At long frigging last!! Miss Boats has managed to get hold of a company to come and sort out this ridiculous driveway gate saga … the damn thing was seriously cooked!!
Anyway, it turns out that the reason for all its nonsense – opening by itself, not opening, not closing, getting stuck, etc – was because there was a nest of geckos in the motor!! Shame, poor things. So we’ve chucked in a load of mothballs to keep them away and hopefully that will be the end of the gate crap! So there’s a tip for you – if your automatic gate is playing up, check for geckos (or ants!).
The same company is also sorting out the problem of the doorbell not ringing through to the office so I don’t have to keep answering it here in the house. At last … ringing doorbells or telephones and me do NOT get along well.
Speaking of ringing telephones, I got a call on my cell last night. Normally I NEVER answer my phone (everyone knows to sms me if they want to get hold of me), especially if the number comes up as “private”. But something made me take that particular call. It was the clinic, telling me that Son#1 was having an asthma problem and could I please organize a pump for him!
So I’ve just been to drop off the pump and I also took in a bag of “eat treats” for him too – some fruit juice and biscuits and stuff. I thought I was trying my luck with that one, but they were fine with it and said they’d pass it on =) They also told me that he’s doing ok!! They said he was looking comfortable, getting to know everyone and settling in really well. “And what a polite boy he is!” Hehe.
*grin* So I’m feeling 1000% better after hearing that. YAAAY!!
Big bear hugs and sloppy wet kisses, my boy … xxx
On a another note, our website move that started yesterday is ALMOST sorted … hopefully the DNS transfer is over and done with pronto!
And what an absolutely STUNNING day it is in Cape Town today! Just gorjis …
Right, I’ve lost 2 days of regular work now so I’ve got tons to catch up on. I’d better get to it before Miss Boats fires me again =)
*cranks up iTunes … can’t actually decide what to listen to …guess it’ll be my old favourite – Jeff Buckley is ALWAYS a good choice, I reckon*
