Got post early today... BT bill... But not in my name or telephone number... but is my address.
The name on it has never lived here.. as the house is just over 3 years old and I know the first and only other family to live here..
Phoned BT and they said the number is live and connected to my address and has been since 2005... do I have a secret basement & tenant I do not know about?

 Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

BT rang the number and surprise surprise there was no answer.. Undecided

Said it'd be a 5 minute survey and all I had to say is YES.. PASS.. Don't Know.

I just said PASS to every question...lol  cheered me up.. 
Survey only lasted 2 minutes as he gave up...  Grin

Mystery solved...  the bill is for next door.. the other side of the semi.
I rang BT again to give them the address and make sure they contact the number to change the details.
Next door said they haven't had a bill for ages and that they have asked several times for the address to be corrected.

But does make you wonder why my address was given in the first place.. as that number was first used when the houses were built..  maybe they thought they were getting this house and jumped the gun with BT.   Undecided

All is quiet again, kids asleep Wifes looking for antique style mixer taps on ebay along with worktop, we are just about to change the kitchen in the house.  The current one is a horrible 70's job with those terrible aluminum strip handles which either fall off or draw blood often

The kitchen in my house is one from the 70's, dark blue faced chipboard with that horrible (and rather dangerous) aluminum handle on the edge.  Got the makings of a replacement kitchen of ebay for �82.  Thats what I will be doing for the next several weeks Shocked Taken 3 months to find suitable units without having to drive half the country for it.  Bidders on ebay can be absolutly nuts with their money sometimes though.  Highest price paid while I've been looking was over �900 - just for units Huh?
Will have to rebuild many of them, cant get away with changing the doors around as the old ones are an inch wider........it will take weeks!!!!

Just spent 2 1/2 hours in garage going thru about 14 boxes left of stuff still packed from move. Now know that most of it can be binned... especially as I have now found the most important bits.. Birth certificates and license.
Had to find the paper part of my drivers license so I can hire a van for work 2moro. Got to admit.. wouldn't be funny going in 2moro morning and telling them that I couldn't do the job I agreed to do.  Tongue
Luckily I do not have to pay for it or any fuel.. Tesco are paying for it all. I will be delivering goods between 15 stores from penzance to axminster and all between.

If I can swing it, might pop in and say HI ! to GT Gary if I've got a drop at Newton Abbot.
Gonna be fun as I know first run is Redruth Extra , drop off at Axminster.. then Exeter to Plymouth....
It's 2 hours to Exeter from me.. another half hour to Axminster.. if traffic is good.
So a round trip of 5-6 hours just on that run and got to get another in on way back ISH too.
Good thing is.. the hours they've given me I will only be driving for 3 days.. then 4 days off.. then 3 days in normal shifts then off for Halloween Meet.. Wink Grin

Unfortunaley no pick-up or drop off there..
Had to go get the Van.. or should I say truck.. DAF 150 Y reg. Slow or what.. Cry
1st pick-up was Helston.. not ready and no call to arrange for fuel.. finally left abot 12.30.
Then over to Lee-Mills , Devon to drop off.... caught in traffic all the way along south cost.
Then up to Illminster, then Axminster... finally back to Lee Mills to drop off.. with 2 cages for Redruth collected.
Finally get to Redruth 9.30pm ..home at 9.55. Not bad seeing as I started at 9am. Undecided

Todays toakes me to my own store & fuel up.. then to Penzance, St.Austell, Exeter,Honiton & back to Exeter..
I can see me changing that as 2 drops at Exeter... if I'm not collecting I'll go from St.Austell straight to Honiton and drop off on way home.. can use A30 for final run then..
Last night driving back along A38 from Lee Mills was real fun.. up,down bending all the time and not one street light..  Tongue
Oh.. top speed.. 64mph downhill. otherwise just 50-55mph.

