Monday 15th November 2010

I sort of made a decision when I woke up this morning that today was going to be the start of the rest of my life, and I was going to start actually getting a bit properly organised.

I didn't quite succeed, but I guess I made a bit of a start. Still a way to go, but anyway. Just a case of drawing up a list of things to do, including writing three diary entries (well, I managed two), doing some reading (I did some, but nowhere near all of it), getting some Sky+ work done (sorted, but I had a bit of a head start, having done most of it overnight or yesterday).

This evening, after Sarah came home from work, we went shopping at the main Tesco, but after that we were too late getting home for me to really want to cook anything. So my plans went a bit down the dumper.

Anyway, this evening I watched University Challenge followed by Only Connect (a Children in Need special edition which I'll probably keep), and then Sarah started watching one of her programmes that was on tonight, part of the Glory of Greece season. Unfortunately, as she was watching something started playing up with the Sky+ box - the picture froze, and the red record light and the blue play light stayed on but didn't do anything. When I woke up at about 3:00am it was still like that, so I tried a hard boot, after which the two programmes we'd been recording that evening hadn't worked and also the lights at the front of the box that tell you whether it's on and what it's doing weren't lighting up. Which is slightly annoying, but at least it does actually seem to be working now.
