I want this election over as well, just to get the damn commercials off the air!

I'm with you -- they are nasty nasty nasty out here aren't they? And not just the presidential commercials I'm talking about the governor's race and that hotly contested Senate seat.

Oh I know what you mean and if I don't ever hear some of those names again it'd be too soon!

As of today, I now have it in both rooms, and we have upgraded to IQ (similar to TIVO).

The added bonus is that I can now see all the normal TV channels too, whereas before I had either no signal or really bad signals and sound on the TV in the back room!

So far I have watched half a show on The History Channel, and now something on National Geographic.


We love our IQ!! Shame you only just upgraded, UKTV have been showing Larkrise to Candleford and before that Cranford. They have been really good, wholesome dramas!


My best thing today is:

Becky did her piano exam - we will have to wait and see how she did, but as you know for her to do it was amazing!
Nathan is away at a sleepover!

I have been thinking about upgrading for ages, but it was a case of finding the money. They came to the door offering free upgrade, free installation, a month free, and then agreed to do the second installation for $10 as well, so I couldn't resist. The interesting thing is I was under the impression that I was going to be getting one IQ and one normal Foxtel box but ended up with two IQs.

Well done to Becky.

The other best thing for today is that I finished changing the template over at Historical Tapestry. There is one little glitch still to fix but other than that I am pretty happy with it!

That was a good deal! We got out IQ when it started and was given the free upgrade and $10 charge, but no extra boxes! One in the family room would be fantastic!

This weekend was fantastic! Went to a country and western shin dig last night. They had bales of hay and saddles and western get up to decorate the hall. Was loads of fun to dress up in cowboy boots and stetsons and kick up your heels! Just got back from a princess house party this afternoon at my girlfriends...love their dishes and bakewear. Now, got to go back to work and pay for the stuff I bought! :o
