I had the second half of my new treatment for rheumatoid arthritis last week (now I just have to wait 12-16 weeks to see if it works for me!). I've
been feeling a bit 'clunky' and exhausted so not felt much like painting (I think I'm in one of Inso's troughs). But... last month I got an annual bonus from work. I spent a chunk buying one of the Reaper 'build your own' paint sets. Now (in perhaps a rather juvenile way) the prospect of the new paint set* coupled with my hands feeling better, makes me want to paint. But (and here's the hacking off moment), it seems the paint set is stalled in customs. I'm aware I'll probably have to spend another chunk on VAT etc., and I don't like that, but I do accept it. Cost aside, I just want the thing here! Now! This minute! Or sooner!



* No, I'm not of the misguided opinion that buying new paints will make me a better painter, but I do like Reaper's paints and I find working with 'triads' so much quicker.

On the plus side your hands are feeling better which is good to hear. I'm really angry with the annoying drunk that was knocking on my door, right beside my son's bedroom who amazingly slept through it. I told him to go away or I'd phone the police when he was vomiting in our garden. He then stumbled off to return again and knock even louder shouting "hey guys". He then also wandered around the back of our house and knocked on the kitchen window. So i phoned the police and they took him away. He had blood flecks on him, no top, and it's almost the middle of winter here. F**K OFF YOU D!CKH3@D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep. The new treatment comes with a side order of intravenous steroids which I'm sure is what is making the difference at the moment. The trouble is that it will be short-lived. As it is though, I just want my new customised 100+ worth of paint set while I have mobility and enthusiasm!  :D

I've been robbed at the beach, while having a sunbath. Some bastard has taken the fanny I had in my backpack.

I've lost all my documents: national identity, driving license, social security and private health cards, and two credit cards (already cancelled). And 100. The keys of my parents' house (now they'll have to change the keylock). The keys of my car. And the mobile phone, with all the info it had (numbers and email addresses of all my friends, dozens of photos, and even my gym routines).

I am seriously pissed off. More so because I'm a policeman, and I feel absolutely stupid to have been robbed in such a way, with the backpack just one feet away from my head (I had my eyes closed and I was listening to music on my mp3 player). I swear, had I caught the bastard in the moment he was manipulating my backpack, I would have drowned him in the sea.

Update. A kind man found the fanny, saw my address in the identity card, and returned it to me. Everything was there except for the money.
So not too bad. Losing 100 still pisses me off, but recovering all the rest is fairly nice, as it will save me a lot of troubles (credit cards are already cancelled and I ordered new ones, but that's all).

Excellent news!  Better to be out 100 than your identity. :thumbup:

Glad you got most of your stuff back  :thumbup:
Things that piss me off is the staff meeting that was called yesterday at 10 am - considering my night shift finished at 7.30  :hmmm
The idea was to sort out all the issues which have been going on for months regarding people not doing their jobs and other niggling things - the boss actually turned up 15 mins late and then gave certain people a ticking off over timekeeping !  :lmao
The up shot was stuff was raised and nothing will change as my boss has no backbone - I might as well have gone to bed for all that was achieved !

The dangers of horse riding were made abundantely clear to me. My wife was trampled by a horse which was spooked by a stupid woman who suddenly appeared outside the indoor school with a horse and a water hose in hand. Water spraying all over the place and this particular horse had attadked the one she was on. The outcome being the horse threw her in a panic. She went over its head and in slow motion it went right over her standing on her arm and her chest in the process. I thought I had lost her but thankfully the body protector I had bought her worked. Her arm is black and blue though. No brakes thank god! But the woman was told off by several staff at the yard as it is against school rules to (a) approach the school while in use without prior consent, (b) use the hose which is specifically to water the indoor arena for any other purpose, (c) bring a horse known for spooking and attacking other horses near the indoor school. As it is she has been given until August to move. I think it is time to rethink one of our mutual interests.

Unfortunately this is one of the major drawbacks of horses - I work with them every day and they can still put the wind up me something awful at times. BUT it really is a very rewarding pastime - you took the appropriate precautions (bodyprotector) and it payed off. Unfortunately idiots plague every hobby and walk of life. Hope it hasn't put you off too much and that the bruises fade soon.

