" testing spot was closed again, as it is "too cold for the nurses to sit outside". That meant I had to reverse out and met with 3 cars trying to get in. Pandemonium!

The prescriptions weren't ready, despite the text saying they were at 8:15 this morning.

The missus was alone for the booster, loads of no-shows.

Emptied the boot and gave the car a once-over. Service and MOT tomorrow.

Now I have the washing-up to do, and then the twins' accounts.

One of the new young couples have had scaffolding put up as contractors will be changing their wall-ties next week. So they have taken the opportunity to change the guttering themselves.

I saw they were about to replace a bracket at the same level, so went over to tell them that it needs to be higher, as the gutters always sagged at that point. They took my advice on how to do that using a tight string, and have now seen I was right.

Wait in all day for parcel . Apparently its coming by Yodel. So got up at 7am, zoomed the dog round the fields at breakneck speed. Tracked the parcel, its out for delivery. Got home and tracked, its being loaded? Ran her round the block so fast that she's dizzy and I'm in need of my inhaler.
Now it's estimated delivery today. The worst delivery company ever.

"I see you have a credit of £8.45, and that you last topped-up from £2.20 with £10 in September 2019".

Then I jumped to ASDA PAYG, 4p per text, minute or 1Mb. I just have to use it once every 180 days to keep it active.

The binmen woke me at 6:40, so I got up.

Defrosted the car and got the missus to the hospital by 7:15 for her op.

Did the shopping, unloaded it, then the hospital called to say the missus was ready to come home.

Collected her, put away the shopping.

And the missus just told me she has an 8:30 clinic to check her out tomorrow morning!

I opened a bank account for the missus today. But when I tried to transfer money to it, it wanted to send me an OTP (one time pass) to my mobile. But I had just changed numbers (from Virgin to ASDA).

So I went tried to change the number on their site, and it said it was sending OTPs to my new number, but nothing ever turned-up. So I spent 34 minutes in a queue to talk to someone. Even she couldn't do it!

I'll try again in a couple of days.

The car battery is fully charged. All the short journeys have been sucking the life out of it, and the new trickle-charger isn't up to the job. So I'll rig the smart charger to be run in the house, with the trickle charger leads fed outside. That means disconnecting the battery each time the car is out of use for a few days.

I finally figured out why the charger was not working on the car battery. Not only had the croc clip been torn off, but the copper inside the cable had stretched and snapped.

And I also finally found out why I couldn't chat to Santander once I was logged-in. It was the Opera browser thinking the chat button was a pop-up. So now the new phone is set and I got an OTP to transfer money to the missus' new account.

The prescriptions have been sorted. The GP sent out loads post-dated. One pharmacist, unknown to all the other staff, made up the orders and deleted the items from stock. So that made it look like they had been handed to patients. They weren't. They were sat in a cupboard with their "dispense today" dates tagged onto them.

He worked night shift for 30 odd years. He still has altered body clock sleep. But he always said that regular night or day shift were  easier than  changing shift patterns.

Whilst I was waiting, I found a 1 kg box of Crunchy nut cornflakes for just over a quid.

Aldi was alive with unmasked students.... and hardly any trolleys because another lot was stolen.

I need to ring currys

We bought a huge fridge freezer two years ago...
And now it's spewing water from the back of the fridge, out of the front. No drainage hole or evaporation tray.
They told me to defrost it and it will be OK.

Tried that, it's iceless so no.. It didn't work.
Have to keep taking the meat tray out and putting a towel in there.

It's ridiculous.
I gotta ring them again. It was bloody expensive

That's it.
There is a grill that runs along the very bottom of the fridge at the back behind the meat tray, so I'm assuming thats where the water comes from. But nothing I can clean out.
I know how a fridge is supposed to work.
But I've never seen this much water every two weeks.

Snap. I have an American fridge freezer and it's a sealed back. Just a grill running across the bottom of the back.
I had a drip on mine at the front on the floor just behind where the door shuts. In my case it was a bottle of juice in the bottle rack that was leaking.

Just been seeing on FB how many BG customers cannot submit readings  ::) how convenient to have technical issues. Their app hasn't worked since 15 of Feb for anybody and my in home monitor hasn't worked for months.
I sent them readings last week via messenger for my winter bills and I've took pics by phone this morning.

