    Jiffy bags, the proper ones, I always forget and just tear them open only to have 1 metric ton of shredded padding dump itself on the floor.

    The post office has a parcel for me, and their website says I can collect it from the local delivery office between 4-7pm. This is a LIE! :mad:
    (The opening hours bit, them having the parcel is legit)

    I'm about to start rearranging my desk, which means re-wiring everything and cable management. I haven't even started (I'm procrastinating) and I already hate it.

    Dude you don't even want to know what I have to do :(

    When mum had her fall I did as much as I could. However, I needed to take care of myself too. When I hurt my arm last year (it's still not right) I refused to carry her old bed down and carry up the dining table so she could sleep downstairs. I know for a fact at least one of them would have gotten dropped. So my brother had to come down here to do it. This was between me running around like a headless chicken, back and forth to the hospital etc. He did f**k all.

    So he came down whilst I wasn't here. He moved the bed down and the table up. However, under her bed were some nylon bags. One had a hoover in it, one had a drill etc. They were about 2" with dust. And because he was pissed at me for not doing absolutely everything and had to take time out of his life for one day (poor sod, what a terrible inconvenience) he threw them into my room. It was like a bloody grenade. It's not a big room, and it got everywhere. To the point where my PC continually clogs up with it, and I know the fix is going to be BS. What I mean is, I am going to have to literally empty everything out of this room, dust it, hoover the entire empty room and then move it all back in such was the "damage" from him being a wa*ker. What he doesn't realise is that there are thousands of pounds worth of equipment in here, and it is all now full of effing dust. My PC, the A3 printer, my plotter etc etc.

    So before I can even rearrange my desk and set anything up I have to do all of that.

    Did she play the "Woman alone" card? That usually makes recovery firms get their finger out.

    S'Ok.
    If they had a faster option for 2 clueless teenagers she'd have used that instead

    How quick the turntables...

    So yeah the switching works, but the monitor no longer does. Just started a migraine-strobe. Thought it was me to start with but no, on the internal diagnostic screens as well.

    They're sending a new one advanced replacement that should arrive Monday, but still teh sux0rs, especially for a 4-month old £1600 monitor... doesn't give warm and fuzzies.

    BIL got tossed out for his heroin habit. He's going and telling my family (the family that OWNS the place) that my better half did it too to try to get her tossed out. With her 17 year old autistic Trans son. I would, incidentally, most likely lose my place. Thank God for friends here at the campground. Still gave me a splitting headache.

    Poor diet - Poor sleep - Poor work/life balance

    They all sort of link in together in one way or another, royally in a rutt and need a complete overhaul which is easier said than done.

    Just feeling a bit low today... pfft

    Ahhh well