Just spent the last 15 minutes mopping tea off my computer desk - luckily it missed the tower and keyboard and ran round the external hard drive but my mouse mat is soaked and all the paperwork sat on the desk  :tantrum:

Put the paperwork in the airing cupboard if you can separate them first and they should hopefully be fine. I've done it a few times myself.

 :swear: :swear: :swear:  Had a rough day at work.  Sorry if this gets 'technical' and long.  I am the mechanic at the lumber yard I work at, so I see some interesting things sometimes.  People can be quite creative in breaking things.  Today was rather frustrating.  Our largest crane truck, got a new crane, engine and transmission at the beginning of this year.  Sounds good but very expensive.  Since then, I have given it a new muffler, and extended the tailpipe, replaced the alternator and all four batteries and the crane mechanics have been up to fix issues three times (possibly more).  Oops forgot to mention the engine shop didn't do the exhaust manifold right so it blew the gaskets about a month ago, which got fixed this week.  Two weeks ago the starter decided that it was time to begin the death throes (why wasn't a new one put on the NEW engine?).  After a week of trying to get a new starter, we finally got one.  The next day the drivers had to smack the old starter with a hammer to get it to crank the engine. Then it worked ok but was a bit labored.  Today, the truck did not have any deliveries and no trailers to pick up so I took it out of service to do the starter.  Everything was going good, had to get an extra pair of hands to get the last bolt out while holding the starter up.  The darn thing weighs about 50lbs.  So we get the old one out check it against the new one, looks great.  Crawled back under the truck, get handed the new one, hoist it into place, this one is heavier, and the helper puts two bolts in.  Moved to the third bolt before anything is tight, like proper procedure, it just makes it in over half way and gets tight.  What the heck?  Pulled that bolt out, tightened the other two then took one out and tried it in place of the one that wouldn't go in.  Same deal.  Took the starter back out and checked the length of all three bolts, all the same, thought so.  Hmm is one bent?  Put starter back in place, bolted up, rotated bolts, same thing.  Took back out, said What the TRUCK?!!  Checked the three mounting holes, look ok, tried all three bolts in all holes, ok.  Crawled back out and looked at old grungy starter.  Scraped some grime off the mounting end,  :swear:  there's a frippin spacer!  No wonder it wouldn't bolt up.  The bolt that would only go half way was going all the way through it's hole and butting into the flywheel.  Mumble mumble cuss.  Put the spacer onto the new starter, hoisted BACK into place, put all three bolts in, fantastic!  Now to connect the cables, they aren't wires, they're cables as thick as my index finger and they don't bend nicely, but they do hold their shape when they do bend.  There are nine or so cables two of which can be called wires because they are comparatively small, and three terminals to connect them to.  Hooked them all back up according to the mental map I had, then reconnected the four batteries.  No power.  Nothing, no lights, not a thing.   8:::  Jaws picked up off the floor, time to find out why.  Traced each individual cable back to the battery box, everything seemed ok.  There are four positive cables and four ground cables and a little positive.  After too long checking for power we go back to the starter and retrace everything again.  Finally we discovered that my mental map was the issue and one ground cable was connected to a positive terminal and a positive cable was connected to a ground terminal.  We had made a closed loop system, power was returning to ground before it went anywhere.  So we had to disconnect all the cables to switch the two that were wrong.  In order to do this, one of the fuel filters had to come off again, it was taken off in order to get the old starter out.  Stupid hidden bolts.  One thing I was taught was, when you take a filter off, don't reuse it ever (even if it's new?) unless it is an air filter and isn't clogged.  The filter that came off at the begining was chucked (had been in service for about two weeks) and a new one installed before we found the power problem.  I said buggrit, this new filter has never had fuel through it, I'm reusing it and reinstalled it after the cable swap.  Crawled back out from under the truck, reconnected the batteries again. :jawdrop:  Lights work woot!  Jump in, clutch pedal down, turn key...never heard that truck crank so nicely before. 8)  Finally finished, what time is it, twenty to five.  Started the job somewhere near 11 am, never went for lunch, time to clean up.  Now it's my weekend, I have two days off and because they don't like to pay sales staff overtime (which is the other part of my job), I don't have to go back to work until 9am Tuesday morning instead of 8.

Venting: Accomplished!  Feel good now.

Lol lead head.

Originally I'm a mechanical engineer, so I hear your pain. No sympathy though.
Rule 1. When disassembling something always write down the order they came off in and where from (digital photography is better these days)
Rule 2. Never break rule 1.
