Haven’t posted here in some time, since back from Corfu, I believe. So much for writing a post a day to improve my literacy skills…
Today is dull and gloomy, with a light drizzle that slowly, but surely, moistens one’s clothes; to the point where I can no longer tell whether it is sweat or just rain.
Start the morning well by making £90 on a toaster that was pulled from a skip. Not any old toaster, mind you. A six slice, Dualit. Polished stainless steel with white ends. Very nice. A bit of Brasso and oven cleaner later and I have a toaster that looks as good as new, and works well too. Thank you.
Over the years I have fixed many an iPhone. Usually, this consists purely of screen replacements. However, I have also replaced batteries and charging ports too, with a 100% success rate. Obviously, mum thinks I should become a surgeon. The point is that I have four or five old iPhones, from the 4S to 6S hanging around in my ‘man draws’. I think I will try to sell some of these too, only for parts, of course.
Of to Screwfix now, a shop that I actually quite enjoy being in. It’s simple, there is enough space for everybody and I merely have to write down what I want, instead of trying to have to explain. Buying sash locks and a new chisel, to prepare to be an Airbnb host.
My amazing girlfriend bought me a tent recently, too. I have not yet found a suitable opportunity to put it up. Hopefully, I will find some time today. I am really excited!
In other news:
- The local CFR scheme may be getting a ‘high visibility’ vehicle, basically a car that looks like a fast response ambulance, without the lights and sirens.
- I still have heard nothing from the NHSBT team regarding the stem-cell donation that I was found as a potential match for.
- Locals say that the weather is going to be amazing this coming Weds, Thurs and Friday in North Devon.
