Receiving an email saying that one of your kids is getting a prize at end of year school prize-giving and the other one is being asked to move to the accelerated learning class next year (for brainboxes).

 

Makes you proud.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also makes you wonder who their real parents are...

Not fibre yet - but a note in our mailbox that they'll be trenching up our ROW very soon.

 

(OTOH our VDSL runs at about 100/30 and has been reliable - so I'm not desperate).

Handle9: Christmas markets in Germany. Gluehwein and bratwurst. How can you go wrong?

 

Much too warm for Glühwein this season. I haven't yet brewed it at home.

It was pretty pleasant in rainy Berlin on Sunday.

How I love the sound of a concrete saw in the morning.

 

(when I go to investigate - they're trenching for fibre up the driveway)

It's a shared ROW, and there isn't a fence?

 

Once it branches off into our place, I've got to remove some decking/walkway timbers (screwed down) so they can run the trench under it at the boundary, then feed it through over-ground under the deck.  That was the plan apparently - we'll see if that's what actually happens.  I don't want them to remove the timber - I estimate about a 99% chance they wouldn't mark the timber with numbers, when they went to put it back they'll mix them up, so the screw holes won't align and it'll look terrible / unevenly spaced.  Might be a good idea for me to go out and mark the ends of the timber now.

 

Edit: I'm not enjoying the sound of the concrete saw so much as it's getting closer - time to bung some headphones on...

Gee - I'm glad I'm home.  Contractors doing the trenching had plans with the wrong position for the access point at our boundary.  Looks like exactly 10 metres out.  If they'd trenched it there, it would have been a huge PITA to run it to the house - would have needed to cut a trench in my new concrete path/driveway.  Sorted - but I have to sign my life away apparently to get it "changed" to where it was originally going to be anyway.

Oh whoops... I should have warned them that the guy who used to own one of the houses was a plumber, who'd never not bury a client's water pipe to regulation depth, but quite happy to put his own one about 200mm down.

I have no idea why, but for the past week or so get_iplayer has been an order of magnitude faster than usual.