Seriously peeed off. Carers mot and blood test. They phoned me to go to surgery for this. I didn't request it.
Got up at cracknof dawn, ran the dog round the fields, got back  showered hair, face, all ready and went to Dr's. Got in there and nobody in, rows of empty seats and one receptionist.  Gave her my name and she said there was no nurse today, I should go to the partner surgery 3 mile away. I told her that I'm on public transport now and I've left him at home.
Then she asked if I could go tomorrow at 9am. Told her no. It's impossible to get there at 9am. Told her to tell them at the other surgery that I attended but they did not  :-\

Got a BIG nail removed from the new tyre. They reported that the rear hub threads are shot, so will need replacement at next MOT or brake shoe replacement.

We've had two leaflets from the same candidate. Honestly no idea who to vote for this time round. They seem too busy slagging one another off than saying what they will do themselves. Perhaps they are hoping for apathy.

Vote at some point. The Labour blurb says they have done "many wonderful things" for us, but none impact me or anyone I know. Plaid and the greens are hoping to get both seats as a "coalition" but they hardly get any votes here. Maybe the kids (16 and 17) have been brainwashed enough to give them votes.

I also have to get the Wi-Fi fixed. It's been dead since a firmware update 2 nights ago, but it's been impossible;e to get to talk to one of their techs.

Cut and edge the lawn, then do some tidying-up out there.

I also have chitted spuds to plant, so I have some digging to do.

A lot of strawberry blossom, so it's time to put down slug pellets. Most of the plants are not ones I planted, but errant runners and some from seed dropped by wildlife.

I've been trying to figure out a DWP letter about the lad's PIP claim.

It sounds like they can't review it as it was awarded by Tribunal. But it sounds like they will just let it run out in November and then expect him to start a new claim all over again.

Ordered a Morrisons through Amazon at 12.30 and its due to arrive at 2.50 . Superb  I might have to get rid of tesco who tell me one hour before delivery that lots  of my order are out of stock with no appropriate substitute.

I use Morrisons click and collect as the ciggies are far cheaper that way. Plus it means I don't have to trudge around with a trolley full of cat litter.

I still go into the store after picking that lot up though.

Our fridge freezer has gone kaput.

Had a care plan with currys and after a few engineer calls they've written it off and refunded us, plus £200.

So now I need to look at new fridges

Start new job on Monday, so off to Cardiff on Friday to pick up equipment.

I'm going to Admiral insurance.

Teach my dog a lesson. Every day, for the second walk, she does this thing where she runs from room to room giddy as I go to  put her harness on. She doesn't do it the first walk.

So I follow her like a fool, bend down to put it on her and she runs till I get annoyed and shout sit!!

She tried it today, and as soon as she ran, I put her harness back on the hook.
Tried her a second time, she ran, I put the harness away.

She s now sulking and I'm not giving in.  ::)

Yesterday, she was a fool putting her harness on so I put it back on the hook and she didn't go for a second walk.

Today, she saw the harness and stood still to have it put on and thus got her second walk . Result!

Earthed-up and netted the potatoes, topped-up the pond, repotted some volunteer shallots.  Next job is to clear the cat crap from the front garden.

The local Wickes hasn't got something I need, and won't be getting new stocks, so I've arranged a pick-up from another branch a few miles away. The ladies have decided they want to come with me as there are shops near there that interest them.

Finnally changed my screen from VGA to HDMI. So much crisper. At the same time I changed my mouse to a Trust Verto as I have been getting some tingling in my right arm.

I'm replacing the bulb on my oven. It's turning out to be harder than I thought with the holder right under the grill element  ::)

The glass cover of ours turned and turned, then I realised the whole assembly was turning and winding the cabling into a knot.

Look at my options to get to work tomorrow.

No trains between Pontypridd and Cardiff for 3 days.

So it's either.
2hours by bus with a bus change
1.38hrs by train then replacement bus
Or an hour by car, depending on traffic.
But having never driven into the city before, never mind used a large multistorey carpark... I'm not very keen on the idea.

New job is super stressful at the mo, as we've been put straight onto live calls with minimal training.
I actually regret leaving nights at sainsburys.

But the thought of a long bus ride is hell.

Can you take the train to Ponty then jump onto the bus to Cardiff?

There is a train replacement bus, which is the cheapest option..

Sprayed the gravel out front with bleach to hopefully stop the feral cat from crapping all over it.

Reconnected the car battery charger.12,7v, so it's all OK.

Lubricated the passenger electric window. It now opens and closes silently and doesn't jam.

Sprayed some weeds.

Two trips to the barbers, I forgot my wallet, and they are the only place I go that still takes cash only, so I had to come home after the cut and go back and pay

I heard a commotion after 10pm. The green bins had not been emptied, and I was told earlier that a gang of youths had knocked them all over on both sides of the street.

:grumpy:

I have prescriptions to collect at some point.
