Start of 2018 New Years Bank Holiday

2018-01-02 14.49.38After collecting an online order, I went to my favourite Chinese restaurant Mii&U and had a big bowl of Korean Soup.
When paying I asked if I could take a fortune cookie – Picked a red one; but it was attached to a green one so I got two.
When I opened the red one there was two cookies inside; so now I’ve got three.

Emptying my garage and conservatory

I have a gentleman who used to be my neighbour. He comes when I text him to collects all of my PC related rejects. The charity he is involved with regularly sends lorry loads of stuff to somewhere in Africa. It is nice to know that my rejects are not just being flogged on; but actually being re-used.

He came today to pick up: 7 boxes, 3 touch screens till monitors, a couple of till card-readers, 3 dead PCs, 1 laser printer, 1 dead printer and lots of power leads and this and that’s.

My garage and conservatory are now looking rather empty and I can start tidying them up.

I will get rid of more on “Facebook Marketplace”, some for sale and some for free; the more the better!

I checked what would go by advertising “11 mostly white pillow cases” for free, they found a new home within 24 hours. Not bad at all.

Hygge – a Danish word for the Dictionary

There is a new buzz word for the English dictionary and it is the most wonderful word and situation in the world.
It is HYGGE.

I went out today and purchased a little book called “HYGGE – Comfort and Food for the Soul” as I just had to see what the unknown author (I can’t find the name anywhere) had to explain what HYGGE is. I had to smile at the cover that used 10-12 word just to try to translate it and 10 more words to define it.

What can I say HYGGE is just that very hyggeligt.

So I can only say to all my friends and followers have a lovely HYGGELIG New Year eve

My lovely old Tassimo has now moved to a new home

tassimo 1I have been trying since Christmas to sell this coffee machine for only £15 but totally in vain.

First I tried on Gumtree – absolutely no response.

Second I also placed a post on eBay – the same – no takers!

So yesterday I got fed up seeing it on the windowsill and posted it for free on Streetlife, and this morning it has finally departed from my house and sight.
