hmm I am noticing that my posts seem to be coinciding with
LUG meetings, obviously I havn't had so much to talk about
Due to a skating accident last night I can currently only
see 1 knuckle on my left hand. It has been swelling up since
the accident and whilst the Ice I put on it helped it has
not helped enough. I also seem to have developed a stiff
kneck (probably from when my face hit the ground), bruised
knees, bruised right hand wrist, sore back and cut lip.
nevertheless I'll probably be back out sakting again by next
Friday but it did make todays task difficult.
This week has mainly been spent reviewing finances and
looking at cars, lets just say a week spent looking at cars
. finance packages, bank statements etc is absolute Hell.
What was worse however was trying to test drive a car today
with aforementioned injuries. Driving a car is bad enough
when you're not used to the controls, but when you have
difficulty using the gear stick due to a swollen hand and
have trouble turning your head it can be quite dangerous,
luckily the test driving took place in a largely dissused
Industrial Estate. I struggled through however
and eventually ended up with a White Fiat Punto which is the
exact same car as my Mum's but hers is red. Lets just say
that I am not pleased with the colour but it was necessary
to just get any car ASAP for...
I start work on Monday for NTL's Luserphone, it's not
actually for NTL but as tech support for Tesco/Virgin etc
who have contracted their ISP support out to NTL. Not ideal
work but I need the money and they let me wear whatever I
want to work and let me surf the net whilst working.
