Shakespeare made up the name “Jessica” for his play Merchant of Venice.
Shakespeare probably based it on the biblical name ISCAH, which would have been spelled Jescha in his time.

I mostly watch on iPlayer so I can pause with that. itvPlayer you can only pause when watching catch up programmes though not when it's live so that bugs me.

Four or five eastern bloc countries have formed a loose coalition already and keep defying EU directives so possibly one of those. Then again they do receive a lot of funds so may not want to risk it.

Finally hot today. The cloud broke and we have sunshine and blue skies so it could well make that 24C. Been into town with my granddaughter and bought a couple of sweatshirts for my trip. Probably won't need them but it's hard to predict whether the temp will drop much in the evenings so I'm taking two. She's having her hair done at her favourite hairdresser's so I left her to it. She always comes back up here to have it done. She reckons where she lives now they're not only expensive but rubbish. Personally I think the one she uses here is extortionate so I dread to think what her local ones charge.

Thought I'd spend the time catching up on boards and ignoring the chores I could be doing.

I wish I had had loads to do today. I've been bored silly for the first time in goodness knows how long.

All the packing I needed to do has been done except for what I am going to need until the day before I move. The family were all out. I don't have my Sky TV and there has been nothing on terrestrial. It is after all the weekend when tele is crap and my books are packed so nothing to read.

It all sounds so exciting for you now Wendy. I bet you can hardly wait. What date you you go again?

It is exciting. I'm a bit nervous though. It's five years since I went and it's a different airport. As long as I don't miss my flight I'll be fine. It's a direct flight this time which is nice. I fly on the 3rd September and leave on the 17th. Get back here on the 18th. I'm a bit like you with your packing Sandy. Done everything I can do until the last minute stuff and now I just want to go.

Hahaha I have to laugh with your hot 24C temps Laughing Those are our cool temps here lol.

Sandy don't you have an ipad that you could download ebooks to? I thought you did have one.

I'm still awake here .. sigh so going to force myself a snooze at least as Monday is always a busy day for me.

Getting your hair done here is a costly business too Wendy. I'm lucky that my hairdresser charges reasonable prices.
Had to look up what iplayer was and it sounds like it's similar to Netflix.

Yeah, I have a mini pad and I do have books downloaded. I was just being bloody minded because I was so cheesed off when I made that last post.

I think it's because I am so close to moving now I am just impatient to get there and get my life together again. I can't concentrate on anything else at the moment.

I"m not going to forget that date now Wendy as it's my Sarah's birthday. Incidentally it's also ChrisW's birthday.

It's been another boiling hot day today. 11pm and it's 17c which makes it a lovely summer evening temperature. I think I'm going to have to leave my window open again all night or I wont sleep. Yup, it is strange when you say you are cold in a temperature that I find lovely and warm Martha.

iplayer is just to watch BBC programmes either live or on catch up Martha and itvplayer is the same but for our commercial channels. You can't watch them from outside the UK. Local TV online basically.

I'm very lucky my sister is a hairdresser. I just pay her for the colour and stuff and get free labour.

Chris has already told me I'll have to delay my flight so I can post her birthday wishes Sandy. lol Fat chance!

Still our version of warm here but raining this morning. Yesterday was mostly sunny. I hope you got some sleep Martha. Monday is busy for me too but I'm reluctant to get moving today.

What? You aren't going to celebrate Chris's birthday. How unreasonable of you, lol.

A bit cooler here today which is lovely. Just right for me.

I'm off in a few minutes to go collect the key to the new flat. No time to drop in for measurements for curtain rails and cooker and fridge/freezer sizes though. Will try to do that tomorrow.

Our house guest (Aimee's ex-fiance) is going to drive me (with Aimee) to collect the keys. Can't wait to get them in my little mitts.

Hi Everyone,
How is everyone?
It is actually a nice temperature today. Going to go read a book and hang out with my daughter. My boys are with my parents.

Yay for getting the keys Sandy. All systems go now. I bet you can't wait to get in there.

It's a miserable morning here. Been raining all night and isn't showing any signs of stopping. Off to visit my brother later but just doing some cleaning and laundry before that. Exciting huh?

Same type of day here too Wendy, not cold though.

Oh yeah, you bet I is excited.  Sooooo close now.  The frustration is though that I am reliant on other people's time of fitting me in when they can to help me.

For instance, I am itching to get over there to measure up, then go buy a curtain rail to put up and do a few other bits that I would like to get done, but I don't know when one of mine will be available and in the mood to run around with me.

If it wasn't for this darn stent I have inside me and not being able to go too far away from a loo due to peeeing constantly I could do a lot independently.  As it is, at the moment I am totally dependent on the help of others.

Well I am in a good mood, I just got home from the salon and I got my hair trimmed/cut and colored. So far LOVE IT! I am just going to hang a bit watch a little police crime on TV and get things ready to go.

Glad you like your hair Beckea. Having it done well does tend to lift our mood I find.

I can imagine how frustrating that must be Sandy but at least you know you'll get there now. Better than wondering if you were ever going to get a flat you liked. Patience Grasshopper. lol

A contrast to yesterday. Warm and sunny this morning. I've got washing on the line and a few other chores to do but nothing major.

Good morning all.

A new hair style aways makes one feel so much better Becks.

Hope your holiday was a really good one Natalie.

I"m also in a good mood today.  Finally I'm able to start things moving for my move.  Going over to the flat in a bit to measure up and then come back and order the cooker and fridge freezer.  I've organised the chap to come to link up with the Sky dish on the roof.  Organised the removal men and now just have to organise my girls to do things I need doing that I can't do alone or without a car.

Yes, it does.

Just trying to figure out how to create my own skin on the board today. (color, background/header, etc). Wish they had an overview of what things are -- thinking I am changing a border around the forum but it is not, or changing the category and it is not. Anyway, I will figure it out. I could just code it, but I would rather just use color/background and be done with it. Wish support had this type of information.

The secret to figuring out what colour goes where Becks is use orange or another bright colour on a specific area, then look to see where the orange shows up and you will then be able to change it to the colour you want.  A bright orange is #ff9900

I've had a good Thursday.  Been over to the new flat and done some measuring, then came home and ordered a new cooker and fridge freezer to be delivered next Thursday.

Getting exciting now Sandy. New appliances will be nice too.

The weather is like a yo-yo this week. Lovely sunny day yesterday but it's poured down all night and still is. Grocery shopping to do but nothing else planned.

Nice sunny morning here, getting ready for a Dr appointment right after lunch , nothing serious .


Then it's errand running as usual . I miss my car, but don't miss the driving hazards around here, it's hectic just to get across the street , seems the bicycles own the roads now day , 


Weather still hot and dry all over our Province , wonder where all the usual rain went this year ?  




Sandy :  good luck with the move , strange ... over here fridge /freezer , and stove are supplied with the flats  , and kept repaired too, but we pay for it  , rent is high here .


Hello Beekey, Whisper and Marie have a nice day .
