USA to UK…via Iceland?

My new shirts from the MLB Shop finally arrived yesterday morning. I’d had to contact MLB about where they had gone, as it had been 6 weeks, and according to the tracking page they had left the USA 6 times. I found out that the reason it took so long was that it had been sent to Reykjavik, Iceland by mistake – not sure how that could have happened! On a side note, the customer service from MLB was excellent, every email was responded...

Family Records

A few weeks ago, I ordered some Wakey!Wakey! stuff from the Family Records store. Last week, most of the stuff arrived, and there was a note on the invoice to say the poster I ordered was out of stock. I went on the website and it said ‘Out of Print’, so I expected not to get it, but it came today. The fact that it came made my day, but it was made much better by the hand written note that came with it. In the age of ordering...

Ouch…

I had one of my wisdom teeth taken out this morning. It wasn’t as painful as I expected, but it was very unpleasant! The anaesthetic injection wore off after a few hours so my jaw is aching now! I have another appointment in June, but at least I will know what to expect! On the plus side, my books had been delivered when I got home after work tonight, which I am really glad about. I finished reading the last Charlaine Harris book this...

Must. Not. Buy. More. Books.

My room is already starting to resemble a library, but I seem to have a problem with buying more books.

I particularly like the collections that they do, as it gives me chance to read books that I wouldn’t usually read...

New Camera

I caved and bought a new camera today, deciding on the Canon EOS 500D. I had read lots of reviews online and this one sounded good, and after going down to PC World to look at them, I decided on this one. I’ve not taken many pictures yet, I’m going out tomorrow to give it a test run. I did get a picture of the flowers that Vicky bought my Mum for Mother’s Day which I quite like.

New Car!

After spending a lot of money on repairing my car recently, all the oil leaking out of the tank was the final straw, so I decided to give it up and get a new car. I picked it up on Thursday last week and I love it!! It’s got a smaller engine than my last car (1.3 instead of 1.4) but it is so much more powerful. It’s a diesel car rather than petrol (must remember when I go to the petrol station!), so the engine sounds (and behaves) a...
