Thank you to D'Design for the graphic today.
Good Morning, I was surprised to see it is over a week since I wrote anything in my journal it has just been one of those weeks. As you may remember we bought a new DVD recorder last week with a build in freeview box. When we bought it we told the salesman in the store our requirements. We wanted one that we could get a top up card for as we wanted to get rid of Sky but Stuart still wanted Eurosport which covers the cycling and Biathlon both of which are his passions. We tried all last week to get it working but then I noticed it did not have a slot to take a topup card. On Friday last week we plucked up courage and took it back to the store.(Must say here that the store changed it no bother at all). We then bought a DVD recorder the same make as our tele and a separate freeview box complete with the slot. After more lying on the floor and every permutation we could think of we still could not get it to work so we have surrendered and between 12 and 2PM today the engineer is coming to install all the bits and pieces before Stuart and I either go off our heads or get a divorce, it has been that bad. There are so many scart leads coaxial cables and power leads behind the telly you do not know where to start. It has been keeping us awake at night, for me that is not a new thing but for Stuart who sleeps very well it is most unusual. So hopefully all will be well after today.It just show what can happen when the salesmen thinks he knows his job and does not know as much as we do.
It has been great weather for this time of year for the past week. We still have Dahlias flowering in the garden along with summer bedding that I just don't have the heart to pull out. When we were out on Monday to St Andrews we saw many hanging baskets still looking good . We had a run down to West Sands there and sat and had a picnic in the car, for us but there were people on the beach and in the water brave them, the weather is good but that water is always cold Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. The trees up here are still green in the most and I am waiting for some good colour to appear will just have to be patient. Well I think that its for just now will let you know how we get on with the engineer later today. It will be great not having to stay up till the wee small hours to see the end of a film etc. as we are not used to staying up that late. Bye for not catch you later.
Sara made this for me. Thank you.
