Peter Pan and the Wishbone Bushes

Another action packed weekend with a live migration for Stoke keeping Dad busy, and a Peter Pan pantomime at the Seamill Hydro entertaining Megan (and Mum) on Sunday. It should have been the Singing Kettle for Megan on Saturday too, but she decided she didn’t want to go – so Dad was left migrating with one hand and trying to stop Megan from helping him with the other.

The V70 was picked up by Park’s this morning for its running repairs, and they left me a brand new V50 to play with until its ready (probably sometime tomorrow). The V50 is a bit small and the engine is a bit noisy when its idling, but otherwise quite impressive – handling’s good and peformance is surprisingly quick for a two litre diesel. Don’t think we’ll be replacing the V70 with one next year though, we’d probably just about get Megan’s stuff in it but Mum and Dad would be travelling light. 😀

The Reds manged their sixth win on the bounce on Saturday, still without conceding a goal, beating Wigan 3-0 at Anfield. Peter Crouch finally got off the mark with one (or possibly two goals), with Luis Garcia scoring the third in the second half. It’s the final match of the Champions League group stages tomorrow night, with Chelsea all that stands in the way of a top place finish. Probably a good job we’ve already qualified and the result doesn’t matter that much…

Printer Repairs

A broken scanner at North Ayrshire (SCSI Interface Fuse Malfunction apparently) cut short the trip there yesterday, but it did give me the chance to drop off the Epson Stylus CX3600 for repair. I took it to Active Office in Kilmarnock, as they were the nearest authorised repair center, who are going to have a look at it and let me know what the problem is (still waiting to hear from them).

Got the bill through for the repairs needed on the V70 today as well, and its nearer to £900 than £600 – will definitely need to look at getting a replacement in the New Year. 😦

Still it was another good result for the Reds last night, a 2-0 win at Sunderland that was the fifth in a row and now they haven’t conceded a goal for over 630 minutes of football – if they beat Wigan on Saturday morning then they’ll go second (at least for a little while!).
