Day 1, Machester to Hope, Derbyshire | englandcoasttocoast

country view

We arrived in Manchester about 8 am local time and proceeded onto Hope.  We are staying with friends in their lovely, old, rambling farmhouse, along with inside animals – a dog, four cats, and a snake – and outside creatures, including geese, hens, a rooster named Dennis, doves that perch on the roof, sheep, and goodness knows what else. I love the way people name their homes here.  “Haigh” means enclosure, a la The Hague.

Big Day at Work

My company is celebrating their 10 year anniversary today. The building is alive with energy; people moving about everywhere. There are more people here than usual because after work we're having a party. These other people come from our other sites in the area. Like Oktoberfest, they will be serving beer, and wine. What a good company :)

Also today, we got new badges, nicer than the old ones.

All fun aside, i guess i have work to do. I've made a deal with my boss. He doesn't know it yet, but there's a deal. I have about 5 items on my To Do list. When those items are done, i'm taking a few days off. Anything added to my To Do list now will have to wait.

People equate vacation with travelling. But i'll be spending it working on a project.

Day Off?

I took the day off from work to get errands done. Here's what i did: paid mobile phone bill, call Logitech about my excellent but broken keyboard, created an account with Pepco, informed my property manager of new accounts, spoke to a salesman about a new chair, fixed some teachers on the LCLI site, and added my rent to my bank's bill pay system.

Also, i got a letter notarized, got an oil change, and got my car's emission tested. The letter is just to change my address with a former employee!

The new diNovo keyboard really is great except for the fact that the space bar often doesn't work. Both Logitech and NewEgg were receptive. I have an RMA number to get a replacement.

For the last 8 months, i haven't been paying for gas and electric. Avalon has been paying them for me. So i reimbursed them and created my own accounts with the companies.

I'm excited about the new chair: HON 4901 (no, it's not that exspensive). I have about 80 fabrics i can choose from. I'll pick a variety of green. My seller will be sending me a sample of many fabrics.

After being so productive, i thought i'd treat myself to my favorite Indian food place India Grill. I let the owner pick my meal. It was fantastic, but i forgot it's name. All i know was, it's not on the menu.

Now it's time for another treat, World of Warcraft. I'm level 23!!
