kitchen tables, gardens, football and work...

New kitchen tablesIt's been a busy busy week so far... there's no such thing as boredom where we live!

My only day off work this week has been Tuesday - and what a day... we've bought a new pair of kitchen tables (the old one's a bit impractical) and carried out the next stage of the garden. Hopefully the pebbles (and forthcoming bench and planters) will provide an attractive place to sit out; we've also covered the upper tiers with black plastic to inhibit growth of weeds, so we can ultimately turn it into a little vegetable bed or something.

We want to clear the patio after that - there's an overgrown hedge that needs cutting right back, and then we'll put up a fence, to more clearly define the side and make it a more pleasant (and buzzy insect-free) place to sit out. That's a couple of months away, though, perhaps.. when I've got my breath back!

chavflags!The football's been an excellent listen on the coach home, but so far I've managed to sit through all the England matches, for what they're worth; it's always deeply disturbing viewing.. it's not in their style to win with confidence! (And no... that's not my car)!

At work, I'm still working on groovy spreadsheets (of doom) - I'm undecided whether to integrate it with MySQL (which would require its own installation) and Microsoft SQL (of which we have quite a few servers).

The weekend's approaching, though - a day of shopping and tidying tomorow, followed by a visit to friends in the afternoon.. then my podcast partner Trev's coming down to attend the last day of the Wireless festival with me.. I'm quite looking forward to an afternoon of music, but I've got work on Monday - it comes round so soon!

Link of the day:

  • zwok-game.com/en_GB : This game comes with an addiction warning; it's "Worms" meets Tanks, and is interactive with other players. Brilliant (as ever, I'm syzygy).
