I have successfully navigated the mires of local government bureaucracy and have managed to get a Building Notice issued so our builder can start work on Monday of next week. This was not too appallingly painful apart from not realising -- silly me -- that the planning department and the building control department do not speak to one another, and thus I had to run down to the Town Hall this morning, clutching a set of plans, so that the BC folks could get a copy. And it's convenient that the local sewer system appears to run under our neighbours' properties on either side, rather than ours. Still... done. Box ticked. Phew.

In other news, I have managed to acquire some passport photos that do not make me look like part of the cast of 28 Days Later or Shaun Of The Dead. This doubtless means that the passport office will reject them out of hand as not looking sufficiently like my old ones. ;)

  • Gah -- "friends" page styles

    Anyone know how to turn off LJ's new "feed" style friends pages? Do not want. I find my existing 25-entries-per-page to be much more manageable.

    Merry winter-festival-of-your-choice, all of you!

  • Gissa job...

    No, no, not me, but a friend of mine is losing his retail job this coming Monday when the place where he works closes down. (Nice timing...) Anyone…
