Dremel: man’s best friend “no Dremel? most illogical.” ...and I dare say a woman’s too. Do you think ‘Dremel’ would make a fine name for a pet dog? I’m really speaking of the powered hand-tool bearing that brand. I’ve had mine for decades; I can’t recall now how it came into my possession - possibly… Continue reading Sunday’s Wrap: toolbox tips, the news, & a joy of kindle

Peep hole “for the want of technology, I could make me own ‘ole” It’s funny but there seems to be something amiss with the technical process at Medium, a hole in the paywall. Using a particular browser, it doesn’t recognise how many times I’ve visited and so allows me in. The way things are supposed… Continue reading That Midweek Feeling: browsers & books
I didn’t do a Midweek Post last week! Well, you can’t have it all. Time is running by. Or as Job put it, (chapter 7, verse 6); My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle, and are spent without hope.(King James version) DIY: don’t try this at home “okay, Lord, five more minutes playing catch… Continue reading Sunday’s Wrap: stress and food
Today I made another trip to the recycling dump. My cargo: the remains of the old kitchen units, including the sink (I couldn’t say this time I had everything in the back of the car bar the kitchen sink). It’s incongruous yet delightful to drive through the English countryside on a cold, dank Winter’s day,… Continue reading Boys in the car
A novel funny lady I haven’t seen the drama Wolf Hall, only a few brief clips and it looked sombre and tragic, but I have picked up Hilary Mantel’s second book in the trilogy, Bring Up The Bodies, for 99p. I’ll wait and see if there’s an offer on the book, Wolf Hall; I don’t… Continue reading Sunday’s Wrap: Reads, Edits & PIs
Green white goods late 60s recycling collection Despite the lockdown with Covid cases causing the council to suspend its garden waste recycling service, the collecting of old white goods is still in operation. We have a redundant fridge and a cooker to be rid of. The reason may be that this service has been passed… Continue reading That Midweek Feeling: Greener
Unless something significant happens, or occurs to me, I’ll try posting a roundup twice a week: Midweek and Sundays. Early In The Morning, about once or twice a week “Boil me some kettles, Olaf; this water’s feeling a bit tepid!” Notifications about new followers to my blog, Early In The Morning, are still coming albeit… Continue reading Sunday’s Wrap: Cnut, perfectionism, and video wall
Fwiw, I’m relocating my posts on running to a newer blog where I’ll include some walks and bike rides (when I get back to it), and all accompanying photos. http://www.runridewalk.wordpress.com I may return this blog (in time) to being a simple and personal diary; that was the initial idea behind it.
Over this past week it’s bothered me how many hours I spend (waste?) on WordPress. This is not a recent increase in time spent here - I’m sure it’s been ongoing - it’s more that I’ve had other things which needed my attention. The problem is I go to WP first thing straight after breakfast.… Continue reading Another time
I wrote a post about Foam Rollers a month ago; about the possibility of making one cheaply from a spare length of pipe and a yoga mat. Well, no need to go to all that trouble now. “Lidl-in-the-Middle” has foam rollers going for £4.99 and as I was in Lidl, stocking up groceries for Lockdown,… Continue reading Roller in the aisles
