No, it's not what you think. …
Recently the new landlord decided to do a few improvements to the house. Namely, new windows and doors and a fresh paint job.
The doors and windows were done on the day of my last exam. Fortunately I had all my revision done because the place was like a construction site. They did get the entire job finished in the one day though – 14 windows and the front and back doors. It's great to have it done, all double glazed and insulated which should really help with the heating bills come winter.
This past week was the painter's turn. It took him a bit longer, but it was only one lad and he lost a day to rain. He did a great job, and very thorough. A bit too thorough maybe. While he was painting the chimney it seems he did something to the satellite dish which knocked out our Sky. 🙄 With luck it should be fixed by the end of the week.
On the other hand if this hadn't happened I would have missed an interview on terrestrial telly with a pole-dancing unicyclist :confused: … in Irish. :faint:
Oh yes, I did some "real" windows upgrades during the week as well. Mainly installing XP SP3, and some other bits and pieces like switching from Nero to Ashampoo for CD burning. Can't claim any great improvements, but there's been no major grief either.
