Today I... [Oct. 16th, 2008|05:07 pm]

[mood |accomplishedaccomplished]

Got a junction box.

Painted the fence.

Painted the tool locker.

Got high on wood preservative (Well not exactly high just felt sick really).

Then...

Guy came round with a dead laptop for me to look at while he did my garden. Result was laptop still not well but all his files are backed up, and I have a very good looking garden. Poor Guy then got roped into helping me get a power cable under the bedroom floor.


There's a empty cable drum left under the floor 20 years ago.
 
Really pleased Guy helped with this because every time I put my hand under there, I'm sure felt something run across it.

Cable and draw-rope now run... Now I'm going to try and get it all wired up before I go out tonight.

I had been thinking of running network cables all round the flat but after the struggle we had just to get one cable across one room... I may just make do with Wi-Fi... Nah! Wi-Fi's rubbish, I'll run the cables.

"incy"! One of the buggers grabbed my arm and tried to pull me under there!

I think I can see a blue pen to the right of the cable drum, it may be useful! Or is it a childs Corgi car, it might be valuable!
Bet the floor comes up to find out what it is now!
What about digging down to make a basement that no one knows is there?
It looks ideal for storage!
