Techical problem and RAW 25th Anniversary

I love to see technical problems manifesting themselves in the real world. Today Sam and I were treated to this wonderful example at Cannon Street station.

We watched an episode of WWE RAW for the first time in months tonight. We made a special exception it was was the 25th Anniversary show. This was probably the best edition of RAW that we have seen in a LONG time. It was fun to relive some history and see some old classic moments plus a string of special guests who brought the memories flooding back. Nostalgic wrestling trip over we decided we probably won't be watching RAW again for a while LOL. NXT and the pay per views are the only wrestling that we watch these days.

Day off

Today was a day off, It was a good day off. Despite having things to go and do I managed to not be dragged into any work issues that were going on. Great willpower on my part and it made the day very enjoyable.

Long old day

It was a long old day today. I got up early so that I could leave with Sam on his return to the office which was a struggle in itself.

It was a busy old day with lots if tasks to complete. To make matters worse there was also an evening of late night work to deal with.

Got home for some brief rest to have dinner and catch up with Lucifer, Supergirl and Scorpion before having to work at midnight to do an installation for a client. Thankfully it didn't take too long and everything went smoothly. I was knackered by the time I had finished though as you would expect. I won't be making a habit of doing this that's for sure.

Snuggles, quick day and trailers

After a lovely relaxing weekend it was a real struggle to get up this morning. Extra snuggles won out though and I didn't do go in early LOL.

The working day was busy but stress free and breezed by which was a welcome change.

There are lots of great things happening in the Marvel Universe these days and I am really looking forward to the release of Cloak And Dagger. The release date is now set for Thursday 7th June with a two hour episode. A sneak preview has just been released:

STARZ have also just released their Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 trailer and it looks great! Ash and his offspring, what could possible go wrong? LOL

No broadband in the house, and life carried on

Well today was an interesting one. Our broadband went down. How would we cope without broadband while Virgin Media engineers were fixing things?

Funnily enough it made little difference to most of us. Sam was unable to play online games and we couldn't stream stuff via Netflix etc but that didn't matter. We spent the day reading and watching downloaded stuff and then start watching the extended Harry Potter films again. We still had communication with the outside world via our phones and to be honest not having access to Facebook was not a cataclysmic event LOL.

So there it is, the problem was not resolved before we went to bed but nobody was upset or suffering from withdrawal symptoms, life just went on as normal.

That's what I call a result!

Early start, landlords, TV catch up and Preacher finale

There was rest for the wicked today as we had to get up at a reasonable hour to have a bit of a tidy up as the landlords were popping by to do a small bit of maintenance work.

Showtunes and incense are a great combination for doing housework. I had Bugsy Malone and then School Of Rock to motivate me while I sorted out the living room and kitchen. It was good to have a bit of a spring clean and the house is now nice and tidy and smells lovely.

The landlords came and fixed the bathroom light and explained how the heating worked. They also gave us permission to put up shelves etc (with the caveat of making good when we leave) so now we can make things even more homely and functional which was great news.

Once all that was done we caught up on X-Files, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Blacklist. Toni went out to do some shopping with Jade which gave Sam and I a chance to catch up a few episodes of Gotham as we are very behind on the latest season.

Hell's Kitchen served as an aperitif with our lasagne before we got on to the last two episodes of Preacher for finale time.

The second season of Preacher was so much better than the first. The final episode was outstanding. You really must go and check this out if you haven't already!

Struggle to get up, good day and Preacher

It was a struggle to get up for work today. I had to force myself out of bed.

It's been a busy old week so I was starting to flag. Things did let up a bit today though with things not being quite as manic as they had been earlier in the week. Had a constructive troubleshooting call with a client, managed to test out and verify a new process and still get to leave at a reasonable time!

We continued our Preacher binge tonight ending only because I was just crashing out leaving us just two episodes left. Sadly these will have to wait until tomorrow much to the disappointment of Toni and Sam *grin*!
