    Life in the fast lane indeed. I'm saving cleaning the toilet for a slow day.

    At GEC there was a truly enormous web. It was a triangular affair in the corner of two walls and a ceiling. The last time I saw it, it was about fifteen feet long by about five feet wide, and almost totally black - impossible to see into. The only entrance appeared to be a hole of about one inch in diameter. It did get slowly bigger over the years, but nobody had ever seen the inhabitant. We did, one day when we were feeling adventurous, get a ladder and have a look in through the hole with an endoscope, but he must have seen us coming and remained in a covert location...

    Yuck :( Ours makes those thick white webs that you see in horror films, they're even over the shed windows making it look like I've got net curtains up in there!
    There's also 3/4 a bag if cement that got damp and is now a solid lump, lots if what I think might be snail poo, some sea monkeys that have been in there for about 12years and lots and lots if junk!

    I have 3 to, all bolted together, a large work space, a former darkroom now a brewery, and something at the end full of gardening stuff that I never go in !

    I put back up the christmas tree yesterday, this morning we opened christmas presents and later we are having christmas dinner with sprouts and pigs in blankets, followed by christmas pud and the traditional activity of pulling crackers and wearing hats.

    Just seen a chap in Tesco who was the spitting image of Prince Harry. If it hadn't been for the fact this guy had his trousers on he'd have been indistinguishable.

    Had training from 9:30 til 16:45, brain like mush. Had a much needed green goblin after work, now attempting to find the energy to finish the armadillos. Would rather just go to bed!

    Today I took ownership of my folders and moved some from "C" to "E", I gained 1 GB of hard drive space.
    Now I am depressed at all that effort for so little gain.

    I've got stupidly curly/frizzy hair all because I couldn't be bothered with the mundane job of blow drying it earlier when I washed it :(

    I have a shed, which is padlocked. Only I know where the key is kept. You would not believe how often I am asked what happened to the key to the shed. My key. My shed.

    The neighbours where we used to live, understood about sheds. One of them had a new shed and we held a glorious party with hats and sparklers.
