"Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone" (Pablo Picasso).

That electricity bill can wait until tomorrow. I'm also at ease with not putting up that shelf. (J/k 🀣)

Gloria and I went to Buckingham Palace but the Queen was out.

Never mind.

Getting in is like going through airport security and that gave Gloria and one member of staff much amusement.

My belt buckle and my jacket were both sending the metal detectors off like crazy. For a moment, I thought I would have to take all my clothes off to prove I wasn't armed.

Starbucks consoled us both with coffee on the way home.

Don't men matter when it comes to childcare?

mamas & papas only bother with lighting for the mamas, so it seems.

After acquiring Indesit, Whirlpool wrote to us last year to advise that a manufacturing fault with our tumble dryer could result in a fire. They wanted to fix it free of charge but also gave us the option to buy a new dryer at a reduced price :eyesroll:

They also wrote that I hadn't registered the dryer in the first place. I pointed out to Gloria that if I had not registered the dryer they wouldn't have had the correct name and address.

So, they come out to modify it last week. The result? It stopped working the next day.

I've attached a photo taken half an hour ago. This was following this morning's attempt to fit a new motor. The motor they tried to fit earlier this morning...didn't work!

Within the last ten minutes, a new motor has been fitted. The tumble dryer is back in business. ο»Ώ

Yesterday, +David RouthΒ posted about a really bright terrible shirt. I wrote that I would wear it to work.

I sometimes wear very bright shirts. As it happens, I was at my Mum's bungalow yesterday, wearing a very bright shirt.

Please excuse the stupid smiles. I wasn't feeling entirely serious when I took these selfies.

I'm getting low on vodka which probably brings an end to my recent vodka martini experiment. As Jack Nicholson might say to me, "You can't handle vermouth!"

Android Pay https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.walletnfcrel&hl=en_GB has been getting me a little attention.

My credit card company emailed me and said that I could sign up with my card. This was a fortnight ago and since then I have been paying on contactless card readers everywhere with my phone. There I am, in my mid forties impressing all of tech savvy teen shop and restaurant assistants with my really cool 😎 way of paying.

"Did you just pay with your phone?" they ask.

"It's Android Pay," I say, nonchalantly.

"I've never heard of that before."

I smile and walk off into the sunset. ο»Ώ

I spent the weekend ripping down my old shed and putting up a new one. I've actually still got to bang in a few tacks to secure the roof felt at the back but it's now functional.

The spiders were very startled when I pulled down the old shed. One little spider lady kept running backwards and forwards across the old shed floor as if shouting out, "What's happening? What's going wrong with our World."
