Our fuel supplies were a wee bit low last week!
15% and I'm supposed to order at 25%
So I ordered!

Breaking news from the land of 20CN broadband.
Must have thrown an extra peat on the fire today!!

A good photographer would have made a masterpiece of this hazy sun over Suilven!
Mine is just a snap sadly :)

During my derring do in the wind today my little bike decided to let me know it was in difficulties by refusing to crank. Starter motor stuck!
Got it freed off and straight into dry dock for repairs :)
Who makes motorcycles without centre stands FFS? (Yamaha)
Starter out, cleaned, lubricated and back in the time it took to make a loaf of bread :)

It appears that my excitement was misplaced.
Here we go again, last 30 hours have been rough.

That's nice!
I've ordered a new exterior light and they gave me a free screwdriver to fit it :)

Have we finally got rid of the carnage following the lightning strikes of the 12th January?
It's looking likely.
Note: those on proper internet connections, don't laugh :)
20CN is alive and well in Assynt

Ok, so as far as new life experiences go, here we are enjoying meat based cocktails at '"MeatBar' Glasgow where No 1 son is happily employed.
Mine was a Chorizo based Margarita with which I added a peanut butter milk stout!
Worked for me!

you have to hand it to @Premierinn
they always seem to give us the same room ;)

Huh, just got the phone line back a couple of days ago and now the broadband service is down the tubes again!
As part of the diagnostic process, would I mind taking the Router out of the circuit and set up a direct PPoE connection through my modem!
talk about learning new skills!
Good thing I have an old ThinkPad running Ubuntu to hand.
Anyway, it made no difference.
Sync speed 7.8Mbps downstream, throughput 1.7Mbps

Well. Who knew fitting a free standing wee Microwave oven would take so long!
thanks to my Kitchen fitters, the socket for the ovens (we used to have a built in Microwave) has been placed slightly below the shelf that the Microwave sits on and os therefore impossible to access.
had to remove the main oven to plug in!

Transfer the remaining Gas to the new tank. Only 20% left thankfully or it may take a while using the wee portable pump they have.
