Love her style. I think my favourite one there is the playing card.

I saw it as an election ballot pencil so I took it as he will be killed in the next election
I love how everyone sees something different in art
also, I really like it and it's super cool that her art is being shown!

Friends and their kids went with us to a Haunted Halowe'en farm.. There was a Haunted Barrel tractor Ride where a tractor pulls a train full of barrels along a route and people jump up in costumes etc and shout "boo!" or whatever. 2 of the 3 kids that went on that ride with MrsA are now unable to sleep due to "the scary clown". "the pig-man" and "the duck man" . Those 2 are not mine so "yay". Bigone seems unaffected and Doone and I went to look at an emu instead of going on ride. Read the small print, kids.

More of a Nay! but Yay! then Nay! The main TV seemed to be on the path to self-destruction the other day, I noticed a horizontal line of stuck pixels going across the bottom. That Nay! only lasted about five seconds before I started plotting what to get to replace it and excitedly drew up a shortlist of 55" ones that would be a nice upgrade. Then switched it on last night and the fucking thing's fine again.

I'm sure TV's shrink.

Every time we've had a new non CRT telly it's been "WOW! This is massive, it's like being at the cinema!" a few months down the line and you see how much extra wasted space there is around the wall that a bigger TV could occupy :D

Currently have no power because my circuit breaker board thing looks like this:

The yay is that it was caught before it caught fire and burnt down the house!

Lucky it didn't do more damage! How old is that Malc? It looks like it could do with updating but I'm only basing that on the fact it looks different to mine which was fitted about... Oh yeah, 10 years ago.

If I was to fit a board, it would probably look like that.

But without the burnt bit, that would come later.

About 11 years old. and yeah it could have been much worse, looking like it might cost the best part of a grand to replace and install, which is perfect timing, I mean there is never a good time for that sort of thing, but a month before christmas has got to be one of the worst times.

Malc, please get some more quotes. I had some electrical work done last month that included a new board, three new sockets, and outside light and full safety certificate for the house. It cost me £500. Although I appreciate yours is more urgent so you might be paying for that.

Hope you get it sorted soon. :)

I will do, he hasn't given me the quote yet, this was just a verbal rough figure. He thought the new box would be about £500 (with the replacement breakers too) and that it would take about 10 hours at £25 an hour.

His Quote is £645 which seems more reasonable to me.

Because of how many breakers there are? The house is essentially split into 2 (main house and extension) over 2 floors. There are separate rings for lights and sockets in each of those 4 areas, so that's 8. Then there is one for the old electrical shower, one for the smoke detector and one for the outside/garden rooms. Not sure what the 12th one is for.
