Z has no time

Sorry, I must go in five minutes. I'm just finishing off half a melon - I know that the Sage will eat the other half, but if I leave the whole thing he won't even see it - and going to put washing on the line - again, he can be relied on to bring it in but not to empty the washing machine. I've recorded anything I might want to see on television in the next week - actually, that means the last of the 4th series of The Wire. I haven't seen any of it yet; that is, of that series. I think it's fabulous and wish that I still had a DVD recorder (that records onto discs, that is) so that I hadn't had to delete them. I think I'll buy the set, in fact - Ro will certainly be pleased if I do.

So, have a fabulous time while I'm away and don't feel that you have to be good. If I have a chance I'll drop in during the week but probably to leave a comment rather than a post as it always feels odd to blog away from home. See you next Monday.

I'm ashamed to say that I still haven't mastered my beautiful new recorder but #1 son and the teenagers are coming at the week-end so hopefully there will be deliverance.
I tried with the manual but I don't understand the language and I was a dab hand with my old simple one.
I'm the simple one.

Oh my gods The Wire is fantastic. Second best teevee show ever; just behind Deadwood.

I'm one of those idiots when it comes to recording things...my hubbie has to do that for me...

I love how you leave out food...and little hints to the Sage...tee hee!

Have a lovely trip... :)

I've not bothered reading most of the manual - it seems to do it all for me. I quite liked programming it in manually because you could allow for the previous programme to overrun, now I quite often miss the last few seconds because something has started late. The Sage at least can switch our new television on and off and watch it; he had been quite intimidated by needing two remotes just to get anything at all. I agree. I liked it when it was simpler.

He keeps phoning me - he's missing me. I like to be missed, actually. Keeps us all on our toes...