Managed to get quite a lot of units changed so far in just a few days, kitchen is a mess though but still usable.  The end price is critical of course though, �82 for units, �5 ceramic sink (not counting the �10 I paid for one a few weeks earlier--it was cracked grr!)�18 for screws and plasterboard, �35 for caulk, Impact adhesive and screws, �6 for contact, �11 white silicone, �17 Roller Blind, �15 for paint..............My time and talent............Priceless Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Still to get, worktop, �31 for taps, �10 for worktop (Duropal 4.1 m), �41 for new extractor, �5 extractor pipe, �28 plus 160 miles in pinky for dishwasher, should have most if not all of the fittings Grin

Pics on the way soon of both the old and the new soon.

I finally got flash working well in Ubuntu Linux. Took another browser to do it but at last no more stealing my laptop to watch the latest episode of whatever.

Just in time for Ubuntu 9.1 to be released breaking everything again no doubt Tongue Sticking with it though and seriously tempted to install it in more stuff as more old creaky Windows break Grin

Also tempted by Windows 7 but not by it's prices

This week has been even longer, been stuffed with flu, aches, pains everywhere Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed  You can tell by my lack of posting, no doubt.  It is going to take a few more days to get back to form.
I've still managed to rip out all the old kitchen and put in the new, ran out of money though with the worktop and extractor still to get Undecided
Using old worktop still, does the job for now.
Hope you're all keeping well, looking forward to being back to normal, soonish! Undecided

Good... the coffers must be over full as they insist on giving illegals free housing a food, instead of the US & Aussie approach of just booting them back out.
When is Brown going?  As I still don't remember ever having the chance to vote him in as PM.


Good to hear you're up and about again Tom... you might just get the kitchen done in time from christmas. Wink

The only job other than sort out garage of stuff is to paint the hand rail on stairs... as it's open plan I'm still trying to get it done.. but 3 kids and a KIMBERLEY are always in the way..  never mind I'll get around to it one day. Tongue

I'm soooooooooooo not jealous...lol

Tell Nora I have ear defenders and earplugs if she needs any...lol
They're good enough for watching top fuel drag racing.. so should be great inside the house.
I used them once when the gas board were digging up the path outside my house when I was working nights.
Thay'd start the pnuematic drill up at 8am just as I was dropping off... then keep going all day til just before I went back to work.. for nearly a week. But using the defenders and plugs together I did manage to get some sleep.. even though you could feel them drill the path outside. Shocked

There's a full scale riot in here, Rene� is fighting with Ehtan and Elise for the PS2, Natalie has youtube blaring away and Dionne is trying as hard as possible to do her reading homework in the middle of it all (bless)

Nora is trying to have a kip somewhere (like that'll happen in this racket)
So a quiet day then...... you lucky sod...

I'm soooooooooooo not jealous...lol

Tell Nora I have ear defenders and earplugs if she needs any...lol
They're good enough for watching top fuel drag racing.. so should be great inside the house.
I used them once when the gas board were digging up the path outside my house when I was working nights.
Thay'd start the pnuematic drill up at 8am just as I was dropping off... then keep going all day til just before I went back to work.. for nearly a week. But using the defenders and plugs together I did manage to get some sleep.. even though you could feel them drill the path outside. Shocked
My question is this.......

                    .....Would those plugs and earphones, squeeze into Kims nasal cavity, to prevent the snoring on route to Clun?


Tut Tut lol I do not snore lol  Tongue Tongue

Only difference you'll notice when running veg is it's a liuttle lumpy ticking over when cold. But once up to temp you wouldn't know you were running veg apart from the smell.  Wink

The new bus is the first bus I've had that doesn't do that, the silver one did it loads (to the point of stalling) but much less after I cleaned out the tank t-bag Grin

Veg+cold engine can cause hunting apparently, can also cause lazy acceleration when you least expect it Shocked

The 85% ish veg did make it a bit lumpy this morning until the engine got warm, it wasnt bad...I've heard Pugs sound far worse....with no veg Shocked  Its fantastic to see the nil difference factor on how they run on it compared to diesel.  Done my 125 miles round trip, was back at 12, having done the school run too Grin
