Another week, another brain dump…

1. Why is it that the one day when you want to get away a little early to start your long weekend, is the day you get held back in the office til 3/4 hr after you planned to leave and then you get stuck in the mother of all traffic jams for over an hour just trying to go a few hundred yards?!  It wasn’t even the holiday that caused the jam, there was just something going on further up the road past the junction I was trying to escape at, which blocked everything going anywhere!  That Murphy has a lot to answer for…

2. Did you know it was possible to go into a fabric shop and talk yourself out of doing something?  AND that it was possible to find it difficult to spend a gift voucher?  It came as quite a shock to me, I can tell you…

3. The price of bribery is going up these days – it cost me 50p each to ransom a couple of fairy cakes from the bake sale at work for my long suffering onshore troops!  It was all for charity though…

4. I’m all for a good long weekend, but TV specials can really wreck your regularly scheduled recordings – I nearly had to miss the first episode of The Great British Sewing Bee because Jonathan Creek’s special pushed out Murdoch Mysteries, and its next airing clashed with the Great British Sewing Bee AND Agatha Christie’s Marple.  Good job Sky likes to air everything 101 times in a week ;o)

5. Speaking of Jonathan Creek, has anyone else noticed that Joanna Lumley looks like she’s wearing someone else’s hair these days?  I noticed it when she was on an episode of Lewis a while back as well, I can’t decide if it’s actually a wig or someone is overprocessing her hair so badly it looks like a bad wig!  Saying that, she delivers a good message…
