Yes I was pleasantly surprised this week to see mine (fully comp ncb protected) had dropped by €120 because the new car is petrol and 200cc smaller than the last one.

I'll be able to provide for us all and have a good life". I spend a day living the fantasy where I'll be able to ditch my crappy paying job and live the MTV Cribs dream. Then I check my numbers and I haven't even won a scratch card and it all comes crashing down. I have to go back to work and it's all the fault of those evil people who brainwashed me into believing me that "it could be you". I vow never to be sucked in again as it's just a waste of money.......

Until the next time the jackpot is high and I convince myself that this time the universe is on my side and I am somehow deserving of winning. So I go and pick my numbers. Quick pick is not for me as they give you silly numbers that never come up - last time I did euro millions quick pick I got 08, 09, 10, 11. That's obviously a fix and i'm being stitched up by the lotto overlords just like the contestants are stitched up by evil producers. I pick my own numbers which this time are going to be lucky.........until they aren't.

And rinse and repeat

My brother's going to sort out a Windows 10 Pro installation tomorrow, in an attempt to alleviate the internet issues I'm having with the likes of Discord and OneNote, along with the proxy server, which seems to switch itself on every now and then.

A quiet early day .. well apart from the snoring of the dog!

Had a good phone call to family in Canada and some good news items that make me at ease on many things...

a day ahead; maybe will be able for walking the dog.

Had a long face to face with the stray stinker of a tom cat! Eye to eye, me laying down the law! Emerges there is now some confusion re who is caring for him. he used to live here but the old man died over 5 years ago. Cats are fiercely territorial. Hence the frequent rows here with my cats. And the copious STINKY spraying..

So I am trying island "gossip"! That I would welcome him in the house BUT not unless and until he is "fixed". And that I would be happy to sort that myself. That will go the rounds and we will see.. the ferry man also reads the ESB meters so a good person to spread news ..

Island life! A place apart..

Happy abed with daffodil buds opening on the table here. One by one the tight-furled flowers show their golden hearts.
