Well that's one parcel arrived (thank goodness as its a birthday present for this weekend) and I've ordered a few Christmas gifts which is going to mean many many trips to the Post Office to collect parcels (wouldn't it be nice that when you ordered things you could specify a day for delivery? I would happily say to everyone on the street "hey order all your parcels to be delivered on Wednesday as I'm in all day then and I'll sign for them all and we're sorted").
Can you remember about five weeks ago I mentioned the noise of haemorrhaging water running through the pipes at home? Every week I've had a phone call from Yorkshire Water letting me know that the engineer hasn't been able to visit this week due to the high work loads. I know (well am 99% confident) the water isn't leaking on my property but aside from the fact that a neighbours house might be about to float away I am rather entertained they advertise how they're trying to reduce water waste...
We've cut our leakage levels by around 50% since 1995, but we still plan to reduce it by another 10 million litres a day by 2020.
... I hope they respond to other leaks faster than they are attending to this leak!
Anyone fancy a cup of tea? Despite the heating being on the house feels so cold (damp clothes drying: one day I will get that tumble dryer I was promised three years ago) I must be keeping PG Tips in business!
PAT: If you want a giggle! We have our dogs Christmas stocking hanging up (hand made) and my advent calendar stockings hanging up. Only trouble is that my partner who brought me the calendar stockings hasn't actually filled them!! So in my house all our decorations are just... socks. Its not feeling very festive (I don't like the decorations going up too early, too much to dust).
