It transpires that the size of the picture in Amazon does not accurately reflect the actual size of the device, go figure? so now having reorganized my living room the new laser printer has a home and my old mate Andrew was the happy recipient of the old inkjet. I have, inadvertently, discovered another great advantage of laser over inkjet, I actually found this during the transportation of the devices you see laser printers don’t leak. As I was walking the inkjet down the road I mused over the fact that my fingers felt wet, then I checked and sure enough they were full of black ink the ink having emptied itself through the breath hole. I wouldn’t be overly distressed about the ink leakage if it wasn’t for the fact that I am only upgrading because the inkjet repeatedly tells me that its empty, well it bloody is now!
I delivered a wonderful set of cute clothes to the lovely Danny and Jodie yesterday and was treated to a cuddle of the most adorable 5 day old Lily, what a stunner! It’s so nice to see a young family rather than the horror stories that you hear today about single parents and unwanted pregnancies, really does return your faith in human nature. The red-hot apartment and heavily swaddled baby reminded me of bringing my own son up in a freezing house camped out in front of the fire for fear he would get cold. I for one am sure that Lily has a wonderful life with loving parents to look forward to and I will leave her my cell phone number in case she ever needs anyone to bang her parents heads together. As a slight aside, the irritating proliferation of ‘keep calm and …’ T shirts does nothing to detract from a newborn baby grow with the legend “Keep calm and giggle”, just warms your heart. Having left the newborn I was treated to seeing my fostering friends and their 5 month old (and just 12 pound) ward, it took some time but not only did I get rewarded with a smile and a gurgle but a set of limbs desperately perambulating towards me, another stunner and I apologise to my more adult friends for ignoring them, well a little anyway. As is doubtless clear from this post, I adore babies can there be anything more gorgeous, more innocent and more amazing than a baby?
In other news I idly looked through a catalogue today before returning it to the shelf and wondered if anyone has a more eclectic bookshelf than I do? On this shelf a catering equipment catalogue resides between a cookbook and a motorcycle repair manual, next to these is the Engineer’s relay handbook, the excellent Treitel’s Law of Contract and then One Million Tattoo’s. I could almost hear the Lloyd Grossman voice drawling ‘now who would live in a house like this’
